iOS Shortcuts & Coda


Create a table that you want to add data to and add a form view.
Publish the form and grab the link
Extract the form ID from the link (the bolded part here
Enter your form link below to automatically extract the form ID: ​
Please enter a valid form link
Save this form ID and copy this iCloud Shortcut:
Change the FORMDOCID to your doc ID in the shortcut
In the “row” dictionary you can add items where the first value (like url) is the name of the column (make sure to not have any spaces in your column names) and the value is whatever you want to submit.
You can fill in the values with different inputs from shortcuts, like what you say to Siri, what you enter in a Note, or what you have in your Clipboard, and more!
For an example of what you can do with this, see my , which uses Coda as a database for photos from my life that are uploaded via this shortcut when I take photos on my phone.
This is what the shortcut used to update that looks like:
It receives input from the share sheet (or if there’s no input, will ask you to select a photo from Photos), uploads it to imgur and gives that uploaded imgur link to Coda.
Want to print your doc?
This is not the way.
Try clicking the ⋯ next to your doc name or using a keyboard shortcut (
) instead.
