How to Create Notion Items with Make (Formerly Known as Integromat)
Hello and welcome to another X-Ray Tech automation tutorial. I’m Tom Nassar, the automation alchemist, and today we are to learn how to Create Notion Items with Make (Integromat). In previous tutorials, we had discussed how automation can simplify your job. Today we are going to create Notion pages and database items with the help of Make (formerly known as Integromat).
Prerequisites For Using Make
Before we get started, make sure you have a Notion database ready to add items. If you don’t, it’s straightforward. You need to create one by deciding what type of information you’d like to track, and then set up the database in Notion. The good news is, with Notion, you can add whatever fields and information you’d like, so it’s totally customizable.
Setting Up Make as an Integration in Notion
Setting up Make as an integration is an important step. You need to log in to your Notion account, click on the settings, and select integrations. Here, you create a new integration, provide it with an easily identifiable name. As a pro tip, you could also provide it with a unique image to quickly identify it. After creating the integration, be sure to copy the token and paste it in Make when you start creating a scenario. Connecting your accounts is as simple as that!
Tailoring Automation With Make
Next, you choose a module for gathering data to jump-start this automation process. In today’s example, we are going to use a table in Airtable that collects responses to our contact us form. So, the automation will initiate every time someone submits the form.
Once the trigger module is ready, we add a Notion module, and here, we select ‘create database item’ and enter the database ID. Once you’ve let Make connect to your database, you can proceed to map your data fields.
Now, all that is left is to refine how the data is presented. I would recommend adding page content to capture specific item details, such as customer requests. You can use a content block type (e.g., heading 1, paragraph, etc.) and specify the type of content (text, mention, or equation) within it. Let’s just add a static h1 that titles ‘request content,’ followed by the client’s request. Parallelly, doing a round of test run to ensure all of the modules are in harmony is a good practice.
Creating Pages With Make
Creating pages with Make (Integromat) is much like creating database items, with key differences here and there. For instance, you add most of your information as content objects when creating a page, which might feel a bit tedious to set up. However, Make comes with an aim to simplify, making it your go-to guide for all needs!
You can now confidently automate the process of creating Notion items with Make, and leverage it to keep track of important data.
