API would be a really great feature

Pros:

Suitable for all types of content.

Cons:

No API.

Yes!!!!!!!! I neeeeeed a read/write API for Notion!!!
I am waiting for this, too. Hopefully not too long away - even Zapier would be good at this point, which I know is on the way.

Here is a scenario - you want to plan a trip to vegas. So, you create a new Notion page for it and add a table, list, or Kanban board to keep track of tasks and start planning what you need to do beforehand like "check airfare rates', etc. You also start clipping in hotel pictures and links to their sites...you get the idea. Sounds great. But, if I use it this way (new section for each project or subject) I might have a dozen other sections and pages in Notion with other tasks or to-do's that I need to keep track of. The bad news is that as it stands now, I'd have to go hunting and know-to-look for these open items. There is no way to search across separate tables/lists/boards. Same with To-do items. Now, you can create a page with linked lists that are filtered. However, you'd have to add a new linked list on this page for any one you create elsewhere in Notion. I can't wait for them to add this task management feature - I'll switch in a heartbeat.

Pros:

Great knowledge base tool with some pretty good table functionality. Decent PM tool for the individual

Cons:

Not yet a PM solution for teams or a replacement for tracking tasks across multiple projects.

I respectfully challenge your PM solution comment. You can create relations within Notion that can link a Task table record to multiple projects in a Project table. Notion is very flexible if you take advantage of its relational database features.
I have to second @floringp in that challenge. Notion can do it, but you have to build the databases and relationships yourself. One database for Programs. One for Projects. One for Deliverables. One for Tasks. Every database has a 'Currently With' and a set of Status (selection property) tags for each phase in the house process. I handle intake via forms which get entered into another Database, and tagged in the properties to the Program, Project, Deliverable, or Task as appropriate. Checklists detail the next steps for each team member, and moving things through the system or tasking things out to individual team members is as simple as building into the database a 'People' property. So long as it's in the team's Workspace, it tags the users in their Updates panel of the next thing to do. You can take it a step farther and set up every team member with their own copy of a dashboard view where you set up filters and /Create link to existing database so that they get a list populating there of everything assigned to them currently. Then the team plays "keep away" by trying to finish their action items and give it to the next person in the chain, which is written right into the template of the job folders. You can easily do this. It just takes a little grunt work and some planning on the Process side to build out the tools and databases in the way that makes the most sense for how your team works. It doesn't force you into a pattern out-of-the-box, it just gives you the tools to be able to build out the system for what your specific team needs and is willing to use. Now, if you have an unmotivated or an older team not as digitally savvy or willing to own the whole process overall, then Notion is going to be a tough sell. But my team is younger, very digital, and test users all universally fall in love with the simplicity of the interface and immediately begin building out tools of their own for personal use, even before being introduced to the core databases of the business as a whole. I've wrangled Art Buying, Creative brainstorming, production, web dev, integrated marketing, marketing optimization, SEO, and provided a more collaborative tool than email, plus a common Meeting Notes database with relational fields so that anyone can take Meeting notes in the database by making a new entry, and just tag the project, so they show up associated with the template of the Job jackets. Yeah, it takes a little work to set up. But once set up, it should run for a while without issue. Revisit Notion, please. You missed the forest for the trees.

If there was a Github integration, we could replace our project management tools with Notion's boards feature.

Pros:

Notion makes it so easy to organize your information.

Cons:

No Github API

I second that an API would help us speed up our workflow ⏩

Pros:

We use Notion as a knowledge base. As a remote team it's truly the best ❤️

Cons:

I would love for better integration into Google Drive 😊

There might be nothing like Notion, easy to use, an enjoyment for every readers and writers. The fact that it has a lot of useful possibilities is incredible but it's making me ask if it's necessary or when will it be able to be as good as other apps. It's a wonderful replacement to Evernote, Onenote or Simplenote but not yet for TickTick, Ora.pm or Trello. Let's hope the best for them.

Pros:

The Clipper is a good idea The list view too

Cons:

Needs an improvement on the task management and notifications. Statistics would be good too.

email to card important for me

Pros:

can be use as pivot table

Cons:

where is email to card
