If you're wanting to create your "Personal Productivity Suite" You'll need to start with your Task Manager. In this video I'll show you the options and how to create a "Master Task List" (My personal suggestion)
I've been using Notion as a task manager for a while now. It's frankly amazing. I have so many different databases, rollups and relations. But if I was to start again. I would start with a Master Task Database.
Once you understand how to use the Databases (in particular this one). You'll unlock notion secrets that you never thought were possible which takes it beyond the likes of other Task Managers like Asana or Trello!
So to start with...
Put simply it'll become the connection between all other databases inside your Notion account. It's where you store the tasks you're going to complete, and when you're going to complete them. Through the use of relational properties & linked databases you'll be able to go beyond the simplicity of the humble To DO and connect everything together.
You can very quickly create a checkbox within Notion - this is the fastest way of starting to use Notion for task management but there are a few issues with the humble To-Do.
However, that doesn't mean that To Do's are useless. They are great for fast, and quick noting tasks you WANT to do. Also they make great subtasks!
Put simply by having a database to store your tasks, you can create different dashboards for your work...
Instead of just having one long list of tasks to do, you can filter it out.
For example in my system I have a dashboard for:
By using a master database I can see these tasks in any format, way and view I need to!
You can see above the retainer only tasks, only shows 2 property - the person working on it, and the done tickbox. Whereas the Today list shows a lot more including the Project.
