About Notion

Notion is a digital workspace that lets small to large businesses streamline and manage notes, tasks, projects, records, calendar and more. Key features include portfolio tracker, designer templates, database management, documentation and data export. Deployed on a web-interface or on-premise platform, Notion provides businesses with a product roadmap, task lists and repository patterns, streamlining project workflows, from initiation to completion. It provides mobile applications for iOS and Android devices, which let users view and manage completed, in progress and not started tasks, even from remote locations. Additionally, it allows businesses to collaborate and perform team tasks, share meeting notes, update project expense report and maintain benefits/vacation policies. Notion comes with an application programming interface (API), which lets businesses integrate the system with several third-party integrations such as Google Sheets, Twitter, Figma and more. Pricing is available on a monthly subscription and support is extended via email, phone and documentation.

Notion can eat Google Docs for breakfast

Pros

Notion is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of document creation. It offers a loose structure that provides an opinion of how things can work, but is overwhelmingly flexible in what users can do. Never before have I so quickly been able to
- create docs
- integrate them with dates
- add external media

Cons

Notion's pricing structure is fair, but it's hard to beat free! Google Docs is only surviving, imo, because so many companies already pay for GSuite.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft OneNote, Jira, Google Docs and Asana

Reasons for Switching to Notion

Notion is simple to use, beautiful, and flexible.

Best Multi-Function Platform

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

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.

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

Alternatives Considered

Google Keep and Evernote Teams

Reasons for Choosing Notion

Evernote was not developing their features as quickly as Notion and Notion offered features and functionality that Evernote didn't have at the time

I Run My Life with Notion

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.

Alternatives Considered

Trello

Reasons for Choosing Notion

I still like Trello but Notion has so many more functions and options for integrations.

Reasons for Switching to Notion

Again, Notion just offers so much, I have yet to find anything that compares.
