Storytell Update: Enhancing the AI Experience with Auto Submit, Redesigned Knowledge Panel, New Transformations, and More

Hey users! I'm excited to share some of the latest enhancements we've been working on to make your Storytell experience even better. We've been listening closely to your feedback and have implemented several new features and improvements to the platform to make everyone's experience better.

Auto Submit: Eliminating Extra Steps

We know that every click counts when you're working with AI. That's why we've introduced auto submit for campaigns where files are required. Here's how it works:

  • When you upload the required file, we check that the initial prompt was answered with a predefined Storytell response
  • We verify that only one file was uploaded and no other actions were taken in the thread
  • If these conditions are met, the recipe prompt is automatically submitted

No more manual submission after uploading - Storytell intelligently handles it for you. This enhancement is based directly on your feedback, and we're thrilled to deliver a smoother, more intuitive experience.

Knowledge Panel Redesign: Putting Knowledge Front and Center

The knowledge panel is a crucial part of the Storytell interface, allowing you to easily upload and manage files for each thread. We've redesigned the knowledge panel and moved it to the right side of the screen for better visibility and access. Key benefits include:

  • More prominent placement for increased discoverability
  • Cleaner layout by separating knowledge from thread management
  • Resizable panel that remembers your sizing preferences

With this redesign, working with files efficient and user-friendly than ever.

New Transformations: Supercharging Your Content Workflows

Storytell's text transformation capabilities, such as rewriting for brevity or expanding with more detail, are powerful tools for crafting the perfect AI-generated content. We've added exciting new transformation options, including:

  • Rewriting entire conversations from different perspectives
  • Summarizing exchanges for various audiences (e.g. "explain like I'm 5")
  • Extracting key takeaways or action items from a discussion

By continuously expanding our transformation library, we aim to give you the ultimate flexibility in tailoring responses to your exact needs.

Magic Links: Simplifying Sign Up and Login

We're always looking for ways to reduce friction and make it easier for users to get started with Storytell. That's why we've introduced Magic Links for sign up and login. Now, instead of requiring a Google account, users can simply enter their email and receive a secure, one-time link to access their account. Benefits include:

  • Lowered barrier to entry for new users
  • Streamlined login process for existing users
  • Increased flexibility for users without Google accounts
  • Enhanced security through unique, expiring links

BONUS: Unlocking New Possibilities with File Format Support

We're integrating Apache Tika, a powerful toolkit that will allow us to extract text and metadata from over a thousand different file types. Some benefits of implementing this include:

  • Dramatically faster processing times for documents of all sizes
  • Normalized HTML output for improved compatibility with language models
  • Ability to handle an expansive range of file formats
  • Scalable architecture to support viral content surges
  • Enhanced security through containerization
