Help me, AlliedGPT

AlliedGPT is customized with AGM-specific prompts to maximize efficiency and relevance. Here are some prompts to try this week:

  • AGPT can summarize for you - and it doesn't just have to be text. Copy/paste a table into Ask Anything or even upload an Excel file to Ask a Doc and prompt the tool to summarize the contents for you.

  • You can use AGPT to shorten more long-form copy into concise bullets for pitch decks, summaries and more by going into Ask Anything, pasting your content, and asking the bot to provide you with concise bullets.

  • Use this prompt to quickly generate ad headlines when you enter a product, goal and platform.
