I just checked out the great new “Coda Essentials” series yesterday on YouTube. @maria Great work as always in the channel! As a somewhat novice Coda user, I’m always able to learn something new from content you guys deliver in these clips, many thanks for putting these together and please keep it up!
I wanted to ask if you would consider some basic Team-type stuff in your upcoming plans. I’d really be interested in some content that would show some ways to build basic “team” stuff you might find in apps that are used by teams, that Coda is replacing in many cases, like Jira, Trello, Wrike, Asana, Monday, Clubhouse, etc. Unlike Coda, these apps have some “forced” structure, which often includes:
- Team Dashboards
- Some basic reports like Resource Management, Tasks completed by assignee, etc.
- Central Activity log for what has been going on within the team
- Suggestions for setting up hierarchies factoring in both 1) in-table lookups, and 2) table-to-table lookups, and the differences. I think basic hierarchy is a fundamental feature of a lot of other apps - things like Task/Subtask, Epic/Story, Objective/Key Result. In my experience in Coda there are differences that are important which result depending on what combination of in-table, and table-to-table structures you set up, for example in Grouping. There is a lot of discussion around hierarchy handling in the community, so I think this last one would be particularly useful.
I’d be particularly interested in how to emulate a more sophisticated Team Dashboard. I have seen some docs that will filter tables for things like tasks or other individual entities, but I’m curious about a more robust view.
In this post there is some discussion of a dashboard with things like Meeting Notes, Project Milestones, Tasks in Motion, etc.
I’d be interested in some solution like that, which would pull in data from multiple parts of a doc, or even cross-doc if you want to add stuff like Customer Feedback status, CRM pipeline health, etc.
Oh and PS Maria, I watched your Bug Tracking video with great interest, but had trouble with the Audio. Perhaps it was my internet connection, but during the entire clip the audio seemed jumbled!
