Learn how to use the split function in Notion formulas.

New in Formulas 2.0

The split() function separates the first argument into a list, using the second argument to define the separation.

split(string, string)

Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

Note that if the second argument is not supplied, the string will be split at the space character.

split("One Two Three") /* Output: ["One", "Two", "Three"] */
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

Good to know: numbers can be used in the first and second arguments, but both the arguments and the resulting list items will be converted into strings. For example, split(13214215, 2) will return ["13", "14", "15"]
If you needed to convert those strings back into numbers, you would need to use the map function and its current variable → split(13214215, 2).map(toNumber(current)) will return [13, 14, 15]

split("Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Chopper", ", ") 
/* Output: ["Luffy", "Zoro", "Nami", "Chopper"] */

/* Output: ["thomasjfrank.com", "formulas", "functions", "split"] */

Code language: JavaScript (javascript)
