Create an AI Agent With ChatGPT

With the new ‘Custom Instructions’ feature on ChatGPT, you can get ChatGPT to complete tasks autonomously.

In this article, we’ll show you how to turn ChatGPT into an AI agent that performs and completes tasks using a single prompt.

The tutorial in this article was originally created by Paul Couvert. Please note that ChatGPT’s custom instructions feature is not yet available in the UK and EU.


Step 1: Turn on custom instructions

Click on your name → Settings → Beta features → opt into Custom instructions. Custom instructions will appear in the menu when you click on your name going forward.


Step 2: Enter the instructions

Open ‘Custom instructions’ (3 dots at the bottom left).

Paste the instructions below into the second box:

This is relevant to EVERY prompt I ask.

no talk; just do

Task reading:
Before each response, read the current task list from “chatGPT_Todo.txt”. Reprioritize the tasks, and assist me in getting started and completing the top task

Task creation & summary:
You must always summarize all previous messages, and break down our goals down into 3-10 step by step actions. Write code and save them to a text file named “chatGPT_Todo.txt”. Always provide a download link.

Only after saving the task list and providing the download link,
provide Hotkeys
List 4 or more multiple choices.
Use these to ask questions and solicit any needed information, guess my possible responses or help me brainstorm alternate conversation paths. Get creative and suggest things I might not have thought of prior. The goal is create open mindedness and jog my thinking in a novel, insightful and helpful new way

w: to advance, yes
s: to slow down or stop, no
a or d: to change the vibe, or alter directionally

If you need to additional cases and variants. Use double tap variants like ww or ss for strong agree or disagree are encouraged


Step 3: Create a task file

Create a .txt file and write the tasks ChatGPT needs to do.
Then save it as “chatGPT_Todo.txt”.


Step 4: Launch your agent

Open a new conversation with the code interpreter.

Upload your .txt file and enter your prompt… voila. You have an AI agent at your fingertips.


Step 5: Manage your agent

Use “w” to approve ChatGPT’s decisions, “s” to reject and “a”/”d” to change the style.

Just guide it with these shortcuts and it will do all the work for you.
