Getting Started


Getting Started

Once you have installed Local Notion, you need to grant access to your content from outside of Notion. To do this, you need to:

  • Generate your internal Notion Integration
  • Grant your Notion Integration permission your Notion data

Once you have done this, you then need to copy the Notion Integration token and use it within Local Notion.

Generating your Notion Integration token

Generating a Notion Integration token is a relatively simple procedure which you only need to do once. Follow these steps:

Open Notion Settings & Members

Select Connections and then Develop or manage integrations

Add a New Integration

Choose a name for your integration such as Local Notion

Scroll down and save your changes

Copy your Internal Integration token

ℹ️ Ensure that you keep note of your Notion Integration token (step 7) in secure manner. You will need this token to create your Local Notion repository.

Granting access to your content

In order for Local Notion to see your content you must grant your new Notion Integration permissions to it. To do this,

  1. Select the top-level Page or Database in your Workspace you want to grant permissions to.
  2. Select the “…” on top-right.
  3. Select Add Connections.
  4. Select the integration you created in previous section.
  5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 for all the top-level content you would like Local Notion to see.

Granting access to your content

Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to start using Local Notion.
