Build Databases Faster with Notion AI

Did you know you can quickly build a database filled with data using Notion AI? It’s super simple:

  1. Summon Notion AI (space bar).
  2. Prompt it to create a table and specify the columns and data that you need (e.g., create a table of the five biggest private space companies and add as columns their founder(s), country of origin, founding year, and market cap).
  3. Notion will create a simple table with all this data.
  4. Select the first row (the one with the column names) and enable “Header row”.
  5. Select the entire table and click “Turn into database”.

This is super useful for quickly creating databases already filled with data. Don't forget to transform your properties into the corresponding format (all properties are created as text by default).
