Welcome to our first run of the Community Hackathon!
I started using Coda in February 2018 and have loved learning from all the creative ideas in the Community. If you’re like me and enjoy building on each other’s ideas to create solutions and templates for others to use, then please jump in here and give it a shot!
So, what’s a Hackathon you ask! At Coda, the whole company gets together quarterly to brainstorm and build any ideas we can think up. We split up into teams, each team chooses an idea, then we spend two days…and nights…working to make it happen. At the end, we present to the group and everyone can try it out in test environments.
These are a lot of fun and quite a few ideas that you see in the product today were born at a hackathon!
In reading through community posts and questions, there are a few that tend to be recurring and it feels like an answer, or several answers, are just around the corner. Sometimes it just takes a little bit focus and collaboration, so here’s the first Coda Community Hackathon topic…
Charts in Email
Scattered throughout posts on the Community, as well as questions submitted to our support system, it’s easy to find the question “How do I get charts in my emails?”. We are constantly working on new features at Coda, but this one has not made it to the front of the line just yet. I wanted to bring it to the Community and see what creative solutions pop up in the meantime.
It seems like there might be several possibilities, so choose your strategy and give it a shot!
It must be a “no code” solution in the sense that the end user does not need to understand code to use the doc and send an email.
It can use any officially supported Coda feature or formula. (no hidden test stuff where you’ve been warned it could break in the future.)
Any outside services are fair game, but having an open-source or free option is preferred everyone can use and test it.
Solo entries and Team entries are accepted!
How voting works:
Entries will be voted on by Coda employees at our Friday all company meeting. We’ll share your demos with all employees and they will cast their votes.
