We’re extremely excited to introduce Coda 2.0, a simpler, cleaner, and faster doc for teams.
Help us spread the word…
Simpler, Cleaner, Faster
We simplified the most common interactions into easy filters and conditional formats, with no formulas required.
Even better, we turned our favorite building block compositions into drag-and-drop templates , and made them available right inside your doc. Now a teammate can add a topic voting table faster than you can say “show of hands.”
The visual refresh technically started back in July when we released a fresh new canvasーwith fewer shadows and more space to think and plan. And it continues today with centering for readability and section headers to frame information more clearly.
Coda overall is also faster and more responsive, thanks to a ton of performance improvements . You’ll notice scrolling, calculations, and section-switching are all speedier.
Now, on to the newer, bigger things…
Workspace and folders ー Learn more
We saw a lot of makers and teams quickly outgrow their doc lists. With dozens of docs, shared among different teams, it became hard to organize all their Coda docs in a simple list. Today we’re launching workspaces and folders so you can now create the right space for all your team’s docs.
You can think of folders like shared doc lists. So when someone joins the team, rather than add them to every doc one by one, just add them to the team folder and they’ll get access to all of that folder’s docs automatically. You’ll also see a “My Docs” folder, which is your private working area. When you’re ready to deploy a doc to your team, simply drop it into the team folder.
Doc Locking ー Learn more
Coda 2.0 also includes Locking at the doc and section level, so teams can ensure important information stays put - no longer can everyone edit everything, you can specify which parts of a doc are editable by everyone.
Cross-doc ー Learn more
We built Packs to integrate Coda with the other apps your team uses. Interestingly, the number one Packs request wasn’t for another service, it was for another Coda doc. Cross-doc lets you pull data from one doc into another, so you can retain that ever-elusive single source of truth.
Cross-doc is no simple thing, and consider this a first iteration. We expect this building block in particular will likely reshape how you organize information in Coda. Instead of one megadoc with views for every team, you could now have one Coda doc for the master data set, feeding into separate team docs.
Multiple Browser Support
We heard you - Chrome-only support was so Coda 1.0. We now have cross-browser support, and work on most major browsers including Safari, Edge and Firefox (in Beta).
Pricing - We call it Maker Billing
We’re also introducing three paid plans of Coda today, along with a very generous free tier - so you can get started, and even build a doc as powerful as an app, for free - whether it’s a to-do list, a meeting doc, or a wiki. As your docs evolve into bona-fide team tools, you’ll want to level up to a Pro, Team, or Enterprise plan.
We’ve taken an unconventional approach to pricing, which is fairer and less expensive than traditional models. Most of our competitors charge for everyone using a doc, even those who only touch it lightly. We only charge you for the people who make the docs. We call it Maker Billing. Learn more here.
