Can the new custom bot feature help with the individual display of sequential steps?

Hello, I’m not sure I fully understand what the capabilities of the new custom bot feature actually are.

I’m trying to build a custom chat that would automatically pull information about certain topics from a news feed for a certain period of time, summarize each article, comment on each article, and eventually build little tweets to advertise the outcome.

However, when I try to do this, it seems to either do everything in one go, or just one of the steps. It doesn’t seem to be able to sequentially process each step, even though I’ve asked it to do it, and it’s accepted the prompt.

Am I missing something in terms of what this is used for? Should I use the API instead? But if so, wouldn’t I be just recreating the interface for ChatGPT?

Thank you for your help!
