A powerful tool to manage and organize project, documents, activities, you name it

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I was looking for some tools to manage my freelance activity: a solution for my personal knowledge management and my projects and tasks, a time tracker for my activities and customers, etc.: I found everything, and much more, in Notion.Its flexibility and power allows to design, build, manage and adjust all your need, without the rigid structure of a (number of) database(s).It deserve the time you need to spend to explore e discover its power: you won't regret it.

Pros:

Simple yet powerful, affordable with a generous free tier, can be used to effectively manage a wide number of tasks, project, activities, content

Cons:

The real power of Notion lies under the hood: advanced relations, links and database functions need study: not a really steep learning curve, but still one that needs time and attention.

Exteremely affordable project management tool for freelancers and design agencies

4.0 2 months ago

Comments: Overall, it's a must tool for freelancers who are into designing businesses or working for multiple clients at once. I will not recommend you go for a team plan or enterprise plan until you have more team members.

Pros:

I loved their user interface where I can do anything from scribbling to creating doc task lists. Its quirky templates help me get my work done in a cool way as I am a designer and love creativity in my work. No more boring emails and assignments.One more thing is it's very affordable if you want to purchase an enterprise or team plan which exposes more team member access and a dedicated manager.

Cons:

Even if it's affordable, its paid plan doesn't have much for freelancers compared to the free plan of notion. More features make things complicated and sometimes heavy in terms of getting a quick overview.

The Best Productivity and Project Management Tool in the Market

5.0 last month New

Comments: Overall, this is one of top best tools for my personal and work productivity, product management, and digital content organizing tool. I highly appreciate Notion!

Pros:

Not only do I appreciate the design of Notion, which is clean, modern, and easy to navigate, it's a wide range of views and templates that perfectly suit my needs, including calendars, task lists, project boards, and knowledge bases. Notion's real-time collaboration allows my team members to work on projects together in a single interface, commenting and updating information is easy. It also made me use Notion for my personal and business, and now my life has evolved with Notion. It integrates my life, and my work thru devices like my iPhone, iPad, and multiple computers. Just the perfect tool for me and others, both personal and business. Highly recommend it!

Cons:

Accessing shared pages in Notion as a guest is a little more involved than downloading a shared file from Google Drive. However, it is still possible to view shared pages in Notion without creating an account, as long as you have the correct link and the person who shared the page has set the correct sharing permissions. Besides this, Notion is perfect!

Notion Review

3.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: I think Notion is a great application if you put the effort into setting it up properly. It does take some time to get used to, but when you get the hang of the product it is simply amazing.

Pros:

Notion, when used properly can be an incredible aesthetic/pleasing to the eye. Its very customizable to the user and can do many different things. In addition, support online is vast and many other people create templates for free.

Cons:

Notion has a very steep learning curve. Unlike other software planners like Google Calendar, it takes a lot of time and experience to really get the full Notion usage. This includes linking certain tasks to certain classes and many features that need to be manually edited.

Notion is where my brain lives.

5.0 last month New

Comments: I have been exclusively using Notion for about 3 years for all things organization. I keep track of workflows for multiple areas of responsibility. It's insanely robust and powerful at an incredible price point.

Pros:

I love the user interface. I thoroughly enjoy database linking. They recently added tabs and its the best feature thus far!

Cons:

The mobile app is not stellar. It has vastly improved in the past year. This app thrives on a desktop.
