How to Use this Doc

Sign up for Coda


If you are like me, then you have a dozen or more apps that you use to manage the little things in your life. Those apps do a great job at what they do, but eventually life seems to be all about checking all the apps or clearing the endless notifications on your devices. I got tired of managing all those apps and having all those apps not communicate with each other. So, I set out to build my own version of “one app to rule them all”.
This document is just a small snippet of that overall Home Management app I created. In my master app, I have all the little pieces linked together automatically creating tasks for me to do when for example my auto insurance is expiring. No more checking apps then creating to do tasks for the things the apps tell me need to be done. If you want more information on that app, please contact me. I will be sharing the individual pieces in the Coda Gallery and then you can put them all together to create your own app, or if you like you can hire me to build your own custom version of my Home Management app. Find out more about me See my other docs in the Coda Gallery

Where to start


Below those flags you’ll see 4 easy to use buttons allowing you to add a new vehicle, Registration, Maintenance or fuel fill up.
Clicking on one of the vehicle cards opens that vehicle to see all the pertinent data.

Complicated Vehicles

In my Home Management app, under my RV I also made extra pages that I removed from this doc. You can add anything you want to keep track of. For me, I added pages for all those extras that aren’t part of the RV but are often necessary. I created a page for towing and had links to the tow bar, the towing brake system, etc. I also created a page for all the cooking appliances we have that we use. For us that means a Blackstone griddle, a Weber grill, a Camp Chef Ranger II, etc. I will look up all the user guides and store them on Google Drive then paste a link or embed the actual document on separate pages and organize them. This gives me one place to find anything I need pertaining to the RV.

Gas Mileage

Supporting Tables

Under you’ll find some supporting tables. These consist of:
- businesses that can be selected from the Maintenance table.
- gas stations that can be selected when inputting a fuel fill up.
- popular manufacturers of RV components that you can select when setting up an RV and all of it’s components
- list of items to select when scheduling or performing maintenance on a vehicle.
All of these tables can be edited directly if you want to edit them. Each of these tables also can have a quick input when you are for example adding a fuel fill up and you don’t see the gas station you are using, you can just type that name. You would then see a little + with that name and you can click enter on that and it will automatically add that new name into the proper lookup table.
Now it’s your turn. Go play with the doc. I left some sample data in for you to get a feel for how the doc works. When you’re ready, you have one choice to make.
Do you want to remove ALL the data including the supportting tables listed above, or do you want to keep those supporting tables? Take a look at them under Admin. You might just want to clean those up a bit and leave them with some data. If you do, then leave the setting below OFF. If you prefer to delete those tables as well and input all new supporting data as you go, then flip the switch below to ON. It will be blue when ON, gray when off.
Clear ALL tables including stores, maintenance items, etc.
Ready? Set? GO!
Press the button below to delete all the data (supporting tables will only be deleted if toggle is on above)
Delete all data
If you press this button and regret it, you should be able to ctrl-z and undo it. If not, you can always go grab this doc again and start over.
