How to Export Notion

Notion allows users to export their content in various formats such as PDF, CSV, HTML, and Markdown. This functionality is useful for backing up data, sharing information outside of Notion, or for use in other applications. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to export your content from Notion.

How to Export Notion to PDF

To export a Notion page or database to PDF, follow these steps:

  1. Click the '•••' icon at the upper right corner of any Notion page.
  2. Select 'Export' from the dropdown menu.
  3. In the pop-up window, choose 'PDF' from the 'Export format' dropdown.
  4. Specify if you'd like to export everything or exclude files and images in the 'Include content' dropdown.
  5. Select the 'Page format' and adjust the scale if necessary.
  6. Click 'Export' and choose where to save the file on your device.
2. Select 'Export' from the dropdown menu.

If you're on a Business or Enterprise Plan, you can also include subpages in your export, which will generate a zip file containing all nested pages as PDF files along with folders of images and other assets.

How to Export Notion Database

For exporting databases, Notion provides options to export as CSV files, which can be useful for data analysis or transferring data to other applications. Here's how to export a database:

  1. Navigate to the database page you wish to export.
  2. Click the '•••' icon at the top right and select 'Export'.
  3. In the 'Export format' dropdown, choose 'Markdown & CSV'.
  4. If desired, toggle on 'Include subpages' to include data from subpages in your export.
  5. Click 'Export' to download a ZIP file containing your CSV data.
3. In the 'Export format' dropdown, choose 'Markdown & CSV'.

This method is applicable for full-page databases, and the resulting CSV file can be opened with spreadsheet applications like Excel or Google Sheets for further analysis or manipulation.

How to Export Notion Table to Excel

Exporting a Notion table to Excel involves exporting the table as a CSV file and then importing it into Excel:

  1. Follow the steps mentioned above to export your Notion database as a CSV file.
  2. Open Excel and go to 'File' > 'Open' and select the CSV file you exported from Notion.
  3. Excel will import your CSV data, which you can then save as an Excel file for further use.

This process allows you to leverage Excel's powerful data analysis and visualization tools with your Notion data.

Exporting content from Notion is a straightforward process that can be tailored to fit various needs, whether it's for data analysis, sharing information in a universally accessible format, or backing up your work.
