We know that sometimes the little things can have a big impact on how you use Coda. Here are 8 of the latest updates we’ve shipped to fine tune your experience. Let us know what you think!
Here’s what we launched:
Cleaner, smoother visualizations for lists that allow multiple selections.
We made an improvement to the amount of data shown in select list, lookup, and people columns with the allow multiple selections option turned on. We heard your feedback that you wanted more control over whether to show long lists of data or truncate them. You have an option to show more or show less option in cells and item layouts to control how the information is displayed. As an additional perk, this helps your big docs with multi-select lists run more smoothly.
Toggles are so hot right now.
We heard you like the option to replace a checkbox with a toggle, so we made the choice more prominent in pages. Now, you can directly drag a toggle control from the page control panel, rather than having to create a checkbox and then change the option to a toggle.
Hang out in the row modal a little longer.
When you’re working in a row modal, the last thing you want to do is jump out of it to make changes to your table. We’ve added another table control to the row modal and detail view so you can duplicate a row without leaving the modal.
Put yourself first.
Before, you had to search for yourself in a people select column. Now, we show your name and avatar at the top so you can easily add yourself into your task trackers.
Don’t lose your group.
If you’ve ever forgotten what you were scrolling through because a group was too large, we’ve pinned the name at the top of the table just for you.
Table comments anchored to table views.
If you @ mention a teammate in a table view, the comment takes your teammate to the page where the comment was authored, instead of the original base table.
Problematic formulas won’t slow down your docs.
When a column formula is written that takes longer than 5 minutes to calculate, we will show you a warning message and prompt you to reload the doc to identify the problematic formula.
Table scrolling that caters to your data.
Project growth is directly correlated to table growth. We’ve elevated table scrolling to make finding your data that much easier. As you scroll, you’ll notice tables show more row data by default instead of placeholders. And for our lightning-speed scrollers, you’ll see placeholders as you scroll quickly through a table, instead of white space or gaps.
As we continue to release more product updates, you may notice small Easter eggs in your every day workflows. Enjoy!
