Do you have a ton of sticky notes, notebooks or using various apps to keep track of things? Do you ever have trouble remembering where you put that piece of information you wanted to save?
There are lots of apps out there that let you save your notes. But I find using those apps can be somewhat limiting. I decided to ditch all those other apps and only use Coda for managing my home, work, family, etc.
This doc is just one piece of my overall Home/Life Management doc that I use daily.
Rather than overwhelm you with all that information, I figured I’d just pull out pieces and show you what you can do in Coda.
How to use
Be sure to make a copy of this doc first, so that you can make it your own!
While in my browser I can always just open my home page, easily click the link for INPUT at the top and then BOOM, here’s my Note form, (Start.Me page also has other forms going to other Coda doc pages). Click the submit button on that form and BOOM. Note gets input into my Coda doc.
And of course Coda has an extension available for Chromium based browsers. You’ll find that here:
Once you add the extension to your browser, then you can just click the icon in your browser, you’ll see something similar to this:
Then you just add a title for this note, choose the Document name, Table, and column for the URL and select the column you want the title to go into.
That’s it! Three different ways to input a new Note into your Coda Notes doc!
One thing I love about Coda is that little search bar on the top left. Type in something like Kill Math and it will go and find that doc and show you. You can be more general and just type Math and it will show you any info in the doc that contains Math (not the actual calculations, though wouldn’t that be cool!)
and edit these categories to be what are most useful to you, or use the categories I started. I made a color coding system to make it easier on myself. Use the conditional formatting on that table to make changes to those colors.
Go to the Coda Community, search for Susan M Davis, find anything I’ve commented on, click my profile photo and you should be able to send me a message. Or just go to the Coda Community messages and start a new message to Susan M Davis.
