What is Notion?

Notion is a workspace platform for organizing, processing and managing information, data, content, and media\files.

Notion combines the capabilities and features of several online tools like task management, note-taking, web clipping, spreadsheets, collaborative documents, databases, and more.

How it works?

The basic unit in Notion is the Block. A block can be text, title, image, to-do, embed and more. The verity of blocks is large. The most sophisticated block is the Database block.
With blocks, you can create rich structured Pages.
Pages can be part of a silo (folder) or part of a database. Each page can have sub-pages to infinite levels.

Everything in Notion – pages and databases – is part of a workspace.
A Notion account (user) can have many workspaces.
