Google drive and Coda could be a great hand-in-hand tool for everyone who relates tasks to folders and/or files in the cloud. (Is there are task which isn’t?!)
A very highly desired functionality explained in scenario would look like this:
- Create a new task/row in Coda table;
- Then a folder in google drive with the task’s name is automatically created in pre-defined folder;
- Then when assigning the task to a person/user, this person gets automatic email with a link to the newly created folder. (no manual copy-paste - just an email template which has a placeholder for this link);
- The very cool part would be that when assigning the task to the user, Coda automatically updates the access rights of the folder so that the person/user is granted an Edit access to this folder.
If we can achieve that… this would lay the ground for us to create our own platform in Coda and ditch our current inefficient TMS
