With Coda, you can use drag-and-drop templates to quickly add things like topic voting tables or team sentiment trackers to your docs. But sometimes, you might just want to add a quick point to check-in and get feedback inline with your text, or to add a reaction button to a table you’ve already built. Read on to learn how!

Adding reactions to text

You can add a reaction anywhere on the page in Coda by typing /reaction. Select “Reaction” from the quick insertion menu, and then customize:

  1. Give your reaction a name so you an reference it in formulas or automation, and find it in your doc map
  2. Choose which icon you want to visually represent the reaction; while we show the most commonly-used reactions, you can also search the icons8 library that has been imported to Coda for alternatives
  3. Choose whether to display the number of times the reaction has been engaged, or the people who have engaged with it [Tip: Even if you choose “Number,” you can hover over a reaction to see the people who have interacted with it]
  4. Set the size as Small, Medium, or Large
  5. Add “Disable if” logic if desired; for example, you may want to disable reactions after a certain date and time

Adding reactions to tables

Maybe you want to get feedback on a set of ideas in a table, or sort rows based on how people vote have voted for them. You can add a reaction column to any table:

  1. Either change an existing column type to “Reaction” (this will overwrite existing values), or add a new column and choose “Reaction” as the column type
  2. Choose which icon you want to visually represent the reaction; while we show the most commonly-used reactions, you can also search the icons8 library that has been imported to Coda for alternatives
  3. Choose whether to display the number of times the reaction has been engaged, or the people who have engaged with it [Tip: Even if you choose “Number,” you can hover over a reaction to see the people who have interacted with it]
  4. Add “Disable if” logic if desired; for example, you may want to disable reactions after a certain date and time
