Do you also notice that your everyday office life is characterized by stress? My phone is constantly ringing, meetings flood my calendar and my inbox is bursting with emails. Sometimes I wish I had some support, especially when it comes to writing emails.

This is where ChatGPT can serve as a 2024 tool for efficiency – For example, to write an offer for a potential customer.

This tool transforms ideas and information into well-structured texts - I'll show you how it works.
Since using this tool, I have not only saved time efficiently, but also improved my communication with customers and colleagues.

In this article, I would like to show you how artificial intelligence can make your everyday office life easier and how you can use this innovative technology to write emails. I'll go through various scenarios and examples that you can easily follow. So let's get started!

Instructions: How to create emails with the help of ChatGPT

Okay, now that you're interested, let me give you a straightforward step-by-step guide to generating the content of your emails.

Free registration: ChatGPT account

ChatGPT Website

If you do not yet have an account with OpenAI to use ChatGPT, you can create a free account here.

After registering, you can immediately use the automatic text generator and compose an AI email. ChatGPT can ensure that your emails are not only composed, but are also easy to read.

Preparation: Effective ChatGPT prompt for e-mail replies

First you have to create a so-called prompt "Prompt" superior.
What is a prompt? Prompts are tasks/instructions that explain what the AI should do for you.

Make sure to include all important information, such as target group, subject, etc.

Practical example: Simple use of ChatGPT for an e-mail

To give you a better idea, I'll show you a concrete practical example of how you can use ChatGPT to create a
e-mail in the office.

Prompt: "Write an e-mail to Mr. Müller telling him to come to the meeting on August 10 at 11 a.m."

ChatGPT then responds:

Subject: Invitation to the meeting on August 10 at 11 a.m.

Dear Mr. Müller,

I hope you are well.

I would like to invite you to a meeting on August 10 at 11 am. The meeting will take place in our conference room 3. 

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the current progress of the project and plan the next steps. Your participation and expertise are of great importance for the success of the project.

Please make a note of this date and arrive on time. If you are unable to attend on this date, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can find an alternative date.

Thank you in advance for your participation and commitment.

Yours sincerely,

[Your name]  
[Your position]  
[Your company]  
[Your contact details]  

Please don't forget to check the text and adjust it if necessary before you send it - because ChatGPT can make mistakes.

Practical example: Extended use of ChatGPT - e-mail management

You can also give more precise instructions, such as:

Prompt: "Write an e-mail to Mr. Müller telling him to come to the meeting on August 10 at 11 am. He should bring the application folder with him. My name is Vanessa and I am the Managing Director of Bravo GmbH. If he has any questions, he can call me."

Here too, the AI follows all the information:

Subject: Invitation to the meeting on August 10 at 11 a.m.

Dear Mr. Müller,

I hope you are well.

I would like to invite you to a meeting on August 10 at 11 am. The meeting will take place in our conference room. I would like to ask you to bring your application folder with you to this meeting.

If you have any questions in advance, you are welcome to contact me by telephone.

Thank you in advance for attending.

Yours sincerely,

Managing Director
Bravo Ltd.

AI can therefore compose emails independently - and thus revolutionize everyday office life.

ChatGPT AI and data protection

Data protection is of great importance, especially in connection with the use of AI systems such as ChatGPT. It is therefore important to handle sensitive data entered into ChatGPT responsibly.

Personal data, confidential business information or other sensitive data should never be entered thoughtlessly.

Care should always be taken to comply with the data protection guidelines and regulations of both the company and the AI provider in order to ensure the safety of the data subjects.

In case of doubt, it is therefore advisable to refrain from entering sensitive information and to enter more general data instead.

How do you write a good email with ChatGPT?

ChatGPT helps you to write effective and professional emails. Here is a short guide on how to write a good email with ChatGPT:
Formulate a clear task (prompt). Example: "Help me write an email." The more specific your prompt is, the better the result.
Let the AI create a suitable subject line and salutation. You can also give specific instructions, such as "The subject line should contain 'Business meeting'."
Give ChatGPT details about the content of the emailsuch as the purpose of the meeting, date, time and location. The tool can structure this information and convert it into a clear, professional text.
Let ChatGPT end the email with a suitable farewellsuch as "Yours sincerely" or "Best regards."
Read through the email created by the AI and make any necessary adjustments. The text generator sometimes makes mistakes or cannot fully understand the context, so it is important to check the email before sending it.
If you are happy with the email created by ChatGPT - great!
If you are not satisfied, give feedback and try again. The AI tool learns over time and gets better with every attempt.

Can ChatGPT also reply to my emails automatically?

Yes, this is possible if it is programmed accordingly. However, this requires additional tools, such as a connection to a Make.com account. This account can automatically scan the emails and forward them to ChatGPT so that they can then be answered automatically.

What is a prompt?

A prompt is an input or request that you give the program so that it responds to it. It can also be referred to as a "task" or "instruction", as you give the program a specific instruction or question to which it should respond.

How does ChatGPT generate e-mail responses?

Think of the AI as a very smart computer friend. If you give it a task, such as replying to an email, this is how it works:
Read e-mail: First, the AI reads the email you have received. It's like your friend reading the letter you showed him.
Think about what to answer: ChatGPT then considers what would be a good answer. It uses all the knowledge it has learned. It's like when your friend remembers what you learned at school and makes the most of it to help you.
Write an answer: A reply will now be written. The tool takes care to be polite and helpful, just as you would with an important message.
Check answer: Sometimes the AI checks the answer again to make sure it makes sense and has no errors. Just like when you re-read your essay before you hand it in.
