Coda is a software company that provides a powerful productivity platform for creating and managing documents, spreadsheets, and databases in one centralized location. With Coda, users can streamline their workflows by integrating all of their data and tools into one workspace, eliminating the need to switch between multiple apps. One of the key features of Coda is the ability to sync tables across different documents, or "cross-doc" syncing. To do this, users simply need to create a new table in one document and use the "Cross-doc" formula to reference it in another document. This allows users to collaborate on the same data in real-time, even if they are working in different Coda documents.

How to sync a table cross-doc in Coda

Syncing a table across different Coda documents can be incredibly helpful, especially if you're working with a large amount of data. To get started syncing tables across docs, you'll first need to open the document that contains the table you want to sync. You can select an existing document or create a new one. Once you've selected your destination document, click on "Create sync" to start syncing your table across multiple documents.
