As you guys know, I am finding the Fibery UX easier to navigate so far than Coda, and in fact Notion. I am getting a lot of success with the ease of creating relations. A good example of what causes me roadblocks in Coda is this feature:
@GJ_Roelofs we were both involved here. So when I use this, I was expecting simply for this to be a full bi-directional reference, that Ben is advertising can be done in “only two clicks.” Thing is, this solution is only one-directional, so not really “just two clicks” if you want the full reciprocal capabilities. With Fibery, as well as Notion in this case but with a bit more work, you set up the relation and it’s instantly visible in the receiving table. What’s more, Fibery has a notion of one-to-many vs. many-to-many. This is a little touch that allows much quicker creation of these relationships, something that requires more though to set up in Coda, and in a UI/UX arrangement that I can easily grasp. I cannot say the same about most of what I try to create in Coda.
I am really hoping we can get more of this user-friendly feature build in Coda. I don’t think it would in the least harm the underlying power, but could really make it more attainable for those “lesser” Makers such as myself. Sadly, I am getting ready to give up my efforts to build my “all-in-one” solution, for the time being, in Coda. I hope to be back though, as I’ve given up and returned several times in the last year!
