ChatGPT revolutionizes communication with its proficiency to generate human-like text responses. However, chances are you may need a chatbot for a specific task – be it teaching, coaching, or purely for entertainment. This is where GPT Builder enters the picture. It’s a special feature designed to let you build your own tailored ChatGPTs, or simply GPTs, guided by straightforward natural language instructions.

In this article, I will guide you on how to utilize the GPT Builder to create, set up, save, and share your personalized ChatGPTs, and the best part is, there is no coding required.

Understanding GPT Builder

GPTs, the designed versions of ChatGPT conceived by OpenAI users, are established by clear-cut English instructions directed to the GPT builder. This tool processes these commands and molds your GPT accordingly. Notably, it allows users to create multiple custom GPTs without restrictions instead of sticking to just one. Furthermore, GPTs can be configured with advanced capabilities like internet browsing, DALLE·3 based image generation, and executing code. 

Not just that, the GPT Builder even manages to incorporate the uploaded knowledge directly into the GPT’s functionality. This is a major advancement from the traditional method of manually copying and pasting content from various sources.
