Imagine you could easily create and maintain a system to collect and organize all your essential digital information in one central place. Go even further and picture a private digital space to manage all your notes, to-dos, learnings and lists in one easily accessible point of truth and knowledge.

The good news is: This place already exists! It’s called Notion.

Now envision being able to create automated workflows for all the apps you use every day and connect them with your digital point of truth and knowledge. Hence, the system gathers all the important information on its own, elevating your private digital space to the next level.

As of yesterday, that day is close, my friends! Because on the 13. May 2021 Notion launched its API into public beta.

What does that mean? You are now able to connect Notion to other apps! This means further: You can now connect pages and databases to the other tools you already use day in and out.

This is incredibly powerful. And the best part? You don’t even need to be a programmer to reap the benefits of this integration today!

But let’s slow down and take a closer look at what Notions API launch means for its users.

What Is the Deal With Notions Productivity Software Anyway?

Notion is an app and web app for productivity. The company positions its solution as “The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.” But that doesn’t do it enough justice!

As most productivity nerds like myself know, Notion is one of the best digital applications to collect, organize and manage notes, databases, kanban boards, wikis, calendars and reminders.

Notion gives users one of the best tools to create individual but comprehensive to-do, knowledge, notes, data, and project management systems.
