You can transfer your content from one account (we'll call this Account A) to another (Account B) by following these steps:
🎒
Tip: If you own both accounts, the easiest way to do this is to just change your email on file. You can do so in the My Account section of Settings & Members.
  • Log into Account A on our web or desktop app.
  • Create a new page by clicking + New Page in the bottom of the left-sidebar.
  • Consolidate all your pages under one top-level page by dragging and dropping each page into the new page you created in the left-sidebar.
  • Click on Share at the top right corner of the top-level page and click Invite a Person to share the page with "Full Access" to the email associated with Account B.
  • Log out of Account A, using the workspace menu at the top left of the app.
  • Log into Account B.
  • Click on the workspace switcher at the top left, and go to the top-level page you just shared from Account A. It should look something like this:
  • In that page, select all the subpages and click on the block handle (the six dots that look like ::) and click Move to.
  • Search for and select the workspace name that you want to move the subpages to. You can only move subpages — you won't be able to move the top-level page.
Your content should be moved to your Account B workspace! Let us know if you have any questions along the way.

FAQs

  • I tried changing my email address but got an error message saying: "A user with this email already exists."
    If you'd like to change your account email to one that already exists within Notion, you can log into the account that holds the email you want and delete that account to free up that email address.
    To delete the account, go to Settings & Members in the left sidebar, then My Account, then Delete My Account.
    Then log into your current account, and go to Settings & Members, then My Account, and select Change email. You should be able to switch to the freed up email address.
  • I can't seem to invite another account to my page.
    You may have enabled the Disable guests feature. You can find it in the Security & SAML section of Settings & Members in your sidebar.
  • I can't find any workspaces in the Move to menu.
    You may have enabled the Disable moving pages to other workspaces setting. You can find it in the Security & SAML section of Settings & Members in your sidebar.
