Why Coda?

Efficient teams

Coda makes project accountability easy
Regardless of your team’s size, location, or stage, you likely have recurring meetings set aside for project updates, next steps, due dates, etc.
However, as your team and business grow, so does the challenge of continuing to track project progress and ship product an efficient rate.
Below are a few of the way the world’s most efficient products teams use Coda Templates to take static docs and Coda-fy them into out-of-the-box super tools that get work done.

One thing that sets Coda apart from the crowd, is the way tables, docs, & charts can interact and effortlessly update in real-time.
For example, you’ll notice as you move the blue bars on the ‘Roadmap timeline’ below, the data on the ‘Our product roadmap’ table automatically updates, without having to manually manipulate formulas or the charts/tables themselves. Talk about a time-saver. 👏

Project Accountability Use Case
As you’ll probably remember, the bottom of the subpage includes a full rundown of how Figma’s VP of Product, Yuhki, runs their entire Product Roadmap out of Coda.
Yuhki specifically calls out how they found a natural way to keep the team accountable / efficient, without having to micromanage. Sounds ideal, right?
For us, the key was to automatically show the previous week's update for each project. Directly comparing the past and present updates highlights if meaningful progress is (or isn't) being made on the projects. And it makes it natural for people to follow up on promises they made in previous updates.
