So let’s start with the first one
The first one is creating your own inbox creating an inbox inside of notion is a great way to plot and dump a few articles information like that Remember notion is coming out with a Web Clipper soon so that you’ll be able to clip stuff from the web In a much more easier fashion, and I’m sure that will include the likes of PDFs number two and your own cover photo
This is something a lot of people miss out on but you can actually upload your own cover photo to your notion account It’s really easy to do All you have to do is head out upload and you can even reposition to make it perfect for your new page Number three, you can leave notes for yourself even even inside of the personal account You can use the discussion tab to actually leave a few notes for yourself at the top of the page It’s quite a handy way. If you want to just dump a link or an idea or a way to improve the experience I’ll use this a lot inside of any long-form pieces uncrating in there.
So do check it out number four You can create a v2 home page I know a lot of people spend some time redesigning their home page inside of notion and that can be wasted time if you’re constantly Developing your home page in the live view So one of my recommendation is to create a v2 home page and on side of your home page So that you can create create let’s begin creating your home page without Damaging your current page and then you can transfer all of the stuff in just a quick move versus actually constantly Developing your home page and this is tip number four number five You can use full of bleed web bookmarks Sometimes this actually works out really well cuz a lovely image appears on that right or left hand side and it gives you a great Little schroeder summary before you dive in instead of just having an ugly link dumb Number six you can add your own icons
This is a tip that I got from Ben wheeler over on the reddit and also David Pierce which we’ve done a video with about how he sets up his notion now the icons help to brighten up the experience and if you Want certain icons like for example and travel I added Airbnb and that made it a little bit of more Customizable and also on the inbox I brought in and I can’t find the inbox which you can download for free and of course access That there number 7 is embed Google Maps into your travel plans This is something I started to do and it has become a great way to me to visualize all of the maps that I’ve got There if I open it on my phone and
I double click on the map it will open up Google Maps and I have all Of the instant information that I need to know and start working with so Google Maps integration embedded works. Really? Well number eight adding a colored background behind Headers inside of any of your pages or notes if you want to spruce them up Just click behind them and actually change the color you might have to scroll to the bottom but if you can change the background color to them and this really brightens up the piece as well as making it more clear and Obvious, it’s perfect for onboarding documents for your team But you can make it look a lot better. If you use this function number nine, you can change the font per page This is something a lot of people don’t know of they feel like it once they create a font change
It will create across the site But you can actually go to top right-hand corner The three dots and actually change the font for that page you’re using I’ve got a couple of San serif sans serif some different pages and they look great and they work for the both of the different experiences that I’ve got number 10 You can duplicate a page or Blanc This can save you a huge amount of time If you’re looking to quickly Duplicate a page or even a block that you’ve got working is useful if you create a page that can be replicated really easily Number 11 try full width or small width and you can actually choose between the two of these I recommend going with small width but again You can go full bleed across the page using full width and that’s something that will change your aspect ratio on The actual notion window but actually really does help and actually improve the ocean experience depending on how you’d like to lay out everything Number 12 access dark mode. Give it a try A lot of people really praised aren’t commode a lot of people don’t find it useful But if you’re actually using it at night, or you actually want to just change up your notion Brightness or whatever you want. Just try dark mode It might help you to re-energize some of the work that you’re doing number 13.
