Overall Satisfaction with Notion

This is the tool that my organization uses for the bulk of our team and client communication outside of email and Slack threads. It is our note taking app that we use to help manage client meetings and keep the internal teams cognizant of what is going on and what was said in the client meetings.
  • 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.
The reason that we selected Notion is that it consolidates what we were trying to do with other platforms. We got from documents to dashboards for projects in one central area that is accessible to all applicable members of the team and give them everything they need to follow through on the project.
It connects pretty flawlessly with most of the integrations that we have. While online, merging data from different sources happens in real time. The offline mode is slower and not fully functional, of course, changes do not happen in real time while offline as well. We have not had any problems that have hindered work done to data source connectivity.
The best thing that Notion has provided our team is the ease of sharing within the team as well as segmenting who is on what projects. I have been pleasantly surprised that there have not been any issues with sharing or getting access to things like Wikis, docs, folders or assigning/completing tasks.
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.
