Notion is an expressive and collaborative document editor that gives your ideas a place to grow.
Notion is a new way to write, share and collaboratively work on documents. It’s a little difficult to get started using the service, but that’s only because the options as to how to use it are so expansive. You could use it as a Google Drive alternative, writing documents and collaborating with others. You can also create to-do lists, lists with interactive buttons, or pages of organized boxes. Notion almost a website builder like Squarespace or Wix, but you don’t use it as a web design tool. You use it for your own (or shared) purposes, but it’s still nice to organize things in an intuitive way.
One of the coolest things about Notion is the way you can incorporate images, videos, and other file types into your document. You can even drag snippets of code in order to fully customize your document. Going along with the aforementioned website building theme, you can also build multiple pages within the same document. You can create links to those pages, making it much easier to organize your ideas and reference ideas later. If this all sounds confusing, Notion has one of the most helpful tutorials I’ve ever seen. As soon as you set up a (free, for now, while the site’s in early access) account, you’re greeted with a helpful walkthrough. Check it out now.
