How to Build Your Own Notion Finance Tracker
Here are the steps to building your own Notion finance tracker:
→ Set up your Notion page: Create a new page in Notion and name it "Finance Tracker." This will contain the dashboard for your finance tracker.
Income & Expense
→ Create 2 tables: one called “Income”, and the other called “Expenses”.
→ Add the following properties:
- Amount: set up the currency of your choice (click the “123” button on the left)
- Date: set up the date format (click the date, then click “date format & timezone”)
- Type: create different income categories (salary, side hustle, reimbursement, etc.)
→ Create a new “Months” database & select Gallery as the layout
→ Add the following properties
- Relation to Income
- Relation to Expenses
- Rollup that gets the Sum of all Income
- Rollup that gets the Sum of all Expenses
- Balance formula that calculates the difference between Income & Expenses
- Labels: Income, Expenses & Balance
- Formulas that get the data from the Income & Expenses rollups (they will be used for the Years database, but should be hidden in the Months database)
→ Create a new template & call it [new month]
- Add 2 columns
- On the left, add a linked view of the Income database
- On the right, add a linked view of the Expenses database
- Filter both databases by “Month contains [new month]”
- Replicate the same process, but that time adding “Months” as a relation
- Extract the Sum of Income, Expenses & Balance using rollups
- Don’t forget the labels
Use the layout below as an example for you own dashboard.
