Bardeen quick-start guide

Get started with Notion Beta API

Notion is currently in the beta phase with their APIs, and to get Bardeen working, we will need to jump through a couple of hurdles. From there, everything will be smooth like butter.
1

Create an API bot

Open notion.so/my-integrations and click on the "New integration" button.
You have to do this only once.
2

Copy Internal Integration Token

Copy the generated token by clicking on show and then copy button next to the token.
You have to do this only once.
3

Activate Notion

Launch Bardeen with the shortcut (OPT+B) and type "Activate Notion" and execute by pressing ENTER.
You have to do this only once.
4

Paste Internal Integration Token

Select the input field and paste (CMD+V) the token into it and confirm by clicking on the submit button.
You have to do this only once.
5

Give this bot access to specific databases in Notion.

Go to your database and click on "Share" in the top right navigation menu. Then add the bot you created before.
You have to do this for every database you want to use
6

Give Bardeen access to specific databases in Notion:

Launch Bardeen with the shortcut (OPT+B) and type "Give access to Notion database from current URL" and execute.
You have to do this for every database you want to use
Small, but important note on Data Fields
To add data to Notion, you need to make sure the column names in your Notion database match the column names from the data you are adding.

For example, when you pull Google Calendar events, they will have a specific format such as “dateTime.”
Unfortunately, those column names can’t be edited yet, so your Notion database needs to match Bardeen’s exactly (case sensitive). This will be soon solved with our visual workflow builder.
