And on a tangent, the same applies to people continuing to ask for drawing (Miro), publishing and spreadsheet capabilities.
Having said that though, a more nuanced consideration is necessary.
Here are some of my ideas:
Publishing/pdf is usually geared towards paper, and Coda is the antithesis of paper documents. Yes, some people generate invoices and other doc’s. I don’t, so cannot say whether the existing PDF packs are sufficient.
Miro (or Visio) - replicating drawing capabilities would be as bad as the graphs you responded to above. I have not recently explored the Miro integration, but I can see benefits from some tighter integration. I have two use cases.
I have recently started a doc for our church on “gun violence as a system”. The system view drawing is in Miro, and each block has a corresponding topic in a table in Coda. Eg. Legislators is a block in Miro, and a topic in the table in Coda. And linked to the topic is a list of Atlanta counselors, and Georgia federal senators and representatives. Easier cross referencing between the two would be nice.
The other topic relates to SAP implementations. Often the business processes are drawn out in swimlane or other process flow diagrams in Visio. Some process steps relate to SAP tcodes which are further explained elsewhere, typically spreadsheets or word tables. My dream is to have this tightly integrated, also with the test scripts needed. Coda is ideal for this. There are other tools available for this, including from SAP, but they are difficult to implement, expensive and cumbersome.
Unfortunately SAP implementation consulting houses are not known for their innovative in house work processes.
And lastly, the old hoary chestnut - spreadsheets. My thoughts on this has greatly evolved since I was a Coda noob. Again, sheets have a wide array of uses. I believe any list processing should be done in Coda, and spreadsheets hardly considered.
Much of the financial related work that is currently done in spreadsheets, should rather be done in Coda. This applies especially to modelling. In great part because of the high error rate in spreadsheets that you posted about earlier. While not immune to no code problems, I think Coda is a more robust tool than spreadsheets.
In any case, this is just a ( tangential) ramble,
