"Serious" Project Management in Coda? (Work Breakdown Structures)

Vote up for me too. Consider integrating this idea with “outlining”. If we could outline, ala Word, or that great old PIM Ecco, we could use that tool to creat a WBS.

I’m trying to do this by combining several templates to start with in the discussion below. Please contribute to the discussion if you have any thoughts! or maybe creative ideas! For example, has anyone tried to do a deep flexible hierarchy in apps that do allow it, like Smartsheet or Wrike and then synced data to Coda via Zapier - in order to “terraform” the hierarchy/template in Coda and then modify with additional Coda features? Any issues with that?

I would also like a way you have more hierarchy. Outline would also be great.

How has this still not been addressed. There are limitations to smartsheets and MSP is a legacy program that does not integrate/automate project manager level actions. Coda could fix this. Without an good solution for sub tasks/hierarchy, coda is just another “shiny thing”

Unfortunately I have to agree. It’s the reason I’ve had to move on to other tools like Airtable.

Apologies for late reply - Folding is definitely on our list. While we are planning to make it easier - your can certainly create makeshift folding in coda.

Whoa, this is the first time I’ve ever seen this. How exactly did you do this? And how do you get the text to indent in the next column over?

Dear @Krunal_Sheth,

Amazing masterpiece that you created :1st_place_medal:, looking forward to understand the logic how you created this :brain:

This is where Coda becomes even more interesting :eyes:

I added a section that explains how everything is put together in that document.

Dear @Krunal_Sheth,

This is what I call a serious piece of architecture :building_construction:
First you need to have the vision and for sure, to be able to develop the structure it needs a serious skill set and experience. :eyes:

Thanks for the amazing inspiration you created :handshake:

That is most impressive!

If you are at all connected to the Coda Dev Team, let me also put in a good word for an officially supported “Folding Hierarchical List” Feature. It might seriously make me ditch all the other task list apps I am using and just use Coda.

Please, please, pretty please, make Hierarchical Lists an official out-of-the-box feature of Coda!

This is really amazing !!!

Just checking back on this. I know Coda has a lot going on right now but is this feature still somewhere on the drawing board?

Hi @Krunal_Sheth, thanks for this. Now, is there any way to hide columns in the table while making them visible in the form after clicking on +Subtask?

@Jeremy_Corman please tell me more - i think its already supported. or may be i missed the case?

That’s right. I knew you could change the display of the table but did not notice that you could customize the layout of the form when adding a new row. That’s great!

This is quite amazing… I am seriously going to reverse engineer this. It will be interesting when more of these feature-sets make it as part of the core product.
