Nuclino vs. Notion

Nuclino vs. Notion

Online collaboration tools have enabled in-office and remote teams to work on projects effectively and efficiently.

This article covers Nuclino vs. Notion, two well-liked note-taking/collaboration tools for individuals and teams.

What are both?


How does Nuclino Work

Nuclino is a combined solution for note-taking, project management, and collaboration. Its UI is easy to use. The app uses workspaces; you add items (pages) under each workspace.

Desktop, online, and mobile apps make it simple to swiftly search for specific information, record call/meeting notes, etc.


How Does Notion Work

Notion is a cloud-based note-taking app that has over 30 million users today.

The app has grown in popularity over time owing to how customizable it is and how many project management options it offers as an additional perk.

When it comes to taking notes, Notion is very effective. Notion’s blend of task management, wikis, and notes makes it excellent for writers, graphic designers, marketers, and the like.

The power of Notion is Notion blocks. It brings over 50 block types, letting you add as much info to pages as possible. You can add pages, calendars, databases, videos, and other data types inside a page.

Nuclino is easier to use than Notion. It has the navigation to the left and the note in the center. Nuclino comes with four view sections:

  • Lists: Here, you see items (pages) in lists in the workspace.
  • Board: This section lets you create Kanban-style boards with the help of collections.
  • Table: You get to see the table view of the workspace.
  • Graph: The graph shows you a graphical view of the workspace.

Notion also has the main navigation to the left. It has more blocks than Nuclino, so it isn’t easy to understand. It also supports more embedding services.

Note-taking features

In both Nuclino and Notion, the forward slash (/) displays a set of commands you can use to create your content, allowing you to access all note-taking options quickly.

The following are some typical note-taking options:
