Coda's mobile experience lets you access the power of Coda on the go, making it easy to find what you need and take action. Access Coda from your phone or iPad by navigating to coda.io, downloading the Coda iOS app, visiting the play store on Android or opening a link to any doc.
You can view and edit any doc on mobile, create and share new docs, receive and review notifications, and easily respond to comments. We'll walk you through just how to do that below.
Within this article you'll find...
Create and share a doc
To create a new doc on mobile, click the circular orange icon with the + sign, in the lower right hand corner of the app’s homepage.
To share your doc with others, tap the 3 dots in the upper left, and select the Share option.
Open a doc
When you log into the mobile app, you'll see a list of all your docs as well as a search bar for easy access. Simply tap the doc you'd like to open.
View and add pages
When you open a doc or create a new one, you’ll automatically be taken to the top page in the doc. To see all pages in the doc and create new pages, simply select the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) in the upper left corner. To add a new page, click the blue + New page button.
View table data
For most tables, Coda automatically chooses a mobile-optimized card layout based on the data in the table. In some cases, no card fits well and Coda will show the table.
Tap on any card to see all of the columns from that row in a full-screen view. And if you want to see the original table, just click the table icon in the top-right.
There's a few cases where you may still see a regular table instead of cards:
If the display column is hidden, you won't see cards since there's not a clear column to choose as the title for the card.
If your table has many numeric columns, you'll see it as a table will column headers so it's clear what each number represents.
If your table has buttons, these are available by swiping a card to the right:
Edit your doc
There are a few ways to edit your Coda doc on mobile. For example, any text in a page can be edited with the same rich text toolbar you see on the desktop.
For tables, you can add and remove rows with a simple swipe. Choose to insert a row and a blank one appears for entering values. Within any existing row, values can be changed for each cell that isn't populated by a formula.
Coda supports email notifications on desktop and notifications are supported on mobile too! A notification will appear when a doc is shared to you, you are @mentioned in a doc, there is new activity in a comment thread you have contributed to, and when a custom button or automation sends a notification. Tapping into a notification will take you directly into the doc so you can check it out. You can also quickly access all your notifications by tapping the Notifications tab on the bottom right of the app home screen.
Make sure to accept Notifications for the Coda app on your mobile device to receive these.
Leave and view comments
Coda is a collaborative experience when a doc is shared with other users. From the Coda app homepage, you can quickly access and respond to comments across all of your docs by tapping the Notifications tab on the bottom right. Within a doc, you can show or hide comments by tapping the 3 dots (...) in the upper right. From here you can show or hide active or resolved comments.
When you see text that’s highlighted yellow in your doc, tap it to show the comment thread. You can respond directly from there, and also edit or delete the comments you have made. Tapping the icons in the upper right of the comment will enable you to react to, resolve, or activate any comment.
Lastly, you can copy a link to any comment by selecting the three dots in the upper right of the comment. This will put a link directly to the comment on your clipboard. Paste it in an email, text message, or note to share with others that have access to the doc. You can also @ reference team members in your response to draw their attention.
