Relation in practice. Can they act like properties or fields in databases?
Block Relation in different Objects linking them with each other
Relation is the foundation of our graph structure. They connect your objects into the knowledge graph. But, you can use them for general purposes. For example:
  • You can also use relation to set some «primitive» value like a date, a tag, a status, an email, or a phone number. Later we will update the system where even such values might be presented as Objects.
  • Relations can be shown as columns in a “database” / “table” view by using Set. So you can use them as properties in Notion for such case.
  • Relations are global. You can change the name, and you will update it everywhere.
  • You can add any relation to any object using Blocks, Set or Object’s relation view. Take a look on Adding relations
