Build a Notion dashboard with a single formula. This setup is designed for users who want a read only dashboard to compartmentalize deadlines in three different views: Tasks for today, Tasks this week, and Tasks for later. These views use Notion features like Timeline, Boardview, Grouping, Formula, and Math Block.
There is a new Notion feature in the block menu. Navigate to Basics for a plain table. To quickly find the table in the block menu, type “/ table”. Basic tables are exactly what the name suggests. There’s nothing fancy here - just a plain text table to breakdown ideas or present information without the constraints of a database. Here are some unique ways to use them.

Notion's latest update is one of its biggest. Now users can group data in more ways than the classic boardview. Almost every database view supports grouping by date, formula, text, and more. And even more cool is the ability to create sub-groups in boardview. Here is how to get started with grouping and create neat timetables. This is just scratching the surface!
Thoughtful prioritization is the practice of assigning precise conditions to a priority level. Every priority level describes the difficulty, urgency, and impact of a task. Essentially, if you are using a priority tag property inside Notion, here is a formula to help systematize priority assignment with precise conditions.
Using the Relation property, a Notion user can view all of their tags for notes in a separate database. That database of tags can also be arranged in a Gallery. In this tutorial I show you how to analyze multiple tags in one tag wall. For instance, your notebook may have a tag for understanding alongside a contextual tag.
Using this dataset in csv format I was able to quickly import a world atlas into Notion in under ten minutes!

How to locate and extract items from a list in Notion.

The formulas work for lists separated by a comma, however, you can make small changes to extract lists separated by other characters. Here’s how it works.
There’s a new function that has just been added to notion’s formula function list. The id() function! As the name suggests, it generates a random identification for a new database entry. This ID consists of random numbers and letters. Using this randomness, I created a handful of formulas to generate random numbers from 1-10, dice roll (1-6), coin flips, and more. It’s rare for Notion to release a new formula function so this is quite special!
For those using a Notion database for daily journaling or something similar, it may be beneficial to use dates as the title of a page.
