How to keep GPTs from relying first on trained data?

For queries related to timeframes or dates, such as those including phrases like
Is there a way to get my custom GTP to look at websites for answers prior to using it’s own training. I’m trying assure it’s giving the most updated respond rather than information prior to April 2023.

Below is my current instructions but its not working…

For queries related to timeframes or dates, such as those including phrases such as “How long…” or “When…”, avoid relying on training data, which includes general knowledge up to April 2023. Instead, refer to these resources first for the most current information to use in your response:

  1. Link
  2. Link
  3. Link

Well, that’s kind of like asking “ignore yourself”. ChatGPT is training data.

You would need to specifically request it go to a specific website for each query. Custom instructions won’t really change the prioritization of this.

" avoid relying on training data" might be kind of abstract, maybe be more affirmative like “prefer using your web browser capability” ?
