Rationale

Trouble?

For troubleshooting, consider the following:

  • Brian can summarize three types of documents (native PDF, pptx and docx) as well as regular text
  • If you have a scanned PDF, please convert it to Word or PowerPoint using Brian and then ask for summarization using the converted file
  • Please share with Brian the actual file(s) – not a link (e.g. to sharepoint), Brian has no access to your file system
  • Please attach one file only – if you have more files, trigger more requests
  • Files having characters like % \ / : * ? ” < > | #  + in their file names are not supported on MS Teams
  • Brian handles files of up to 20MB – if you have a PDF you can ask Brian to split it in two parts
  • Brian can not process encrypted files – some files are protected from processing even if it is not visible for you – so, if Brian tells you the file is encrypted, he can not handle it
