FAQs

What if I don't have a Google or Apple account?

No worries - we now support email + password sign in or SSO for our enterprise users.

What if I use my Google account to log in but want to use 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 support@coda.io 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 paged by clicking your avatar in the top right. Here, 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 & password, you would have to explicitly share docs between your old account and your new account on a doc-by-doc or folder-by-folder basis 

I'm trying to set-up email + password login for an email address I use with Google Login, but when I click "Sign In" and enter my email address, I just get the Google Login (or SSO) promptーHelp!

If you already use an email address to login to Coda using Google Login, you cannot use that same email address to set-up email + password login.

This is likely because you are choosing "Sign In" and not "Sign Up." If you click "Sign Up" and use your existing email address (matching it exactly and with case-sensitivity of all letters) you should be able to configure email + password login.

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.

To learn more about the Sign in with Apple and “Hide My Email” features, check out their support article.

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 (see above screenshot) also likely apply to these other services.

I’m hitting an error message when trying to “Sign in with Apple” - 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 - support@coda.io - for more help.

How can I share my real 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.
