Notion import FAQ

This article includes frequently asked questions about importing from Notion. For instructions on importing, see Import from Notion.

Will databases be brought over?

Will inline databases include field data?

How are fields from Notion imported?

How do we handle infinite nesting?

Are there other page attributes that we don't import?

The following formatting elements from Notion will be imported as plain text or bullet points in ClickUp:

  • Toggles

  • Callouts/comments
  • Table of contents
  • Cover images
  • Bookmarks
  • Columns
  • Dividers
  • Buttons
  • Videos
  • Blocks

If the doc/page was a wiki in Notion, will it be imported with the same properties?

Wikis in ClickUp are created at the document level. So you can import Notion pages into ClickUp Docs and convert them to wikis. 

Does page history import?

No, page history is not imported.

Can I import comments?

You can choose to include or exclude comments when exporting from Notion. If included, comments will be added to the bottom of the page.

Why are my tasks importing with different names?

To make sure the import is successful, we match the task names based on the values in the left column. To avoid this, verify that your databases are organized in the way that you'd like them to appear on the import before attempting to import again.
