What is a prompt?

A prompt is a term used in the field of artificial intelligence to refer to an instruction. In our case, it is the instruction that Upmeet will follow to prepare your meeting summary.

Preparing a prompt

Your prompt should be as precise as possible. The clearer your instructions, the higher the quality of the summary and the better it will meet your expectations. Ideally, a prompt should contain the following information:

  • Context: What type of meeting is it? Who are the participants? What is the subject of the meeting?
  • Sections: What sections do you want to see in the summary? (Example: Introduction, Objectives, Decisions, Actions to be taken, etc.)
  • Must Include: Are there specific elements you want to see in the summary? If so, be as specific as possible.
  • Summary Length: Do you want a long or short summary? Is there a minimum or maximum number of characters?

The best element you can provide in a prompt is an example of what you expect. Here is an example of a prompt that illustrates this:

This meeting is the company's daily standup. Each participant says what they did yesterday, what they will do today, and if they have any blockers. I want a summary with this format [Participant 1: What they did yesterday: ... What they will do today: ... Their blockers: ... Participant 2: ...]. Do not include off-topic discussions.

Trying my prompt

Feel free to make multiple attempts to find the prompt that works best for you. You can test your prompt by selecting one of your meetings and then clicking Regenerate.

You can also ask Upmeet a very specific question if you are looking for particular information about the meeting.

In the next section, you will find prompt examples to help you prepare your own.
