Use ChatGPT with typedesk

We are thrilled to announce our integration with Chat GPT - a remarkable AI text generation tool that can help with numerous tasks. We have seamlessly integrated Chat GPT with typedesk, and in this article, we will demonstrate how you can integrate it into your workflow.

But in the first place, please make sure you run the latest version of our desktop app (ChatGPT is not yet available in our web app and Chrome extension) on typedesk.com/download.

Add your OpenAI API key to typedesk

At typedesk, we believe in keeping things transparent when it comes to pricing. We don't charge any additional fees for using ChatGPT in typedesk. However, you will need to add your API key in the preferences to fully utilize the ChatGPT features.

  1. Create your account on OpenAI if you haven't done so already (https://platform.openai.com/signup)
  2. In the top right corner, click on your name and select "View API keys"
  1. Create a new secret key and copy the key once you're done
  2. Paste the key in the Integration section of typedesk app settings

First method: using built-in ChatGPT shortcuts

With typedesk, you can avail yourself of built-in shortcuts to employ ChatGPT with the text displayed on your screen. This feature enables you to effortlessly restructure content or quickly respond to an email.

  1. Select any text you'd like to process in ChatGPT. For example, we'll reply to an email.
  2. Press Alt+K (you can change that in the app settings).
  3. typedesk shows a list of options to choose from, like rephrase text or fix spelling. For our example, we'll select "Quick reply".
  4. Select a quick reply, or type your own quick reply at the bottom.
  5. After a couple of seconds, typedesk will show a preview of the reply.
  6. If you're happy with the reply, click in the reply section of the email to place your cursor where you want to reply, and select 'Continue' in typedesk to automatically insert the reply. You can also press Retry in typedesk to get another variation of this response.

Rephrase a piece of text

Here's another example. Suppose you have a lengthy piece of text that you wish to quickly rephrase.

  1. Select the text you want to rephrase.
  2. Press ⌥+K on Mac or Alt+K on Windows (you can change that in the app settings) and select "Rephrase".
  3. If you're happy with the result, hit Enter and typedesk will replace the original text for you.

Second method: building your own custom prompts

Although the built-in ChatGPT shortcuts are useful for beginners, you may discover that your business required more customization. For instance, for SEO purposes, you might need to identify related keywords from a single base keyword. This is where custom prompts come in! Let's explore how they work.

Create a custom prompt

To create your prompt, simply open the template editor and use it as you would any other template. Variables can be used to transform a simple prompt into a dynamic and robust one that can be easily customized each time. For example, if you wish to generate a list of N keywords that relate to your initial keyword, the format would appear like this:

Once you're happy, make sure you enable "Open AI" in the response sidebar before saving the template, and assign a shortcut to that template.

After you save your prompt, go to your preferred editor and enter the newly created shortcut.

typedesk has a prompt builder that enables you to personalize the number of keywords you require and select the base keyword you prefer to utilize.
