Notion currently doesn't supports the use of Markdown tables via clipboard copy paste. For example if you copy/paste this format will not work in the current version of Notion:
| | Boston | New York | Chicago | London |
| --- | --- | --- | --- | --- |
| | | | | |
| | | | | |
| | | | | |
You can't simply copy a table and paste it in. However, You can import a Markdown file that has the same table and it will import perfectly!
Notion supports importing from CSV, Trello, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Evernote and more!
So you can easily get your data into Notion and start doing some cool things.
Lots of good choices available when selecting the column type
The concept of tables is different in Notion than Evernote.
In Evernote tables are just a static way to display data.
In Notion, you can do more with the data such as filter the table, or sort columns,
Notion also has the ability to use formulas within tables. For example, can have a Table column that outputs the number of days someone has started working at my company - that way I can note personal milestones. This is the formula that I use:
dateBetween(now(), prop("Started"), "days")
There are a lot of formulas that you can add, check out the official Notion Formulas page for some cool options.
Notion Tables is a cool way to get more control of your data. Learn more about how Notion Database works in the Database 101: build and view guide.

This July I plan to discontinue paying for Evernote. There are many reasons why, but the main reason is that I don?t use it enough to justify the cost. So I am looking for an alternative solution that may make managing some of my data easier.
Can Notion really replace Evernote?
There are four main reasons why I am considering Notion:
Over the next five weeks I?ll look at Notion as a potential alternative to Evernote.
Many people have been sharing how they use Notion. Here's 10 Notion Templates To Inspire Your Use - Keep Productive - Medium. This is good to see how some people use Notion.
If I stay with Evernote, it would cost me $34.99 per year. As I am still on the Evernote Plus plan. The current Premium plan would be $95.88.
If I switch to Notion, it will cost me $48.00 a year or $4 a month.
Notion is a cheaper solution if Evernote discontinues the Plus Plan. Otherwise, I don't know if the features in Notion are really worth the extra cost. That's what I'll be investigating all month long.
