Einstein Copilot Studio empowers Salesforce Administrators and others with authority and management capabilities. It offers the ability to implement influential generative AI to enhance user productivity, while maintaining control over the usage of generative AI processes and the extent of their reach.

This platform comprises three fundamental components: Prompt Builder, Skills Builder, and Model Builder.

Prompt Builder

Users can construct prompt templates, specify how these prompts should be anchored in Salesforce data, and swiftly activate them for users.

Skills Builder

Model Builder

Users can choose the AI models they want to utilize, whether it's Salesforce's proprietary large language models, which have been undergoing training for years, or one of their preferred partner models, such as Google Cloud's Vertex IX or OpenAI.
