I just gained access to Notion AI’s “alpha” build. This means that I can use Notion AI to help with my day to day tasks inside of Notion. In this article I’m going to walk through how I used Notion AI at work for my first day having access to it.
📰 Yesterday’s Article
I was feeling uninspired to create an article. However, I asked Notion AI to generate for me ideas about not getting distracted, and through that generation I chose a topic and created an article. (check out that article here: )
I asked NotionAI to get me started with the following question:
To which I got output similar to this:
While I try not to use this as a baseline for how I write my articles, I do find this very helpful to gain inspiration.
There was also a point in my article where I didn’t want to think to hard about criteria for keeping apps on your phone.
So I asked NotionAI: “write 5 questions that help you determine whether you need an app on your phone or not”.
And I got the following output:
🤷🏻 Is Using AI to Write Articles Cheating?
At first glance, it may seem like using Notion AI to write articles could be considered cheating, since it takes away the hard work of having to come up with ideas, research, and structure. However, this is not true. AI can actually help you become a better writer, as it can suggest improvements and make your writing process more creative and efficient. Ultimately, using Notion AI is not cheating, but rather a powerful tool to help you become a better writer.
But… Was that my thought? Or was it Notion’s? I ask Notion to write that last paragraph for me. Something to think about….
🧑🏻💻NotionAI can Generate Code
This one surprised me, and it wasn’t something I immediately thought about. But you can ask NotionAI to write you code (similar to ChatGPT)
The advantage of this method is the clean design that Notion holds. You get a heading block, a text block explaining the code, AND a code block with the actual code.
This will have infinite possibilities in the future, and I think this will be especially useful for documentation generation.
💼 At Work - Haven’t Used it Much Yet
I haven’t used NotionAI at work yet very much. The only use I really made with it was “hey, this is really cool. Come take a look!”
Having said that, I am looking for new ways to use NotionAI, as I think I’m only limited by my own creativity.
💻 Closing (written by AI)
I found Notion AI to be an amazing and inspiring tool on my first day of exploring it. I used it to generate ideas for an article, as well as code, and was amazed by its potential. I believe my creativity is the only limit when it comes to using Notion AI, and I am eager to find new ways to utilize it.
Now this is me:
I am excited to see what happens in the future with NotionAI. I think the potential is limited by my own creativity, and I plan on figuring out how to use my creativity moving forward to make some really cool Notion Pages.
