Differences on mobile

Here's a quick summary of what is different between the desktop and mobile experience:

A tour of the mobile app

  • Create a new page by tapping on the pencil & paper icon at the bottom right.

  • Quick Find can be opened by tapping on the magnifying glass at the bottom left.

  • Open your All Updates menu by tapping the bell icon at the bottom middle.

  • The sidebar is hidden by default, but can be revealed by tapping the  icon.

    • Notifications & settings replaces Settings & Members and includes the ability to edit notification, password, and appearance options.

    • Help & Feedback triggers the same menu as the ? button at the bottom right on desktop.

Some settings are only available on desktop

On mobile, you can't take the following actions. You'll have to log in on desktop or browser.

  • Delete or leave workspaces.

  • Edit plan or billing settings.

  • Edit workspace security settings.

  • Import data.

  • Change your account information (photo, email address, name, etc.)

Add content from the mobile toolbar

Editing content on Notion pages works very differently on mobile devices.

  • On desktop, you can add content blocks using slash commands (i.e. /image or /todo) or by hitting the + icon that appears in the left margin on hover.

  • On mobile, you need to press + in the toolbar above your keyboard to choose what content type you want to add to your page.

  • In that same toolbar, you'll see options to @-mention a page or person, add a comment, add an image, delete content, indent content, and more. On desktop, these options are usually triggered by clicking the ⋮⋮ icon that appears to the left of content on hover.

Key interface differences

  • You cannot select multiple blocks by tapping and dragging the same way you can click and drag on desktop.

  • There are no hover states on mobile. Instead, you'll see ••• and + icons persist. On desktop, these icons only appear on hover.

  • There are no columns on mobile. Any column structure that you created on desktop will be collapsed to a single column.
