Hey — it's Rames

I just finished my first Lego build in a (very) long time: the Land Rover Classic Defender 90. It's the type of activity that really switches your brain off.

It's also reassuring, as all you have to do is follow instructions. Quite nice at the end of the day when you're suffering from decision-fatigue.

And before we begin... This week's sponsor...

3 Tips

1/ Duplicate automations

You can now duplicate database automations! Quite handy when you have 20+ step automations 🙃

2/ Debug formulas

For formula aficionados, you can now click the "Show details" button to see the output format of your formula.

3/ Rearrange properties before name in list view

Another small update: you can now add properties before the Title property in the list view. This works great with checkboxes, statuses, etc.

2 Resources

1/ Build your own finance tracker

If you're looking for a simple and effective way to track your personal and/or business finances, Notion is a great option.

In this article, I'll show you how to build your own aesthetic Notion finance tracker, step by step. It includes expense and income management, as well as monthly and yearly reports.

I also provide a free Notion template that you can duplicate to get started right away.

2/ Notion Backups

Notion Backups is a service that allows you to easily back up and restore your Notion workspaces. It provides automated backups on a consistent schedule, stores your data in your preferred cloud storage provider, and allows for point-in-time recovery.

It ensures security and privacy by purging your data from their servers as soon as the backup is finished, and encrypting all in/out connections.

The service offers a Starter Plan for $10 per month and a Pro Plan for $24 per month, each with varying features. They also offer support and have a simple cancellation policy.
