Where can I find GPT Builder?
To access GPT Builder, the first essential step is to subscribe to ChatGPT Plus. Remember that the price is $20 per month. You can also opt for ChatGPT Enterprise.

On the right columnyou can preview what your GPT will look like and how it will behave. It will appear after you send a few instructions to the bot.
You can let yourself be guided by the bot, which greets you with the message: “ Hello ! I’m going to help you build a new GPT. You can say something like make a creative that will help to generate visuals for a new product or make a software engineer to help format my code. What would you like to create? “
At the bottom of the left-hand column, you can type your answer to the question in the dialog box. This is also where you can enter your instructions for refining and customizing your GPT, and ask the bot to make revisions.
A small paperclip icon on the left allows you toupload files such as Word documents or Excel tables. This option is useful for supplying additional data to your GPT.
For example, it is possible to attach a document detailing your brand’s style or your legal obligations, to ask the robot to take them into account. You can also attach images to ask it to create an image in a similar style!
Write instructions as detailed as possibleThe bot can process several thousand characters. However, this is only the first step.
Once the instructions have been submitted, GPT Builder will start building. A purple icon indicates that the process is underwayThis may take several minutes.
During the operation, the robot will probably ask you several questions to complete your instructions. This will give him a better understanding of the type of behaviors and reactions you expect from your GPT.
Create a logo for your GPT with DALL-E 3
In particular, the GPT Builder bot can ask you for the name you want to give your GPT, and the type of logo you want. This is a circular badge that will appear next to your GPT name within ChatGPT.
So you can easily find it in the list. Afterwards, you can share your GPT using the link or even publish it on the GPT Store. The name and logo will be visible.

Please note that the Preview area will become inactive again while GPT Builder makes the requested changes, but will be available again after the update. The process may again take a few minutes.
