You can do a lot with Coda! But let’s start with the basics...
Checkout these Coda templates in the page navigation to the left after you’re done exploring this page.
First, try to start typing on the page.
Start something simple, like your name: You’re already making progress checking items off your list!
Now, try some of these fun (and easy to create) interactions.
1. Switch the toggle to the done position , then try it in the table below:
✅ Tasks Done:
📌 Tasks Remaining:
2. Now, drag the blue dot until the slider value displays 100:
3. Click one reaction that best reflects what you think of Coda so far:
Select one emoji response.
←Click to expand or hide blocks of text.
Collapsible headers keep things tidy and help doc-viewers stay focused. To make any header collapsible, just click on the kebab menu (three dots) to the left of a header.
Meet the slash command, Coda’s (not so secret) superpower.
Coda’s building blocks are things like tables that talk to each other and buttons that take action. You’ve already interacted with several building blocks. Well done!
Type / anywhere in your doc to call up a menu of Coda’s building blocks.
You can also speed up your doc-making process by typing /templates to browse through a list of ready-made tools and outlines.
If you know of a specific template you’d like to use—like a task tracker or outline for meeting notes—you can use the slash command with its name (like /voting table ) to insert it.
