I am loving the ability to upload files to Coda - it has opened up a lot of new use cases, and removed the awkwardness of previous solutions that involved linking to files stored in other services.
However, I am already encountering quite a few scenarios where I have a large-ish table with a file attachment for each row, and I find myself needing to mass-download either all the files, or the files from a particular filtered selection of rows. There doesn’t seem to be any way to do this at the moment, aside from manually clicking each file attachment cell for each row (and that takes three clicks: one to open the preview screen, another to hit the download button, and another to close the preview screen).
It would be very useful if there was a
Download() function that would accept a list of files stored in Coda, and download them as a ZIP. For example,
Download( [TableName].filter( LastModified > now()-days(2) ).FileAttachment ) would give me all the files from the ‘FileAttachment’ column for rows where the date/time in the ‘LastModified’ column is no older than 2 days prior to the current time.
Anyone else think they would need this?
