Coda is already one of my favorite tools that enables creation of powerful app-like experiences with the familiar and simple paradigm of docs and tables.

With Packs, Coda gets supercharged by easily connecting with popular external services such as Slack, Github and Intercom. This opens up brand new use cases to create simple workflow and project management tools to better aligns teams, provide more transparency, and more easily get shi--things done. Check out the examples--you'll be impressed.

Pros:

- Extends the power of Coda w integrations to popular external services

- Elegantly designed integrations makes adding new services simple

Cons:

More packs please!

Ever find yourself opening up a hundred tabs, copying and pasting the exact right information or paragraph between tabs into your spreadsheet and then realize you got the wrong paragraph and now you need to rework the whole table?

Packs are an incredibly powerful tool, where Coda did the heavy lifting for you. Packs essentially "normalize" data from the internet and turn it into something useful that you can do something with.

One simple example.. I spent weeks building a dashboard in Google Sheets of data pulled for multiple public stocks that were relevant to our company.

With Coda Packs, I built the basics of what I had created in less than 10 minutes.

Imagine being able to do this for every type of data that you interact with. It's an extremely powerful way to create the "tools" you need to make decisions particularly when the apps you use don't quite give you the report you exactly need or when you need to combine data from multiple different apps.

Pros:

- put an end to a million tabs

- normalize data over the web

Cons:

- need more documentation on Pack APIs!

- need more Packs!

I just began to use it as a YouTube video referencer. When designing games you need references in a doc. I just made a simple table that contains the embedded videos.

Soon, my plan is to make a social media trigger. Just add the services, prepare your text and medias

And just push the button to post.

There are so many things to be done!

Pros:

Simple, terribly powerful, lot's of use cases

Cons:

I want to keep it secret because it's so good!

Coda has saved me so much time normalizing data, and even organizing my business. It's funny because I was struggling with Excel and Numbers just when I received the invite, so I was able to see how much better it is right when I was going through all the typical painpoints of that type of software.

So many good concepts:

- Columns can have a default value and a column formula, no more dragging your formula accross cells ;

- Functions are much more powerful and let you write without thinking about cell coordinates. The syntax is very JS-y so it's much easier for a developer to use it, and I suspect it ends up being easier for non-coding people too ;

- Being able to regroup data, hide columns and filter rows so fast is a blessing.

- It's super easy to view your data under a different angle with all the integrated modes: Kanban board, Calendar…

I really like Coda and can't stop talking about it as you can see.

Pros:

- Excel, but made for developers

Cons:

- Still in Beta, so a few bugs here and there

looking forward to the gmail pack! Auto-generate emails of remaining tasks on project plans, and to automate processes utilized in Coda i.e. when X happens, send an email to this person with the rows info.

Just try it.

Pros:

Awesome

Cons:

Nah. Nope.

We have been using coda for a variety of purposes and have found it to be a powerful way to visualize and engagement with our data. The learning curve is a bit steep, but if you have someone willing to put the time into making a high quality doc, the benefits to the average user are great!

Pros:

* Makes formulas and docs even more powerful

* Streamlines integration with various external services

Cons:

* More packs
