About Notion

Notion is a project and workflow management solution that helps businesses streamline operations related to goal setting, status tracking, lead management, and more on a centralized platform. It enables users to utilize the drag-and-drop interface to organize, rearrange, and develop ideas, thoughts or plans.

Notion allows businesses to build and maintain a knowledge base for multiple topics such as task instructions, coding guidelines, HR workflows, and more. With the built-in calendar and kanban boards, users can create roadmaps and monitor tasks based on completion status, category, priority, or assigned team members. In order to enhance collaboration, team members can add comments on tasks and projects in order to start discussions.

Notion comes with an application programming interface (API), which enables businesses to integrate the system with several third-party solutions including Slack, Figma, and InVision. It enables users to create to-do lists, prepare meeting notes, and set up weekly agendas on a unified platform.

Best Multi-Function Platform

Reviewed on 06/06/2022

Notion allows me to manage my entire life, whether it comes to school/work, finances, or private life. I cannot name one platform that does what Notion does any better or to the same extent and I do not see myself departing from this platform any time soon - it is so versatile, so even when my life goes through drastic changes, I am able to adjust the way I use Notion to fit my needs.

Pros

I use Notion mostly for taking notes - separate pages, toggles, to-do-lists, and tables make note taking so easy! I admire how customisable every page is and the many block options I have to make my experience personal and unique. Notion also allows me to make really effective to-do-lists and manage my tasks and projects because of this range of options. I find it particularly helpful that I can embed and link other pages, websites, and documents - it allows me to keep everything in one place.

Cons

On occasion, Notion has not recognised that I have been online even when I have a stable wifi connection. This applies specifically to eduroam connections. Other than that, I cannot point out any other problems or negatives about this platform.

Customizable but complicated as a new user

Reviewed on 12/05/2022

Pros

There are a lot of different features and functionality. It is extremely customizable.

Cons

Do not attempt to utilize without going through some tutorials and knowing what you need. Not for beginner project management system users.

I absolutely love Notion. Since the first day I discovered it, it has been in integral part of my business and personal functions. There isn't anything I haven't been able to use Notion for, so far.

Pros

I use Notion as my Life Dashboard. It is the first thing I open in the morning, and it is open for the rest of the day. I use it for everything from trip planning to client records. I track my budget, my health, my tasks...everything.

Cons

It took me a while to get a grasp on linking databases and I do wish it was a little more "user friendly" and intuitive...but there are tutorials and plenty of templates and examples.

Best tool I use on a daily basis to ideate and take notes

The best app I use on a daily basis and couldn't live with out it

Pros

The ability to ideate in the moment and document my thoughts and ideas in real-time through typing and dictation is amazing and being able to link to other pages and podcasts and videos as well as upload images and access an image library, just to mention a small number of the amazing features of this app that I use on a daily basis

Cons

At this point I don't have the ability to search words in my uploaded handwritten paper notes
