Managed the Transitioning to Notion and It Improved Our Productivity

Notion helped us centralize project management, documentation, and knowledge base into a single place. Now we have a strong way of doing things and documenting the knowledge across teams.

PROS

Customizable databases and different views make it pretty easy to manage resources and documents. The new "projects" feature was something I had been looking forward to for months, and finally, we have it.

CONS

Some team members find it a bit difficult to start with. Getting the whole team to adapt using Notion took a while.

Reason for choosing Notion

Intuitive User Interface and customizable features

Reasons for switching to Notion

Notion already had project management features. We moved all the projects from Asana to Notion and ended our Asana subscription.

Notion is my new default workspace

PROS

I like that notion has all the pros of a spreadsheet plus all the pros of a word doc. It can be simple or flexible. It's clean, easy to read, and doesn't waste a lot of user time on formatting when content is king.

CONS

The spreadsheet formulas are clunkier than excel/sheets, but everything else is superior.

Possibly the most popular knowledge management tool, but privacy concerns

Notion is quite powerful and very popular tool. But perhaps one can easily get too lost in configuring and templating their spaces instead of just using the core function of documentation. I'm no longer using it because of privacy issues.

PROS

One of the strengths of Notion is its flexibility. Users can create databases, tables, and lists with ease, and customize them with different views, filters, and sorting options. The platform also allows for rich media embedding, so users can add images, videos, and files to their notes and pages. It has a very generous education discount for both students and teachers.

CONS

While Notion is highly customizable, this can also be a weakness for some users. The platform's flexibility means that users need to spend a considerable amount of time setting up and configuring their workspace to meet their needs, which can be time-consuming and distracting.There are also privacy concerns. I remember a few reddit threads where users requested for support and they were surprised how easy it was for them to access their workspace after giving verbal/textual permission.Performance is also an issue. Complex or large workspaces can be extremely slow.

Reason for choosing Notion

Notion was the most popular and quite possibly has the most features. But I'm no longer using it because of privacy concerns.

The Most Flexible and Delightful Tool I Ever Found

I love Notion. Period. It's the beating heart of my business.

PROS

It's like a lego set. You can can build anything you need. You can get everything out of your head and into a completely custom system. You can start simple and build as you learn. From day one as a note taking app. Day two for tasks and before you know if you've build a full blown business management suite.

CONS

My only downside is that any system can fall into chaos. As a creative I can go overboard and build too much complexity. Take it from Bob - stay simple. You'll thank me. Just because you can build anything does not mean you should.

Reasons for switching to Notion

Both the tools I was using put barriers in the way to just getting the work done. Notion is very bare bones and that's why it works.
