Stream: Working with the Notion API (pt. 2)

This Friday, May 28 at 9:00am PST, I’ll be hosting another stream – we’ll be continuing to learn how to use Shortcuts with the Notion API.

Last time we covered the basics, got our database IDs, pulled & opened posts, and created new entries – check out the member post to get the shortcuts you’ll need to get started today.

This time, we’ll go into more specific data objects as well as updating pages and creating more of a Shortcuts system on the front-end.

This stream will be free while I’m live, then I’ll be unlisting it and making it available for members only – join in, ask questions, and catch the replay later to go back through everything.

Access the stream below – this post will be locked after I’m finished:

Member stream: Working with the Notion API

Hey members!

Here’s my livestream for the Notion API where I guide you through how to use Shortcuts with the Notion API.

We covered API basics, learned details on Notion’s specific JSON architecture, and experimented with the type of content we create in Notion – we ended up with three shortcuts (linked for members):

  • Copy Notion Database ID
  • Open Notion Page
  • Add Notion Page

Catch the replay below to go back through everything – and check out part 2 as well.

Access the stream by becoming a member – plus you’ll get access to all the members-only shortcuts plus:

  • New shortcuts on an ongoing basis
  • Extra ways to browse the catalog when you’re signed in
  • Prerelease notes & workflows I’m putting together
  • Exclusive livestreams teaching you more about Shortcuts

What’s New in Shortcuts? Issue 31

Originally posted as What’s New in Shortcuts? Issue 31sign up for the newsletter here.

Hello folks,

Yesterday, Apple announced a new iPad Pro, new iMacs, an upgraded Siri remote alongside a new Apple TV, and AirTags – lots to digest.

I’m super excited about Apple bringing the M1 chip to the iPad Pro – it means there’s more power coming to iPad, it shares a chip architecture with Macs, and that means more attention as well as opportunities for users.
I’m hoping that also means Shortcuts for Mac is less a question about how it’d work being built for iOS instead of Mac, which I thought would be preventative in the past… very interesting times we’re in right now.

There wasn’t a mention on-stage or in the one-shot slide of AirTags features whether there’s any type of Automations support for AirTags, so I’m hoping that’s a feature we’ll figure out or get later on.
Until pre-orders kick off this Friday, here’s what’s new in Shortcuts this week:

🆕 NEW FROM ME THIS WEEK

Lots of member materials this week (I’ve got a slew of public shortcuts coming soon), so sign up to get the goodness:

Welcome to Issue 3 of “What’s New in Shortcuts?”

Home Screen customization is the biggest trend now that iOS 14 has been out – it started with widgets but, funnily enough, went full-steam ahead thanks to Shortcuts’ Add to Home Screen feature.

From my Twitter – What a shame I never made a video out of this…

Let’s look at some ways you can approach your new Home Screen setup with Shortcuts in mind today:

📲 HOW TO MAKE YOUR HOME SCREEN AESTHETIC AF

Sick of that joke yet? After this TikTok went viral and pushed Widgetsmith to on the App Store, you’ve probably heard me make it a few times – but this trend of super-customized Home Screens trend is undeniably the most popular part of iOS 14:
