It's a great tool to have team members collaborate and generate brainstorming sessions. It's very interactive and the real-time approach makes it really fun. It's very interesting to sit down and have people participate in a voting session when exploring alternatives and comparing them to others. Brainstorming and collaborating are the biggest takeaways.

Notion is good for a plethora of use cases. The templates that it offers give just a few established pages for common uses but these are some of my favorites:
Kanban board: we use it a lot in my company to manage tasks and meetings Note taking: whether in a professional or academic environment, Notion is well suited to take notes of everything regardless. Software documentation: the "code" component to insert code snippets is perfect for creating tutorials and documentation for software development. Finance control: I use the "my finances" template to have a proper following of my monthly transactions, which allowed me to be more responsible with my money. Inventory management: Since I own multiple peripherals and general equipment, being able to have a portable inventory of all of it that includes their original value, warranty length and current state has been perfect to know when clean, maintain or straight up replace everything.

The different pens with colors and nib thickness allow easy explanations. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons After editing one item on a board, all other items can be dimmed, took me a few seconds to work out that I had to hit the ESC key to resolve Can't put my finger on exactly why but the minimap is a bit frustrating to use I'd really like to see options that only admins have visible but not clickable, then I'd know without asking that a given thing could be accomplished Read full review The increase in integrations with third parties will always promote the adoption of the platform in companies. Personalization with logos and corporate colors sometimes makes the difference when selecting a tool in a corporation. Having multiple functionalities for working in manufacturing companies and with devices developed by third parties encourages other companies to select Notion as their flagship tool to offer implementation packages under alliances that favor its use.

This is the where Lucidspark has some opportunity to have improvement, the learning curve can be not as intuitive as Lucidchart. The main area of improvement would be to have a similar interface as Lucidchart. For example, to scroll between the x and y axis can be difficult until the user discovers the tab on the left hand side that has the arrow and the hand. Until the user discovers that tab on the left hand side, the chart is difficult to navigate around.

It is a very accessible and wide range of tools to help kick-off any projects and brainstorming sessions. It is user-friendly in terms of content sorting and collaborative ideations. It is also loaded with good quality export options and colours for a very practical client presentation and team understanding of the content across boards.

only has the Kanban board feature and is great for task management, while Notion has a vast array of features, is easier to use, and has a more visually-appealing interface. I choose to use Notion over
due to its increased versatility and greater customization capabilities.
Read full review Return on Investment I've made a Planning Poker template in Lucid that we use for Sprint Planning, and it's made it easier to switch to Story Points and forego task breakdown and time estimation altogether. It does save time during Sprint Planning but that's less significant than the fact that developers no longer feel the need or pressure to conform to whatever random time estimate was provided. That's thanks to Story Points, not Lucid itself, but Lucid surely made Planning Poker a lot easier than it used to be. As an added bonus, it stores voting history, so we can go back during the Retrospective and review particular items of interest that we completely botched the sizing of.
