We have two big product updates to announce that give you as the researcher complete control of the creative process of using AI in Notably.
First, you can now create a custom AI template to ask anything about your research. Create a template inspired by your company's values or personas, your favorite research framework, a fun workshop activity– anything you can imagine.
Secondly, we’ve released the entire library of prompts that power Notably's AI templates for Enterprise customers to view, copy, or use as a starting point for a custom template.
Both of these updates introduce prompting to the experience in Notably. Prompts are like the source code between the templates and AI that tell it what to do. They contain a set of specific questions and instructions to ask of the data, and writing them is both a technical and creative skill.
Writing a prompt for your custom AI template will be how you tell Notably what you want it to look for in your research and how you want the output (either a summary or insight) to be formatted.
Once you get comfortable with writing AI prompts, you can create anything you can imagine. To showcase what’s possible and to help you get started with prompting, here are 10 ideas and boilerplate prompts to use in Notably on your research today.
Custom AI templates in Notably enable teams to standardize the process of debriefing and formatting customer interviews. By using a consistent template, teams can ensure that all relevant information is captured uniformly. This standardization not only streamlines the analysis process but also makes it easier to compare and contrast different customer interviews. With these templates, you can also ensure that the formatting aligns with your company’s branding and reporting style, enhancing the professionalism and readability of your reports.
Using custom AI templates helps in coaching teams to ask more insightful and structured interview and survey questions. These templates can serve as guidelines, ensuring that questions are not only relevant to the research objectives but also phrased in a way that elicits detailed and useful responses. Additionally, AI-driven suggestions can help in refining questions to reduce bias and increase clarity, leading to more effective data collection.
Transforming research goals and plans into an insight template is another way to use Notably’s custom AI templates. Directly evaluate your findings against your initial objectives, ensuring that your research stays on track and is aligned with your goals. They can also highlight areas where additional research might be necessary, providing a structured approach to ongoing research efforts.
Custom AI templates can be immensely powerful for conducting desk research. They enable researchers to tap into a vast repository of knowledge and use AI to identify trends, patterns, and advancements specific to their industry. This not only saves time but also ensures a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter, allowing for more informed decision-making.
With Notably’s AI templates, you can integrate your favorite design thinking frameworks and synthesis methods into your research process. This integration means that you can create a repeatable and reusable tool, rather than starting from scratch each time. This approach not only saves time but also ensures that the proven methodologies of design thinking are consistently applied across all research projects.
Create your own AI-powered templates for better, faster research synthesis. Discover new customer insights from data instantly.
Crafting a template around your company’s brand values and vision ensures that all research insights are communicated in a way that resonates with the broader organization. This alignment guarantees that the findings are not only relevant but also support the company’s overarching goals and messaging, fostering a stronger connection between research outcomes and business strategy.
Custom AI templates in Notably allow you to delve into past research to uncover and understand tribal knowledge within your organization. By asking the right questions and analyzing historical data, you can uncover invaluable insights that might have been overlooked or forgotten, thereby enriching your current research with deeper context and understanding.
Notably's AI templates can help with identifying new research opportunities. By analyzing existing data and insights, you can uncover new threads and directions for further exploration. This proactive approach to research helps in constantly evolving your understanding and keeping your strategies aligned with the latest trends and developments.
One of the more unique aspects of custom AI templates is the ability to bring an element of playfulness and curiosity into the research process. This approach makes research more engaging and enjoyable, encouraging teams to explore and experiment, which can lead to more creative insights and a deeper love for the research process.
Lastly, the most significant advantage of Notably’s custom AI templates is the ability to ask unlimited questions about your data. This feature opens up a world of possibilities, allowing researchers to explore every angle and aspect of their data, leading to a more comprehensive and detailed understanding.
