Greetings, fellow Coda enthusiasts!
I’ve stumbled upon a fascinating use case that has sparked an exciting feature request in my mind. Picture this scenario: I have six inputs from the user, and what I really wish for is the power to add or modify an entire column effortlessly in one go. Essentially, I want to be able to fill a specific column based on this list of inputs in a single operation. It’s a small yet powerful enhancement that would make a world of difference in managing data effectively.
Being the genius problem-solver that I am, I managed to come up with a temporary workaround that did the trick. Here’s what I did: I created a separate column and inserted all the values as a neat list in each row. But wait, there’s more! I had to channel my inner magician and manually split that list, filling each row based on the row ID of the current row. It worked, but boy, was it a tedious and time-consuming process, especially when dealing with more complex projects.
So here is the deal: I firmly believe that Coda would reach new levels of awesomeness if it introduced a mind-blowing native feature. Picture this: users would be able to effortlessly add or modify an entire column in one go. Imagine the time saved and the frustrations avoided when we no longer have to rely on workarounds. This feature would truly revolutionize the way we manage data within Coda, skyrocketing our efficiency to remarkable heights.
The proposed feature would enable users to provide a list of values and automagically populate the target column with those values in a single operation. This would greatly streamline tasks that involve bulk updates or initial column population, saving users valuable time and effort.
Introducing this feature would be a game-changer for Coda users, providing them with a seamless and robust data manipulation capability. It would elevate the overall user experience to new heights, enabling faster and more efficient workflows. We, as users, would wholeheartedly appreciate the convenience and productivity gains that this feature would bring to our Coda journey.
Thank you for considering my feature request. I eagerly look forward to witnessing the evolution and continuous improvement of Coda in the near future.
Edit: If running two for loops in parallel is available, that would solve this feature by running one loop on the rows and another on the input values list, something like zip in python. But, it seems two parallel for loop is not available at the current momentum.
