With more work happening in virtual spaces, we made some small changes to how you create and update column types to remove a few clicks and make things a bit faster for you.
Quickly Pick & Switch Column Types
Before, when you wanted to change column types (for example: from text to date), you had to click to open the column options and then make you change within the menu that popped-up. Now, you’re able to quickly search and switch column types directly from the column formatting drop-down menu .
You may also notice we’ve made it a bit quicker to set your column type when adding columns to a table as well. Now, when you add a column by clicking ‘+’ at the right of a table or right-clicking on an existing column, you can pick the type of new column right away.
More Cell Formatting Options
When right-clicking on a cell, we’ve historically shown few options for editing or formatting that cell. Based on your feedback, we’re adding Filtering , Grouping and Formatting to this menu.
We hope these changes make working with tables in Coda a bit more intuitive and fast for you and your teammates.
