As many of you may know, I use Notion for pretty much everything. Organizing my daily to do list, keeping track of school assignments, and anything else that I need to remember in my life.
I get quite a few comments about how to use Notion, so I thought I’d make a quick post about 5 tips I’ve learned that have completely changed the way I use Notion.
I’m going to be making videos on each of these tips every day for the next 5 days, so if you need a more of an in depth tutorial, make sure to follow me on TikTok (@lifewithhopee) and Instagram (@lifewith.hopee)! Let’s get into it.
Sub-pages are your best friend.
If you’re someone who likes to categorize EVERYTHING, then sub-pages will be your best friend. A sub-page lets you create a new page within an existing one, and this is seriously perfect for organization.
For example, let’s say you’re taking an English course and want to take notes on it. But every day, you get a new chapter.
In Notion, you’d create a page titled “English” and then mini sub-pages titled “Ch. 1”, “Ch. 2”, etc. Neat, right?
You can create links to other pages for easy access.
I’m someone who loves efficiency. If I need to check on a certain page pretty often (like my daily agenda), I can create a link to my Agenda Page and attach it to my Home Page.
This is an easy way to organize your pages without having to think twice about it.
Take advantage of reminders and due dates.
Now this is something that I never used until recently, and let me tell you - I am OBSESSED.
Notion lets you use the “@” symbol to remind yourself of anything at a later date and/or time.
I personally love using this feature for reminders on upcoming assignments, meetings, and additional due dates that I need to keep track of.
If you’re new to Notion, templates are a great place to start. It can be intimidating to try and create your Notion page all on your own, so templates are the perfect solution!
If you don’t know where to get templates, you can check out some templates here on my website!
Make sure you download Notion Web Clipper!
This is another feature that I only recently started using, but it is super convenient. You can find it as a Google Chrome or Safari extension - both work!
It basically lets you clip and keep track of any of the websites you want while browsing online. This is especially great for research projects where you have a bunch of tabs open - the solution? Keep them all in Notion so you don’t lose track!
