Using data: Intro to databases

Get started with databases, one of Notion’s most powerful features for organization, by creating a content calendar for a marketing team.


Databases might look like the typical spreadsheet, but they’re way more powerful. Unlike spreadsheets, databases can be filled with dynamic, relational data.

  • Notion databases have many different properties, which can label pieces of data.

    • Some unique property types include dates, emails, and URLs.

    • These properties can be used to sort and filter the information in your database.

  • Each database entry is also it’s own page.

  • Database blocks can either be created in-line or as their own page.
