Why Coda docs

Google Docs was originally designed as a platform for creating content for print. However, the way people work has evolved, and we now need more flexibility and collaboration. Coda docs, while still printable, prioritize flexibility and collaboration.

Unlike Google Docs, which can become an endless scroll, Coda docs are organized with nested pages. Pages are dedicated to specific information, similar to tabs in a spreadsheet. Subpages are pages that are nested under another page. In Coda, pages don't have page numbers or fixed page sizes, but you can name pages, add sub-pages, and assign icons to differentiate topics.

Beyond the basics

Coda docs allow you to embed and engage with content from other tools, allowing your team to work from a single doc rather than opening a new tab. With Full-page embeds, you bring Canva, Figma, Miro, or even Google Docs/Sheets, right into your doc.

Similarly, sync pages will allow you to bring in a page or pages from a different Coda doc. Click here to learn how to embed content into your Coda docs.
