Team knowledge base template to replace Guru + AI

Replace Guru to manage your team's knowledge base with this Coda template + AI

🔎 Stop paying for Guru. Switch to Coda to do more, for less.

Coda is a better option than Guru for team knowledge sharing and knowledge base use cases because Coda offers more flexibility in terms of customization and integration with other tools. Coda allows users to create dynamic documents that can be easily organized and edited to fit their team's specific needs. Additionally, Coda has a wide range of built-in templates and integrations with popular tools like Slack, Trello, and Google Drive. This makes it easier for teams to seamlessly incorporate their knowledge management into their existing workflow. Compared to Guru, Coda offers a more comprehensive solution for teams looking to streamline their knowledge sharing and collaboration processes.

Customized filters and views of cards.

Filter your cards by any column or property. The resulting views can be “pivoted” and grouped however you like.

Get more done with Coda’s building blocks.

For additional features like task project management, utilize Coda’s building blocks to do these other tasks alongside your cards with no extra costs.

AI automatically tags and summarizes cards.

Coda AI can do more than just write a company policy for you in a card. Automatically classify cards based on tags you define.

Video tutorial

Everything Guru can do. And more.

Single-use, specialized tools like Guru create data silos and drain your budget. Coda goes beyond single-use applications, allowing teams to create custom, interconnected workflows and automate tasks without needing to switch between multiple tools.

Live polling, Q&A

Holding an all-hands and want to quickly get everyone to upvote their favorite questions or topics? This live-polling template is for you.

Visualize Jira issues in a table

If your development team is using Jira to track issues and bugs, use the Jira integration to view your Jira data in a structured table + integrate with your OKRs.

Use AI to summarize meetings notes

Take meeting notes in Coda and use the Coda AI assistant to help summarize and create action items from your notes.

When to use Coda instead of Guru.

Use Coda anywhere you would use Guru. And then some. In addition to these scenarios, you can use Coda for meeting notes, to track action items, and send follow ups.

Remote, hybrid teams

Remote teams may want to view their cards differently than how Guru displays them. Create custom views of your cards and collections.

All-hands, presentations

Create visualizations and custom reports of your cards. No more summarizing your Guru data and putting it into a slide deck.


Unite your silos of data

With Coda’s integrations (Packs), you can view your Jira, GitHub, Figma, and other 3rd party data directly in Coda in a structured table.

When to use Guru instead of Coda.

Use Guru when you want to have a specific piece of software dedicated to team knowledge bases and team wikis and nothing else.

Detailed card analytics

Guru comes with detailed analytics about how many times cards are viewed and copied. These analytics are not native to Coda but can be replicated.


Organizational structure

Collections and folders are the default ways to organize your cards in Guru. If you don’t want to extend beyond this structure, Guru is the right choice for your team.

Look and feel

Since Guru is specifically built for team knowledge bases, the look and feel can’t really be customized to suit your team. Some teams prefer this rigid type of interface.
