We’ve said it before, and we’ll keep on saying it: Coda runs on Coda.
We use our own product for everything—from running effective and inclusive meetings, to documenting the outcomes of those meetings, to evaluating designs, and hosting the occasional social hour trivia. But if we’re being honest, we’ve relied on Zoom to make all of that possible over the past year. In a socially distant and fully-remote year of work, we’ve used Zoom for so much more than our usual business needs: bringing Codans together for company kickoffs, tag-ups, weekly demos, 1:1s, social hangs, birthday celebrations, and so much more.
That’s why we’re so excited for today’s Zoom Apps launch.
Zoom Apps are seamless integrations of apps you use every day into your virtual meetings. While we already have our own that brings Zoom functionality into your Coda docs, the Coda app for Zoom brings Coda directly into the Zoom experience.
Previously, when using a Coda doc to guide a meeting, we’ve opened the doc (or created a new one), adjusted the sharing settings, and shared the doc in Zoom chat. The Coda app for Zoom allows you to use a Coda doc directly in the Zoom meeting, and automatically adjusts the sharing settings so meeting participants can engage with the doc as well.
In addition to saving you some presentation hassle, we’ve also made it easy to find Coda’s most useful templates for running great meetings. Now, right in your Zoom meeting, you can:
Docs you create natively in Zoom will automatically be added to your Coda workspace, so you can quickly email out decisions or revisit hot topics after your video meeting has ended.
