3-2-1: Hand-written notes to Notion, PARA in Notion & Group mentions

Hey — it's Rames

Another 🔥 week within Notion’s ecosystem. So much fire that it spread all the way to the Indian ocean. It was boiling hot while I was catching Tamarin’s waves this Sunday.

3 Tips

1/ Group mentions

Are you tired of @-mentioning all your teammates when they need to be updated on some topic?


This is now over! Notion just enabled group mentions 🔥

@-mention a group to notify its members all at once. Hover to see them all

2/ Hand-written notes to Notion

Although I love Notion, there's something about notebooks that gives me shivers. I love taking book notes and journaling on a physical notebook, but I'm always disappointed that I don't have a place to store and search for all of it.

What if I told you that we can now have both? 😍

Let me introduce you to NotionFlow - an app (in alpha) that converts any picture with handwriting into a specific Notion page. If that's not magic, I don't know what is!

Try it now!

3/ Notion’s Slack trigger

Another new update from our beloved Notion team: Slack notifications integration.

You can now receive Slack notifications each time a property has been edited in a specific Notion database.

  • Due date = Today? ✅ Notification.
  • Status = Completed? ✅ Notification.
  • Person = Me? ✅ Notification.

This will save many automations setups & keep your team updated.

2 Resources

1/ Notion PARA system: a how-to guide

Para is a framework developed by productivity expert Tiago Forte that helps you organize your life into four distinct categories: Projects, Areas, Resources, and Archives. By dividing everything up into these four categories, you can create a system that's easy to use, flexible, and customizable to your needs.”

If you're interested in learning about PARA and implementing it into your Notion setup, I've written a short blog post on the subject. It's easy to follow and a great framework for keeping track of projects, tasks, and hobbies.

PARA, in Notion

2/ Notion for Startups

If you are a non-paying Notion customer with less than 50 employees and under $10M in funding from an accredited investor, you may be eligible for up to 6 months of free Notion usage with unlimited AI access. Additionally, you will receive a collection of templates specifically designed for startups, created by Notion.

This is awesome, and this is Notion for startups.
