Most of the meetings I have are over the phone or on chat, the former of which means typing a lot of notes while people are talking. It’s very small, but the biggest problem I’ve faced with creating a meeting log is that by nature you need to type into a table cell and while the markdown basics work, they’re clunky in the cell editing format.
For example, create a bullet point by typing:
- This is a bullet
Naturally, you want to then hit enter, but you have to hit shift+enter or the cell’s contents are saved. Once you hit shift+enter, you pop down to an indented row, have to backspace twice, type another “-” and start that row.
Just an example, and this is hardly a dealbreaker, but for simplicity’s sake I find myself typing in Keep, then transposing the notes over both to the CRM and to coda, which was one extra step I didn’t need.
Again, it’s a very small hitch, you can easily work around it, but having to work around it means that I have to force myself to use coda or I have to switch between apps, which makes coda an extra step I generally won’t take.
If you cleaned up the markdown / content creation UI inside of a cell, even if just in “row-as-a-page” view, it would eliminate this issue for me.
