Notion Keyboard Shortcuts [Mac & PC]: 10x Your Workflow With 100+ Commands

Here’s a table of over 100 Notion Keyboard Shortcuts that you can start using today to speed up your workflow and get things done in Notion quicker…

Roughly a year and a half ago, I took the plunge and went ALL IN on Notion. While Google Drive retains a presence in my workflow, Notion now houses all my projects, thoughts, SOPs, and future plans. I have myriad Notion templates setup. The initial adjustment period of a week or two was a small price to pay for what now feels like a seamless extension of my cognitive processes.

My workspace in Notion is as I want it—every new piece of information finds its rightful place, categorized with precision. The impact on my productivity and workflow? Nothing short of phenomenal. This newfound command over my work has bolstered my confidence in managing my team and our collective projects. The ripple effects on our collective productivity have been tangible and significant.

What makes Notion AI remarkable is its capability to evolve and adapt to your data over time. It performs tasks such as content creation, email drafting, SOP formulation, and database analysis—all within the confines of your Notion application. The more you use it, the more it understands your needs and your team’s dynamics.

For this reason, I would argue that it is well worth paying for Notion in order to unlock all of its latent capabilities.

Learning Notion’s keyboard shortcuts can further streamline your workflow and get you doing things even faster. There’s loads too, but I’d just start out with the Notion keyboard shortcuts you find most relevant to you.

With a bit of practice, you’ll be navigating through Notion like a pro, saving time and effort, and boosting productivity even further.

So, for all Notion users, I highly recommend investing a small amount of time learning some of Notion’s keyboard shortcuts. It’s a small step towards a significant productivity boost. And here’s a list of over 100 Notion keyboard shortcuts to get you started.
