The special Coda features you won't see in a traditional product demo

Or, how you can really get the most out of Coda

It’s been an exciting few weeks for as at Coda, and not just because of the
we’ve launched. In the past weeks, we’ve been honored to be recognized by the Coda maker community with reviews that have led to some pretty awesome recognition. Some recent highlights:

As Coda’s first Product Marketing Manager, I read all of our reviews vociferously as an incredible goldmine of user feedback. In fact, you don’t have to go back too far on any of the above sites to find constructive feedback that we’ve already converted to product improvements. (And if you visit any of the sites to check me on this, leave a review and I’ll read that too!)

In addition to comments on our product, I’m always proud and overjoyed to see some of the other “Coda features” that contribute to overwhelmingly positive experiences for our users. In the spirit of not letting these best kept secrets stay hidden, I’ve compiled a rundown to help everyone get the most out of Coda.


The Coda support team

That little question mark in the bottom right of your docs is a gateway to a world of knowledge and kindness, courtesy of our incredible customer champions.

If you’ve ever interacted with our dedicated team, it’s likely no surprise that we were recognized with the “Best Relationship” achievement on G2.
isn’t just about solving your problem, but making sure any interaction we have is a chance to share new Coda skills and tips so you can click away with more than you might’ve expected. Of course, we’re also ready to move quickly when you contact us about potential bugs at
, and share your product feedback and feature requests with our broader team to keep making Coda better for every maker.

Something that blew me away when joining Coda from a larger company was just how hands-on the entire Coda team is in making sure our product helps makers succeed. It’s not uncommon for anyone from our Social Media Manager, to our CTO & co-founder, to a Solutions Architect, or even a friendly PMM to help troubleshoot customer issues. We all learn by making, and very often that means understanding where the fixes need to be made from our users’ point-of-view.


The ingenious Coda Community

123Honesty: When I dove headfirst into Coda my first week, I was intimidated by all of the incredible docs my teammates had already built to run our company and our team. Coda’s come a long way since then—and so have I. 🥳

But in those early days, I didn’t want to bug my colleagues too much with my “how do you do X?” questions, and I needed some inspiration to think about how to make the perfect button (hint: it’s usually a button that pushes other buttons). One trip to
was all I needed.

Not only can you browse through a wealth of inventive solutions built by our power makers, but you can also collaborate with makers from around the globe and be the first to know about new Coda feature launches. Fair warning: some of the innovative formulas you see from our Community members will blow your mind. 🤯


Coda on social media

Whether you’re a #NoCode or #LowCode fanatic, #BuildingInPublic, or just love an occasional inside joke or meme, we’ve also got a great community interacting with Coda on social media. If you
for timely communication, seek the professional solace of the
environment, or want a playlist of
, we’ve got you covered.

Choose the content and channels you prefer, and give us a follow!


Learning resources

On a related note, we offer a host of on-demand and live learning opportunities to help you and your teams get the most out of Coda. Expert Coda facilitator Maria can teach you everything from how to use key text features, optimize complex tables, or even unpack some of the more advanced Coda formulas. I may be biased since she’s my colleague (and we have been known to improvise musicals about our company on the spot), but there’s no better Coda Yoda than Maria.

And you don’t have to take my word for it!
So, where you can you find this Coda Jedi master?

You can follow Maria’s curated curriculum in the Coda learn doc, which includes sequenced videos and exercises to help you get acquainted with the basic building blocks of Coda at your own pace. Make a copy of the doc to try out what you learn as you go.

Join Maria on ~weekly basis as she covers topics ranging from core use cases for Coda, interviews with makers behind the building blocks, or for fan-favorite “Formula Fitness” sessions. Whether you join live at
or watch the replay, there’s nothing like a classroom session with one of the greats.

Check out Coda’s YouTube channel where you can see instruction videos, as well as interviews with makers from other companies to learn how they use Coda.

And, stay tuned for an announcement from Maria on June 15th about a brand new, next-level learning opportunity! Want to be the first to know? Be sure to join the

The Docket

While we know the bulk of your time with Coda is likely spent in your own beautiful docs, we hope you also take advantage of these other Coda features we’ve invested in to help you make the most of your Coda experience. And, as always, we can’t wait to see what you Coda. 🚀
