Like many new to Coda, we’re wondering about structure setup. A first question would be, is it really not possible to have two pages, or subpages, or even tables for that matter, to have the same title?
Here’s a basic example of what we want to set up:
Overall All Customer Performance Customer 1 Performance Customer 2 Performance Customer 3 Performance .... Customer 90 Performance
In this example we’re tracking some customer metrics, as well as rolling up their metrics to view maybe a chart of overall performance. Note that we have a decent number we’d like to track, 90 in this example.
I’d love your thoughts on this.
Option #1: Coda’s general recommendation, based on videos and help docs I’ve read, would be to have one single “Doc” contain everything. Within that doc, each customer would be a “Page”, and Performance would be a “Subpage”. A problem/annoyance with this seems to be we can’t have two subpages named “Performance”? So we’ll need to name them “Performance 1”…“Performance 2”…etc Even worse, two tables can’t be named the same, so the tables in each of these will also have to be named…“Table 1”…“Table 2”…etc
Option #2: One doc per customer, and Overall All Customer Performance would also be a doc. A main problem here seems to be that docs can’t be sorted in a custom order; docs are listed by last modified? Seems like an odd, basic missing feature. Additionally, rolling up the data from each customer to get an overall view seems difficult, only recently made possible by cross-doc
Any thoughts on how you’d structure something like this would be greatly appreciated!
