If our team was ~hypothetically~ going to spend the next few weeks working on small improvements to make your day-to-day lives in Coda better, what are a few things that would make the top of your list?
Ah, and decimal notation.
A calendar view able to show more than 2 or 3 events/meetings/entries:
- the height of the week where multiples entries exist is adapted to fit them all, or
- the entries are shown with a smaller font and/or narrower “ribbon”.
Looking forward to what the team will bring!
Line Chart View with a sum over time option
When I want to see a growth over time sale or expense, I have to create a new table or add a column with a formula in the current table, like this:
Sum( Filter(thisTable, Category=thisRow.Category AND CurrentValue.Date<=thisRow.Date AND RowId(CurrentValue) <= RowId(thisRow) ).Amount )
These approaches feels too “workaround” for me.
Is it too complicated to just add something like this?
Improve editing/searching, handling of text documents.
Create a Coda for Dummies book
-proper full width. half of my screen empty.
-more icons in scale options.
under page locking, ability to disable row deleting (either on it own, or coupled with the disable row add button).
The ability to collapse any object under any collapsible text regardless of the text hierarchy (for example H1 can collapse under H3. Or a photo, line, code block, and so on…)
Custom format currency support.
(or if not custom, add Peso currency support. multiple countries uses pesos as currency. Philippines, Mexico, etc.)
In line with the feedback of @Xyzor_Max
Not having any clue how hard it is to remove this crumble path logic or make it optional (which would be my preference). You see this if you open a row as full screen modus. Most of the times I don’t want users to click. Clicking brings the user back to the table and permits for deleting rows (which I try to avoid) using full screen.
- Proper full width
- ability to select default width (wide, narrow, or auto) for all new pages
- separate locking switch for deleting rows
- fixing text input control to adapt to column width (right now it overflows if the column is too small) or even better, being able to resize its width (e.g. I don’t need a large input field for 2-digit numbers)
that’s top of my mind for small improvements
What @Xyzor_Max and @Christiaan_Huizer already said I would just add one more small addition, when you lock the document also disable show hidden pages toggle, so user cant unhide pages you hidden for a reason
drag select rows. shift selection is time consuming and difficult.
Numeric keyboard in the app when the column is a number. Currently is the normal keyboard.
Option to disable auto complete when column type is number.
It’s something completely unnecessary and it’s has caused me a few big problems.
Option to lock column type.
Sometimes even after setting up all columns of a table, Coda change columns types for no reason.
The ability to have the same control over the IOS/Android user experience as with the web app view. I am facing the risk of having to leave Coda because I can’t make my doc look the same on an iPad as it does on my Mac. This has become a showstopper as user insist on wanting to use their iPhones - damn them
Simple number formatting that works the same in formulas, canvas, etc. for currencies, decimals, percent, etc. If you still have free time, ability to reduce padding around text. thanks!
