How to Make a Page a Template in Notion

To make a page a template in Notion is one of the productivity tool's most powerful features as it allows you to share something you've built with your friends, coworkers, or if you're planning on selling it. But there are a few steps you'll need to take in order to make it work.

In this short tutorial, I'll go through all of these steps so that you fully understand how to turn a page into a template in Notion.

How to Make a Page a Template in Notion

1/ Set up your Notion page

Before you turn a page into a template, you need to ensure a few things so that people can duplicate it properly.

First, make sure it looks good on all types of screens (mobiles, iPad, laptop, etc.). You never know which device people will use, so test it on all of them.

Then, and most importantly, make sure all databases exist in your template. If you use a linked view of a database and the master database is not included in the template, it will not show up when people duplicate your template.

2/ Share your Notion page

Once you've finished setting up your Notion page, go to the parent page of your template. If you go to one of the child pages, people won't have access to your entire template.

Then, click the "Share" button at the top right of your page, then "Publish", then "Publish to web".

You'll find your direct site link, which is the link from which people can duplicate your template.

3/ Make it duplicable

Before sharing your link, make sure that the "Duplicate as template" option is activated. It's activated by default, but make sure it's on. When deactivated, people will access your template as a website but won't be able to download it to their own workspaces.

4/ Share your public link

Finally, copy the direct site link and share it with whoever needs it. If you're planning on selling your Notion template, this is the link your customers need to receive in order to duplicate your template.

Turning a page into a template in Notion allows you to easily share your structured content with others, whether it's for collaboration or selling purposes. By following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can ensure that your template is accessible, duplicable, and ready to be used by others. Start sharing your Notion templates and make the most out of this powerful feature!
