🤷🏽♀️ Who needs list view, anyway?
I might be cancelled for this - a lot of you already tried - I don't like list view. There, I said it. For me, I need to be able to (ideally) edit directly on whatever view I'm using - homegirl list view just doesn't offer that.
I *guess* she's great for things you only need to view, but then there's always awkward spacing between the properties you show. Don't even get me *started* on trying to use it on a full-width page. A whole awkwardly white-spaced mess.
Anyways, I digress, if you like list view, I love that for you x
🪄 Notion AI is THAT girl
If you live on Notion Twitter and haven't been living under a rock, you'll know Notion AI is out. If you don't live on Notion Twitter/have been living under a rock (respect, who needs screen time anyways) - NOTION AI IS OUT.
That's right, Notion has a new in-app writing assistant that can do anything from writing sales pitches to Taylor Swift songs.
Truthfully, if I was a student, I would get it to outline every essay I had to write, but that's just me. But back to the real world (where plagiarism exists) this is going to be GREAT for content creation - I mean, look at the material:
It's currently in alpha for free (it will be paid in the future) and you can sign up HERE. Work smart, not hard, boo x
📆 SUBTLY A GAMECHANGER
As a gal who spends most of her life setting up filtered views in Notion for clients, I always get the question "can I filter it for this week?" The answer has always been no... until now!
Life changing, breathtaking - so subtle, it might not even make the release notes. But for hardcore Notion users, we can now stop filtering for "the past week" and "the next week" with hopes of capturing the "this week" essence.
💐 Flowers, deserved!
Congrats to RedGregory for reaching 20k on Twitter! I don't know if Elon's Twitter will last long enough for us to revel in these kind of milestones, but a worthy worthy recipient of this goalpost!
"Notion is a possibility tool, not a productivity tool"
I love this tweet for so many reasons!
1) The Notion community is awesome and Alejandra is someone who's content I genuinely love & respect
2) Touching to have been an inspiration to someone! I started this journey making very weird things outside of the humble habit tracker/ the Life/Biz OS to show off what Notion could be.
Is this the most profitable route? (my bank account will respetfully tell you no) but I am playing the long game making content for my true fans in the ministry of profuntivity ↓
