Hi Laura,
This is very helpful. I recently found a free transcribe & summarize AI tool for YouTube videos ( NoteGPT - YouTube Video Summarizer with AI. I tried the first tutorial from Kai and it seems to work rather good (see below). Maybe a summary beneath the links in the forum could be beneficial for the forum? What do you think? I can help, if needed.

PS Apparently there is no shortage of this kind of tools.

The video covers a detailed tutorial on using the free portfolio tracking tool called Portfolio Performance. It explains how to download and set up the tool, add various assets like stocks and cryptocurrencies, track transactions, dividends, and overall portfolio performance. The tool allows customization of asset classes, visualizations, and comparisons with benchmarks like the S&P 500. The video highlights the benefits of consolidating all investments in one place for better tracking and analysis. (from another tool app.notta.ai)

That’s exactly how I see it - a very good suggestion. Thank you very much for your offer to help. :smiley:

However, help is technically impossible to implement because only the author of a post has the right to edit the post. Or the individual posts would have to be made editable by @Thomas.

I will try to optimise the tutorials I have uploaded according to your suggestion.

Cheers, Laura


To further improve the findability of individual pieces of information, I would also find it useful to establish an editable β†’ FAQ section in the English-language area.

The first post is now a wiki and can be edited by everybody.
