Overview

Notion is a connected workspace that provides individuals and teams with a single platform to manage their workflows.

At its core, Notion users can do three things: create docs, build wikis, and manage projects. Originally a note-taking app, it was developed to replace apps like Google Docs and Dropbox.

Notion comes with a collection of ‘building blocks’ that companies can use to build a fully customized workspace, but it performs best as a functional text editor.

Notion features

Notion has several features that come together to make it a versatile docs tool. Let’s look at the three most prominent ones.

Docs

Notion Docs come pre-built with an array of building blocks: text, code snippets, toggles, images and videos, to-do lists, math equations, and more. Users can create pretty much any type of document with Notion.

Before getting into the nitty-gritty of how each tool fares in different categories, here’s a quick overview of the best features of ClickUp and Notion.
