How to visualize and track project progress in Notion with ChartBase
Here are the steps for visualizing and tracking project progress in Notion with ChartBase:
1. Create a table in Notion to track project progress
To begin, create a table in Notion to track project progress. The table should include columns for task, deadline, status, and any additional data that is relevant to your project. For example, you may want to include columns for task owner, priority, or progress percentage.
2. Connect your Notion workspace to ChartBase
Next, connect your Notion workspace to ChartBase by clicking on the "Connect to Notion" button and granting access to the table containing your project progress data. This will allow ChartBase to access and visualize the data in your table.
3. Create a new chart in ChartBase
Once you have connected your Notion workspace to ChartBase, you can create a new chart by clicking on the "Plus" button in the chart builder. Select the type of chart you want to create (e.g. bar chart), the table containing your project progress data, and the chart settings (e.g. deadline as the x-axis, task completion as the y-axis).
4. Customize the chart
You can customize the chart in a number of ways to better suit your needs. For example, you can change the chart type, labels, colors, and axes, as well as sort and filter the data. This will allow you to create charts that are easy to understand and interpret.
5. Embed the chart in your Notion page
Once you have created and customized the chart, you can embed it in your Notion page by clicking on the "Copy URL" button in the top right corner of the chart builder and enabling public sharing. Then, go to your Notion page, paste the URL of the chart, and click on the "Embed" button. This will display the chart directly on the page, where it can be viewed and discussed by anyone with access to the page.
