Today we are announcing the availability of our new building block - Automation!
Automation helps move the product closer to us realizing our vision of helping makers create documents as powerful as apps. Now you can automate workflows associated with your data via an automation rule that lives right next to the data. You can now create a rule to send you daily stock quotes, or a rule to remind you to water your plants, or a rule to send out summary emails on a schedule. The possibilities are endless.
To get started simply click on the robot icon in the toolbar to open the Automations panel and create a rule. Automation rules have two parts: WHEN, where you tell the rule when to run and THEN, where you tell the rule what to do. We have also added few examples in the product to inspire you. To try an example simply click on Create and follow the prompts.
We also have a starter kit in our template gallery with a lot more examples of things you can do to help fuel your imagination. Looking forward to seeing what you Coda with automation!
PS - We also announced the feature on Product Hunt today. If you have been using automations we would love if you can share your experience on Product Hunt and upvote us if you feel that we deserve it.
