Tips for making the most of Coda

Integrations & API

If you’re tired of waiting for Notion to release their API so you can connect your pages to other apps, then you definitely owe it to yourself to try importing your content into a Coda doc! With Coda, you can connect to pre-configured packs to quickly spin-up and manage integrations, or you can go the custom route via their API.
Packs
Coda’s Packs are quick ways to give your docs super powers by connecting them to common apps. You can do everything from integrate your Jira Issues and Google Calendar into a project tracker table, and then add a button to send a notification to your team’s Slack channel every time an issue is closed. Or you can quickly email meeting notes. Or set-up a slate of interviews over Zoom. Or even get updates on the stock market!
I won’t go into all the details in this doc, but here are a few cool samples of Packs in action:

Note that their API means to make a seemingly endless set of connections to the other tools you use to work.
