Issue rendering data from a Notion DB on Table and Chart components

Hello Retool Community,

So, I've been trying to link up a Notion database with Retool. Managed to set up the Notion HQ resource and even pull data with a query. But I can't seem to get that data into a Retool table.

{
  "object":"database",
  "id":"5324e0d4-ca28-4c63-9e3d-d603b0fedbb0",

    },

      }
    },
    ...
 (The rest of theNotion database response)
    ...
  }

If anyone has experience with integrating Notion databases with Retool or has encountered a similar issue, I would greatly appreciate your help. Specifically, I'm looking for suggestions on how to properly format the response from Notion so that it can be displayed in a Retool table.

Hi @Carlos_Hidalgo, I would like to confirm the following:

  • Are there any issues connecting to the resource?
  • Is the object you shared the output of a query within Retool and you would like to display on a table?
    These details would help us confirm the next steps in order to achieve what you would like to build with Retool.

Hi! In the end, I managed to do it with a POST call instead of GET, and I was able to pass that data to a table. Now my question is how could I pass one of those data fields to, for example, a chart. Like, to know the percentage of "Nationality."

Follow this doc:

Note: We may need to format our data in order to render it on the Chart component.

I recommend going over the Plotly JS docs for the chart of your preference as well:

Chat GPT is very helpful with Plotly, just paste the JSON objects you have for Data source & Layout, and give it specific directions on what is that you intend to change:

Hello! I think I managed to create the chart, but I want it to pick up the values from the table. To do this, I created a JavaScript query to fetch the data from the Notion query.

Now it seems like it's not picking up those values because the percentage for each one is the same. Am I doing something wrong?

I use this on Data: [
{
"labels": ["España :es:", "Europa :earth_africa:", "Latinoamerica :earth_americas:", "Americana :us:", "Sin info", "Asia :earth_asia:"],
"values": {{query4.data.values}},
"type": "pie"
}
