    A very good introduction to what I think will become a favorite product. Lisa is well spoken and knowledgeable about this topic. Notion will help me eliminate lots of paper notes. I will use it first for genealogy and also for other things.

    Always learn new tools from Lisa

    Another new toy! Thanks, Lisa.

    Been enjoy Geoff’s webinar’s for years. Keep up the good work.


    Excellent presentation and knowledge about the subject matter. Pace of presentation and slides were great. I’m going to try Notion!!

    Excellent presenter. I always learn from Lisa.

    Excellent! Can’t wait to try it!

    Excellent!!! I’m definitely going to try out Notion. I’d never heard of it before. Thanks a bunch Lisa!

    Fantastic. I simply can not wait to really dive into this program and possibly eliminate the need for multiple programs! I’ll be keeping an eye out for the ability to join the Facebook group, as well!

    General about the program, not as much for how to implement for genealogy. Good overall.

    good info need to try it thank you

    Good info. I’ve committed to Evernote but will explore Notion as another option.

    Great as always. Really informative.

    great info

    Great information that was well presented. Thanks!

    Great information. I think this will be an app I will use because I was finding that I had too many different apps to use. It will be nice to have them all combined into one.

    Great topic. Always looking for efficient ways to organize and take advantage of new functionality. Excellent presenter

    Great webinar giving some very interesting evaluations of the noted apps.

    Had to leave due to the arrival of the gentleman whose is fixing my dryer. I do plan to watch the recorded webinar.

    I am not as familiar as I need to be to use this app. It looks like it would be a great option for those who are adept at using these technological organizing tools. I’m just not there. Through my eyes, the talk was full of into, but a little too fast for my ilk. But thank you for introducing this to me. It makes me more knowledgeable about it when suggesting apps.

    I did not feel that it suited my needs.

    I like her webinars…..always

    I love hearing about new products – I am getting bogged down and perhaps this is the time to get stuff in one spot!

    I think this sounds like something that might help me get organized over several platforms I have. Thanks so much. I always appreciate what you have to say, Lisa.

    I’ll give it a try!

    I’m anxious to delve into these sites. They are new to me. Very good . Thank you.

    Inspiring webinar. It generated a lot of possibilities, both with genealogy and volunteering and professionally and personally and hobbies. You get the idea. Of course each person will figure out if it really is a benefit as we try it.

    interesting comparisons between various tools. I will review her webinar on evernote and trello (which I use)

    Interesting concept program worth trying it out but it would be nice to see how it works step by step with a case study or research question

    Interesting to learn about another program and method for organizing though I’m not sure that I’ll try. I currently use Excel and Word stored on the computer and like the ‘security’ of that and I do have backup copies of everything.

    Interesting topic as was brand new to me as I never heard of it before

    It was a lot of info in one webinar.

    Lisa always does a great job, regardless of the topic. I wanted to hear this, but I’m not convinced I have the energy to tackle the learning curve necessary to master this.

    Lisa Alzo is a great speaker, and she puts a lot of effort into her webinars and in person events. I will definitely try a free account on Notion and see how it goes. Thank you.

    Lisa introduces us to new ideas for sure! Now, to join FB group, too.

    Lisa is great at coming up with these genealogy tools for us.

    Lisa used some terms I’m not familiar with, like “kanban.” Would be nice to have definitions.

    Lisa was great. I can’t wait to sign up for NOTION.

    Mooooving right along . . . Sounds like a good app! Lisa explained it very well – easy to understand, especially the comparisons.

    Never used Notion before and would really like a good organizing type program.

    new information

    Nice job, thanks for the info.

    Nice options for storing information

    Notion is a very interesting product, but probably not one that I plan to use. Nonetheless, great presentation by Lisa!

    Notion seems like a possible tool. Will try and play with Notiom.

    Probably will never use it but it is nice to know it is available and what it can do for an organized person

    Really want to look into it. Thanks

    Thank you for introducing me to this tool.

    Thanks for the informative video.

    Useful, practical, not shying away from comparisons with other apps.

    Very in depth and informative. Also nice note to refer to upcoming webinars as well as where to find wealth of information.

    Very informative webinar!!

    Very informative, well-done.

    Very informative. looking forward to trying out the program

    Very interesting and the session has opened up my thoughts to do things differently. I am in the process of signing up to notion. I hope the cow is safe!

    Very interesting and worth a try.

    Very interesting presentation. Had never heard of Notion. It sounds promising. I like the way Lisa presented the information and used the screen shots and live demo.

    very interesting topic – will look into the app.

    Very interesting, I had internet issues so I’m glad I can re watch it.

    Very interesting. Have not used any of the tools that were mentioned. So, now need to learn more. Thank you.

    Well presented, but not something I would use.
