The documenting master tool

2020-07-17

But as the product has evolved, we have used the product as our task management system too.

Pros

And it has great integrations with third party applications, plus you can connect through multiple API client libraries.

Cons

At the very beginning, our team experienced performance issues. The tool is so robust that needs memory and some browsers were not supported.

Brianne Confer

Much More Powerful Than A Spreadsheet

2020-07-20

Our main use of Coda is project management. We are able to prioritize projects, create/assign tasks, view project status reports, create calendar reminders, click buttons for email updates, track progress according to target completion dates, and more.

Pros

It also allows you to easily pull in "people" (example: who last modified this row, or tag someone in a comment), "packs" integrations (with gmail, Google Calendar, Slack, etc.), and so much more.

Cons

Overall, it was pretty easy to learn Coda.

Best configurable software

2020-07-17

I'm very satisfied with Coda, it solved multiple management problems that I had before.

Pros

It's super simple to create professional-looking systems and dashboards. Coda also has integration with many other softwares, making it even more powerful!

Cons

The only limitation of the software is that it's difficult to handle large number of records at the same time (millions of records).

Best do-it-all software for startups

2020-07-17

Excellent

Pros

Coda is our go to software for the management of our daily activities, storage of relevant information and setting up tasks.

The software is pretty straight forward but still requires some learning as compared to something like Google Drive.

Coda helps me shorten down my discovery and estimation process for sales.

2020-07-16

It has really helped our team organize the management of our deliverables and work together.

Pros

The ability to tag other people in notes for notification. Exists in the cloud so I can bookmark any link I need into my bookmark manager.

Cons

So far, nothing. Coda is all about how you use it.

Great product once you figure it out

2020-07-16

creating a dynamic list of customers who have not ordered in a set (customizable) amount of time.

Pros

I was lucky to have a friend share her customized product with me.

Cons

It's not the most user friendly and sometimes the customer service reps talk well above my understanding.

Super handy to prototype data tracking/keep your team on track

2020-07-16

Perfect, we were younger and needed to quickly prototype and I found it a great place to centralise playbooks, dashboards, and easily collaborate

Pros

- Ability to enrich and add heaps of integrations to the software (i.e. pull data from other areas into it) - Super easy to use - Fast - Comprehensive - Templates that can allow you to rapidly get started

Cons

More native integrations to platforms such as chargebee

Unlimited power and agility for 0 to 12$/m/team

2020-07-14

Amazing, game changer for the business efficiency, speed, agility.

Pros

Unbelievably powerful, you can build all the most advanced CRM / ERP / project management tools and features you can imagine in a few hours, integrate with the whole universe, and make your ops people (sales,...) save time and be happy.

Cons

People who are not really at ease with Google sheets / zapier can't build as advanced workflows, but it's okay.

Super flexible

2020-07-17

Pros

Ability to have your ticket management / to-do list tracking like Trello in the same place as your wiki / knowledge hub

Cons

Sometime a little too technical and messy for end users. e.g. tables not having an out of the box search feature, and the workaround of using another table to act as the search box not being very clean.

Coda is the ultimate Team unifier

2020-07-17

Pros

I really like how several of us can be on a certain document at one time (similar to the Google docs functionality) and all of us can collaborate in real time without having to jump from one application to another.

Cons

When I say stats, I don't mean high order stats (such as Chi-square tests, T-tests, etc.) but averages and counts based on specific criteria and so forth.

Exactly what I was looking for

2020-07-17

Coda allowed me to create a custom document to contain all the information relevant to each project.

Pros

The ability to view, store, calculate and reference so much data made it much easier to find the information needed easily and display the information in the way I want it shown based on who I'm sharing that page with.

Cons

The tables cannot be designed on a tablet, which I found very frustrating.

Easier collaboration vs. Notion

2020-07-16

Coda is a quick start for anyone familiar with google docs or other collaborative platforms. I use Coda for managing a team of 20 volunteers on web content publishing projects.

Pros

I like the templates library and integrations.

Cons

I am waiting for a rollup function to include all team comments across documents.

There really isn't a competitive alternative

2020-07-17

So much so that, while their free plan is surprisingly feature rich with high limits, I finally decided to pull the trigger and commit by purchasing a plan.

Pros

The formula and control options are also second-to-none both in just how much you can do with them and also how they can be brought together into a much more usable interface.

Cons

Also, they have got to add in the option to import data from a file - this copy and paste from a spreadsheet is a pain and not always reliable.

feature impact, ease of use and integration with existing business

2020-07-17

Outstanding, see other reviews for further details.

Pros

It is feature rich, with a constantly expanding portfolio of API options, built in capabilities and all important 3rd party integrations, this enables easy integration into existing business infrastructure and quickly demonstrates return on investment once things start to get set up.

Cons

As coda is much younger than its competitors some of its features are still in development, for example the API only recently came out of beta (as of 17/07/20).

Good and flexible

2020-07-17

We managed to create some internal processes to develop projects around some templates we created in coda and that helped us significantly.

Pros

The collaborative side of the documents is a great feature and works well in small teams.

Cons

Most of the integrations with outside software are poor and have very little to no customization/parameterization.

Great Low Code Platform for SME Businesses

2020-07-17

Support have been fantastic and the software have yielded plenty of benefits for us which we couldn't get elsewhere (and we spent a lot of time trying)

Pros

They have also setup integrations with other platforms, when combined with their automation features, it is a powerful solution.

Cons

Some in built features for workflow mapping would be great but that isn't a core part of the software.

My New Favorite Tool

2020-07-17

The face that I could build out all the tabs and pages I needed has kept me organized and on track, not something i could have done on google sheets or any other pm tool for this particular need.

Pros

The best part for me is to easily collaborate with others in real time, the feature is really smooth.

Cons

Honestly, there isn't much i don't like about it, so I don't have much to say here. Maybe more on the free plan for those just getting started?

Love using Coda

2020-07-16

Pros

I love how flexible Coda is integrating into my existing workflow. With so many integrations available, it was quite easy to plug and play.

Cons

For some of the more advanced features there is a little bit of a learning curve which could be improved with more templates and video guides.

Camille's personal experience

2020-07-17

I can control my finances and my time appointments (I have to register the hours spent per project in my job) in a very practical way.

Pros

Particularly, I use Gmail integration a lot to send my job appointments.

Cons

I also dont't like the date formats, whenever I try to pass the data to some spreadsheet I can't because of the date formats.

Using coda to organize

2020-07-19

I have been able to set up an online interactive system to organize our activities in a way that would have required much more effort with any other tool.

Pros

With the help of tables, action buttons and 'smart' views you can do things that would take much more time to setup with other tools. A lot of functionality can be implemented without ever reading any documentation.

Cons

There is a limit to the amount of information (or data) that can (practically) be stored in a (multi-page) doc.

Great reinvention of the spreadsheet

2020-07-16

Love playing with the new features but is lacking in the mobile experience at the same level of detail they put into the desktop experience.

Pros

Love the design and look and feel of coda.

Cons

They have barely made changes or improved the design and usability of it since it came out.

Great experience

2020-07-17

Pros

I like that you can set up almost all your documents. The cross-table functionality it's very useful. The monthly improvements also give an incremental value to the platform.

Cons

Also I don't like the permissions and visibility modes, are to simple and don't accomplish my needs.
