Notion API, update a checkbox value in a database

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

Here’s how to update a checkbox value in a Notion database using the Notion API.

Each entry is considered to be a page.

So once you have that entry, let’s assume it to be the variable named page, you’ll have its id under page.id

I’ll also assume you have the Notion client initialized.

import { Client } from '@notionhq/client'

//...

const notion = new Client({ auth: process.env.NOTION_API_KEY })

Then you can do this to set value of the checkbox named “Ready” to true:

await notion.pages.update({
  page_id: page.id,
  properties: {
    Ready: {
      checkbox: true,
    },
  },
})
Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
