Have you ever wished for a ChatGPT tailored specifically to your needs, be it for language learning, technical support, or creative endeavors? Well, the good news is, now you can create your own custom GPTs with ease! Whether you’re a Plus or Enterprise user, the journey to crafting your specialized GPT starts this week at chat.openai.com/create.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

Step 1: Open GPTs Editor (Requires GPT Plus Subscription)

Before diving into creating your own GPT, make sure you’re subscribed to OpenAI ChatGPT Plus. This subscription is a must to access the GPTs Editor, where your customization journey begins. Once subscribed, head over to the GPTs Editor at https://chat.openai.com/gpts/editor or find the “My GPTs” option in your profile. This is your starting point for building a GPT that’s uniquely yours.

Step 2: Create GPTs

Now, in the GPTs Editor, look for the ‘Create’ tab. Here, you’ll talk to the GPT Builder. Tell it what you want your GPT to do, like coming up with new ideas or helping with computer code. Once you ask, it will start crafting your custom GPTs behaviour.

It will ask some more questions as you build to give your GPT a unique perspective. Tip: It can also generate names and icons for the GPTs.

Step 3: Configure your GPT

After telling the GPT Builder what you want, it’s time to personalize it in the ‘Configure’ tab. This is where you add the special touches:

  • Set Icon: Choose an image for your GPT. You can either ask the GPT Builder to create one or upload one you already have.
  • Additional Instructions: Provide detailed instructions here. Tell your GPT how it should act, what it should do, and what it should avoid doing.
  • Prompt Starters: These are example sentences or questions to help users start talking to your GPT.
  • Knowledge: Add extra information that your GPT can use. Remember, anything you upload here might be used in your GPT’s responses.
  • New Capabilities: Turn on extra features like Web Browsing, DALL·E Image Generation, and Advanced Data Analysis to make your GPT even more powerful.
  • Custom Actions: If you want your GPT to do special tasks using other websites or services, you can set this up here. Provide the details about these external services, like where to connect and what to do. If you’ve already made some tools or plugins, you can connect them to your GPT too.

With these settings, you’re not just creating a GPT, you’re crafting a digital assistant that’s perfectly suited for your specific needs.

Just click “Save” after you are done.

Later, anytime you modify your GPT, you can click “Save” and click “Refresh Icon” to play with it again.
