When we talk about Notion, I love to use the book analogy. Notion is like a page that is easy to manage thanks to the block content. We can arrange those blocks based on our needs, and also, we can have a full search across other pages. We basically use it for our internal documentation, like the HR handbook, to explain how the recruitment and onboarding process goes and technical documentation about our software development process. But when you're familiar with the Database block Type, you can turn Notion into anything. For example, some departments use Notion as task management because the database block type can be viewed using Kanban, Calendar, or Timeline view. You can always look for inspiration on how to use Notion from their Template Gallery. Another cool feature is the sharing options. You can easily manage other users to view only, comment, or edit on specific pages.
If you're looking for an app to take notes, documentation, handbook, then the answer is yes, Notion suits you well. But if you need to extend this functionality using automation or custom API, you need to wait a little longer as Notion API still in the beta stage.
"Content Block" based A lot of content block type Easy to customized Cross-Platform: Web, Desktop, Mac, Mobile Easy to manage sharing access
Mobile app needs UX improvement The search function takes time if you have a lot of pages Some people might think it's too technical and hard to getting used to it Automation and API still in beta

intuitive web design apart from billing Without our knowledge, Notion set up a function where anyone we shared a 'guest' link with automatically was prompted to create an account for which we were billed at full price. All our pages were public anyway, so creating an account didnt reap any additional benefits. Nevertheless, we were charged for all these users. Resulting in an enormous bill. When contacting support, they didn't want to help. And referred to their policy of not refunding after 3 days from the billing cycle. If you choose to use this service, be very very cautious about what they bill. Knowledge management
