There’s a big new Notion feature – backlinking. One can now create inline pages remotely, and connect pages backward. For example, if I were to create an inline page called “Sep 13, 2020” inside the body of my notes that connected remotely to a daily document database, I can now navigate back to my notes via the database without creating a relation property. Here is how the basic structure works.
How To Create a Backlink
There are 3 ways to create a new inline page.
The first is to use the “@” button.
The second is to type “[[“.
The third is to type “+” and begin typing a title
Here, you are prompted to either create a new page or link to an existing page.
First, you’ll notice that a linked inline page and sub page are smaller than a regular page. Also, coloring a linked page will cover the document icon as well.
A sub-page is structured like this:
A remote page is structured like this.
Type label of new page + select “New Page In”
Find page to insert new page inside.
If you click inside this new page, you’ll find that a backlink has populated. The backlink will display the page your original link resides.
