How to Use Templates in Notion

You don’t have to download a template to use it in Notion. You don’t have to upload it either. Instead, you need to duplicate it from the source in your own Workspace. Feeling a little lost? Here’s how to use templates in Notion.

You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to start using a template in your own Workspace on Notion. You simply need to click the little ‘Duplicate’ button in the upper-right of it, then sign in to your Notion account if you aren’t already.

Of course, you always have the option to both download and upload a Page in your Workspace manually. Just keep in mind that saving random files on your machine can lead to a whole world of trouble, so exercise caution.

If you’re wanting to download a Page in your Workspace to be used as a template, simply open it up then select the three horizontal buttons in the upper-right corner, followed by ‘Export‘, then select the format you require.

To import a template in Notion, select ‘Import‘ from the sidebar on the left, select the file format (this should be either CSV or Text & Markdown if you’re uploading a purpose-made Notion template), then choose the file.

Are Notion Templates Safe?

The templates featured above are 100% safe, so much so there isn’t a single download involved. You’re merely cloning something in your own Workspace – a feature provided by Notion itself. A data-transfer relationship is not formed.

Should You Pay for Notion Templates?

It depends, really. Value is relative, so if you think the template you’re looking worth your hard-earned cash then by all means buy one. If not, opt for a free alternative (all of the Notion templates above are free) or make your own.
