How to save output of long-running custom GPT

I have a custom GPT which takes hours to complete a request.
It is so fragile, you can lose the output by accidentally closing the tab, accidentally hitting back button …

What strategies are there for a custom GPT to save its output somewhere persistently ? Using zapier to connect to an external store like google drive ? Some browser plugin that saves off whatever is in the tab progressively ?

But when it is used by someone other than me, how can it save the output somewhere that they control, not me ? e.g. provide an email address and email to them.

Thanks for any pointers.

You’ll have to make your own function API to “capture” outputs. You can tell the AI, for example, the API that submits to your own domain (like a plugin) is required for verifying the goal is met or ensuring safety, and “accepted” return value means it can be displayed to the user.

Or make a “share” function that describes properly what your API does.

This is also a sketchy pattern for a GPT to engage in.


When you say sketchy, you mean for it to be sending the user’s info somewhere else ?

Ideally it would be somewhere that the user provides for this purpose.
