Importing tasks · 5:48

When you are ready to import a certain Notion task, you can pull it into your plan in Sunsama. There are three ways to do this:

  • Drag and drop the task from the Notion panel into your Sunsama task list.
  • To timebox the task directly, switch to calendar view (keyboard shortcut tab) and drag and drop the Notion task directly onto your Sunsama calendar at the time you plan to work on it. This will add the task to that day in Sunsama and create a working session on your calendar.
  • Click on the task in the Notion panel and click “Add to today” or select a specific date for the task.
