    Very good online option for flowcharts and other purposes; can be quite cost-effective, too, depending on how you use it.

    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

    Creately

    • Creately provides the same experience that other similar tools (i.e. Visio) provides, but presents it in a much more colorful, unique manner. The colors are vibrant, and my clients have always been impressed with the quality and feel.
    • Creately provides a lot of creative control over how your images look. I can play with the opacity and color scheme, or use what they already provide.
    • Creately also allows me to create wireframes for clients to review, whether desktop or mobile. I can create simple, easy to understand frames and concepts in minutes - they're super professional looking and ready to share.
    • I like the pricing model. Right now I can pay month-to-month, or pay a one-time fee for a year. It's also less expensive than Visio, which is very nice.

    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

    Creately

    • The transition Creately made this year to their new non-Flash platform seems to almost function like a beta release in some instances.
    • Customer support sometimes takes a while to return and the responses are not always the best or most helpful. Follow up isn't great, either.
    Mike Eisenberg | 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.

    I haven't used Creately's support. I don't know what to rate this to be honest. If there was an "N/A," I'd use that. I like products where I don't have to do a lot of research or studying to learn how to use the software. Creately allows me to jump in and go.

    Alternatives Considered

    Creately

    In terms of pricing and functionality, Creately was the clear winner at the time, although the jury is still out on Creately's new version in terms of how simple it may be to use.
    Mike Eisenberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Notion

    Notion is all things to many people, but I prefer to move some of my intense project planning out of Notion into Jira. Jira's automations and APIs are much more robust and the data tracking Jira provides is better for spring planning. Notion is extremely flexible, though, and serves as a kind of a knowledge base for ideas, projects, and conversations we need to pull out of Slack.

    Return on Investment

    Creately

    • Creately is less expensive and dare I say more professional looking than Visio. It looks great at a fraction of the price.
    • Creately allows me to share ideas and processes with my clients. It shows that I understand their business processes, and increases their trust in my abilities to work with them.
    Richard Crane | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Notion

    • Being able to have insight into personal OKRs feeding into companywide OKRs
    • Creating a home base for all of our different departments' internal documents for items where Google Drive doesn't make sense to house them
    • It's super great to have my task list to keep myself moving forward to my OKRs
