With +3,000 apps available in Zapier, the scenarios and possibilities are endless, and it's still in beta. Imagine what we can achieve when it reaches its full potential! 🤯
How to get started with Notion API? 📝
First you go to the Notion Developers portal, then, in the top right corner, click on My Integrations. Add a new integration by clicking on + New Integration.
Fill in the Integration name and add an image to keep you integrations organized. And choose the workspace where you'll be using this integration. (Important)
After that, you'll get Internal Integration Token. This is the key that you will need to use to connect your app with services like Zapier.
You can see and manage all your integrations by going to your notion workspace > settings & Members > integrations.
Here's a quick video to show you how to create a Notion API for Zapier
Few tools to help you get the job done 🧰
If you're a developer, you can build your own integrations using. If not, here are the best tools to help you automate your workflow:
– Zapier ― Notion-ready, and my personal choice.
– Automate.io. ― Notion-ready, and it's a great alternative to Zapier. Just check if it covers your use-case first.
– IFTT ― Isn't Notion-ready but contacted them, and they said that they're working on it. (Best cheap alternative but not so powerful)
– Integromat ― Notion-ready but supports HTTP, and it's a good service overall.
– APIFuse ― Isn't Notion ready but a promising automation service for Saas with a lot of coming soon automation.
That's all. I hope you're now ready to start using Notion API to achieve more and work less. Please remember that the main purpose of using Notion Startup OS is to focus on your business goals and how to achieve them. Automation makes it 10x easier, so always think of automation first.
