You can now import your Notion pages, subpages or workspace to Coda, to unlock the power of API-supported capabilities, third-party packs, and publishing to docgallery.com.


💡 Tip: If you use Safari, update your General Settings so that the “Open ‘safe’ files after downloading” option is unchecked before you get started. Otherwise, Safari will automatically unzip your Notion export, which will hinder you from importing to Coda.


  1. Select your top-level page (which will include its subpages)
  2. Click the 3 dot menu in the upper right corner
  3. Select Export

4. From the export menu, select your format as HMTL

5. Indicate whether you’d like to include subpages or not.


💡 Tip: We recommend including subpages, as all tables in Notion rely on data from subpages. Exporting without these will prevent your tables from importing to Coda.

6. This will export your work as a zipped file, and download it to your browser; you’ll also get an email with the download link


Once you have your export, you can import the file into Coda as a new doc, or from an existing doc.


For a new doc (not recommended if you have people references in your export):

  1. Navigate to your doc list at coda.io/docs
  2. Click the + New Doc button
  3. Select Notion
  4. Click the Select file button
  5. Choose your zipped file, and click Open

If you’d like to import content into an existing doc using the Explore Panel, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Explore text in the upper right corner of your doc
  2. Search for “Notion,” and click the option that appears under “Import”
  3. Click the Select file button
  4. Choose your zipped file, and click Open


If you’d like to import content into an existing doc using the / command, follow these steps:

  1. Type /notion anywhere on your page
  2. Select the “Notion” option for import
  3. Click the Select file button
  4. Choose your zipped file, and click Open


Some things to know before you go:

  • Until an API is available from Notion, the HTML export is the best option for overall import fidelity.
  • HTML exports do not support formulas, filtering, and alternative database views, so they won’t come through “as is” in your imports to Coda; however, Coda will retain the values and data, allowing you to apply new formulas or filters after importing.
  • Share your doc (even if it’s blank!) with the referenced people before importing so that you can retain @-references from your export
