Notion is a free online document editor to create interactive documents with collaboration feature. You can easily create article pages, to-do lists, personal notes, project boards, and much more in no time. Unlike other document editors such as Stypi, Document.Editor, Free Editor, Ompad, and more, pages in “Notion” are made from different blocks. You can view all the building blocks by moving the mouse towards the right of the screen such as to-dos, code snippets, files, comments, videos, link, quotes, etc. It supports complete drag-and-drop feature which means you can drag-and-drop all the building blocks into your document.
No more hassle of organizing different folders for your documents as this application allows you to drop a page inside another and let it grow as a tree. Now the best part of this application is the real-time collaboration feature. You can invite other using the unique URL or via email to collaborate and work together simultaneously. It also lets you see which collaborator is working on which section of the document. Ultimately, it is an amazing document editor with a complete package of powerful tools.

Step 2: After placing blocks on the canvas, you can rearrange them by dragging them up and down. It also lets you put a block inside of another by dragging and placing them.
