I’m also from Notion, and I am exploring Coda as a replacement, due to how much more powerful it is. I hit the same issue as those on this thread. I would also like Coda to add something similar to Notion, but there is a workaround that requires a few more steps that in Notion, but not much. The idea is to have a button to create a new project page, which will be linked to a row in a Projects table.
Here’s an example of how to do this : Project pages
The process is the following:
- Create a project in the Projects table, and give it a name.
- Click on the “Create project page” button, which will create a new page for the project, and display it.
- In the newly created page, click on the dropdown at the top of the page and select the newly created project.
- Click on the “Add page link to project table” button.
Once you’ve done this, things are set up so that the button in the Projects table turns into “Open projects page”, which will open the projects page (rather than create a new page). In the project page, the button previously called “Add page link to project table” has turned into a “Open project row” button, which displays the project details when clicked.
I hope that this helps.
PS: This is the first time that I am sharing a link to a Coda doc, I hope it works correctly…
