How to Use Notion Date Property: A Practical Guide

Notion's Date Property is a dynamic tool that enhances your scheduling and organization efforts. This guide will walk you through adding this feature, customizing date formats, and implementing reminders to streamline your workflow.

Adding the Date Property

To incorporate a Date Property into your Notion database or page:

  1. Open your Notion page or database.

  2. Click on Add a property if you're in a database. For a page, click on the body where you'd like to add the date and select /date from the popup menu.

  3. Choose Date from the property type list. Name your property for easy identification.

Customizing Date Formats

Notion allows you to customize the Date Property in several ways:

  • Single Date: Select if your event or task has a specific due date.

  • Date Range: Useful for events or tasks spanning multiple days. Click on the End date option to set a range.

  • Customize the display format to include the time and adjust the time zone as necessary.

Setting Reminders

Reminders can be set directly within the Date Property:

  1. After setting your date, click on the Remind option.

  2. Choose when you'd like to receive the reminder. Options range from weeks before to minutes before the specified date.

Use Cases

  • Project Management: Use start and end dates to outline project timelines. Set reminders for critical milestones to stay on track.

  • Event Planning: Utilize date ranges for multi-day events. Reminders can ensure you’re prepared for each phase of the event.

  • Content Calendar: For content creators, setting publication dates and reminders for draft reviews can keep your publishing schedule consistent.

  • Personal Planning: Set up birthdays, anniversaries, or other personal events with reminders to never miss an important date.


The Date Property in Notion simplifies planning and organization, enhancing productivity by clearly scheduling tasks and events and setting timely reminders.
