1. Generate a custom, auto-updating summary of page content.

Generate a custom.

Databases allow you to aggregate pages and categorize them using properties. As you gather more and more information, it’s helpful to get a
high-level summary of what pages contain, without having to open each item one by one.

By asking AI to generate a summary of the page content, you’ll get a quick a heads-up about what a page is about, the information it contains, and whether it’s complete or lacking
information.

Selecting AI summary from the properties menu automatically summarizes all your database entries. However, if you want to be more specific about the style and length of your
summary, add an AI custom autofill property.

2. Automatically extract action items.
