With our Notion direct integration, it is now easy to integrate your forms. Currently, we support the following actions:

  • Add new page to a database
  • Embed new page in a page
  • Add content to page

The quick way to create an integrated form for a Notion database

Our Notion integration is a supported Quick Integration - which means that you can simply choose a Notion database from your account, and automatically pull in all the columns from that database as questions into your form, and Paperform will automagically set up the direct integration for you as well.

To use the quick integration, simply go to a new line in the editor, and type /notion then press enter, and follow the prompts to set up the integration.

Once it's been created - you can go and modify the integration at any time under After Submissions → Integrations & Webhooks.

Show me the long way.

  1. In the form editor, go to After Submissions → Integrations & Webhooks

  2. Under Direct Integrations, click Notion, and choose from the list of possible actions.

  3. Click the "Add Account +" Button to connect your Notion account. There are two ways of connecting to Notion

    a) Connect Paperform directly with Notion (Recommended). Note that this can only be done once per workspace.

    b) Connect a private integration with Paperform.

  4. Follow the prompts to complete setting up the action.

You can remove or rename your Notion account at any time in your account settings.

Common Questions

I can't see a page (or database) in the integration.

In Notion integrations are treated just like other users - they don't automatically get access to all of your pages. However, you can give them access easily by sharing the page with them via the "Share" menu in Notion, just like you would share with a teammate.

How do I format page contents?

Paperform has experimental support for rich content when adding content into Notion. To do this, content needs to be written in the lightweight markup language called Markdown that we've extended to support some of Notion's specific content types.

Not all content is supported, currently, you can add:

  • Headings # this is a h1
  • Bullet points - this is a bullet point
  • Number points 1. This is a numbered point
  • Todo items - [ ] This is a todo
  • Complete todo items - [x] This is complete
  • Formatted text This is *italic* *bold* ~striked~ `inline code`
  • Collapsable points > Content should be collapsed under me.

Any markdown that is unsupported will either fall back to plain text, or not be included in the page.

When I try and connect Paperform it says it's already connected to my workspace?

Notion integrations can only be connected to a workspace once. So if you or another admin on your Notion workspace to a Paperform account it cannot be added again unless it has been removed from the workspace in notion.

Alternatively, you can create a private integration for your workspace, and connect with that instead of using the standard connection.
