What I Like About Notion

Notion is an amazing, all in one productivity tool where you can literally build the productivity system of your dreams. While I myself don’t use it exclusively as my one productivity tool, it is my preferred project and content management app. Here are some of the features I like the most:


Notion allows you to set up your own organizational structures, which, admittedly, can be a bit intimidating at first. Things can get complicated very quickly if you're not careful. However, this flexibility is great for someone like me who likes to tweak their organizational structure on a regular basis. I also like having a customized workflow, so having full control over how the workflow is structured is ideal for me.

Markdown Support

I love writing in Markdown as it allows me to quickly add text formatting while I’m in the process of writing. Notion automatically converts the Markdown you write so things like headings and bullet lists show up as you would expect them to right away.

Project Management

As I did with note taking apps, I went through a bit of a journey trying to find my preferred project management app. I mostly bounced between Trello, Zenkit, and Airtable before finding Notion. As I mentioned already, Notion’s flexibility allows me to manage projects the way I want to rather than having to conform to how the app thinks I should. Truly the best thing about Notion is the ability to shape it into the productivity app you want without having to code one yourself. I also love the ability to set up different views of my projects, such as a Kanban board and a Calendar view for my website content.

These are just a few of the things I love about Notion. If you're looking for a great app to use for project management, content management, personal knowledge management, notes, wikis, tasks, etc, give Notion a try. It's entirely free for personal use, so there's no risk in giving it a spin.
