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.
