After @shishir reply on the Public Roadmap topic, I think that there should be a topic for everyone to share their own vision of the perfect Coda.
There are already a bunch of feature request, and visions in the welcome topic. The best is then to aggregate those visions in this topic, per users.
Best would be a list of features with a voting system. I tried to make a voting system in Coda, but I’m struggling for the moment (no time).
I’ll begin with a list of features for my perfect Coda :
- Bookmarks in canvas! With a bookmark floating pannel.
- Draw : I would love to be able to draw shapes that would contain text and create arrows to connect items.
- Mind maps : there could be another view in the shape of mind maps. It could come from tables, the rows represented by squares (like cards) and manually connected by arrows by the user.
- Blocks : I would love to be able to layout horizontally. Blocks could help. With the ability to drag and drop to arrange layout. Also, blocks could be referenced in documents in the same way of rows etc… It could be an incredible and powerful feature. We could think of blocks types in the same way as Airtable.
- Canvas Layout options : Horizontal canvas, free layout, static layout etc…
- A calendar view
- Variables, to add more power to to saved formulas
- A saved formulas and variables menu
- Filter list in every view. Ability to save and recall filters.
- Save Conditional Formatting
- Be able to copy/paste a table with the same conditional values and cells formatting for cross doc.
- Ability to save table templates.
- A better document hub : folders for docs etc…
- Option to have more hierarchy in the section view
Announced prototypes that would be perfect :
- Cross documents
- Buttons to trigger things
- Forms to enter data
- Mobile App (very important)
- Markdown, awesome
- Writing experience, more layout options, more format
- Card view should be at least as good as standards, with more options directly accessible from the view, a better experience etc…See the Card view topic
- Gantt should be zoomable
- More options for table groups : colors, formatting, etc…
- Select List in tables : automatically add new values to list when typing a new value in a cell
- Time in table : need a dialog box
- More charts and charts options
I’m a bit of a maniac for the Coda team. These are feedback I gave them privately a few months ago. I would like to know if my wishes are shared by the community
Next is up to the community to add their wishes!
