Guidelines for Box AI inquires
Box AI for Notes works best for content generation and refinement. As you ask Box AI to generate text, consider these suggestions:
- Be as specific as possible. Use parameters, such as asking for numbered lists, brevity, and central themes or key points. For example:
- OK: list some ideas on [product];
- Better: Can you create a numbered list of ideas for advertising [product]?
- OK: draft an email on [topic]
- Better: Can you draft an outline for an email to my team regarding our recent quarterly earnings?
- OK: generate a job description template
- Better: Can you generate a template for a job posting on software development?
- Focus mainly on content generation.
- Always refine your response if it’s not exactly what you’re looking for, as it may take a few reiterations to get the results you want.
