The Notion Community has excitedly been waiting for the arrival of buttons - so here is a quick tutorial on how to use buttons in Notion.
I’ve followed this post up with some use cases for Notion buttons. You can read that here.
So, how to use Buttons in Notion - here is a quick rundown
As always with everything in Notion it starts with the forward slash.
Type the forward slash, followed by the word “button”.
Now click that and another menu will appear where you can define what you want that button to do specifically:
You can insert blocks to the page that you’re on, you can add pages to a database or edit existing pages in a database for example.
Now I’m going to select insert blocks, which will bring up the next step of the button. This is the step where I now have to tell it WHAT exactly I want the button to do when it’s clicked.
In this menu I can now for example tell it to add a headline called Morning Routine, and then some to-do list items of things that may be included in a morning routine:
Now we’re going to go up to the top of this box, we’re going to click the emoji to select an icon for our button, we’re going to type the name of the button into the “New Button” Box and we’re going to click done:
The button has no appeared on the page, and if you click it, you will see the items that we typed in being added to the page.
These buttons are absolutely amazingly practical because they allow you to complete multiple steps in one go.
