We have made it super easy for you to manage your connection between your Notion databases and your Make Work Fun account.
The Make Work Fun app allows users to gamify their Notion databases and make work fun. However, there are situations where you may want to troubleshoot your connection. Here are a few common use cases and how to resolve them.
Missing Required Properties
How to add required properties on Notion?
For example, let's say we have connected the Reading List database template offered by Notion, but we are missing the
Share With Family checkbox property. This checkbox allows Make Work Fun to recognize that this is a win that should be gamified.
If any required property is missing, an error message will appear on the account page: "We've detected an error with your credentials. Test your connection to see how to fix."
To check if the property is truly missing, click "Save And Test" and then "Test Connection". In this example, the property is missing after doing the test.
To fix this, go back to your Notion workspace where the database is located and add a new checkbox property called
Share With Family?.
Then go back to your Make Work Fun page and hit "Refresh 🔄".
It will automatically save the changes and you'll see a pop-up that confirms your avatar is ready because everything has been connected perfectly and you have all the required properties.
Stop Syncing Your Wins
What if I want to unsync an old database? How do I do that?
If you want to stop syncing wins with any specific database, you can do so by clicking "Remove" and clicking "Yes" to confirm.
The database will then disappear from your synced list, and if you want to re-add the database in the future, simply click on "Connect".
However, ff you want to reconfigure your access permissions for the Make Work Fun app, click on "Reconnect Notion" to get back to the authentication screen.
Remove the check on the database you want to remove (in this case, Reading List), and click "Allow Access" to continue.
When you go back to your Make Work Fun app, you'll no longer see the database listed because the app simply doesn’t have access to it anymore.
