In-App Notifications

Welcome to the most appreciated Notion update from last week — custom notifications with database automations!

How does it work?

  1. Access your database
  2. Create a new database automation (in the database settings)
  3. Name it & select your trigger (e.g., new page added, or status changed)
  4. In the “Action” section, select “Send notification to”
  5. If you select “Specific people”, you can now choose which person(s) (including the “Page creator”) to notify and add a custom message

Pro tip: to learn everything about database automation, check out my tutorial on my website.
