Experiment with various AI prompts, prototype new AI features, and foster collaborative innovation within your team. Issues and Problems We (I) have had:

  1.  It is not good at dealing with coding prompts as of the beginning of 2024.  Quite often it wastes credits and does not provide any code or if it does provide code it is 95% of the time not good.  I’m better off directly interfacing with chatgpt.
  2.  Initially like many crappy Google Sheets Apps/etc. it would refresh the damn formulas all the time.  Its not completely fixed but you can keep running a button here that will make the output static so you don’t make the Google Sheet(s) unusable or just WASTE all your credits like it did on me.  They have it documented here “Google Sheets sometimes annoyingly refreshes formulas. This button replaces Al,INFER, and WRITE formulas with their results.”
    So that can manually be fixed by using this button: Save Functions Button Save Functions Button – Prevents Google Sheets from Re-running Formula
  3.  I find it hard to use many of the functions besides AI() and AIWRITE() personally.  See what you think. Conclusion
