Characters are counted as the inputs and outputs that are processed by Flowshot.
Inputs include any prompts or examples sent to the AI, while outputs are any of the generated results. You can track your monthly character count from the Flowshot sidebar.
Flowshot makes it really easy to use AI to automate repetitive text-based work, such as:
Start with AI prompts like
=AI("Write a product description for:", A1) and work your way up to training custom models when you have enough examples.
Choosing between AI prompts, Autocomplete and custom models depends on your use case.
Custom models can be used with Autocomplete, as well as via API and Zapier integrations.
Custom model training and usage is added to your monthly plan. Training and usage is billed at cost price — that is, the rates that providers such as OpenAI list on their website.
If possible, we'll negotiate better rates with certain providers or help you bring it in-house with open source models hosted that have predictable fixed monthly costs.
For =AI() and Autocomplete, we use a blend of in-house AI models that we've optimized for speed and performance. We also use providers such as OpenAI alongside our own AI stack. Our algorithm automatically selects the best model for your task — there's nothing you need to do!
For custom models, we currently support OpenAI, AI21 and Hugging Face models.
