    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.

    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: 

    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.

    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.

I adore notion, it really is a game changer for productivity, used it for my studies and still using it for my work, great to see that I can now import all my evernote notes!

Awesome, awesome, awesome. So happy about the clipper as well. Trying hard to bore people to death about my notion obsession. Looking forward to see what you have in store for the future!

Out of the tens of apps I recommend to people on a weekly basis, Notion is the only one that people are actually excited about 100% of the time. Has nothing to do with V2.3, but it just needs to be said. Cool update by the way.

I've used Notion on and off for over a year now but struggle to find that *killer* use-case. What do you all think sets Notion apart from something like Coda, for example, which has plenty more third-party integrations?

@nasiscoe O-oh...massive fan of Notion...I scream about it from the rooftops, but because of your post, I've just discovered Coda and fell in love within 3.1 seconds...could be a gamechanger!

@nasiscoe @jwelch I've just done exactly the same!

@nasiscoe @jwelch @markpcolgan I took a look at Coda and it just seemed overwhelming, might be a bit more powerful than Notion and it looks like you can do more complex tasks but I think it has a steeper learning curve. For me Notion just has the right simplicity/power combination.

@nasiscoe @markpcolgan @nuts_on_ur_chin yep, that's the same conclusion I made after spending a few hours with it.
