Custom instructions

It is possible to pass your own instructions that will be pre-loaded into the agent every time you use it.

This is useful for setting rules that are specific to you and how you want to use the agent on a day to day basis.

You can set your custom instructions by clicking on Settings > System and adding to the Custom instructions section.

The Foundation model list is found on the System settings page

Custom instruction examples

How you set up your instructions is up to you, but we recommend using a list. For example:

- When I ask for the top events from Mixpanel, always format the results in a table with the percentage change in descending order

- When sending an email always set the sender name to Operations Department

- When extracting sentiment from support tickets, only show me the email address of the user and if their sentiment was positive or negative, exclude other information.
