A feature of several of the latest plugins is that they are rapidly expanding ChatGPTโ€™s capabilities to export the chat output into different formats. These can easily be combined in your workflow with other plugins.

  1. Doc Maker - Easily converts text into various file formats such as DOCX, XLSX, PDF, CSV, TXT, HTML, XML, JSON.
  2. Telegraph Export - Exports your text to Telegraph swiftly and conveniently.
  3. CSV Creator - Transforms any text into a well-structured CSV file.

๐Ÿง  ChatGPT gets a memory with OpenAIโ€™s latest feature: Custom Instructions

Another exciting new Beta feature was launched this week by OpenAI. Custom Instructions gives you the ability to share things with ChatGPT that it will consider in its response. The instructions are added to all your conversations going forward (you can change or delete them at any time).

Iโ€™ve taken the new feature for a test run and must say itโ€™s amazing. There have been some previous plugins aiming to do the same such as Memory Bank, but this native feature is easier to use and much faster. Plus, Iโ€™m less concerned about where my data is going (although still somewhat concerned!).

โ€

Hereโ€™s an example of how you can use Custom Instructions for ChatGPT:

โ€

Step 1: Enable the feature

To activate Custom Instructions, go to your settings inside ChatGPT, navigate to Beta Features, and switch the toggle to โ€œonโ€. It also works in the iOS app!

โ€

Step 2: Give it relevant information about you

Hereโ€™s an example of background info you can give ChatGPT about yourself to improve the output it gives. Notice the bullet point about me having barista training โ˜•๏ธ (purely fictional)

โ€

Step 3: Tell it what kind of output you would like

Tell it what it should take into account in the output, such as a signature for emails. There are many possibilities with this. For coding tasks, you could ask for the output in a code block, for example.

โ€

Step 4: Write a prompt and let ChatGPT use the information to tailor the output to your needs

Awesome! Barista skills mentioned โ˜•๏ธ, formal tone and e-mail signature used. The new feature is also fast, and works seemingly without any delay compared to the plain GPT-4 model without custom instructions enabled.

โ€

๐Ÿ”— Plugin combo of the week

Custom Instructions is going to be a highly useful feature in combination with plugins, as it can give the plugin both background information as well as instructions on how to format the output, in order to make responses personalised and more helpful.

Try this: Use Custom Instructions + Clay to format highly personalised, professional e-mails to people in your network.

๐Ÿ“ฐ Bing search, Webpilot and Web Requests plugins are down! What are the alternatives?

After OpenAI disabled the Browse with Bing feature on ChatGPT earlier this month, the alternative plugins Web Pilot and Web Requests have also been experiencing some issues/downtime.

Hereโ€™s a working option if you need to do Google searches: Browserpilot. In my experience itโ€™s a bit slower than the other alternatives, but hey, at least it works!

If your purpose is to read the content of specific links, you can find several decent options for this under the Web Content Access category.

OpenAI originally disabled the Bing feature temporarily on July 3rd, citing issues with inappropriate content display and respect for content owners' rights, and it hasnโ€™t been back since.
