Use Cases


Reference Obsidian Notes in Notion

If you are a long-time Notion user or use both Notion and Obsidian, you can use this trick to add URLs that redirect to your notes in Obsidian.

For example, you can link the hub note of your Daily Notes in Obsidian on a Notion dashboard page.

You can create a toggle list and add the URLs that redirect to your Obsidian notes.

In my case, I use Notion to track the status of my blog posts in a “projects view” mode. The writing happens in Obsidian to prevent me from tinkering with Notion’s features and just get the job done.

I include the Obsidian URL as a URL property in Notion to quickly access the note in Obsidian.

To link the two together, I use an “Obsidian URL” property on the page of the blog post so that it will open that note in Obsidian.
