How to create charts from your Notion database
Ever felt like you weren’t realizing the full potential of your Notion databases? If so, you’re not alone. That’s why GRID’s Notion integration makes so much sense.
Connecting your Notion database to GRID lets you build beautiful, living charts & visualizations. The next step? Embed all that goodness back into your Notion workspace.
It’s never been easier to create interactive charts and visualizations from your Notion database. Follow the 4 simple steps below to learn how to get the most out of your Notion data!
In your Notion account navigate to the left corner and go to ‘Settings & members’ and then ‘My connections’. Locate GRID and click ‘Connect’. If you don’t have a GRID account, you’ll get a pop up window to create an account. If you have an account and are logged in to GRID your account will now be connected to Notion.
Next, head over to GRID, create a new document and select ‘Add existing data’. Click the Notion icon and select the pages you want to sync to GRID.
Then select the database you want to connect to GRID.
Now you’re all set! You should now see your chosen database in the data panel. Note that your database appears in alphabetical order in GRID, so it might look a bit different than on your Notion page.
If you want to sort or group and aggregate your database, we recommend combining your database with GRID Sheets. You can use common spreadsheet functions like Sort() to sort the database. To group and aggregate, we recommend using the Query function. And, to make things even easier, you can use our AI formula assistant to generate the formulas you need!
Now let’s put your visualization back into Notion. There are a couple of ways to do this:
Copy the link to your GRID document and paste it to your Notion page
Copy the link to your GRID document and use the /embed function in Notion
If you only wish to embed a part of your document (one chart for example) you can click on the chart, go to the embed tab on the far right, and copy the embed link. Now paste that chart’s link to Notion or use the /embed function.
