How to Sync and Merge Multiple Notion Pages with Automated 2-Way Updates

How to Sync and Merge Multiple Notion Pages with Automated 2-Way Updates

If your organization uses multiple Notion workspaces, databases and pages, there’s a good change you’ve had to find a way to export data from one to another. For a one-time Notion export, there are plenty of options out there, but if you want an on-going, continual transfer of information that keeps both synced pages up-to-date in real-time? There aren’t as many solutions available on the market as you might think.

Luckily, Unito’s 2-way integration for Notion allows you to connect pages between databases and workspaces quickly and easily with real-time updates end-to-end.

Add Unito 2-way Sync as a connection for each page you want to include in your flows. Otherwise, Unito won’t be able to detect your databases in Notion. Here’s more from Notion’s knowledge base on adding connections.

Troubleshooting your Notion integration

If you need help setting up your Notion integration, you can browse this guide on adding Notion to Unito or you can find a more general overview of this Notion integration here.

Note: Only one Notion user per workspace can connect to Unito. So make sure you create a Notion user specifically for Unito and give it access to all pages and databases in your workspace.

Step 1. Connect each Notion database to Unito

Now, you can navigate to the Unito App and select +Create Flow. On the next screen, select Start Here to connect each Notion database and page.

When you’re ready, click Confirm.

Step 2. Choose a flow direction for creating new data in Notion

Your data can sync either from one Notion page to the other, or bidirectionally. This determines how manual activity in one page will automatically create and update information in another.

Click Confirm when you’ve chosen a flow direction.

Step 3. Filter out unrelated Notion pages from syncing

This is where you can set up conditions to filter out Notion data that you don’t want to sync with the other page. If you don’t set any rules, then all Notion data will sync over. A great way to filter information is through the use of labels or drop down fields.

Select Add a new trigger to get started.

Here's a preview of the rules you can set for your Notion flow with Unito

In the above example, we chose to sync Notion pages with the tag: “Project Development” only. Here is what our completed demo’s table of rules looks like:

While rules are intended to set triggers for when and how data should be synced, choosing fields determines what information is synced. You’ll effectively tell Unito how fields in each Notion page relate to each other, even if they’re named differently.

First, you have to choose between auto-mapping your field table or starting from scratch. With auto-mapping, Unito will essentially attempt to set up a template for you to start from.

If you select auto-map, you can still change any mappings you want or add custom fields. If you’d rather DIY and know exactly how you want your fields mapped, start from scratch.

Click + Add mapping to create a new pair of fields, then Select a field for each tool and find the fields you wish to link between Notion pages.
