      • Small executions will be cheaper
      • Large executions will be more expensive
    • Save 50% by setting up your own OpenAI API key!

        If you use your own OpenAI API key in ChatGPT for Excel, we will now bill you the same amount as OpenAI bills you. For example:

      • You spend $10 on OpenAI
      • We bill you $10
      • Your total cost is $20

    Nov 6, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvement

    In this release, the value of Max tokens can be set automatically for you, when you are using a GPT-4 model with the GPT-4 safe mode enabled. With the Auto option, Max tokens is automatically set according to the number of tokens in your input:

    Max tokens = model token limit - input tokens

    This allows you to benefit from the full token limit of GPT-4 without setting the value of Max tokens manually.

    November 2, 2023 - ChatGPT for Word

    Improvement

    October 30, 2023 - GPT for Sheets and Docs

    Improvements

    In this release, we've made the following changes:

    • GPT for Sheets settings are now saved at spreadsheet level. This means that you can configure distinct settings for each spreadsheet. When you open a new spreadsheet, it automatically uses your most recently changed settings. But, any changes you make to the settings after that will only apply to that specific spreadsheet.
    • Executing a function with an Anthropic model without an API key now displays a clear error message with instructions.

    October 27, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvement

    The maximum value for Max tokens is now set 200 tokens below the model token limit. For example, gpt-3.5-turbo has a capacity of 4096 tokens, so you can only set Max tokens up to 3896. This provides room for your input and prevents hitting the max token limit due to an excessively high Max tokens setting.

    October 25, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Bug fix

    The Generate formula and Explain formula result fields no longer have a content overflow issue. You can now use the scroll bar to view long answers.

    Bug fix

    This release fixes an issue where the absence of the Anthropic version could lead to errors with Claude models.

    September 12, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvement

    We've modified GPT formula cache behavior to improve consistency and reduce unnecessary recalculations:

    • When caching is enabled in your spreadsheet, formula refresh is now restricted to error cases.
    • Caching is now formula-centric, and ignores sidebar settings. If the formula is unchanged, results are consistently retrieved from the cache.
    💡
    Please note that when using a value from the cache, the formula result might therefore not reflect your latest sidebar settings.

    September 6, 2023 - GPT for Docs

    Improvement

    This release includes the following improvements:

    • Model settings are now saved within the add-on, ensuring they are available when you reopen your document or use the add-on in a different document.
    • We have renamed and improved the ability to attach custom instructions to prompts. Previously called Set behavior and configured per prompt, this feature is now named Custom instructions and can be found in the Model settings section. With this update, custom instructions are set at the model level and are now saved within the add-on along all other model settings.
    • The Model list now shows only the models that are available to your currently set API keys.
    • When you select a Claude model, the default value for Max response tokens is now set to 10000. This change is designed to maximize the benefits of Anthropic models' larger token capacity when transitioning from a model with a smaller capacity.
    • text-ada-001, text-babbage-001 and text-curie-001 models, which will soon be retired by OpenAI, are demoted in GPT for Docs.

    Bug fixes

    • The formula replacement tool now displays the number of formulas replaced in near real time, updating the count every 7 seconds during processing.
    • If GPT_EXTRACT cannot find the value to extract, it will return blank instead of a REF error.

    June 29, 2023 - GPT in Excel

    Improvement

    This update includes new formula examples on GPT in Excel home page and a refreshed design.

    Big fix

    GPT_CLASSIFY doesn’t hallucinate categories anymore and only returns results from the provided list of categories. If no category matches your input text, the function returns #N/A.

    June 28, 2023 - GPT in Excel

    Improvement

    The execution rate limit has been reduced from 10 per second to 3 per second. This prevents reaching OpenAI rate limits and avoids errors.

    June 27, 2023 - GPT in Excel

    Announcement

    The following functions were added to the GPT in Excel function family:

    • GPT_CLASSIFY classifies a given text into a single category.
    • GPT_CONVERT converts from one format to another. For instance json to table, or xml to json.
    • GPT_EXTRACT extracts data (like email addresses or company names) from a text.
    • GPT_FILL magically fills or cleans a range from a few examples.
    • GPT_FORMAT formats dates, currencies, addresses, names, etc. Fixes capitalization. And so much more.
    • GPT_SUMMARIZE summarizes text according to a given format (three sentences by default).
    • GPT_TABLE is like GPT, but outputs the results in a table. Very practical when the output is a table.
    • GPT_TAG applies user-defined tags to text or automatically suggests relevant tags if none are specified.
    • GPT_TRANSLATE translates text from one language into another. Works better if you specify the source language.

    June 21, 2023 - GPT for Docs

    Improvement

    Dutch and Italian are now available as prompt languages.

    June 21, 2023 - GPT for Work

    Improvements

    With the latest update of our GPT for Work website, our pricing calculator and LLM response time tracker benefit from a redesigned user interface and integrate additional models.

    June 20, 2023 - GPT in Excel

    Announcement

    We have simplified the pricing for GPT in Excel. Now, 1 credit = 1 execution. This is a change from the previous system where 1 to 8 credits could be used per execution.

    June 19, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvement

    You can no longer input out-of-range values in Creativity and Max tokens fields.

    June 16, 2023 - GPT in Excel

    Bug fixes

    This release resolves an issue with the cache not functioning when the sidebar is closed. Now, the cache operates effectively regardless of the sidebar status.

    June 15, 2023 - GPT in Excel

    Improvements

    This version includes the following improvements:

    • Gpt-3.5-turbo-0613: GPT in Excel now operates with this newly released model from OpenAI.
    • Reduced latency due to improved performance of the Microsoft authenticator.
    • Clearer display of your remaining credits.

    June 15, 2023 - GPT for Sheets and Docs

    Improvement

    GPT for Sheets and Docs now supports the gpt-3.5-turbo-16k model from OpenAI. This lets you use context windows up to 16,000 tokens, a big step up from the previous limit of 4,096 tokens.

    June 12, 2023 - GPT in Excel

    Announcement

    We are excited to announce that our GPT in Excel add-in is transitioning to a paid model, effective immediately. You don't need to create and set up your own OpenAI API key anymore. Instead, buy credit packs that last 90 days. Each execution of GPT functions then costs credits.

    More functions are also coming soon, stay tuned!

    June 12, 2023 - GPT for Sheets and Docs

    Improvement

    gpt-3.5-turbo is now the default model in GPT for Sheets and Docs.

    The response time of gpt-3.5-turbo has significantly decreased which makes it a better trade-off between reliability, quality, and cost than text-davinci-003.

    June 1, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvement

    The Replace GPT formulas with result feature now handles large sheets with 50,000 cells or more to replace.

    May 18, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvement

    The latest version of the GPT for Sheets add-on brought several improvements:

    • Error messages are more specific and provide clearer guidance

    Bug fix

    The Replace GPT formulas with results feature now disregards cells containing GPT formulas that are in error, loading, or paused states. This ensures that only valid formulas are processed.

    May 12, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvement

    GPT_MAP can only handle a maximum of 1300 rows due to Google's limitations. To aid in this, we've included a clear error message. If you encounter this message, you can resolve the issue by executing GPT_MAP in smaller batches to stay within the limit.

    May 12, 2023 - GPT for Docs

    Announcement

    We've added the gpt-4-0314 model to our GPT for Docs extension!

    May 10, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvements

    In this new version of GPT for Sheets:

    • We now only retrieve spreadsheet information when the GPT formulas controls section is open. This reduces unnecessary data usage.

    Bug fix

    We've updated the URL for sidebar assets in GPT for Sheets to fix blank sidebar issues.

    May 3, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvement

    We just launched a new version of the GPT for Sheets add-on that brings back the Set API key option in the Extensions menu.

    April 27, 2023 - GPT for Sheets and Docs

    Improvement

    OpenAI has reduced the RPM (Requests Per Minute) limit for free trial users from 20 to 3. This change could lead to errors. We have identified this specific error and updated the error message to recommend an upgrade.

    April 19, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Improvements

    The sidebar now opens automatically when you install the add-on.

    April 12, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Announcement

    • We have added the following functions to GPT for Sheets:
      • GPT_SPLIT: Splits text semantically, e.g. by section, paragraph, customer. This function outputs all splits vertically in a column.
      • GPT_HSPLIT: Splits text semantically, e.g. by section, paragraph, customer. This function outputs all splits horizontally in a row.

    Improvements

    • You can now choose a model directly from the Selected Model Status list, enabling you to view the current response times of the models to guide your choice.
    • To ensure optimal performance, we've updated the default model for new users to text-davinci-003, following observed latency issues with the gpt-3.5-turbo model.
    • We've released a new version of the following functions:
      • GPT_TRANSLATE: we've introduced an [instructions] parameter for you to provide specific guidelines for your translations.
      • GPT_TAG and GPT_CLASSIFY: We also added an [example] parameter for you to provide a table of examples with two columns: the first column should contain the inputs and the second column should contain the outputs.

    April 12, 2023 - GPT for Docs

    Improvements

    With this release, you can now:

    • Mark a prompt as favorite to save it permanently, ensuring it remains accessible even after you close the document or the add-on.
    • Select the language in which you write your prompts and custom instructions to optimize the model's response.

    Bug fix

    We solved an issue that was causing quotes to appear in the output.

    March 29, 2023 - GPT for Work

    Announcement

    A new page is now available on the GPT for Work website allowing you to track OpenAI and Azure OpenAI APIs response times.

    March 29, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Bug fix

    The GPT_FILL function now neatly displays the output in a single cell when provided with a single-cell input.

    March 15, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Announcement

    We are pleased to announce that GPT for Sheets now supports GPT-4, just 24 hours after OpenAI's official release of this model. Enjoy the latest advancements in AI within your Google Sheets environment!

    Improvement

    The GPT_MAP function now includes the top_k parameter. This parameter lets you specify the number of matching values to return per search key. By default, it returns only the best match.

    March 13, 2023 - GPT for Sheets

    Announcement

    We've introduced a new template showcasing how to use GPT functions in Google Sheets. This includes basic copywriting, data categorization, email address extraction, and more within your Google spreadsheet. Open the template and click Use template to duplicate it and test the GPT functions.

    March 11, 2023 - Lots of improvements

    • GPT_TABLE and GPT_EXTRACT now work better with table headers
    • GPT_CLASSIFY can now use the text-embedding-ada-002 model for classification, which will prevent GPT from inventing unwanted categories. To use it, simply specify the model in the function parameter
    • GPT_TAG has a new top_k parameter which allows you to control the maximum number of tags to be returned
    • Quotation marks are better handled so that they are not trimmed when they’re wanted
    • Errors of authorization linked to multiple account should be better handled

    March 6, 2023 - Small improvements

    We’ve made improvements to GPT_FILL, GPT_TABLE and GPT_EXTRACT

    March 2, 2023 - ChatGPT turbo, baby!

    OpenAI released the new chatgpt gpt-3.5-turbo model last night, and it is now the default model in in all functions of GPT for Sheets and Docs. Enjoy 10x cheaper costs, faster and better quality responses.

    We turbo released this, so if it breaks anything, (1) we’re sorry and (2) please let us know here

    Other improvements:

    • Specifying tags in GPT_TAG is now optional: GPT_TAG will come up with tags on its own
    • GPT_TAG and GPT_CLASSIFY output in lowercase if categories are lowercase
    • We now automatically detect fine-tuned model most frequent separators
    • A few other details that make the overall experience better

    February 24, 2023 - Map values with GPT_MAP

    New functions:

    • GPT_MAP which enables you to map the values of two columns to find the best matches. You can use it to map different spellings or even categories that are semantically related. This function uses the text-ada-002-embeddings model which is extremely fast and very cheap
    • GPT_TREE which is more of an experimental function to generate trees of content in your spreadsheet.

    We’ve also added a GTP function for those who find the letter T faster than the letter P! 😊

    Fine-tuned models:

    You can now use your fine-tuned models in GPT for Sheets! Simply specify your model in the model parameter of your GPT function.

    We will automatically recognize or add the stop sequence of your prompt.

    Improvements:

    • Datetimes are now better handled. (the devil really is in the details)
    • We now better handle incorrect values in all parameters
    • GPT_CONVERT now works better
    • The default max_tokens parameter has been increased to 500 in order to avoid to many cut responses

    February 20, 2023 - Real numbers and dates

    The devil is in the details!

    ChatGPT outputs pure text by default. When this text contains numbers or dates, we want them as numbers or date objects in our spreadsheets in order to be able to operate on them.

    GPT for Sheets now correctly recognises numbers and dates before writing them to your spreadsheet. This makes it much more usable to work with tables of data.

    February 14, 2023 - Improved parsing

    We have improved parsing of input in the prompts sent to OpenAI which will result in better quality output.

    We have also improved our preset prompts in GPT for Docs for better output quality.

    February 8, 2023 - Added examples

    We’ve added an examples template spreadsheet directly accessible from the add-on menu.

    Replacing formulas now works on all GPT functions.

    February 6, 2023 - Improved error messages

    We’ve made error messages easier to understand which should help you understand what to do when you input a parameter incorrectly, hit a rate limit, expire your free trial or when OpenAI servers are unavailable.

    January 31, 2023 - New preset functions!

    GPT for Sheets

    • Woohoo! We just released a bunch of new functions that will make it much easier to make some frequent operations without writing any prompt:
      • GPT_TAG to apply tags. Simple and easy
      • GPT_CODE to generate code in your spreadsheet. Yes some people want to do this!
      • GPT_EDIT to edit text. By default it fixes spelling and grammar
      • GPT_EXTRACT to extract things like email addresses or companies from a paragraph. Works remarkably well
      • GPT_CONVERT to convert cells and ranges from one format to another: html, json, json-ld, nl-json, tables, csv, markdown. Incredibly powerful
      • GPT_SUMMARIZE to quickly summarize some text
      • GPT_TRANSLATE to quickly translate some text
      • GPT_CLASSIFY to classify into a single category (different from GPT_TAG where multiple tags can apply)
      • and finally GPT_CREATE_PROMPT which will help you create a prompt from many different cells and ranges in your spreadsheet by just listing them one by one as arguments
    • Fix a bug when the value parameter of GPT_LIST was empty
    • Improvements to prompt and response parsing that make our functions more robust
    • Changed the default cache setting to disabled for new users, and automatically enable it after 100 executions

    January 26, 2023

    GPT for Sheets

    • GPT_LIST now supports a range as a prompt. This makes it much easier to give write a good, specific, and detailed prompt.
    • Replace formula with values now works on GPT_FILL
    • We now check if you’re the owner of the spreadsheet before you can set an API key
    • We have switched the order of parameters in all functions: max_tokens now comes before model, since:
      • tweaking the max_tokens parameter is actually useful and needs to be done frequently for longer-form content
      • there is very little reason to use another model than the default which is text-davinci-003.

    GPT for Docs

    • OpenAI responses are correctly split in paragraphs when relevant
    • New tooltips have been added to the interface

    January 24, 2023

    GPT for Sheets

    The GPT function can now take range as prompt. This is a huge improvement, and makes it much easier to give write a good, specific, and detailed prompt.

    January 20, 2023

    GPT for Sheets

    We’ve released a new magical function: GPT_FILL ! This one is really incredible to see in action. All you need to do is feed it some example rows and it will fill a range intelligently. Super useful for cleaning lists, where the right prompt can be difficult to put together.

    First release of GPT for Docs!

    • You can now use the add-on from Google Docs, which is much more suitable for long-form content
    • You can type your prompt directly in the document or in the prompt box

    January 18, 2023

    GPT for Sheets

    This update brings two cost management features:

    • Replacing formulas with values, from the Extensions menu: once you’re satisfied with the answers of GPT, you should replace the formulas with values so that they never get recalculated.
    • Cache management: we now cache answers of the same prompt by default for a duration of roughly 6 hours. This means that every answer you get will be reused if you ask the same question again or the formula gets recalculated will help lower your OpenAI costs. You can of course disable the cache if you prefer to explore variations rapidly and do not want to reuse answers. The cache is per spreadsheet.

    January 12, 2023

    GPT for Sheets

    We’ve released a new function: GPT_LIST !

    It makes it as simple as pie to get one item per cell when you want multiple items at once, like “5 taglines for an ice-cream shop”.

    January 7, 2023

    GPT for Sheets first release!

    It all started with a simple GPT function. The little function that could.

    Bug fix

    The Replace GPT formulas with results feature now disregards cells containing GPT formulas that are in error, loading, or paused states. This ensures that only valid formulas are processed.
