Hellos I think the beauty of coda will be to bring together all the other bits and pieces of info we have all over the nets and allow us to display it in a single place in a word doc type format. Coda canvas is like a live, internet connected piece of paper! Oh! Can you start on that next? k, thanks, ta!
Todoist (better task management structure for getting on with it)
Google Drive (direct embed or list files)
Embed google calendar instead of native (better live integration)
Hey Kimberly, I’m part of the team working on new Packs
Thanks for your suggestions. Would love to know more detail about how you want to use these. Feel free to DM me or share more here in the community. Especially any examples of your current process and where you’d love to be using Coda for it instead.
Ok so, I’ve found myself using coda for a few different things but it’s mainly for business that I think it shines for me. I’ve been really struggling with getting a coherent overall view of my business. I’ve tried many tools, like task management and project management software, reporting software. And I’ve tried almost all of them
I’m looking to use coda to give me the high level view that I need for planning business objectives by pulling all my data into one place that will allow me to see the big picture, decide what I want to do with my big picture and then, well, get on with doing it! Sounds simples, ay?
So to set this up I’ve created a Live business plan that follows the standard format but allows me to:
Pull data from other sources to be included visually (ie, graphs etc)
Give me an overview of each sections progress
Allow me to plan my projects and create and schedule tasks.
Essentially, I see:
Finance - pulling data from Xero
Marketing - pulling data from a social management/ reporting tool or coda replicating it (which I think I can do relatively easily)
Sales - pulling data from shopify, stripe, paypal, ebay, amazon, facebook etc.
Brief overview/ Project management - This will be where I plan projects and create associated tasks. While coda can handle task management, it’s just not as effective as Todoist in many ways.
These are the obvious sections. I’m still working on what I need to include elsewhere.
Can I give you access to a doc so you can see what I’m yammering about?
Oh and I’ve starting using it to auto-generate my shopping list cause I am defo that short on time!
Thank you for the link but, damn, is it a complex process! I’d rather wait for a proper GSheet pack to be developed. Having to repeat this for every table is too much for me right now.
Also, I think it wouldn’t work for my Coda apps because I need to export CSVs of different views of the same parent table (often 2 or 3 views per table).
So really a GSheet pack would probably not work as well as copy pasting the data to a sheet and exporting a CSV.
