Notion product overview

Notion is an all-in-one workspace for notes, tasks, wikis, databases, and project management. The platform makes all work customizable, so organizations get to work exactly the way they want to. Teams can build their own tools and workflows, create best-in-class documentation, and make them all accessible.

Notion’s structure works like a set of software Legos – giving users building blocks for any doc or project type. With these blocks, users can combine text, databases, task lists, images, videos, and embeds to get the job done. Teams can start with a blank canvas or choose a template to hit the ground running. The software streamlines creating wikis, a product roadmap, a CRM, or meeting notes. It gives users a single space where they can think, write, and plan. Notion empowers users to capture thoughts, manage projects, or run an entire company — and do it precisely the way they prefer.

Text editor

Notion is, first and foremost, a writing tool that works as simply as any word processor. However, it allows individuals to put more on a page than plain text. Users can add many different types of content to a page, move it around, and modify it in new ways. Once they’re there, users can rearrange, organize, and structure the content to think and write more clearly.

Workspace

Everything users do in Notion takes place in a workspace. The workspace is a virtual home to organize information as an individual user, together as a team, or across a whole company. Users can expand, edit, and mold it to fit their needs. When users sign up for Notion, they can create multiple workspaces connected to their accounts. Each workspace is customizable with workspace-specific settings. They can also export a whole workspace at once as HTML, PDF, Markdown, or CSV.

Project management

Notion enables users to handle projects, wikis, and docs, all side by side. It allows small teams to large organizations to keep everyone aligned from scoping to launch day. Users can manage high-level projects and specific tasks with custom Gantt and Kanban setups. The software maintains everything in one central space, so everyone has what they need to do their best work. Meeting notes, goal planning, process docs — teams can log all crucial decisions and give stakeholders visibility into who’s doing what and when.

Collaboration

The collaborative editing and comments feature lets teams work together wherever they are. Users can comment anywhere on a page and have a conversation about a doc or project inline. They can also @-mention a person to draw their attention to something on a page. The person mentioned will get a notification that they can respond to in real-time.
