3 tips

1/ Create charts directly within Notion

I just stumbled on this tweet from @michal_creates, which blew my mind: you can generate pie charts directly within Notion, without using external tools.

  1. Create a simple table & import your data
  2. Summon Notion AI to transform the table into code
  3. Select “Mermaid” as the code language

If you want more control over your chart, you can still use tools such as DataJumbo (affiliate) or NotionCharts.

2/ Transparent icons

Notion just changed the look of their “filled page” icons: I find them much better looking now.

But if you still don’t like them, I have an easy trick for you!

All you have to do is to add a “transparent image” in the icon field. You can create one using Figma or Photoshop, or you can download it directly from Wikipedia.

3/ People To Notion

If you’re looking for a quick way to enrich your CRM, here’s a new tool for you: People To Notion. It’s a Chrome Extension that allows you to add Linkedin profiles to a Notion database, in 1 click.

Awesome, right?

2 Resources

1/ Brand new Updates inbox

Notion just released small improvements on their Updates inbox:

📩 Receive notifications when mentioned
💌 Reply directly from the inbox
✉️ Mark notifications as read (or unread)
📨 Archive them when you’re done

2/ Save Voice Notes to Notion using Siri

If you use Siri & want to add notes on the go, without having to open Notion & wait for the app to load - I have something for you. I’m not talking about audio files. I’m talking about the transcription of your audio - this is pretty amazing!

Here’s a 20-minute video tutorial from Matthias Frank, it’s quite easy to set up, and once it’s done, all you have to do is to summon Siri with your custom prompt 😊
