  • Notion templates will help you jump-start page creation, and inspire you to create your own Notion workflows.

  • Add a template to your workspace via the Templates button in the sidebar, or when creating a new page.

  • We specifically recommend using our database-powered templates: To-do list, Projects & tasks, Meetings, and Docs.

  • Remember that database entries are fully functional Notion pages, capable of hosting all content types, as well as other Notion pages.

  • Databases boast properties, which are pieces of information about each database entry. They can be of various types like text, numbers, dates, or people.

    • Relation properties allow entries from one database to be linked to entries from another database. The Projects & tasks templates use relation properties to link tasks to their associated projects.

    • The Projects template has a completion property, which calculates the percentage of tasks marked as Done.

  • Consult the Notion Template Gallery by clicking on More from the Community at the bottom of the Templates sidebar.
