Pushing Podio

Adding Notion to your ProcFu Account

By now you may know that I swear by Podio. With the advanced workflows from GlobiFlow, Podio is the most powerful work management platform out there (unless you can afford SAP and a team of developers).

But Podio is not the best tool for EVERY job. Podio is superb for structured, controlled, enforced, and automatable data.

When it comes to unstructured, fluid data, my tool of choice is Notion. Notion just makes it super easy to create documents and move shit around as you work. Notion does allow tabular data, but it’s nowhere near the level of Podio.

Connection Notion

Notion does not have an official API (yet). It’s on the roadmap, but I couldn’t wait any longer. All the automations in Notion provided by ProcFu, are done via Notion’s internal API (for now).

To make this work, you need a cookie from your browser from a logged-in Notion session.

  1. Open the Developer Console with CTRL+SHIFT+J
  1. Select the “Application” Tab on top
  1. On the left, under “Storage”, expand “Cookies”, and click on the Notion URL (https://www.notion.so)
  1. Look for a cookie called “token_v2”, double-click on the value, and copy it’s value to your clipboard.
  1. In ProcFu, select “Configuration” from the menu
  1. Next to “Notion”, click “Connect” and paste in the token value.

ProcFu Notion Scripts

Let’s get to the juicy bits.

The latest ProcFu mission has been to get Podio and Notion to work together so that you can use both these tools in a more integrated manner, getting the best of both worlds.

After long nights coding, there are now a useful collection of scripts to interact with Notion. You can see them in ProcFu here: https://procfu.com/scripts.php#notion.

Stay tuned for more posts showing these scripts in action.
