Controls allow you to take your Coda doc to the next level. With Controls, you can add interactive elements to your documents that are typically reserved for applications - 

How to add a Control

Using Interactive Filters you can  right click on any column to create a control & filter by that column with one click.

If you have an existing control -

You can filter a table or view by the control's value using the Matches function. This makes it easy to match not just on exact values, but also for lists and ranges.

Simply click the filter icon to apply your formula of choice to your table.

For example:

  • Priority is the priority column of the To-Do List table

  • Priority Selector is the name of the dropdown menu control

Note: When you use a control to filter data, the filtered view of your data will be visible to all doc collaborators. If you’d like an easy way to clear your filters or set a default value, you can configure buttons or automations with the “Set control value” function.
