The template has four primary databases — Inbox, Objectives, Task List, and Slip box.

Database : Task Lists

Dashboard

Now coming to the Dashboard, it’s a simple page that provides access to a list of all sub pages (left column) and shows the task list in the calendar view. Also, there is another reference table below that lists all inbox items without a tag, so that you can tag and provide some context! — (Notion, Web Clipper needs this as a feature, like Evernote.)

Other “Customization” I do

The Notion is not a replacement for your to-do app. It’s software that lets you build your system. Quoting Clay Skipper, “Really, it doesn’t matter how your system works. It only matters that you have a system.”

I use that status to Sort the pages, so that old Objectives are archived at the bottom

Epic works as a super set of all objectives. Same is used to divide Personal Tasks and Office Tasks.
