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.Pros:
Content blocks/pages organize content easily
Shortcuts make it FAST
Collaboration is seamless with others
Customize pages for a unique lookCons:
Live editing with collaborators isn't seamless
No iOS app available (yet)
Most of the features that are missing are coming soon anyways.
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.Pros:
It's got that nice 'type-form' kind of interface thats lovely to use..
Seems to do more logical stuff than confluence.Cons:
You can't colour a bit of text, it has to be a whole block.
No gliffy diagram stuff.
I'm invested in Priority Matrix but find the UI terrible...thus the search and trial of Notion. Wunderlist is only good for grocery and Home Depot lists. And Evernote has lost it's way. This product appears to bring EVERYTHING together.Pros:
Good range of uses: 1) Tasks, 2) Project Lists, 3) Repository of text, websites, images, and other records.Cons:
No due date capability for individual items (i.e. tasks);
Excited to really dive into this app—although, it's slightly overwhelming at first.Pros:
Ability to create a variety of different content blocks & pages seamlessly across MacOS & iOS. Very customizable.Cons:
No major flaws, but am only using it for 1-2 people at the moment.
Notion where have you been all my life ???
I think Notion just eliminated *MOST* non-WWW software.
I may use Excel / Google Sheets again ... as an embedded file in my Notion !
The first truly usable wiki .. ever. Finally non-IT members of the organization can create usable, findable, content. 100% game changer.Cons:
No self hosting ?
