When I stumbled across Notion a few months ago it instantly clicked with me. But lots of “shiny objects” do that to me. 😂 So I’ve held off mentioning much about Notion for a while until I was sure it’s a tool that could really help you.
Notion.so is a light-weight tool that aims to try and replace the clutter of documents, policies, files and links you have on your computer, in Google Drive, in spreadsheets and scattered through the office. And to be honest, I love it.
To be fair, I’ve used Evernote for years (in fact I’m one of the Australian Evernote Community Leaders) and EN works great at storing lots of notes and documents.
But here’s a few things that Notion does really well:
📌 It’s really easy to use. This might sound like a no-brainer but there are some tools that have a steep learning curve and some that don’t. I think you’ll find Notion easy to use the moment you open it up.
📌 Integrated databases. OMG. If you use spreadsheets (like Google Sheets) or databases (like Airtable) in your buisness then you’ll realise how convenient it is to have your databases in the same tool as your notes.
📌 If you work in a team, then you can easily assign tasks and have discussions (comments) directly within your documents.
📌 And so much more…
If you’re using Google Sites or similar for your own intranet, or you want to just start getting all your notes in a single location, then Notion might be just what you’re after.
Of course, if you’re sitting there and thinking “hmmm, but how does it work?”, or “can it do XYZ?” just pop a comment below. I’d love to help you out.
