Notion

Dashboard data insights for tracking business team performance

4.75/5 (4 reviews)
26    

Notion provides a centralized business intelligence system, blending data from multiple sources into a dashboard-based environment. With an emphasis on supporting communication and collaboration within teams, Notion promises to make unlimited dashboard creation and report sharing intuitive to all by simplifying data collection. No coding or IT expertise is required to not only connect team members but also connect to third-party performance tools and automatically collect data from Pivotal Tracker, Zendesk, JIRA, Intercom, GitHub, MailChimp and more. Integration opportunities can be extended with API access, while out of the box support for Google Sheets and Slack enables historical data to be imported before goals or visualizations are effortlessly incorporated into team conversations.

Notion's Data Directory offers a single "source of truth" to relevant team members, feeding back the most important data with details on ownership, frequency of reporting and updates. Authorized users can then build derived metrics specific to their own needs, creating custom "recipes" from tools, API, or manually updated data sources alongside automated workflows. Team Polling augments this process by swapping numbers and formulas for anonymous question posing to colleagues, gauging valuable business knowledge from even the least vocal stakeholders.

Benefits

Notion is a business intelligence solution for team-oriented deployment where data reporting functions need to be shared and collaborated on, giving stakeholders rapid access to the KPIs that matter most.

The system first promises to simplify collection with automated data connectors and API-based integration with popular performance tools such as JIRA, Bitbucket, GitHub, Zendesk, MailChimp, Mixpanel and more.

Slack integration also makes the embedding of data visualizations into conversations more seamless, encouraging authorized parties to discuss and collaborate on reporting workflows.

Users can build an unlimited amount of data dashboards featuring the custom KPIs of individual and collective importance, while the Data Directory centralizes team-wide updates.

Build metrics with custom data formula "recipes" guided by automated workflows or use a Team Polling feature to capture colleague responses anonymously and gather valuable contextual knowledge often not volunteered by less vocal stakeholders.

Best & Easiest software I've used for data analysis & tracking important metrics

21/02/2017

I've used a number of data & analytics tools in a few different industry (policy, investment banking). None of them were as easy to get started with or helped pull the most relevant information as Notion. Even on our team of 5, the team polling feature changed the way our team was able to collaborate and make decisions about the most important metrics that run our business. We were also able to publicize these metrics to a more broad group of people in a concise, valuable, and beautiful way. We're planning to expand our use of the product going forward.

Notion is filling a need

17/02/2017

We've not yet adopted Notion as fully as it could be ¿ but it already gives us a great place to store historical data from several sources. And the team behind it is spot on, very responsive to issue or feature requests. They have given me confidence that this service will only get better.

Share your KPIs with your team and your board

15/02/2017

I was looking for a way to stop the spreadsheet flinging madness amongst department heads. Notion came about just at the right time. We use their API and user interface to enter the data we want to track, produce reports to share and look for trends. The Notion have been super responsive with our feature requests or problems. Highly recommended.

Pros

Overall it is a great way for all our departments to share information including SaaS metrics, marketing lead gen, sales numbers, product development quality and backlog concerns. Very easy to use. Great support.

Cons

Still waiting on a couple of features like lists (tables) but time based tooling works great.
