Overall Satisfaction with Notion

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!

Pros

  • 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

  • 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.
  • It reduces duplicative work as everyone is literally on the same page.
  • Allows multiple stages of the production to happen simultaneously without impeding the other, i.e. content editing and photo insertion can happen simultaneously once the draft is finished.
Notion combines all of the elements that we liked and needed from the above software and put it into one package that can be run on the scale we need to manage thousands of content pieces. Being able to combine the communication of Slack or Discord, the storage of Google Drive, the organization of Todoist and Trello and then adding in the content creation abilities of Microsoft Office or Google Docs made this an easy purchase.

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.
