Obsidian allows you to easily migrate your notes from Notion using the [[Importer|Importer plugin]]. This will convert your Notion data to durable Markdown files, that you can use with Obsidian and many other apps. ## Export your data from Notion Obsidian uses Notion's HTML export format. You can find Notions's instructions on how to export your entire workspace [on Notion's website](https://www.notion.so/help/export-your-content). Note that you must be a workspace admin to see this option. 1. Go to **Settings & members** at the top of your left-hand sidebar. 2. Select **Settings** in the sidebar of that window. 3. Scroll down and select the **Export all workspace content** button. 4. Under **Export format** select **HTML**. 5. Enable **Include subpages** 6. Enable **Create folders for subpages** 7. You will receive a `.zip` file via email or directly in the browser. ![[notion-export.png#interface]] ## Import your Notion data into Obsidian You will need the official Obsidian [[Importer]] plugin, which you can [install here](obsidian://show-plugin?id=obsidian-importer). 1. Open **Settings**. 2. Go to **Community Plugins** and [install Importer](obsidian://show-plugin?id=obsidian-importer). 3. Enable the Importer plugin. 4. Open the **Importer** plugin using the command palette or ribbon icon. 5. Under **File format** select **Notion (.zip)** 6. Choose the `.zip` file with Notion files you want to import. *It's recommended to import all your Notion at once so internal links can be reconciled correctly.* 7. _Optionally_, select a folder for the import Your Notion pages and databases will be nested inside this folder. 8. Enable **Save parent pages in subfolders** to keep the Notion structure. *Note that in Notion you can write content in Folders, this is not possible in Obsidian and these pages will be added as a subpage under the folder.* 9. Select **Import** and wait until import is complete 10. You're done! ## Troubleshooting If you run into issues while importing from Notion: - Make sure you use **HTML** as the export format in Notion, **not Markdown**. - If Obsidian appears to freeze during import, disable community plugins and try again. Run into something else? Search [the Importer repository](https://github.com/obsidianmd/obsidian-importer/issues) to see if others have experienced it.
