Abstract

  • Large teams with dedicated design operations support
  • UX managers that want a facilitated workflow for their teams
  • Disciplined teams of individual contributors that want to adopt a process in their UI workflow
  • Cross-discipline teams that want a central collaboration space for reviewing and critiquing UI artifacts
  • If your files are named "FOR-REALS_FINAL_FINAL_FINAL_Super-Important-Project (copy).sketch"
  • If you're managing multiple pattern libraries

Notion

  • Turning a basic spreadsheet (I have countless of those scattered around when researching subjects) into a database with views and filters, in a clean layout.
  • Embedding interactive tables inside a document (no duplication of information required)
  • Clean and friendly minimalistic styling
  • No additional steps required: everything you write is "live". You only have to decide whether to make a doc public or not

Pros

Abstract

  • Versioning for desginers
  • Collaboration between team members
Christopher Fritz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Notion

  • Team Collaboration. In Notion's software is the ability to see precisely who is working on a project and where. This eliminates any confusion when on calls or when working on the same project simultaneously. It is easy to tag co-workers to precise moments and build conversation streams.
  • Text Coding. When transitioning text from our Notion ideation and drafting boards to our website backends, the coding holds on all of the text.
  • Organization. Whether it's utilizing a "pin board" set up or nestling pages within pages, it is possible to keep everything organized and easy to find for every member of your team.

Cons

Abstract

  • Asset exports are not as great as Zeplin and others.
  • Filtering within files.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Notion

  • The search in Notion leaves something to be desired. It can be hard to find a page unless you know exactly what it is titled.
  • The sidebar and groupings of pages on the side bar can be a bit tricky to navigate.

Usability

Abstract

Abstract 7.0
Based on 1 answer
Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Support Rating

Abstract

Abstract 8.4
Based on 5 answers
Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

Alternatives Considered

Abstract

I purchased and administer Abstract. It was requested by our design department who evaluated it.
Christopher Fritz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Notion

The other competitors all offer valuable content management tools however Notion exceeds expectations when it comes to ease of use, accessibly, versioning, structuring, integrations, and the list goes on. I have used several different tools during my career in the tech industry and Notion is without a doubt the frontrunner when it comes to providing value.

Return on Investment

Abstract

  • Single source of truth for the team.
  • Could quickly get expensive with corporate accounts.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Notion

  • I have spent a bit of time trying to get some table functions to work, and in some cases, never figured it out.
  • Being able to quickly find a specific note.
  • Having a project management system that will automatically reorder tasks based on status, priority, etc. has been positive.
