What's a great way for collaborative internal documentation? (Canvas Alternative)

I was looking for a product for our team to collaborate on notes, knowledge, code samples, processes etc. I came across Canvas (which is shutting down :( ) which looks perfect, but can't really find any other application coming close to their space. Preferably: - Simple elegant note taking (markdown support) - Collaboration - Folders/tagging etc.

    Notion 1.0 Web + Mac App

    Docs, wikis, tasks – a minimal & unified workspace for teams

    We recently switched to Notion and we’re loving it. It’s a spiritual successor to Hackpad but they handle document hierarchy / navigation much better.

      Overall, Notion is like a bunch of widgets and management apps combined into one awesome package. I've been using it for several months now, and it works really well. It's most useful for team projects, where you can make an entire directory of pages for the different types of tasks you need to handle, and keep all progress and information synced into one app.

      Being able to move content blocks and pages around makes it very easy to organize, and the comment feature makes it easy to start a new thread to discuss a topic. Integration is also great, since I can embed code, videos, and even Google Drive documents. You can also customize the look and feel of pages (I love being able to set icons and header images for each page) to make them easily recognizable, and create complex layouts. There is a huge list of features that makes it possible to do almost anything you would want to do in a management/organization app.

      It's still improving, and they have a list of new features coming soon (the one I'm excited for is being able to assign tasks to people). There's an iOS app beta (that doesn't work on my device currently). There are a few minor bugs that I come across, but it's nothing that distracts you from using it. It's a solid app that I'll continue to use for both group and individual projects.

      I actually was just so sick of confluence and was asking someone at #Productboard about what they use and they told me about this. It's just pretty fun to use. Also the free trial is helpful if you're a small startup.

      This app is simply amazing! I have been using this as my replacement to Google Spreadsheets. The features inside of this amazing service are endless. If you have lots of data and want to organize it efficiently, this is the app for you :)

      We started using Airtable to manage our content projects at work. After using it for a month, I decided I liked it so much that I signed up for Zapier and Airtable to manage my personal projects as well. It has completely changed everything.

    Visual task management with chat and performance analytics.

    Two months ago, I was also looking for a product for our team to collaborate on notes, knowledge, multiple projects, etc... I came across Asana, Canva, Trello, TeamworkPM, Basecamp, Slack, WorkZone, ProofHub…. I have tried them all… They all have the tendency to get messy especially with all the file uploads. If you are looking for an app or a website that can make things clearer and less messy then I recommend you Taskworld, a project management software with a pragmatic approach. You can even require an online demo to get the best out of this app for your first steps. So far, I have worked on a number of projects and I have found Taskworld practical and very helpful in making my company successful - by allowing a number of very different projects to be conducted at the same time. I specially appreciate the design, timelines, and the chat, tagging, unlike other apps, Taskworld chat is completely built-in. By allowing a number of very different projects to be conducted at the same time, Taskworld has proven effective also for conservative groups where change is perceived as a threat or a risk, instead of an opportunity. ➜ the ease to create tasks, assign them and set due dates ➜ the colored labels and tags add clarity ➜ the built-in enterprise messaging system ➜ the @mentions to get someone’s attention (folders/tagging etc.) ➜ the calendar view ➜ accessible on all devices : computers, smartphones and tablets (iOS and Android platforms) ➜ the performance chart included ➜ the price and the 15 days free trial ➜ it’s getting popular as it’s now used by AccorHotels, Amazon, Ernst and Young, Adobe,… To sum it up – In this crowded market where we can find literally everything from To-Do list type apps to sophisticated enterprise solutions, Taskworld attempts to differentiate themselves by offering performance reports that helps the companies and the teams within them to understand how well they are doing, exactly where do they stand can and where are the further improvements required. Taskworld has had a powerful impact and significantly improved performances. www.taskworld.com Good luck!
