List of my favourite ChatGPT prompts that will greatly enhance your efficiency as a product designer.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT is all over the place with people using it for all sorts of stuff ranging from cheating on their assignments to building products. Recently, I started using ChatGPT to get rid of my blank canvas syndrome and ideate faster. You can use it for writing, researching, getting inspired and analysing.
Here are ten compelling ways to use ChatGPT as a designer.
Many times, you may be assigned the task of creating a particular feature for your product, such as a text-based AMA feature. If you’re looking for similar products with this feature, simply ask ChatGPT to provide you with a list of relevant options.

Curious about the flow of a feature? Instead of downloading an app and spending time figuring it out, why not ask ChatGPT?

Ask ChatGPT whatever you want to understand. You can further use prompts like “dumb it down” or “explain with real-world examples” to help you understand better.
Sample prompt: Explain API to a product designer in simple terms. Use analogies and examples that they can relate to.
Every feature has some basic user requirements to be covered. Use ChatGPT to list them down and use as your checklist while designing.
