The assistants

Translation Assistant

The translation assistant

The Translation Dialog is a feature in Composum Pages that allows users to easily translate text attributes into different languages. When editing a page, users may encounter a text field with a translation icon. By clicking on this icon, the Translation Dialog opens. In the dialog, users can see the texts for all languages that have translations for the selected attribute. If there is only one source language, the translation request is triggered immediately. Users can review the translated text, and then choose to accept it (which populates the text field) or cancel the operation. The dialog includes elements such as a source language selector, a translation display area, accept and cancel buttons, an error message display, and a loading indicator. The Translation Dialog aims to provide a user-friendly and intuitive way for users to efficiently manage translations of text attributes in Composum Pages.

Page Category Assistant

The page category assistant

The page category assistant displays the current categories along with suggestions of the AI. After the AI suggestions have been generated, you can select or deselect current categories and suggestions as needed, and then save or abort. If you feel the need to add further categories or edit them, please select ‘Accept’ and use the original page properties dialog for further modification. The page categories can then enhance the SEO potential of the page.

The content creation assistant

Content Creation Assistant

This dialog is probably the most powerful and flexible tool Composum AI offers. The user is able to provide a prompt that describes what content should be generated and how it should look like, and can select a source from which to generate. It is possible to select one of a number of predefined prompts and use them as they are or refine them as needed. A press of the “Generate” button triggers the content generation. It's possible to edit the generated text or switch back and forth in a history of generated content for this field, to select the best attempt.

There is also an optional dropdown menu from which text length recommendations can be selected. Additionally, the dialog is resizable to accommodate large amounts of text, and it displays a loading indicator to indicate when the system is processing a prompt.

Text sources (base text)

Selecting one of these options replaces the ‘Source’ text area with the chosen text.

  • Widget: The AI is provided with the text contained in the field you were editing.
  • Component: The text content of the component you were editing, including subcomponents. Useful e.g. for suggesting headlines for components or sections.
  • Current Page: The text content of the current page. Useful e.g. for writing summaries, introductions, page descriptions etc.
  • Last Output: The current content suggestion shown in this dialog, for iterative improvement of a text.
  • Hand edited content: You can provide your own text as a base for the AI to work with.
  • No Text Added: If you like to generate text by just giving the AI some instructions that do not refer to any current text content, this is your choice.
  • External URL: An URL field is provided, where you can enter the URL of a web page. The text content of the URL will be retrieved into the ‘Source’ text area.
  • If the component itself or sibling components contain paths into the JCR - e.g. links to other pages or references to parts of other pages - then up to 5 of these paths are listed as additional options. Selecting one of these options replaces the ‘Source’ text area with the chosen text.
  • If some of those references are images, these will be offered as well. The images can serve as input for the AI ( currently the beta version of ChatGPT vision preview) e.g. to generate a description for the image.

Predefined prompts

The predefined prompts are valuable as they are, but please take them as an inspiration what you can do with the text. Please note that it is possible to replace the predefined prompts with your own library of prompts. Some examples are:

  • Summarize: The selected text is summarized.
  • Introduction: The AI writes an introduction for the text.
  • Conclusion: The AI writes a conclusion for the text.
  • Expand: The AI uses the provided notes as inspiration to write a text that expresses the main ideas and themes present in a businesslike informative style.
  • Headline: The AI writes a headline for the text in a businesslike informative style.
  • 10 headline suggestions: The AI provides10 headline suggestions for the text in a businesslike informative style.
  • 10 headline + subheadline suggestions: The AI provides10 headline and subheading suggestions for the text in a businesslike informative style.
  • Question: The AI answers a question based on the given text.
  • Improve: The AI improves the text into a businesslike informative style, fixing orthographical and grammar errors.
  • SEO Description: The AI creates a description for a web page with the given text, usable for search engine optimization (SEO).
  • Describe Image: somewhat experimental: the AI describes a selected image.

Tips and Tricks for using the Content Creation Assistant

To use the make an excerpt from or rewrite of an existing text, you can copy and paste that text into the existing dialog field and select the text field as base text, or paste it into the content suggestion field and select that as base text, and then specify in the prompt what you want to be done.

The dialog can be maximized to accomodate more text, and there is also a help window accessible with the “?” icon.

If you are not satisfied with the generated text, there are several ways to improve it:

  • You can simply retry by pressing the “Generate” button again.
  • You can add hints to the prompt how the text should be written. For example “Use passive voice and an informative style.” or “Make the text engaging and motivating.”

If you want to generate headlines for a component, you could select the component's text as base text and use the “10 suggestions for headline” prompt. Generally, to get ideas for short texts it can be a good idea to ask the AI to list a number of suggestions.

Even though that's not the primary use of the assistant, you can (creatively) use it to get answers from the AI about general questions, or have it use the page content to answer your questions. Just open the assistant on any text field in the page, use “current page text” as base text or even “no text” and ask away. Of course you might want to press " Cancel" after such use.

Sidebar AI

The Sidebar AI

The Sidebar AI can serve as a complementary addition to the content creation assistant. It's primary focus is not so much content creation, but to use the AI to generate reports about the text content of the page or individual components that can help you improve it, or provide you with the possibility to ask questions about it's responses in a chat format.

There is also a number of predefined prompts you could select, but you are invited to modify them or write your own requests to the AI. The dialog also has a history, which is specific to the displayed page.

Text sources (base text)

  • Page: The text content of the current page.
  • Component: The text content of the selected component including subcomponents.
  • No additional source: If you like to discuss / chat without referring to any current text content, this is your choice.

Predefined prompts

We collected a number of prompts that might be useful for you when improving the text. As always, please feel free to extend / clarify / refine them, or to write your own requests. (Again, please note that it is possible to replace the predefined prompts with your own library of prompts.) Among the default prompts are:

  • Review: The text is checked for good text flow, contradictions, repetitions, redundancy, etc.
  • Content Flow: Checks for problems with the flow of the tex
  • Question: The AI answers a question based on the provided text.
  • 10 headline suggestions: Ten headline suggestions for the text are generated using a businesslike informative style.
  • Summary: A brief summary of the main points and themes in the text is generated.
  • Simplification Suggestions: Identifies parts of the text that could be simplified and provides alternative suggestions..
  • CTA Suggestions: Five distinct call-to-action (CTA) phrases are suggested to motivate further engagement with the content or brand.
  • Content Gap Analysis: Tries to identify relevant topics or subtopics that are not covered.
  • Relevance Evaluation: The content of the text is evaluated to determine if it is relevant to a specific topic or purpose.

Using the Chat feature

In this dialog there are several ways to improve the result. It is possible to edit the prompt and resend it (or even just retry), and it is possible to use a chat to ask further questions about the response and have the AI elaborate. At the bottom of reach response appears a new prompt input field, where it's possible to continue in a conversation. There is, however, a limit in the length of conversations, so it's better to start fresh when the topic is changed. You can always go back using the history, and even continue the old conversation, which will be saved as a new history entry.
