earlier today I was stuck with a formula for my Life Dashboard 2.0 doc
I almost started to ask here in the community but then I thought, let’s try ChatGPT.
It solved my problem in the first answer!

Immediately got me thinking to build a GPT-powered coda.io help chat bot…

How did you teached to chatgpt the coda’s formulas??? :)))
Also, it would be awesome to just “copy and paste” into chatgpt the “schema” of the table to have exactly the formula you need without the manual edits :)))

It’s impressed me a lot but I’m afraid it doesn’t have enough training data on coda to create complicated formulas. I’ve found it to be hallucinating a bit. Otherwise it’s great at summarizing what a formula does. I’m sure it’s gonna get better in no-time though, especially with GPT4’s improved logic, amazing potential!

The Coda team is developing this feature: ChatGPT + formula comment = auto comment，Clicking “auto comment” button will add a comment at the top of the formula to explain what the formula does.

Mario, the simple prompt “act as a coda formula expert” did the trick.
Not sure if it understands more complex formular problems but it’s definitely worth a try.

I asked it do something for me and it kept inserting excel formulas that coda doesn’t have. Each time I pointed this out it juts references a different excel formula lol.

Also most of the formulas didn’t actually work. So asking for basics things is cool but it do much of anything that’s complicated.

Cool! but definitely “limited”!
there should be a way to “teach” ai coda formulas, let’s see if coda take seriously ai implementation and design such a system!
