Integrating External Data with Microsoft 365 Copilot

Integrating external data with Microsoft 365 Copilot involves using Microsoft Graph connectors and plugins. These tools allow for the pre-indexing of read-only information from various data sources, which can be used to retrieve relevant information for prompts within Copilot. Additionally, plugins can access real-time data from external APIs and perform actions such as editing tickets or sending emails.
