Ordering of the folders, document, sections and premissions

As I see it a document is the equivalent to workspace with multiple subtopics. I would be happy to have more deeply folder nesting to better organize things.

Alternatively, allowing folder on the main screen and ordering documents inside it will also do the job.

In any way it would had been great to have premissions per section or folder. A fast solution, but inferior solution in my opinion, is to be able to export (and import back) a section or folder to a document while keeping the sync (maybe, very smoothly embedded?) and allow different share premission to the exported doc.

Another, more complex and less immediate solution, is to add tags to a document and it is possible to add (accumulate) premission to users per tag. (This will solve another issue of how to share a specific sections with specific consultants) - It will require some managment UI to know who can see what but, in my opinion, it is important step to maturing the product and ability to work with bigger teams who produce large quantities of data.

Thanks and continue do the great job you do


I agree and want to follow this. I have so many docs now and beginning to need to sort them in categories. Allowing folder on the main screen and ordering documents inside it would be just fine for me. Thanks Coda team for doing an awesome job.

Any updates on this feature request and when this will be implimented!? This is exactly what is required for running a business that has a lot of processes and information. This is 100% a must have feature and I hope this happens soon. Coda is incredible so far in my experience.

I would like to add support for increased hierarchy on the “left pane” of Coda.

In particular, I’d like to be able to:

  • add at least one more level of nested hierarchy to sections
  • in the other direction, the ability to group Folders. So basically Folders for Folders

Some examples are:

  • I have some parts of my Product that are large and I represent in individual folders. It would be great to group these Folders as “Product” to distinguish from other Folders I use for other parts of my Coda

  • I’d like to break out my Sections as “project hubs,” and the divide each into things like Gantt view, current tasks, etc. If I use a whole Folder for this, the left pane gets very long in a hurry!

I know this is commonly requested across the community, but I think it would be a great addition to have these capabilities in Coda. Hoping this feedback is useful for you guys as you work on implementation of the expanded hierarchy.
