How Notion uses Notion

8 templates

A while back, we wrote a piece on to organize all our teams, docs, and projects. Obviously, we do practically everything in Notion. So when we need a new tool, we immediately think: "Can we build this in Notion?" Often we do.

It's a question we've seen a lot of other startups face, especially when you don't want to break the bank on expensive software. This template collection includes seven of the most impactful tools we built on Notion instead of buying them — use them as inspiration for your own team.

1. Notion's all hands presentation

The entire Notion team gets together every two weeks to align on goals and celebrate wins. Instead of using Powerpoint or Google Slides, we present every all-hands in a Notion page. That way, we can link to other pages, add embeds, and create an interactive presentation that documents our company's growth.

2. Notion's careers page

Here at Notion, our work shapes our culture and our culture inspires our work. Our customized careers page spotlights our mission to enable more toolmakers as well as day-to-day life. Use this template to showcase all aspects of your company's culture, and to quickly add and update roles.

3. Notion's people directory

We call our employee directory a "people directory" — because it's all about the people. Instead of using a separate HR tool, we use a database in Notion with custom properties (birthday, office pets, etc.) to give every teammate space to show off their personalities. You can also view the table by team or sort by date joined.

4. Notion's editorial calendar

Usually marketing teams have separate tools for planning and writing content. At Notion, we do all of that in one database. Using a calendar view, we can see our monthly publishing schedule and move pieces around to avoid traffic jams. That way, everyone in the company knows there's only one place to look for any editorial project.

5. Notion's sales one-pager: Services overview

Growing sales teams need a lot of content — competitor comparisons, product demos, packets for different use cases and personas. Instead of a PDF, a Notion page lets you enhance the experience with product GIFs and YouTube links. The built-in formatting structures like columns and headers also make sure that your pages always look beautiful.

6. Notion's sales one-pager: Competitor comparison

7. Notion's media kit

Media kits are an important way of making sure your brand is portrayed consistently in the press. Use this template to showcase items such as your logo, product screenshots, office photos, and team portraits.

8. Notion's agency hub

Onboarding a contractor is the same as onboarding a new internal teammate — they'll need brand guidelines, product training, internal processes, and context about the actual projects they're working on.

Use this template so your contractors have a central place to find all this information. The wiki creates full transparency and allows both sides to do their best work together.
