I'm using Notion to write weekly retrospectives of what our team has worked on. Is there a way to get reminded every week with a recurring notification so I don't forget to add the details to Notion before they're due?
One of the best things about Notion is its flexibility. Its notes pages aren't simply places to type static text—they're also tools to list tasks, embed data from other software, create spreadsheets, and more. Among those extra features is Notion's handy option to add reminders to notes.
If you add a new kanban project board to Notion, by default its cards will have a date field where you can add a due date to track your work. That same feature works everywhere in Notion. Simply type
/remind, press return, then select the due date text to set when you want Notion to remind you (on the due time, before, or after) as well as if you want to add an end time. You'll then get a notification in Notion when your note is due.
Notion doesn't have recurring reminders, so if you need to do the same task on a schedule, instead of checking it off on completion just update the reminder to the next time you need to do the task to get reminded again.
Especially for personal to-dos and tasks that you need to accomplish outside of your team, what is your favorite app and tricks for getting the most out of it?
Last week, Slack announced some new features, including a WYSIWYG rich text editor.
Along with the addition of this feature, they changed the Markdown functionality to render formatting in-line.
