I Use Notion to Manage My Second Brain, It's an App with Most Clean & Consistent Interface

Overall Notion is a great app for whoever wants to organize their work and life. Notion Second Brain Template is a game changer.

Pros

Notion is how I organize my existence. I enjoy how I can modify practically everything in the app's design and feel. The simplicity of the white canvas is astounding. With Hundreds of Notion Templates, It becomes very easy to quickly manage any aspect of life and work.
Notion Desktop is super quick, has a user-friendly design, and is quite versatile. With a few keystrokes, you may transform the canvas by simply adding blocks around it. Timeline Views, Grouped Views, List Views are fantastic.

Cons

I don't like the price. There should be a one time free. In Free version, User Collaboration should be allowed at least up to 2-5 users.

Flexible and Collaborative!

Personally, I love this tool because it allows me to build databases of knowledge, even my personal Resume page. Everything is in one place and I don't have to search extensively through notebooks or confusing organizational systems.

I like that you can really transform your ideas from just a thought to reality. Notion is great for tracking goals and helps you to navigate towards your end destination. If you're using it with a team it can be a great place to build up internal knowledge bases- but the trick is keeping it updated and making sure that what you're building is something an average Joe can navigate.

Pros

Notion is a great tool to use because you can do a variety of things on the tool. Project & task management, note-taking, building knowledge deposits, I even built my own resume page about myself in Notion!

It is a functional and flexible platform that also allows the administration of databases and these can be connected to each other and also provides great value as the ability to connect information between different departments or pages helps our employees find information easily.

Cons

The mobile apps aren't 100% amazing, there are some features that I think should be more included with the free version and the price is a little high.

Alternatives Considered

Confluence, monday.com and Asana

Reasons for Switching to Notion

Visually, the UX was the best and building pages inside of pages is really visually pleasing.

Ha tutte le carte in regola, ma non mi ha convinto

Pecca di minimalismo, che paradossalmente lo rende di difficile utilizzo. Le funzioni principali dovrebbero essere ben chiare, al contrario mi sono spesso trovato a chiedermi come ottenere anche le azioni più basilari. Forse ha bisogno di una curva di apprendimento più alta rispetto a quanto in questo momento sono disposto a concedere.

Pros

Di sicuro ha un'interfaccia moderna e personalizzabile, è leggero e minimale.

Cons

Ho provato ad usarlo per alcune settimane ma non mi ha convinto: mi sembra poco intuitivo e con funzionalità troppo elaborate per quanto riguarda la scrittura di memo, note e collaborazione.

Allrounder

All in all, Notion is top of the game when it comes to customization. No longer do you have to take an off-the-shelf software and adapt to it. With Notion, everything adapts to your needs and stays always customizable. A must for any user looking for freedom and structure at the same time when it comes to organizing your thoughts, life, project and products.

Pros

There‘s not much Notion can‘t seem to do. You can easily adjust it entirely to your liking - however, there is a pretty steep learning curve. Once you got it, though, the sky is your limit. Create as many pages as you‘d like, nest them within each other, shake up your hierarchy and even link databases onto other sites. The creative freedom concerning the hierarchy of your pages is phenomenal.

Cons

Lots of time spent getting to know Notion‘s myriad of options which results in a lot of studying early on and in a pretty steep learning curve. Luckily, there are tons of useful resources and learning videos including templates you can use and customize to your liking.
I really wish it had a better stylus/pen integration for quick and easy hand-written notes.

Alternatives Considered

Evernote Teams, Notability and GoodNotes

Reasons for Choosing Notion

OneNote - especially the Class Notebook - is great for teaching when you want to provide a clear set of hierarchy to your team or students. But using it for my personal organisation just never worked for me. It was too rigid with its narrow Section Group > Section > Page > Sub-page limitation. With Notion, I can simply nest as many pages within each other as I please - which is a game changer for me.

Reasons for Switching to Notion

Because it‘s cross-platform and unbelievably flexible.

My favorite ideas, projects and personal things managment in a free manner

It's awesome, nearly can sketch, plan and manage anything in it cause of its customization. Secondly, it has really easy and simple design.

Pros

The super customization and wide limitation to be in a paid plan, that really offers useful things and also make users grateful to Notion so they want to go paid plan to support Notion and the additional features.

Cons

There is no offline access until now and Arabic Left-to-Right is not supported too. If you need those 2 features mainly have to work around it to work like installing a chrome extension for Notion's website to support LTR Arabic.

Alternatives Considered

ClickUp

Reasons for Choosing Notion

In the first place, it's the customization and the limitation of the free plan then the performance and the ease of use.

Reasons for Switching to Notion

I choose Notion for its super customization and far limits of free plan and simplicity.
