What's new in Coda

Hear from our team about recent updates to Coda that keep your information secure.


Grids (simple tables) allow you to create beautiful layouts that showcase your content, without worrying about column names, filters, or other advanced table features.

More updates

Column and table sizes

The doc map in your docs now has information on the size of individual tables and columns to help troubleshoot any issues and keep your docs performing smoothly.

Restricted Packs syncs

Use the "Edit sync fields" toggle to prevent other users from revealing additional data by changing the sync parameters or creating another sync table.

Sync page access control

Sync specific pages into another doc without everyone needing access to the source, giving collaborators visibility while keeping information secure.

Folder permissions

When sharing a folder, you can now specify the level of access (view, comment, or edit) given to users. Frequently used folders can be added as a shortcut that appears on the lefthand menu of your workspace.

More updates

Table paste options

Pasting a table will offer a clear option of creating a connected view or duplicating data, to prevent accidental data overrides.

Simpler column calculations

The column calculation builder is easier to use, with a simpler set of options and a menu to specify other settings.

What's new in Coda

Editable canvas column previews

The power of a canvas column without the added friction of needing to open a row to make edits. Editing, commenting, and suggesting changes on a canvas column cell can now be done with a simple double click.

Snowflake Pack

Coda is partnering with Snowflake to turn data into action. Our new Snowflake Pack lets you integrate live data seamlessly into your team's workflows. And because Packs are building blocks in Coda’s canvas, you can turn Snowflake data into a chart, you can add columns to it, and connect it to a different set of data as well.

More updates

Background colors for groups

When grouping by a color-coded select list or relation, the entire group display now has that color. Scanning, locating related info, and making connections across your data is easier than ever.

Automatic formula calculation management

When you reduce the size of a large doc that had previously reached the formula calculation limit, Coda will detect when the doc is at a manageable size again and automatically enable calculations.

Simpler Cross-doc authentication

Setting up a sync for the Cross-doc Pack is now simpler and uses a native authentication method instead of API tokens. This makes it easier to see whose sync account is used in a particular table, so troubleshooting any issues is straightforward.

Custom holiday settings

To prevent tasks from being scheduled on holidays, you can now configure custom holidays by setting a reference table in the region and date settings menu. Your timelines and enforced dependencies will automatically take these holidays into account when tasks are moved.

Without you ever having to write a single line of code. Email sections: You can now send rich content (a section, or bulleted list, etc.) in an email in addition to sending out simple text emails. Packs: Packs let you connect your doc to apps you use to design, code, and communicate. So you can make docs as powerful as apps.

The more visualizations you add, the better you can understand your data and help others understand it too. Comment reply notifications: Now receive a notification whenever someone replies to a comment thread you've participated in. Doc owners also receive notifications for all comments. Presentation mode: For your meetings and presentations, you may want to help your attendees focus on what’s most important - enter Coda presentation mode. Scale Column with Icons: Use the Scale column format to add icons to rate, track, or measure items in your table. Doc Map: The doc map now lets you see and understand the relationships between views, lookups, controls and formulas that work together to make a doc powerful. Click the link icon next to any view or the map icon at the right of the toolbar to start understanding and exploring. Last Week / This Week Picker: People love filtering tables by date range. We had this month, last year, etc, but we didn’t have this week and next week, which is how you actually work. Conditional Format Duplication: Big time-saver if you’re a big conditional format user. Before you had to rewrite the formula every time. Now you just duplicate an existing rule and edit. Inline Code Block: The in-line version of our code block style! Just do what you’d usually do with markdown. Emojis in your collapsed section List: A lot of you use emojis in your section names — a great way to quickly spot the section you care about. Now, when you minimize the section list, we preserve the emoji from your doc title. (In January 2019 we added section icons that give you even more options for how you express yourself and explain your docs). Favicons in your browser tab: Check it out — your doc has its own browser tab favicon based on your title. All you have to do is choose the emoji that best represents your doc. Buttons: Pressing a button can add, modify, and delete a row in any table. It can even push another button. One day Coda buttons will be able to trigger actions of all sorts, like order a pizza or send a push notification. But for right now, this is pretty cool. Spell check: We finally have spell check! Markdown: We added markdown shortcuts, so you can seamlessly format your data and prose without taking your hands off the keyboard. Colors: We stepped up our text styling game with color. The little things are the big things. Coda + Zapier: Coda is now on Zapier, which means you can connect your Coda docs with over 1000 different apps. Want to update a row every time something updates in Jira? Done. Want to get notified on Slack when someone adds a row to a table? Also done. A gallery for Makers: Building docs is only half of it. The exciting part is watching people use and stretch them in ways you hadn’t imagined. We filled up our gallery with over 80 templates. Add yours, and see what fellow makers do with it. Minimalist tables: Presentation is everything. By hiding your table’s title, column headers, and gridlines, your data can appear suspended in space. A minimalist’s magic trick! Assign before sharing: Now you can add coworkers to tables before sharing the doc with them. (Or sneakily add them without ever telling them.) Also selectively turn off people notifications for certain columns. Because nobody likes a barrage. Multi-line column headers: Adjust column header height to wrap text onto multiple lines. Skinnier columns = tighter tables. And no word cut-off. New date formats: We added YYYY-MM-DD and DD/MM/YYYY for our international friends, and a day-of-the-week display for the “calendar challenged” among us. New learn page: We launched the learn page as the proper home for all the ways you can learn to be a Coda pro. Import Trello and CSV files: We made it easier to import your existing Trello boards and Google/Excel sheets into Coda. Named formulas: Name formulas and define values, and easily reference them throughout your doc. Clean table headers: Remember how your column headers felt cluttered with format icons? We took them out, so you can focus on what's in the table, rather than what's on top of it. Don't worry, you'll still see them on hover. Remember collapsed sections: Coda remembers which sections you've expanded or collapsed, so your team members don't have to rifle through the doc to find where they're supposed to be. Quick add columns: We made it so you can choose a column format as you add it. Carpal tunnel is real, so every click matters. Use Row Properties to quickly insert info like when a row was created or who modified it last. Currency symbols: We started scratching the surface of our international user experience, adding some international keyboard support and a bunch of new currency symbols, including the bitcoin symbol (Ƀ). Save draft comments: We now keep draft comments if you click away, so when you come back you can finish and submit your comment Breathable text: Adjusted text spacing between paragraphs and bullets to improve readability. People avatars: Added people photos next to their names in docs. Drag & drop to move tables: Drag and drop to move tables. Duplicate rows: Duplicate any row in a table. Copy links to rows: Right-click any row to copy a link directly to that row. Smarter Copy/Pasting: It used to be a pain to migrate your Excel or Google sheet into Coda. Copy/pasting meant reformatting, resizing, and rejiggering your data. Try it now. Coda automatically makes sense of your data, organizing it into different column formats, and giving you a smarter, more useful table right away. Lookup from Table: Tables can talk—to each other! We added a new column format called “Lookup from Table." It lets you reach into other tables to pull the info you want. It works as a formula, too. Think vlookup, but way less complicated. Revision History: You don't have to worry about losing changes anymore. We added revision history to archive every change and let you go back in time. Our First Ever Template Gallery: In our new Template Gallery you’ll find inspiring personal and work focused examples of the product in action, built for you to get started fast. And who knows - your creation may be featured sometime soon! Grouping 2.0: Setting up a Group is easy within the column header, but what if you want to order them differently - like when you want to show a status progression in a project tracker? How about collapsing your groups to only expose the information you need? Or maybe you just want to create a category before entering in the products? Well it's here at last! Section Folders: We've now added the concept of collapsable Folders which allow you to further organize your work! Formula Help: We heard from you that while our formula language is powerful, it can be a bit difficult to learn. So we've taken a big step forward in assisting you through the process - just check out this example entering a filter with just your tab and arrow keys. In-Doc Search: You told us that while a simple to-do list is pretty easy to navigate, finding what you need in a team project doc was approaching needle-in-a-haystack territory. Now you don't need to worry about misplacing a meeting note or finding someone in your contact list - it's all at your fingertips with search! Speedy Keyboard Entry: We know entering data in any tool can be tedious at times - why add switching between keyboard and mouse to the list? With our enhanced keyboard navigation you never have to leave the keys. Now you can type and tab your way through rich-text columns, select lists, and even date pickers! Hyperlink Unfurl: Links connect the internet. Your docs should feel connected too. Hyperlinks used to be a pain in Coda. Now every article, spec, or Google search is just a copy-paste away! Canvases and Sections: Removing the shackles of only tables from the product ー we introduce the document surface! Views and Formulas: Tables can talk... to each other! And we have a rich formula language to boot. Our first table! Wonder where we started? Well like many current-day Coda docs, it all starts with a table...
