Mural is firmly committed to creating tools and developing partnerships that help teams harness the power of AI to solve the most pressing challenges faced by teams in the enterprise today.

Integration with Microsoft 365 Copilot
Microsoft selected Mural to be among a group of premier partners — as well as the only visual work platform — supporting Microsoft 365 Copilot at launch. With its Microsoft 365 Copilot integration, Mural is taking the next step to providing a seamless visual collaboration experience and saving organizations time as part of the central Copilot experience. With the integration, members can leverage simple, natural language prompts to streamline their daily tasks. Using Mural and Copilot, a sales representative can easily find the customer discovery mural for their account; a designer can quickly summarize a brainstorming mural with hundreds of sticky notes; and a product manager can efficiently retrieve a project kickoff mural template — and much more.
Mural AI Features
Mural’s purpose-built AI features empower teams to kickstart their projects, broaden their horizons, and work more efficiently together. Mural AI features help teams automate redundant and routine tasks, quickly synthesize information, and generate new ideas so they can spend their time doing the higher-level thinking that humans do best.
- Mind maps: Mind maps are a great visual tool for following ideas and seeing where they lead. Mural AI can generate mind maps automatically from a single prompt and allow users to keep following the thread, empowering teams to create and develop great ideas faster and more effectively than ever before.
- Actions: Actions helps members save time and simplify workflows with natural language prompts to quickly and efficiently complete common tasks. Summarize a group of sticky notes, get ideas to jumpstart a brainstorming session, generate icebreakers and more from a single entry-point that’s intuitive and easy to use.
- Clustering: When teams are generating ideas together, it can take a lot of time and energy to find those common threads that are critical to moving forward with confidence. Mural’s AI clustering makes finding and sorting ideas a breeze, paving the way to new insights and enabling a smoother, faster-decision making process so teams can focus on the bigger picture.
Mural’s product is built to streamline workflows and allow knowledge workers to focus on the work that matters.
“The new AI features in Mural are a brainstorming game changer. Pushing people to really dig deep to be creative can be challenging. The ability to quickly generate a mind map to jumpstart thinking will be very powerful. Using AI to quickly group ideas will cut significant time out of a workshop normally spent just ‘organizing’ thoughts. Now we can focus on creating thoughts.” – Cindi P., Operations Lead, Professional Services Company
The Future of AI
A recent study carried out by Mural found that nearly two-thirds of all knowledge workers are excited and optimistic about AI’s ability to help teams work together more effectively. Specifically, they recognize the power of AI to reduce repetitive tasks and automate processes. Managers are even more optimistic about AI than individual contributors (88% vs 74%). Mural’s AI features, along with its Copilot integration, empower teams to kickstart their projects, broaden their horizons and work more efficiently together, all while ensuring thorough security and privacy from start to finish.
