Retool AI now available

Retool AI is a set of AI building blocks to help you create AI-powered apps and workflows in minutes.

  • Build apps and workflows powered by AI: Use pre-built AI actions to summarize text, classify images, extract entities, and more. OpenAI’s gpt-4 & gpt-3.5-turbo are available out of the box. You can enter your API key, and swap in other LLMs any time.
  • Create data-aware AI chatbots in 30 seconds: Upload PDFs, crawl websites, and connect SaaS tools into Retool Vectors, our all-new managed vector store. Ask questions about your data and get helpful answers instantly.
  • Code, query, and debug faster: Ask our AI assistant questions and it’ll generate code that just works, with context into your app’s components and data sources.

Sign up or log in to get started on Retool Cloud. Retool AI for Self-hosted Retool will be available in the next release, v3.12.

Augment any software with Retool Embed and Retool Portals

We're expanding beyond internal tools so you can build nearly any software for your business with Retool.

With this launch, we're adding two new products to help you:

  • Ship a secure, custom portal: Build and host portals for your customers, partners, and vendors fully on Retool with Retool Portals which manages signup, authentication, and permissions out of the box.
  • Augment existing software: Quickly add data and CRUD functionality to an existing app or portal with Retool Embed.

Both Retool Portals and Retool Embed are now available across Business and Enterprise plans.

To learn more about how Embed and Portals are changing the way you can build with Retool, watch the overview video.

You can read integration details in the docs to embed your first Retool app or build an end-to-end portal on Retool.

Return custom webhook data in Retool Workflows

The Response block in Retool Workflows allows for synchronous webhook runs. Workflows can now return data as a webhook response at any time during a run or upon completion.

The Response block works in conjunction with the Webhook trigger and enables you to configure your own responses. You can specify the HTTP status code and a JSON response body to return, which can include any data from the workflow. For example, use a workflow to look up a customer's mailing address based on their email, use multiple blocks to return different types of data depending on execution logic, or even use a Response block as an error handler to signal that something went wrong.

Response blocks are represented as a new block type; just drag out a block, select Response in the context menu, and your webhook will now wait until the Response block is executed to return. Check out the docs to learn more.

Power business automations with GPT-4 in Retool Workflows

Introducing the Smart Block, bringing the power of GPT-4 and AI into Retool Workflows.

Treat the Smart Block like a natural programming step in any series of tasks you want to automate: just drag a Smart Block onto the canvas, identify the dataset you want to pass in with your request, and complete your prompt with a set of natural language instructions. Then, just run the block and return your data for use in your automations: summarize hundreds of rows of raw product data, create entirely custom systems to classify or filter requests, or even execute AI-authored code––all in Retool.

The Smart Block is free to use and available now for all cloud organizations. To learn more, read the full announcement, or check out the docs.
