What I use #2: Notion

January 06, 2019 0 Comments

I'm currently writing a series of posts talking about the software, services, products etc. that I use in my work, personal projects and daily life.

In my previous post I talked about ClickUp, my current task management solution. Day to day, this is effectively 50% of what I need. I also need somewhere where I can store snippets, meeting notes, documentation and all sorts of other content. As with the task tools, I've been through a whole ton of different products over the years. Evernote, OneNote, Google Drive, Google Keep, you name it, I've probably tried it, both for personal use and for business use.

I recently discovered a tool called Notion and I'm totally loving it. As with ClickUp, it's super flexible and can be moulded to whatever you need it to be. I'm using it right now as a knowledge base, for those aforementioned meeting notes and as a general dumping ground for anything text-ish.  It's excellent for collaborative work and it has mobile and desktop clients to help you use it anywhere.

Notion is free or cheap - the free tier provides 5MB of storage and 1000 'blocks', which is more than enough to give it a solid try, after which you'll be paying $4/month for the 'Personal' tier or $8/month of the 'Team' tier. Both very reasonable prices.

Head on over to their website to learn more or give the tool a try. I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
