Notion 2.12, now with better comments 💬
Collaborate more effectively with your team through a completely redesigned comments experience in Notion. Here are the key ways it will improve the way you work together, whether you're giving feedback, suggesting revisions, or planning projects:
New comments sidebar
See every comment on a page at a glance, and respond to any comment thread — all consolidated in your new right-hand sidebar.
Resolvebutton to archive any comments where no more action is required, or filter your sidebar to only view
Resolved comments, so you can see a history of decisions made.
Attach images, GIFs, videos & files
When you're commenting on someone's doc, giving feedback about your teammates' design, or asking a colleague for the correct PDF, plain text doesn't always get the job done.
Now you and your teammates can add rich attachments to all your comments, including images, animated GIFs, full-length videos, and file attachments like DOCX files from Google Docs or Microsoft Word, PDFs & more.
Copy & share links to specific comments
When folks are catching up on the status of a project or decision, it's helpful to point them to the exact thread where the discussion is taking place.
To do this, click the
•••button that appears when you hover your cursor over a comment, then click
Copy link. Then, paste the URL in a Slack message, email, text message, or however you want to share with your teammate.
Set a public home page for [yourdomain].notion.site
Hosting your company's careers page, investor pitch deck, or personal blog on a public Notion page? When someone asks for the link to your site, "acmedesign.notion.site/f7s8b0" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, or fit on a business card. And before now, "acmedesign.notion.site" would have resulted in an error screen.
If you have a paid plan, you can now select a home page for your public site, so anyone who goes to .notion.site will be taken to whatever page you choose.
To do this:
Go to the page you'd like to set as the homepage for your public site, and ensure that
Share to webis turned on in the
Settings & members→
Settingsand scroll to the Public home page section to select your home page
Be sure to also select a custom domain name in the Domain section if you haven't done so already
Create Siri Shortcuts to your Notion pages
"Hey Siri, open my Notion dashboard." Now shortcuts like this are easy to create in the Shortcuts app on your iOS device. The next time you open your Shortcuts app, you'll find that Notion has been added as a compatible app. And if you usually open a Notion page on your device around the same time of day, it may appear in your Siri Suggestions as well.
P.S. You'll need to have opened the page on your device recently for it to appear in the Shortcuts app!
Find your Notion pages in Search on iPhone & iPad
First, swipe down in the middle of your iOS home screen. When you type the name of a Notion page, it will appear in the search results (as long as you've viewed that page on your device before).
Copy & paste multi-column layouts
This one has been a long time coming! Now when you click and drag to select blocks in a multi-column layout and copy to your clipboard, the column structure will stay intact when you paste it somewhere else in Notion.
