Notion.so is a productivity tool that allows users to workspace self-organize, take notes, and collaborate with others. The tool features a main dashboard that serves as the command center for all writing projects. Users can customize their Quick Links section to include their most frequently used resources. Quick Notes allows users to create new notes without interrupting their workflow, while Active Writings lets users keep track of what they are currently working on. The Inbox feature keeps track of all new readings that have been collected. The reading list is sorted by priority, allowing users to know what to work on next.
Notion.so also features a specific dashboard for each writing project. Once a user adds a new project, the system automatically creates it. The user can then pick all related topics for the writing project, and the tool will automatically pull in all the relevant information that has ever been collected. This feature eliminates the need for users to dig through their notes or frantically try to remember where they saved a paper that could come in handy.
The tool also includes a dedicated section for notes. The Academic Writing in Notion Template comes with two types of notes: Meeting Notes and Brainstorming Notes. Users can assign a topic or related writing to their notes, and they will automatically appear in the right context, wherever they are needed. Users can also integrate the Note Section with another template called Zettelkasten for Notion, a simple tool for networked thoughts.
Notion.so’s AI assistant produces text responses based on user’s questions and the current page context. Users can pull up Notion AI in one of three ways, depending on their needs. The AI assistant can improve existing content, generate a summary, extract insights from a page, or draft new text. The AI assistant uses context from the page and custom user prompts to produce outputs.
Notion AI can also be used to summarize messy notes for stakeholders. The tool can create perfectly-custom content using special AI blocks such as summarize, action items, and custom content. These blocks can be baked into database templates as a regular part of a meeting process.
Notion AI can quickly move users from scrappy notes to polished documents. Users can write bullet points and have AI do the rest, identify key insights quickly, and analyze large text-based data sets. Notion AI can also adapt the tone of a document, fix spelling and grammar, find synonyms, or translate content into another language.
To get the output they want, users should focus on the specificity of the prompt when using Notion AI. They should start with a clear goal in mind, provide as much context as possible, and keep it simple.
Notion.so allows users to embed content from 500+ apps directly into Notion. Users can also add a database in-line in the body of a Notion page, create a page that includes both writing and databases, and move and structure content around a page.
Notion supports many Markdown shortcuts, allowing users to create inline code, bulleted lists, to-do checkboxes, and numbered lists. The tool is designed to get thoughts out of a user’s head and onto the page, allowing them to rearrange, organize, and structure their thoughts to think and write more clearly.
Users can create a summary table that pulls the totals from four separate tables by creating a relation between the summary table and the four separate tables. With that relation in place, they are able to create rollups of the data in the separate tables.
