What is Notion?
Claiming 20 million users worldwide, Notion.so is an all-in-one digital workplace. It combines various collaborative tools for note-taking, task management, project management (around a kanban board) or even storage and exchange of documents.
Why do I need a Notion account?
Contact Form 7 Notion Add-On uses Notion’s API to send data. Creating an account on Notion is free. Once logged in your contact, you can create and get the API key from this page (don’t forget to share it with your database).
Do I have to pay to use the add-on and use Notion?
Our add-on is completely free.
Notion.so offers a free plan, called Notion Individual. It targets small teams of up to 6 people. Allowing the creation of an unlimited number of pages and blocks, Notion Individual gives access to the platform’s API.
Depending on your needs, several paid subscriptions allow you to unlock these limitations while giving access to more advanced features (see prices).
How are my columns and fields synchronized?
You don’t have to do anything, the synchronization is automatic. Make sure you have created your database and your Notion column names before linking them to your form fields. If you don’t see it, wait 1 minute. For performance reasons, Notion columns are cached for one minute.
Why I don’t see my columns in the selection list
Only columns that are compatible with the linked field are displayed.
Moreover, some column types are not supported (see Troubleshooting)
Integrations don’t have access to any pages (or databases) in the workspace at first. A user must share specific pages with an integration in order for those pages to be accessed using the API. This helps keep you and your team’s information in Notion secure.
Start from a new or existing page in your workspace. Insert a new database, give it a title. Click on the Share button and use the selector to find your integration by its name, then click Invite. Full infos here (Step 2)
Which CF7 versions is it compatible with?
This add-on requires at least version 5.5.3 of Contact Form 7 and has recently been tested successfully up to version 5.6.
