We use Notion across our startup for all meeting minutes, note taking, company info, process docs etc. It helps us centralize all of our notes so that they're accessible to all of the relevant parties. We also keep steps for processes we use in Notion for new employees etc. The biggest pain it solves is to help us organize everything we need so that stuff doesn't get lost. It's also a super flexible platform so we're able to organize information in a lot of different ways.
  • Extremely flexible. It allows us to be able to organize and display information in almost any way we've needed to
  • It's extremely intuitive and easy to use. Even the shortcodes you can pick up very quickly.
  • They have a great app and a seamless experience across web app, mobile, and even desktop app if you want it.
  • They claim they want to be able to be an Airtable, Trello etc, but it's not quite there yet and even if it was it may be too much to pack into one software.
  • It's very pricey and they have a terrible trial. As great as it is, it's difficult to make the case to pay what they ask for, especially for most startups. They should definitely have a better free tier
  • Honestly not much else. I really like it.
For note taking Notion does much better than both Trello and Asana. For a business use case, it's a better note taking software than One Note, but One Note makes a lot more sense for personal use than Notion because of the price. But for actual project management, it can be too cluttered to try to use notion for all of it. Which again makes it difficult to try to pack too much into one software.
Notion is great for organizing anything meeting related. It takes the place of Google Docs in a lot of scenarios. It's much easier to open docs and navigate around than a Google Doc.

Where it isn't as good is on the project management side. They may be trying to be too many things at once even though they're doing most of the things they do do very well.
