The plugin can then scan through the stored PDFs to answer user queries or retrieve specific details.

PDF Download from URL

Users can provide a URL link to a PDF, and the plugin will validate the URL, download the PDF, and store its content in a vector database.

Querying with Document ID

If users have a document ID (doc_id), they can directly query the document without needing to provide the URL again.

Information Extraction

The plugin can scan through the stored PDFs to find answers to user queries or retrieve specific details.

Page Number Reference

When providing answers, the plugin specifies the page number where the relevant information was found, making it easier for users to locate the information in the original document.

Very straight-to-point article. Really worth time reading. Thank you! But tools are just the instruments for the UX designers. The knowledge of the design tools are as important as the creation of the design strategy.
