Signing into Coda

Head to and click Sign in in the top-right corner.

Depending on your team's settings, you'll be able to authenticate with email and password, Google account, Microsoft account, Apple account, or—if you're subscribed to an enterprise plan—your company's SSO provider.

Once you're signed in, you'll land on your Docs page. You'll see all the docs you have access to listed here, and all the workspaces you are a member of will be listed on the left-hand menu.

Signing out of Coda

To sign out of Coda, click your picture in the top-right corner of any Coda doc, then the three vertical dots, and, finally, Sign out.


What if I use my Google account or Sign in with Apple to log in but want to switch to email/password?

Note: the following only applies if your Google Login is associated with a company-managed Google Workspace. If this does not apply to you, you can skip to the second paragraph.

If you already use Google Login, but would like to create a new account that utilizes email and password login using a different email address, you should make sure your company’s IT policy and Coda administrator allow non-Google login; this may require disconnecting your workspace from Google Drive if it is currently connected. Let us know by emailing, and we can help you make this transition.

Once you are cleared per the above, you can set up email and password login for a new email address by following these steps. Head on over to your Account settings page by clicking your picture/avatar in the top-right corner, then the three vertical dots. Once there, you'll see a new Security Settings section where you can add a password that will initiate a verification email to the email you have on file.

After confirming, you'll be able to log in with that email and password, bypassing any Google account authentication.

Can I merge two accounts together?

No. If you set up a new account with a new email and password, you will have to have join the workspace as another member and explicitly share docs between your old account and your new account on a doc-by-doc or folder-by-folder basis. For more on how to transfer doc ownership, check out this article.

Can I sign in with my Apple account?

Yes—just follow the “Sign in with Apple” login prompts. Note that you’ll have the option to either use your real email address, or to hide your real email and instead use a generated private address. If you choose to hide it, a private email address will be generated for you. This may make collaboration and other scenarios more difficult, so be sure to understand these before approving.

Important note: More vendors are introducing features that allow you to hide your original email address when creating new accounts. Just note that the challenges this poses to collaboration and sharing (listed in the above screenshot) will also likely apply to these other services.

I’m getting an error message when trying to “Sign in with Apple" with a hidden email address. What’s going on?

If you’re encountering an error when trying to use Apple’s “Hide My Email” feature, this is likely because you’ve already signed in to Coda using other authentication providers. Signing in with private email addresses from Apple ID is not supported for existing users using multiple authentication providers. You can instead choose the “Share My Email” option, or you can contact Coda support at for more help.

How can I share my real Apple ID address after I’ve hidden it?

If you’re using the "Sign in with Apple" option and have already chosen to hide your email address but now want to undo that, check out this article from Apple Support.
