If you used the first way to add ChatGPT to your sheet, then you can do a lot with it. One of the most common use cases is that you can ask it to write anything, like a tagline, essay on something, etc. You can also chat with it freely. Not only this, but you can also generate taglines, and blog topics, write emails, clean up your lists, summarize the content, and much more.
1. Chat With ChatGPT
To chat with ChatGPT, simply type =GPT(“say hi”) in a cell, and it’ll respond immediately. Now, to continue talking with it, type =GPT(“[say what you want to say]”) and press the Enter key. Once done, it’ll respond to your question. We’ve demonstrated the same in the below-mentioned image.

5. How To Change the Creativity Level
One of the best features of the GPT for Sheets and Docs extension is that it lets you change your creativity level. No doubt, it would be creativity, but not so much. So, if you think that ChatGPT’s replies aren’t creative, then you can increase the creativity level.
You can set the creativity level between 0 to 3. By default, it would be set to 0. If you want to increase your creativity level, we suggest following the below instructions:

To start, type =GPT_LIST(“write five taglines for a new car detailing shop”) in a cell and press the Enter key.
