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

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.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft OneNote, Airtable, AppSheet and monday.com

versatile and powerful tool to help you organize your docs, and manage your tasks

I find it to be a very versatile and powerful tool that has greatly improved my ability to organize and manage my work. The clean interface, availability on multiple platforms, and the variety of integrations with other tools and services make it a pleasure to use.In many ways, I consider it to be the new Google Drive, but with more flexibility and customization options. I would definitely recommend Notion to anyone looking for a better way to organize and manage their work.

Pros

It is highly customizable and can be used for a wide range of purposes, including project management, note taking, and task tracking. I also like it because it's easy to use and has a clean and intuitive interface. Additionally, it is available on the web, mobile and desktop.

Cons

I found it hard to use Notion on iPads and with Apple Pencils. While it's very intuitive on laptop, it's doesn't feel the same on an iPad when using a pencil.

It's fine...but hard to figure out.

It's fine - I don't hate it, but I won't be missing it when we no longer use it.

Pros

It's nice to know all of the knowledge I need is within one software - albeit sometimes hard to find.

Cons

It's very hard to figure out how to use. Even with their tutorials, it took a fair amount of personal research to truly use it the most efficiently.

Exteremely affordable project management tool for freelancers and design agencies

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.

This is the accelerator of your work, if it is not systematized, expect trouble.

90% of the effort when working with this system was spent on putting the processes in order in their work. Therefore, this system, like a good mirror, will reflect all your shortcomings.

Pros

Comfortable, beautiful, and smart. There are many good qualities, but they are ultimately not as important as the disadvantages.

Cons

We've been using the system for over two years now, and transitioning to it has been surprisingly difficult. Some abstraction from the typical idea of tasks is required.
