Benefits of customizing Super Summaries

Here’s the thing: Not every hat fits every head.

Sales folks look for different insights than recruiters. Likewise, marketers have other priorities than product managers.

Everyone wants to extract what matters most to them from meetings. It’s more than just a summary—it's about capturing the details tailored to their role.

Customizing Super Summaries allows you to do exactly that, providing the specific metrics and action items you need.

Tips for customizing prompts

Here are some tips for customizing prompts like a pro:

Tip 1: Well-defined prompts = better insights.

Write prompts that are short, direct, and easy to understand. It helps the AI know what you’re asking for.

Edit Fireflies Super Summaries tip - Write well defined prompts
  • Use simple, unambiguous language. Avoid complex sentences.
  • Get straight to the point—don’t beat around the bush.
  • Focus prompts on extracting specific meeting insights.

Instead of “Summarize the key things discussed in the meeting,” ask, “What were the 3 most important decisions made?”

Remember, custom summaries are only as good as the prompts.

Tip 2: Include likely keywords and phrases

Include words and phrases likely to be said during the meeting in your prompts. It gets easy for the AI to detect the most relevant information.

  • For a sales prompt, include keywords like "pricing," "discounts," "compliance," "quota," and "customer lifetime value."
  • For recruiting, use words like “experience,” “skillset,” “culture fit,” “leadership principles,” and “career goals.”

Example prompt: Summarize the candidate's experience, skills, culture fit, and career goals.

Tip 3: Get granular with specific questions

Asking precise, detailed questions yields more specific insights vs. broad questions.

Edit Fireflies Super Summaries tip - Get granular with specific questions

Rather than just asking for “feedback,” ask precisely:

  • “What specific concerns did the customer express about the product features?”
  • “Which qualifications and experiences did the candidate emphasize as relevant for this role?”

Tip 4: Test and refine prompts

It may take a few iterations to craft the perfect prompt. Test draft prompts by asking one question at a time to identify areas for improvement.

Edit Fireflies Super Summaries tip - Test and refine prompts

Look for missed insights or inaccurate extracts, then refine the prompt.

Tip 5: Create separate prompts for meeting types

Tailoring prompts for different types of meetings—like sales calls, client consultations, interviews, and brainstorms—helps you extract targeted insights.

For instance, a sales prompt might ask, "What objections did the client raise?" while an engineering standup prompt could be, "What roadblocks are hindering the current sprint?"

Tip 6: Update regularly as needs change

As priorities and goals shift, revisit prompts to keep them relevant. Monthly or quarterly reviews can help you keep them optimized.
