If you were to give Coda a motto, what would it be? Alternatively, if you were to describe Coda in 1 sentence, what would you say?
I ask because it’d be interesting to see different mottos people might think Coda represents because Coda is so versatile it could mean many different things to different people. As such, ideas from both employees and regular users are welcome.
I’m aware that Coda has what appears to be an unofficial motto (or at least very common phrase), “A doc as powerful as an app.” Although, no company page explicitly states “Our motto is …” and I get this is similar to Google as they also have an unofficial motto, “Don’t be evil.” Used to have… but I digress.
Of course, Shishir Mehrotra and other founders of Coda are probably most qualified to answer this question. Lots of respect for the Coda team too.
This is my 1st post of hopefully many more. As the phrase goes, “Every expert started as a beginner.”
Also, I love Coda more than my cat.
(Don’t worry, I still love her very very much too)
Hi Ben! I really like your idea! That is exactly what Coda feels like to me. As though I am not restricted by the app; the app is restricted by my own creativity. I have gone through so many previous “business management” and “productivity platforms” but none are like Coda. Your motto really catches the difference!
Not usable as a motto, but the line that always stuck out to me from an online review was “Google docs on steroids”.
I like it especially because there are a lot of people stuck in excel/word/sheets land that could really benefit from moving to things like Coda, and there are a lot of users using more bespoke tools like Jira/Confluence that could benefit from simpler, adapted solutions.
