Sometimes the smallest changes make the biggest difference in your workflow.
We’ve been hearing from many of you how much you appreciate the rate at which we respond to feature requests, so we thought we would share some of the features and improvements we have made over the last month that didn’t make it into our announcements.
Here’s what we launched:
Capture & validate emails in forms or tables with the email column type.
We have rich person references, which allow you to reference information about everyone in your doc, but we’ve observed that people add email data into text columns in tables and forms. Now, you can add an email column type to more intuitively capture and email your friends, colleagues, or customers. Click on the default text column in your form or table and type Email in the column type search bar or under the “People” options in the column menu.
From there, you can click the email icon and select Email options to choose whether to show the icon, icon + email, or email only. When data in an email column is not correctly formatted as an email, an invalidation error will be shown so you can quickly find, address, and diagnose any email address issues.
Customize URLs with the link column type.
Remove long, messy URLs by adding the Link column type from the column type search bar. Once you add your Link column, you can select to show the link as an icon, the title of the webpage, URL, card, or embed.
Switch between two options with a toggle.
If you want the option to create an on/off decision in your docs, tables, or forms you can replace a checkbox with a toggle to switch between different states.
Save a time with a command menu for automation rules.
You no longer need to double-click into a rule to make changes to an automation. Click the vertical “…” next to each to rule to open the command menu and perform quick actions, such as duplicate and delete.
Save space in your tables with better text wrapping.
We’ve always supported the option to wrap and unwrap long text columns to make your rows shorter; however, this doesn’t save any space when you use paragraph styles like lists or headings. Now, unwrapped cells are always one line no matter what content you put in them.
Copy the values from a formula column.
Sometimes you just need to copy all those values you created for a new table, without duplicating the formula. Now, you can copy a formula column and keep the cell values without duplicating the formula.
The URL() formula has a new name.
We renamed the URL() formula to Objectlink() to be more descriptive of the behavior. Now, you can use ObjectLink() to get the URL for an object in your Coda tables.
Whether the changes are big or small, we understand how important it is to respond to feedback requests from our dedicated users. The details really matter, and we’re focused on the ones that bring teams together.
