Pros: It's easy to use, but still INSANELY rich in features.

It allows you to create custom databases, and display them in different places and different ways, very easily, all with point and click interfaces.

You can use it to set up a simple todo list, or you can make an extremely awesome company Intranet/Internal CRM or CMS from it.

It's like being able to make your own apps with zero programming needed.

If you like Evernote, this is that on steroids, and designed better too.

Cons: Almost every major thing I can think of is already being done well. The one thing it really needs, which I know is already on the horizon, is a public API for integrations. Once that is possible the possibilities with this app will be truly endless.

One more small nitpick that comes to mind is being able to make links (to other pages, databases, etc) be a little bigger or have a thumbnail version that shows the picture (sort of how like gallery items show up).

Overall: I've been using software for my entire life. I have extensively used every major OS, and I was one of the first people to own an iPhone with the App Store on it. In my opinion, this is the most meaningful and useful piece of software ever written. I'm not exaggerating, this software has more potential than anything I've ever used. You can seriously organize your life, business, and hobbies with this so easily. It's like having a $30,000 website custom developed for you in an afternoon. But better because you actually understand it!

Pros: I love how quick it is to add content into Notion. The interface is minimal but functional, and the end result of content you create is very manageable and readable.

The ability to create a database with custom Kanban and Calendar views is pretty amazing and useful when trying to get an overview of a project status in various areas.

Cons: Notion databases (tables) lack any sort of ID to maintain the order you initially create a table in. If you've made a massive table in a specific order and then you choose to make a custom view of that table or link it somewhere else in Notion, all your hard work organising the table will be gone and it will display in a random order. This can be quite annoying, and has been reported to support with no solution in place yet.

Overall: Notion has been great in our business to build up a single source of truth thats easy to edit and collaborate with. We tried this in Confluence, but clunky interface and issues with saving got in the way. Notion is quick and easy to use without the clutter of unnecessary features.

Pros: - We're using Notion for so many things -- everything from technical product documentation, to managing user research pipelines, hiring pipelines, to project management.

- Love how easy it is to mix different blocks -- the tables have been game changing for us

- Love the small, delightful features like dark mode, ability to use different colors, icons/photography

Cons: - I think the tables would ideally be more robust -- for example, we're still hosting dashboards in Airtable because they have a really great CSV upload feature, whereas notion doesn't

- Need better track changes capability. I still have to use Google Docs for copywriting because it's too difficult in Notion to track changes & comments

Pros: I love how easy notion is to use and genuinely enjoy the overall experience of using it. Notion makes organizing notes extremely easy, and has a large selection of templates for displaying/organizing notes in a way that best communicates the ideas being recorded. It's extremely easy for new users to pick up which makes it even more valuable to use.

Cons: Pricing and very limited freemium model. While it's an excellent software, many other software that could fall in a similar genre usually offers much more in the free version while still adding compelling paid features.

Overall: Notion makes note taking, meeting minutes, process flows and many other record keeping and tracking functions very simple. What I love most about Notion is that whenever I come across something I think I should be able to do Notion can almost always do it. Whether its embedding google docs or tables, linking between pages, creating a trello-like board/process flow Notion is extremely versatile.

Notion also has a lot of shortcuts that make it extremely easy to use and typing back slash into a page allows you to do a lot of things without even having to move a mouse, which allows the note-taking to be more fluid and allows you to focus on your task rather than formatting etc.

Notion is so powerful!

Pros: Notion has become the most important place to store business information from company handbook, to projects, to personal notes, to business information, to spreadsheets and Kanban boards.

It is THAT flexible!

Cons: Since we use it for everything at work, it can sometimes be difficult to find the right information. Another improvement would be better/faster sync and offline support on the iOS mobile apps.

Pros: Notion has been labelled as "the app to watch in 2018," and I can understand why.

It's essentially note-taking on steroids and, in fact, I'm using it right now. I keep all of my notes in Notion (and have moved on from Google Keep, and other note taking software) because of the advanced features that exist with this software.

I haven't even tried all of the features or tools yet (there's almost too many)!

The app itself is very innovative and remains clean and customizable all around. It's also lightning-fast, which is surprising considering the functionality.

I now record some of the data that I would otherwise keep in Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets here in Notion now.

Cons: It can be a little confusing at first.

Thankfully, I had the patience to stick with it and learn the benefits of Notion. It's truly one of those apps that the more you stick with it and use it, you'll learn more and eventually unlock more potential.

Pros: I like that Notion allows me to easily create a hierarchy between my pages. The simplicity to take notes is astonishing and being able to put all kind of document types in it is a great advantage. Im a big fan of the drag and drop.

Cons: Sometimes it may be a little annoying when trying to delete only a line of text and the whole block is deleted. This happens when you have indented the following lines.

Overall: Although notion allows you to create multiple type of pages (CRM, Sheets, notes, etc..) I'm only using the notes feature. It's been great so far, but I'm only using the free plan at the moment and I don't plan on upgrading.

The ability to create templates makes project management a breeze. Notion is a real deal note-taking/project management/personal productivity app. Great Evernote or Trello replacement.

Cons: The mobile apps are a little slow to load, but the vast functionality of the app outweighs any small drawback.

Pros: I love the flexibility of the tool, it integrates lots of project management related "widgets" that allows you to have the perfect management system for almost any kind of project, task, activity you need to track. Not only that; it actually organizes all these different pages in a way that you'll always be a click away for what you're looking for.

Cons: I hate the fact that It doesn't accept Paypal as a method of payment for the monthly subscription (They basically give away about 6 free months of the lowest premium plan so is not that big of a con)

Overall: As a young freelance UI/UX Designer, I often got lost in the number of tasks, information, reminders, and checklists I needed to check frequently to make sure I was achieving my goals. I've tried MANY Project management and organization tools but no other has an easier and effective system to organize and manage my entire life in a single screen.

Pros: Overall it is a great way for all our departments to share information including SaaS metrics, marketing lead gen, sales numbers, product development quality and backlog concerns. Very easy to use. Great support.

Cons: Still waiting on a couple of features like lists (tables) but time based tooling works great.

Overall: I was looking for a way to stop the spreadsheet flinging madness amongst department heads. Notion came about just at the right time. We use their API and user interface to enter the data we want to track, produce reports to share and look for trends. The Notion have been super responsive with our feature requests or problems. Highly recommended.

Recommendations to other buyers: Your mileage may vary but I have only seen consistent improvements being released steadily over the last year so I see it only getting better.

Pros: Ability to do everything in 1 software - really everything. It's super easy to use. I was concerned it would take a while to understand all it's functions, but it's super intuitive and flows exactly how you would like it to. It's easy to add new pages, sections, to do lists, find items, and more. I also appreciate that it has some built in templates.

Cons: For some things - like CRM, team task management, project management, shared docs - I still like the programs I use (asana, google docs, and affinity) because my whole team is already synced up on those, and the fact that they are purpose built for those tasks I think still does have some merit. They have more features as well - even though they may be a bit less intuitive and not all in one place, I'm not convinced yet to move everything over.

Overall: I heard about Notion from a colleague who knows all software so I thought it was worth a try. After a few minutes, I understand that Notion was a bit different than other programs - it really tries to tackle everything from technical notes, to do lists, cooking recipes and more. But somehow, it seems to work (so far). I've been using it to organize my personal life (taking some things I used to do in evernote) and testing it out for business as well.

Pros: We used to use Pivotal Tracker on my team which is so flexible and robust. A good software itself.

On the other hand, Notion allows for more insight [Pivotal Tracker has this too and was one of the USP's ] across the team and tools you use, providing a single point of reference for all your team data.

Cons: The result of this data-centric approach to representing data and the flow of the app itself is the most interesting idea of the app. The tracker's analytics might give you a good idea of how long it really takes to fix a bug but It is not capturing how long that bug went through Zendesk, let's say, before being captured in the tracker.

Those are data points that need to be captured too. But it doesn't. And so whatever data we have is a half baked data.

Pros: Notion is highly customizable, rich in features, and great for individual and business use. I was having struggles with Evernote and began looking for a better note taking software. Notion imported my data from Wvernote easily and it was all considered free storage. After two weeks I loved the experience and signed up for a year membership, which was about half off after all the credits you can easily get. Definitely worth checking out purely for the databases.

Cons: Notion could certainly use some additional features, as it lacks in a few areas, especially when it comes to formulas. However, I am confident they'll get there as they are a growing company and release updates.

Pros: My goodness, the endless amount of customization available. It can basically do anything you want. We have moved over a ton of project management documentation from our server to Notion so that everything is in one place, no matter where we are. Love the visual style, and amount of tweaking you can do so that Notion can work for you. It's a very free-form project management solution.

Cons: The weird half-page offset is a little odd, but it can be disabled. Wish it had some more templates for common productivity tools, nothing that can't be added in the future though.

Overall: CRM, Task lists, accounting, project management, equipment lists, and more.

Pros: Notion has a lot of features, and thus can be used as a todo app, knowledge database, note-taking app and as other things - which can ease the friction between all these apps and enhance communication inside a team.

Cons: The pricing scheme isn't great - the free plan is great but the attachment limit of 5MB is too small, and the cost per month for team members is way too steep. I always reasonate wrt to solutions like G Suite and MS Office, which are priced monthly for way more software. Of course they have other means of financing but still.

Overall: Great way of organizing oneself and a team.

Comments: I've used a number of data & analytics tools in a few different industry (policy, investment banking). None of them were as easy to get started with or helped pull the most relevant information as Notion. Even on our team of 5, the team polling feature changed the way our team was able to collaborate and make decisions about the most important metrics that run our business. We were also able to publicize these metrics to a more broad group of people in a concise, valuable, and beautiful way. We're planning to expand our use of the product going forward.

Cons: It'd be nice to have more automation inside workspaces. ie, this block relies on info for this block and so on.

Pros: Makes collaborating and sharing all team information in a single space very easy. Similar to others but still different enough to be interesting.

Cons: I am not a fan of the layout or the way it looks. It is a bit tedious to figure out at first and if you aren't on a desktop, the mobile version is not so user friendly.

Overall: It's great for what it is but I think it's not as bright and interesting as some of the other apps/systems out there.

Pros: I enjoy being able to have all my "lists" with me all the time since they are on my phone. Also, they have good customer relations.

Cons: It has many bugs and only elementary functionality.

Overall: I used to make lists of things that needed to be accomplished or things I needed to purchase, but I never remembered to take the lists with me. Now, I put the lists into my Notion app, and no matter where I am, there are my lists.

Looking forward to using real data to make decisions amongst our internal teams!

Comments: We've not yet adopted Notion as fully as it could be but it already gives us a great place to store historical data from several sources. And the team behind it is spot on, very responsive to issue or feature requests. They have given me confidence that this service will only get better.

Pros: Clean design. Powerful building blocks allow you to create any metric you can dream up.

Cons: Though the interface is simple, often the resulting metrics are not. Definitely need more starting templates to build on.

Overall: I evaluated Notion for an extended period of time earlier this year. I was very impressed with the power that it gave me for generating all types of metrics. It was so powerful that it was actually a bit daunting! Their support was great whenever I had questions, but I feel like I need more help getting started with some meaningful metrics. I intend to deep dive into their School of Little Data course and get back into Notion, specifically around their JIRA integration!

Pros: Ease of use in terms of functionality, and easy on the eyes in design. Perfect for collecting information about a project and sharing it with a team. Feels like a text document with all the goodness of a webapp mixed in.

Cons: I kept feeling like there should be a reminder (alarm) system built in, which would ping my phone during a given time. But it would seem their schedule feature works like a calendar or to-do list, not an alarm clock.

Overall: Quickly add & edit project details across all platforms. I not only outlined a complex project, but I also created a more simple list of travel details for a conference I was to attend across the country. It feels "light" easy to add, edit, and yet solid enough to outline a complete project with deliverables.

Pros: I like very much the clean dashboard to manage the software. Is intuitive, a basic feature to learn to use features fast.That means my teammates apply fast the software.

Cons: I think that the software has to allow more languages than english. Now I think it could be easy to apply it.
