    • In the bottom left of the Zap editor, describe your desired workflow in the prompt box, then click the send icon .
      • This will expand the Copilot dialog box.
  • In the chat window, Copilot will suggest a workflow outline.
    • To accept a step, click the plus icon next to the step.
      • If you already have existing steps in your Zap, the numbered step in Copilot will replace the same numbered step in your existing Zap.
    • To select all steps, click Add all steps to Zap.
    • If you want Copilot to suggest a new workflow, click  Replace all steps to Zap.
    • Copilot will prompt you to finish setting up each step.
