Is there a built-in or an easy way to insert a table of all of a document’s tables? Basically, I’d want to put information from the Doc Map into the document itself. I’d want this table of tables to update automatically when I add a new table to my doc.
Hi @DSB ,
Unfortunately not yet.
I guess that a Pack leveraging on the Coda API would do the job, but it definitely goes beyond the “built-in and easy”.
Check out the Audit Pack from @Scott_Collier-Weir. That seems to answer your question. You would need to trigger the sync after adding new tables, not sure whether that could be automated. I use it to het a list of all fields/columns per table and it works well.
To paraphrase some politician: Coda has a pack for that…
Roger—thanks! And thanks also, @Piet_Strydom !
It can definitely be automated! Just ensure the sync settings on your table are set to “hourly” and it will always keep up to date data on your docs tables, columns, pages, formulas, and more! It will even keep track of each tables row count to help you keep tabs on docs that get out of hand
Please let me know if any of you have questions or suggestions for the pack! Updating it constantly with new features
Ps - Im also seeking a new name for the pack, it was originally designed to audit slow docs or keep robust documentation on complex docs. But since it was made people are using it for so much more. So if you have an idea for a new name Im all ears!
