Magic Fields are AI-powered custom fields. They leverage the data you have on your contacts in folk to create (almost) anything you want!

How to create a Magic Field

To add a magic field in folk:

  • Create a new custom field with the + column

  • Select "Magic field" type

    • Enter your prompt: a prompt is an instruction, or request, to the AI (you can check our prompt examples for inspiration)

  • Click on generate (or command + enter)

  • To apply the same prompt to multiple contacts, select all cells and hit command + enter

The Magic Field will be visible in your table pipeline view (as a field), on the contact’s profile and you can use it as a variable in your Messages.

How Magic Fields work

Whatever prompt you type into a Magic Field is processed by AI. Magic Fields are most powerful in folk when you use variables, which lets the AI pull on the data you have stored in folk, to generate highly customized content.

You can select from the suggested variables or type “/” to add any other variable.

Check out some of these prompt examples to get inspired.
