We all have recurring tasks in our lives, such as daily habits or work-related tasks like Weekly reports. And if you want your Task Management System to reflect these recurring tasks, this Autobook is for you.
This automation helps you create tasks periodically on a Notion database, aka, your Task Management System.
For this to work, you need to follow these steps.
First, you will need to set up a Notion database for your tasks. You can create one from scratch or duplicate our template optimized for this use case.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this Autobook saved to your autobooks.
To do this, hover over the Autobook card and “Open Autobook in Builder.” Then, customize the Initial Trigger “When a schedule event occurs” to the frequency you need.
Then we need to map data to customize your recurrent tasks.
To do this, edit the Action 2: “Add Notion page”. Enter your Notion database and map the data fields using “custom field mapping.”
On “Field mapping”, you can personalize the fields for this Task. For instance, you can set up the Task’s “Name”, “Priority”, “Status” and other fields you’d want to set up.
Once done, save the Autobook and close the builder.
Click on the Autobook card. You will be asked to specify the date range for the events that you want to copy.
Now you can save the Autobook and activate it. You’ll need to specify which Database you want and it will start running from there.
