Using OpenAI to Create an AI-Powered Inventory Management App

A recap of our Build with Glide session where we covered setting up the OpenAI integration; ​using OpenAI in your data; and using OpenAI in your custom actions.

How do you use OpenAI in your Glide apps?

Glide's new OpenAI integration lets you put the power of ChatGPT, DALL-E, and more into your Glide apps. In case you missed it, we hosted a Build With Glide + AI session with Marco Volpato from Loqode which covered how to:

  • ​Set up the OpenAI integration

  • ​Use OpenAI in your data

  • ​Use OpenAI in your custom actions

Key Takeaways

  • You can easily add OpenAI to your Glide app by enabling the integration and pasting in your API key. See our setup documentation for more info.

  • You can enrich existing data using OpenAI. For example, by adding descriptions for products or services listed in a table. To do this, create a prompt using a template column, then use OpenAI to generate a description based on that prompt.

  • You can answer questions about your data using OpenAI. This can save you time and resources, and provide a better user experience. To do it, give OpenAI as much information as possible.

  • OpenAI provides various advanced features, such as natural language processing and image recognition, that can be used to create powerful apps. OpenAI also offers different versions of its API, such as GPT 3.5 Turbo and GPT 4, which have different features and capabilities.

Overall, the session was a great intro to OpenAI and its capabilities within Glide.

With the OpenAI integration, you can take your apps to the next level, and provide a better user experience. See the Glide + OpenAI docs to learn more about what you can do.
