Whether you’re a seasoned author or drafting your second blog post ever, writing assistance can speed up the creative process. It’s even better if that assistance includes intelligent suggestions informed by your own writing.
Today, we’re announcing Context IQ - our set of natively integrated experiences across Microsoft 365 that predict, seek, and suggest information people need, right in the flow of their work.
The first experience to be transformed by Context IQ is Microsoft Editor. Editor already helps you write with confidence - correcting grammar and spelling across documents, email, and the web. You may be familiar with some of Editor’s newer capabilities, such as how it gives context-relevant suggestions as you type and auto-completes your sentences in places like Outlook.com, Word Online, and more.
Now, Context IQ takes Editor to another level. Here are some scenarios Editor using Context IQ can help with:
Even before most information employees were sent home to work in early 2020, people struggled to juggle multiple tasks and projects. The average employee experiences 56 interruptions a day and spends an estimated two hours each day recovering from distractions. Interruptions disrupt the flow of work and they can be external – a colleague emails you to send a report – or internal – searching for information or files so you can include it in something you’re writing.
Microsoft Editor with Context IQ speeds up work and minimizes these distracting searches. Almost one in five US office professionals ranked “digging for files they need” as the No. 1 barrier to remote work, according to a recent study of 1,000 US office professionals from marketing research firm Wakefield Research and data analyst company Elastic. Fifty-four percent reported wasting time search for files in online filing systems.
Whether you’re writing in Outlook, Microsoft Teams, or Word, Microsoft Editor with Context IQ brings the content you need to your fingertips so you can complete tasks faster and stay in your flow. Watch our Ignite video to see Editor with Context IQ in action.
Anticipate trying these exciting capabilities for yourself in Editor with Context IQ in 2022 calendar year. We’ll be sure to let you know as we near the release date.
