Let's talk about Copilot and how it's like having your own guardian angel when it comes to sensitivity labels in Microsoft 365. Imagine you're working on a document or presentation, and you want to maintain the sensitivity level of the original content. Copilot steps in seamlessly, ensuring that the sensitivity label from the source file is inherited along with its protection settings.

Picture this: You're using Copilot in Word to draft a document or in PowerPoint to create a presentation. The source material carries a sensitivity label like "Confidential\Anyone (unrestricted)," complete with protection settings like a footer that boldly states "Confidential." When you create new content based on this, Copilot ensures that the same sensitivity label is applied automatically, maintaining the confidentiality of the information.

If you want to see this magic in action, check out the demo from Ignite 2023's session on preparing your enterprise for Microsoft 365 Copilot. It's fascinating to see how Copilot seamlessly replaces the default sensitivity label with a more fitting one based on the referenced file, all while keeping you informed with handy notifications.

Now, here's the cool part: even if you're using multiple files to craft your masterpiece, Copilot is smart enough to prioritize the sensitivity label with the highest importance for inheritance. And don't worry, if you ever need to tweak or change the label, Copilot gives you the flexibility to override it with ease.

With Copilot by your side, you can trust that your sensitive information stays protected, allowing you to focus on creating without the hassle of managing labels manually. It's like having a reliable assistant who understands the importance of keeping your data safe and sound.
