How do you use Assistants on websites?


I have a few questions for people who use OpenAI Assistants to communicate with website visitors or customers.

  1. Did you create the UI yourself or did you use ready-made solutions?
  2. Is communication with the end-user only text-based, or can the user, for example, send a file?
  3. Do you use one assistant or many and transfer the end-user between them?
  4. What languages do you support?

We have just released a solution that allows you to embed assistants on the website in the form of a widget: Free Chat Interface for OpenAI Assistants | OpenWidget and we are planning the next steps in development. Information from you will be very helpful. :bowing_man:

I got answers the second question - I know that handling files from end-users is not perceived as a priority. This may only be useful in the case of a possible transfer of the conversation to a real human agent.

Two people that contacted me assumed that adding an assistant to a website would be more difficult than it actually was. For this purpose, we have created a short tutorial that shows what this process looks like:

thanks for all the messages, please keep it coming - directly here in the thread, to my dm or email.
