5 Productivity Tips for Notion

5 Productivity Tips for Notion

In the world where staying organized equals staying ahead, Notion emerges as a beacon of productivity. As you have seen in my previous blog posts it is a tool that can be your planner, database, task manager, and so much more. Let’s unlock its full potential with these top 5 productivity tips you can apply inside of Notion!

Tip 1: Mastering Keyboard Shortcuts

Efficiency in Notion starts with mastering keyboard shortcuts. Here are a few to get you started:

  • Ctrl/Cmd + N: Create a new page instantly.
  • Ctrl/Cmd + P: Open quick search to find anything quickly. My favourite!
  • Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N: Open Notion in a new window, perfect for multitasking.

These shortcuts are just the beginning – they’ll make your Notion experience smoother and faster.

Tip 2: Utilizing Templates Effectively

Don’t reinvent the wheel. Notion’s template gallery offers a plethora of pre-made templates, suitable for every imaginable need. From task trackers to reading lists, these templates are your shortcut to a well-organized life.

Two of my favourite and most useful templates can be found in my previous blog posts:

  1. Write effective notes – Cornell Note Taking System
  2. Kickstart your next semester – Ultimate HSLU Semester Planner

Tip 3: Integrating with Other Tools

Notion plays well with others. Integrating it with tools like Asana for deadlines, Slack for communication, or Trello for project management creates a centralized hub for all your information, making sure you never miss a beat.

Tip 4: Advanced Text Formatting

Advanced text formatting is a game-changer. Utilize toggles (/toggle) to create expandable lists – great for decluttering. Embrace callouts (/callout) for highlighting important notes. Embed databases within pages to keep related information at your fingertips.

Tip 5: Using Linked Databases for Seamless Organization

Linking databases in Notion allows you to connect and view related information across different pages. Imagine linking a task in your daily planner to a main project in your project database – it streamlines tracking and updates information in real-time.

Notion is Your Personal Productivity Partner

With these tips, Notion becomes more than just a note-taking app; it’s your all-in-one productivity partner. Access Notion for free via the following link and watch as your efficiency reaches new heights. Remember, the key to productivity is not just working hard but working smart.

Hey, nice that you are reading my blog! My name is Jannik and I'm from Voerde on the Lower Rhine, which is in Germany. When I'm not working or writing blogs, you can find me doing sports or drinking coffee. From road cycling to mountain biking and running, I'm very keen on sports. Besides this, a really good coffee is a must. A good coffee takes time. Nevertheless, I am very interested in productivity techniques and ways to make our workflows more efficient.
