Coda

I've been testing out a new document system, kind of a new take on Google Docs. It's called Coda, and their site is coda.io.

It's a new way of making documents, but it integrates really well with Google Drive, and can import things like Google Sheets, CSVs, or Excel documents. It's kind of a hybrid of Google Sheets and Docs, where you can make a document, but add tables in to the document. Tables are a little different than a spreadsheet though, and there are some really cool things you can do with it.

One of my favorite things is that you can create a table for the data, and then build out different views to that data for different situations. The table views are separate, but can refer to the same data. For instance, if you had one team that was working on a project, but your main table had all of the project data from all of the teams, it's very easy to have a specific view to that data just for one of the teams.

I recommend signing up for an invite, and checking out some of the templates. If you know me personally, feel free to reach out for an invite.
