    How to Export Notion to a CSV File

    Exporting a Single Notion Page to CSV

    To convert a single Notion page into a CSV file, start by clicking the ••• icon located at the top right corner of the page. From the menu that appears, select the 'Export' option. Then, choose 'Markdown & CSV' from the dropdown menu provided. After making this selection, click the 'Export' button. You will then need to download the zip file, which will contain both the CSV and Markdown versions of the page.

    Exporting Notion Databases to CSV

    Notion databases can be exported to CSV files for various purposes such as transferring data, backing up information, or analyzing data with external tools. To convert a Notion database, utilize the same method as exporting a single page. After clicking the ••• icon and choosing 'Export', select 'Markdown & CSV', and then proceed to export. The resulting zip file downloaded will include the CSV file of your database.

    Exporting Entire Workspaces to CSV

    When you need to export an entire Notion workspace as a CSV file, the process may vary slightly. Notion facilitates the exporting of entire workspaces, including all the pages and databases within them. Again, click on the ••• icon, select 'Export', and then choose the appropriate format which includes CSV. Note that if your export file is exceptionally large, Notion will send you an email with a download link to access your files.

    Special Considerations for Exporting Workspaces

    Keep in mind that exporting workspaces as a PDF is an option available only to business and enterprise plans. However, CSV, HTML, and Markdown formats are available for all users when exporting workspaces. Following the standard export procedure and selecting the desired format will enable you to download your workspace data accordingly.
