Hi there,

This doc serves as an addition to the webinar, and covers the following:
The act of successfully switching from a spreadsheet to a database comprises the following five steps, which we will tackle together:
Understand the differences between spreadsheets and databases
Move your data out of your existing spreadsheet
This requires transforming your current data set-up, to ensure that it’s fulfills a database’s requirements
Move your data into your database
Import your data into Coda, define the relationship between your data points and set up your views
Use it during your daily work
Repeat for new processes

I’ll cut you a deal - I’ll care of the first three steps and you’ll tackle the remaining two. You’ll be more than capable to do so once we’re done.
Deal? Well then,
