How to share your doc

You can share your Coda doc with anyone, as long as they have a Google email address. Sharing a document will automatically grant your collaborator access to the Coda beta. Invited users can have read- or edit-access to the Coda doc. Just click the Invite button in the upper-right corner: 

Searching for others at your company

If your account is part of a Google G Suite, suggestions for others at your company will show as you type.  

If suggestions do not show, the administrator needs to configure G Suite settings to enable API access, contact sharing, and external directory sharing of domain and public data.

How do I give someone read-only access?

To give someone read-only access, click on the Invite button in the top right of the screen.  Next, add the person's email address and change the sharing setting to Can view and press Invite. Keep in mind that read-only users will have access to read comments but they will not be able to add or edit any comments.

If this document will be important to everyone in your organization. You can set up read-only access for all of them by clicking Get shareable link in the Share menu instead.

Can I hide a specific Section from someone?

At this time, we do not support Section level access control.  But, we want to hear from users like you about what you would expect to see. If you have feedback or a bright idea, send it our way at help@coda.io. Stay tuned!

Can I share with people who aren't part of the beta yet?

Yes! You can invite up to 10 people who aren't part of your company, and as many people in your company as you like.
