What is Notion?

Notion blends everyday work tools into one. Use cases might include a product roadmap, a company wiki, meeting notes, and other use cases.

With Notion, they're all in one place, and customizable to meet the needs of any workflow. It is designed to be a workspace for teams, or entire companies. The goal with Notion is to make it possible for everyone to shape their tools to suit the use case.

Notion features:
  • Web, desktop, & mobile apps
  • 40+ block content types
  • 50+ starter templates
  • Wikis, docs, & notes
  • Databases with rich property types
  • Table, list, calendar, kanban board, gallery, & timeline views

Notion can be pre-configured with a wide array of templates to meet various use cases. Many templates are free, and others are available for a one-time fee. Notion can also be customized by hand using a drag-and-drop workflow builder. Everything appearing on a Notion page is a block. These blocks allow users to add various kinds of content, like text blocks, checklists, graphs, etc., without needing to code.

Notion is a hub for asynchronous communication. Collaborative docs make everything go faster. Notion helps users to never miss a message, always know what's next, and edit docs without stepping on each other's toes.

Notion can be tried free, and is available on a perpetually free plan for personal use. The Notion Enterprise plan includes additional security and access features (e.g. user provisioning, audit log, SAML SSO, unlimited version history), as well as a dedicated customer success manager for entities with more than 100 seats.

When we talk about Notion, I love to use the book analogy. Notion is like a page that is easy to manage thanks to the block content. We can arrange those blocks based on our needs, and also, we can have a full search across other pages.<br><br>We basically use it for our internal documentation, like the HR handbook, to explain how the recruitment and onboarding process goes and technical documentation about our software development process. But when you're familiar with the <a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollownoopener">Database block Type</a>, you can turn Notion into anything. For example, some departments use Notion as task management because the database block type can be viewed using Kanban, Calendar, or Timeline view. You can always look for inspiration on how to use Notion from their <a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollownoopener">Template Gallery</a>.<br><br>Another cool feature is the sharing options. You can easily manage other users to view only, comment, or edit on specific pages.
  • "Content Block" based
  • A lot of content block type
  • Easy to customized
  • Cross-Platform: Web, Desktop, Mac, Mobile
  • Easy to manage sharing access
  • Mobile app needs UX improvement
  • The search function takes time if you have a lot of pages
  • Some people might think it's too technical and hard to getting used to it
  • Automation and API still in beta
If you're looking for an app to take notes, documentation, handbook, then the answer is yes, Notion suits you well. But if you need to extend this functionality using automation or custom API, you need to wait a little longer as Notion API still in the beta stage.

Notion is currently being used across the majority of our Product, Research & Development, and Solutions teams. It allows us to seamlessly create, manage, and store multiple different forms of content specific to each department in one easily accessible location. Prior to Notion we used to have several privately owned instances of knowledgebase repositories, notes, Google Docs/Sheets, etc. that were impossible to query for the information we needed.
  • Content organization
  • Team dictation and collaboration
  • Integrations to external platforms
  • Positioning of content blocks
  • Tutorials and training videos
  • Automation and workflows
There are a plethora of scenarios which Notion is well suited but the few that come to mind immediately are structured organization of content, assigning roles and permissions per user, and integrations to external platforms within your business tech stack. Notion is designed to be a work-flow management nor visualization tool, such as Miro, but where it excels is through creating a centralized/unified environment to store and structure content.

Notion is a powerful tool that allows us, in a single access point, to manage all aspects of the execution of each project that we carry out with our staff, with the aim of increasing efficiency and delivering the product in the time offered to our customers. In Notion, all project work is managed interactively, with effective schedule organization for deliverables, saving us time and keeping budget on schedule.
  • The organization of human resources that works on multiple projects simultaneously.
  • The mechanisms offered at the 'views' level to filter the tasks to be done for each user of the project.
  • The assignment of permissions to indicate who can be notified and interact with a specific project.
  • Notifications about the delay in activities, without being very invasive.
  • 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.
Notion is effective when we need to increase efficiency in work teams that make daily implementations in multiple companies, since it facilitates the follow-up of each person, regardless of how many projects they participate in.It also allows each field engineer to report progress, issues and attach supporting documentation for evidence.

Notion is the most flexible project management/note taking do it all program I have used. It combines note-taking with the ability to assign tasks, build out project management, and use some excel format formulas all in one application. It is truly a well-thought-out flexible platform. They keep adding new features which make the product even more robust.
  • Project management
  • Knowledge base/wiki
  • Note taking
  • Other app integrations
We leverage Notion as a knowledge base which has really helped with onboarding for our company as well as a note-taking app that allows us to easily share with fellow coworkers. I leverage it in marketing as a project management tool for our content. It easily allows us to gather research, organize it and then write our content, all in Notion all while helping us keep track of where every piece of content is in the process.

Notion is a versatile and convenient software for note taking and general organization. In my company we've used it to implement a Kanban methodology and keep track of different meetings in the week, plus having a centralized point to access important documentation that is presented better here than in a word document.

  • All device sync: whether you use Notion on your laptop or on your phone, the content you create is automatically updated and available on all devices.
  • Notion API: The software distributes documentation to connect your Notion content via an API to other services you might use.
  • Tutorials and templates: Notion comes with default templates that you can use to create pages suited to certain needs. The Notion webpage also has different tutorials to become a power user easily and quick.

  • Free use limit: Notion allows users limited access to premium features by counting the "blocks" used by the user. The problem is that there isn't a clear definition of what are "blocks" and how are they measured.
  • Random freezes: When changing between Notion and other apps on my laptop, it would freeze and show a blank screen for a couple of seconds to a minute.
  • Portable between devices
  • Extensive tutorials and documentation
  • Free templates for different use cases
  • Easy to use with a team
  • Random freezes while changing apps
  • Confusing measurement of free use of premium features by "blocks"
  • Uses OS emojis (MacOS's look better than windows but can't choose which to use)
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 major business problem Notion addresses are being able to communicate information and resource lists to our external members/students in an efficient and visually-appealing manner. Another major business problem is being able to communicate and amass other information to be used internally. All this can be done in Notion without building a website. Notion is used almost every day by our coworkers and members.
  • Creating view-only link.
  • Co-editing.
  • Various views for data sources.
  • Changing grid shapes.
  • More search function versatility - being able to search a keyword and find it even in grids, lists, etc.
  • Better connections between databases.
Notion is great for compiling shareable lists and resources for our audiences, in an easy-to-use and clear manner. Notion is less appropriate for creating extensive databases and organizing videos.

We use it for working in projects where we all need to collaborate and sync in real time with a global team. It helps us coordinate efforts and assign work to each member while also tracking progress and goal setting. We are a 30 person multidisciplinary organization and develop technology solutions for small and medium enterprises.
  • Page creation
  • Content edition
  • Collaboration
  • Tutorials
  • Intuitiveness
  • Edition Tracking
It is very well suited for teams that want to sync up on ongoing projects and need to share information in real time while also working on different parts of the projects they are assigned to. It is less appropriate for teams that work in silos or that don't collaborate as much.

My org uses Notion as a collective knowledge-base, wiki, and brainstorming tool. Each dept keeps track of their ways of working as well as project tracking, interview tracking, and product specs. It's a very flexible, collaborative workspace-- you can use it as a kanban board, a regular to-do list. You can embed documents, Figma files, YouTube videos and other multi-media content to share your ideas.
  • Kanban
  • Embedded media
  • Flexible digital workspace
  • slash brings up a command so you can't type anything with a slash in it
  • so many options available right within the line you're writing on -- sometimes it feels like you're driving with too many speed bumps
Brainstorming ideas with your team, keeping notes as an archive of shared knowledge.

Notion is a great tool to save and organize all important information about work processes & material, company information, etc. It solves the issue of having a million different files, saved in different places and employees accessing outdated information or work materials. Notion is the place to go if you need more information about a certain topic if you look for a specific file or want to learn more about a work process. We use it in our company by creating different workspaces for each team or topic, giving access to those to who it is relevant.
  • Quick find
  • Very simple and easy to use.
  • Anyone can comment and interact on articles.
  • Missing functionality.
  • Sometimes it's hard to find the right article.
Notion is well suited to eliminate million-word documents, different excel sheets, or PowerPoint presentations with different information on them. It's great to save everything relevant at the same place and update the information directly there. It is important someone is actively in charge to actually update the info, so it's accurate and not everyone can just edit. It's a pretty straightforward tool with a positive impact on the organization of information but not much more.

Sometimes there is an overwhelming amount of projects running at the same time, Notion has helped me and my team get a clear view of all projects we have on going, have flexible views, get details on pending tasks and know who is doing what.
  • Flexible views
  • Great design
  • Assign owners
  • Zoom in into details as you need
  • Introduction to the tool (I had to watch a few videos to learn)
  • Sharing dashboards with others
Great for complex project management and task tracking. I don’t see that it has been very useful for simple daily to do’s or projects, because it requires a lot of work to introduce to the tool, which is definitely worth it if you want to take full advantage of the tool.

Notion is a great tool to organize your notes, tasks, and information. Notion can be used as both a personal and business task management and collaboration application, internal webpages and knowledge bases can also be created with the help of Notion, which is great in task management and can be shared with all the team members using the collaboration tools.
  • Templates are available for different tasks like webpages, roadmap, planners, etc.
  • Multi-device availability - Works on web, mobile, Mac, and PC.
  • Easy to understand interface for new users.
  • Limited Integration facility - Currently it only integrates with Evernote, but more integrations are needed.
  • Custom domain connection availability for webpages created using Notion.
Notion is well suited for scenarios like:
Personal Notetaking, Project Management, Product Roadmaps, Creating web pages (Like Resumes, Blogs, etc.), Roadmaps, Workflows, Notes, Minutes of Meeting, Project Planning, Personal Planning, Journals, Blog Posts, and so much more.
Notion has a library of free and paid templates which can help in getting started quickly and working on any of the use-case scenario.

2 years ago I started using Notion to structure my personal notes and materials. However, I now use it already in working processes with colleagues as an inner wiki, if we are free in the choice of instruments. This is an excellent tool for creating a related database with fields that can be expanded at any time.
  • Internal Wiki
  • Expandable database
  • Personal Knowledge base
  • Project management with deadlines is still need to be improved
  • No milestones management
If you need in an hour or two to make the knowledge base with the structure that can be changed on the fly, then Notion is the perfect tool. If you want to conduct projects on Agile methodology - please select a specialized tool for this.

Notion helps [me] and my colleagues track meeting notes, spreadsheets, events, and other documents in a comprehensive one-screen platform. It's been much more coherent to manage projects and efforts than Google Docs since it has a nice sidebar directory and easy-to-organize sections. Anyone can use Notion very quickly, there isn't a large effort needed to train or learn about it, it's usable out of the box for any teammate at any level.
  • Organize
  • Display Information
  • Easy to Use
  • Cross-Team syncing
  • Locking documents or spaces
  • More video support
Notion is well suited for efforts ranging from taking notes for meetings or making kanban-like project boards tracking the progress of various efforts. I love making tables or spreadsheets in Notion, they have made it so easy! Where I feel like I am fussing with features to make tables elsewhere, it is super easy in Notion. Saves me time and makes information easier for other teammates to read.

We use Notion for a variety of purposes. Our company OKRs, personal OKRs, project management, directory, employee handbook, requesting days off, etc. It's our home base for all aspects of our company. Notion is really helpful for storing all of our HR-related items and is a great place for us to host things like time-off requests.
  • Project management
  • Employee handbook
  • Organized
  • A little confusing to use at first
  • A little hard to navigate without a tutorial
  • I wish there was a way that completed tasks would automatically archive
Very well suited for a large company that has a lot going on. It helps to segment parts of your company and teams and to track what's going on. It's well suited for a company that has many moving pieces because it allows a company to focus and organize OKRs and not get lost in the mundane. I don't think it's well suited for a smaller business (less than 10 people).

I think it is only used in my department, not sure about the entire organization. We use it as a place to collaborate and store files. It has a lot of features that make it useful for project management and planning. Personally, I use it to store my notes and compile my research for others to access.
  • Clean interface
  • Tables/databases have nice functions
  • Multi-purpose
  • There is a learning curve since there are a lot of capabilities
  • Would like more spreadsheet functions
  • More info/ideas on how to use new features
It is well suited in situations where group work is required because it is a one access point that can keep track of tasks and info. It's very easy to collaborate there because of the comments feature. Although it has a database feature, it wouldn't be appropriate for handling large datasets - it's best for simple spreadsheets.

Usually Notion is used as a personal tool for documentation, todo lists, organize each one activities, some of my colleagues use it for keep notes of a meeting with a client or a solution review for a new feature on the product we are working.
  • Scalable
  • Reachable for everyone
  • Light
  • Modern UI
  • It could have a way to personalize components like do a percentage bar on a table or calendar.
  • Integrate better different componentes, like i want to link my task to my calendar so i can sincronize them
  • It could have a script componente like google sheets, on formula properties.
I think notion brings a tool that you can use for everything, from a personal note, organization folders, calendars to client meetings, kanban board and team setup.
I personally use for studies, to plan my activities during my day-to-day, i think it's the first tool that really helps me be organized and stop procastinate on hobies or personal projects that i want to build.

I came aware of Notion when preparing for a complete update of my course material as a university guest professor. In this capacity, I share from experience as consultant in the construction industry and bring this into the broader subject of "Building Information Modelling" (BIM). As the previous course has evolved from a Bachelor to a Master's Course, I needed to rethink the whole course content and structure.

While I had been planning to write a course text, I was initially reluctant on how to organise and publish it. Having had experience with traditional documents mostly (Word and LaTeX), those were the first attempts, but as the main concept of BIM is situation in digital transformation of the industry, I felt I could do better.

After a series of tests with a variety of dedicated writing tools (e.g., Scrivener), a blog-oriented writer tool (MacJournal) and some preliminary tests with Markdown platforms (Gitbook, Docsify, ...), I discovered Notion. And it had the incredible balance just right between an accessible Markdown-style writing environment, an open flexible structure (pages in pages) and integrated tables with database behaviour, this fit really well.

So its main use for me are in the form of a course (wiki-style) and as knowledge management. Being able to embed interactive content and having no barrier between writing and online publishing, I decided to adopt Notion for this purpose.
  • Flexible document organisation (everything is a page, pages can have subpages)
  • Embedded tables which act as databases (tables with relations, filters and views)
  • Simple markdown structuring
  • Direct online sharing (no separate publication steps)
  • Free Personal Pro plan for academic users
  • The depth of the formulas is a bit limited (e.g., when compared to Coda)
  • No way to group rows in a Table
  • eBook export or full publishing workflows are not available (but workaround seem to exist)
  • 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

We use Notion as a platform to manage content from ideation to draft to editing to publication. We are a team of writers, editors, and content managers that are creating marketing and educational website content. Notion facilitates the content moving between each member of the team for their specific portion of the project. It operates in the way we wish Google Docs did!
  • 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.
  • Learning Curve. There is a bit of learning curve to understanding how the pages can be built to your needs, especially when it comes to table creation.
  • Work History. Once an issue has been marked as "resolved," it becomes very hard to find if you need to reference something from the issue stream of conversation.
If you are generating a lot of content and working in a team environment, Notion is a clutch way to make sure that every member of the team is working on the same draft or version of your document. If you are in a process chain, it also becomes quite useful being able to drag the content card from one person's to do list from another's when it becomes their responsibility.

[Notion] is currently being used by the whole company as our source of truth and wiki.
  • Notion is very easy to use and create content on. With other Wikis, you have to edit the page using widgets and never know what it will look like until you are done. With Notion you get to create in the same view that others will see when they view your page.
  • Notion is very clean and easy to read. There are a lot of different choices for how to format the content however you wold like.
  • 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.
Notion is great as a company wiki and for collaboration on work documents or memos. It is also a suitable project management tool.

Notion is not as great as a task management system.

Notion is being used in many ways in my daily workflow. Including but not limited to project tracking, research, resourcing, issue resolution and notes. It has provide a centralized workspace and dashboard for workflow items. Features such as task tracking and relational databases are a strong suite of Notion that make it a go to application.
  • Relational databases.
  • Web clipping.
  • Easy page and content formatting.
  • Embedded code pens, gists, videos and more.
  • Public API.
Project management. From project planning and ideation Notion is great collecting resources such code snippets, web bookmarks and other inspiration or mood board type elements. Assignments of sub tasks to ensure completion of major tasks. Each task can contain even more resources, notes or simply monitor progress. Similar tasks or resources can be easily referenced from any other project.

I use Notion to organize my company notes as well as ongoing project tasks. I am the sole user/department. Notion helps me to track all of my notes in one easy place.
  • General organization.
  • Easily changing a word/section into a new note for more details.
  • Creating tables with custom data functions.
  • Sometimes the data functions are difficult to get working.
  • Wish there was an option for folders to better organized.
  • Formatting does not work well when using copy/paste or exporting to another type of file or document.
Notion has many simple features, but can also be advanced as well. I think if someone was just looking for something simple and never wanted any advanced note features, Notion may be too much.

Notion is used by our product management department. We use it to document and surface research insights, track product feature discovery and delivery, communicate progress to stakeholders, and document strategies and other notes.
  • Notion is adaptable to the way your organization thinks and organizes data.
  • Notion makes sharing information with others very easy.
  • Notion allows me to keep certain things private until I'm ready to share with others.
  • Notion doesn't integrate with other services very well. It needs a public API (they've said it's coming).
  • To get the most out of it, it can be a bit of work to set up. You need a person who is passionate about it to configure things for team collaboration.
Notion is very good at allowing you to arrange data and relate different information in the way you want. You can model the way your organization works with data or projects. You can have notes, tasks, and properties that are all related to each other in one place instead of in separate systems.

We are using it within the design team as a place to collaborate, manage tasks, share knowledge and take notes. It solves our previous problem of having all sorts of things spread out across multiple platforms.
  • Robust: Notion is so nicely made and really robust to use
  • Databases: I love how Notion handles simple databases, allowing tons of flexibility of viewing and sorting
  • Mobile: The mobile app is really nice
  • More embeddable media types
  • Needs a refresh every morning
It's so open that it's good for anything, honestly. Because it's so flexible, you can use it for task management of varying complexities. Less appropriate if you need visual design control over your notes, and collaboration is really only possible with someone who also has a paid account, keeping it relatively closed off.

  • The UX/UI of the platform is so simple and intuitive that we found the training on the platform to be almost redundant. It works how you expect it to when you expect it to.
  • It is adaptable. You need to share docs on one client across the entire team, done. Do you need folders for different phases of the project? No sweat. It is adaptable to pretty much all projects we have used it for.
  • It is cumbersome in offline mode, not unusable, just slow.
  • Can't scan a note using your phone/tablet camera, only can add notes as an image.
Notion is one of those platforms that is really good at helping you close out other platforms that do some but not all that it does. One of the best things that it has done for us is allowing us to stop using so many project management platforms. The only thing that I would not use Notion for is an in house program; it is set up perfectly for agencies though.
