In Coda, you can build systems as comprehensive as , or as simple as a table with tasks and their respective statuses.
Somewhere in-between those options: you can type /tasks to browse and add a number of drag-and-drop templates for tasks directly within Coda. The example below is the basic “Tasks” template with some tweaks to conditional formatting, and then displayed as cards.
💡 Tip: You can add interactive buttons to your cards in Coda. Considering adding a button column to your source table using the or that lets your team click it to message a task owner directly to ask for updates.

As a calendar

Calendars are great way to see how tasks and their due dates are spread out. The tasks in this example take place in September & October 2020, so be sure adjust the calendar month if you’re not seeing any data.

Gantt charts are another way to see how project tasks flow into each other. You'll need to add some columns (start date & end date) to the basic tasks table for a Gantt view.
