# What to use the Extract data with ChatGPT step for
Extract unstructured data from any text. We recommend combining this ChatGPT step with the 'Get data from a webpage' Step. This design pattern creates a powerful bot that scrapes and then extracts unstructured data from web pages. Requires a Chat GPT3 API key, which is stored locally for security, meaning any Axiom using this step will not run in the Cloud, only on Desktop.
You can use this step to:
- Scrape unstructured data from text
- Exract details from Linkedin profile data
- To customise DM messages
- As part of a larger Axiom that scrapes and responds to comments
- To extract data from an API
If you have an idea for a different ChatGPT feature? let us know we can add it.
# How to configure the Extract data with ChatGPT step
# ChatGPT API key
Enter your Open AI API key here, this can be found on your Open AI account page. (opens new window)
The key is stored locally, and will be removed from your computer if you remove the Axiom extension. As a result this will not work with the cloud scheduler.
Enter data to extract values from by clicking 'Insert data'.
# Extract values
Enter a comma-separated list of items you want to extract from the given data, or select a template.
When available a preview of the data is shown.
