Notion 2.10 with Timeline and others
Notion introduced Timeline views , bug fixes and some more feature updates on November 11,2020 . The community was quite excited and around eleven videos have been published on the new features and how one should put them to use. The down side was the fact that Notion had put a maximum of three timeline views for the free and Pro version . This restrictive policy on paid personal accounts did not make any sense to me and several users have expressed displeasure on this to which the company has stated that they would review the same after some more time.
