Simple single source of truth with intuitive organizational workflows
I love the fact that I can do the work of several different apps all in Notion.
Albeit the capabilities aren't always equal to the stand-alone "specialist" app that is being replaced, they are often more than good enough to get the job done and the benefits of consolidating/simplifying app usage far outweighs the typical shortcomings. For example, while not as full featured as Asana for project management, Notion definitely gets the job done for me for managing projects. Same with Google Docs, Google Sheets (except where integration is needed), Evernote, Pocket and more recently Google Calendar. I've literally replaced all of these with Notion. What I give up in minor features (at least to me) and more than make up for in using just ONE app for all.
I love the flexibility Notion provides. Want a table? You got it. Want a document? Sure. Want a kanban? Done. It takes many of the tools companies I worked with previously had to cobble together and puts it all in one package.
Notion is highly customizable and incredibly flexible. We've been using it to build out our internal knowledge bases, company wiki, and organize teams and client info. Being able to link relevant pages, databases, etc. has been incredibly useful.
Once you conquer the Notion learning curve, you can master your business and life. The perfect way to centralize all your tools, information and processes. Great UX!
Notion is a fancy Notes.app. It's great for basic collaboration of documents and all of the added templates really allow Notion to be a great internal wiki.
The versatility, I use Notion for personal, freelance business and planning startups.
Its fun to use. As a result, getting teammates to adopt it has been easy. Even people who didn't habitually document stuff earlier now use Notion.
Notion is the ultimate Note taking app, you can rearrange all your notes in pages and sub-pages which create with the time a massive personal Wiki.
Also you can use it for you to do, as you know to-do and notes are often related having everything in the same place is game changer.
Tables - the multiple views, ability to embed a table in multiple documents, conditionals and calculations.
Easy to use. Everyone even without much technology background can write things .
Very flexible and allows you to set up complex systems that works for the exact situation you need it for.
The modularity and the ability to turn the same entity into a post, or a table row, or even a Kannan card if you like
Versatile note-document for all teams, with lightweight tables and database-ish for better organization.
The shortcuts. As an ex-banker, I don't ever want to touch my mouse.
Ease of use, being able to do multiple things in once place versus too many things all over the place.
Notion is probably the best note-taking product the world has seen thus far. It's a good example of quality beating the competition (Evernote/OneNote).
Mixing docs, tables, to-do lists, and rich interlinking in single docs.
Page based custom database enables me to create exactly what I need. I have an awesome todo database with exactly the right columns and all my knowledge is stored neatly in pages that are linked to the right ticket. It’s a very sleek design.
Notion does a really good job of being a team collaborative wiki. It's flexible enough to use in "single-player mode" and still get enough value that it's worth the overhead. That means that people don't push out of notion and do their draft/authoring elsewhere as much, so your team ultimately ends up documenting and using more ideas.
Notion has a lot of flexibility, which is great. It's a combination of note-taking + light database + light task/project management.
The interface is extremely user friendly, making it easy to share with clients.
the ease of embedding pages directly within notes and embedding references to other notes
I use Notion to manage my investor database but also as my Sales CRM. My startup's user manual and API docs are hosted there and I write up our blog posts there.
I love how simple and clean the entire app is and how its use of emojis and cover art somehow inspires you to keep taking more notes!
Things I dig about Notion -
Embeddable pages. I love it. I have got everything scoped out on one huge document and it's not really that big with pages embedded inside of it.
The clean design - I never felt it before but Medium was too minimalistic and Google docs now just seem overblown for my basic needs.
Emoji support - I mean come on, it looks awesome
The bundling of lists, tables, charts, tasks, notes, light-weight databases, forms, and in a way not really thought of inside one product before is amazing. I'm currently building a product for a friends remote company, and Notion has become the foundations, almost the knowledge infa, of the whole business.
The ability to create ad hoc databases with various views.
Flexibility of form factors for content that can be created
Templates! After a few months of using notion, I realized that 70% of my writing there could fit within the confines of a template. Creating good templates is well-worth the time investment. My workflow is nice and steamlined now.
Notion does two things very well:
1) Typographic hierarchy & readability: Even with a minimal set of styling options, most Notion documents look and read great.
2) With the ability to nest content of any types, Notion lets you create your own taxonomy for your documents. That puts it way ahead of most other "Finder/Explorer" style interfaces which is just a dump of files.
These two features makes it worth it.
In all honesty, their table, kanban and gallery views are quite subpar.
Three major considerations I have been using to evaluate the plethora of options available: 1. Effortless/non-intrusive: It shouldn't feel like a video call 2. Price: As this app would be complime...
