Learn how to use the style function in Notion formulas.

New in Formulas 2.0

The style() function will add formatting to a string. Accepted styles include bold, underline, italics, code, and strikethrough for formatting, and both text and background colors.

style(string, formatting, textColor, backgroundColor), textColor, backgroundColor)

Each formatting or color option must have its own argument ("b", "u", "blue", "red_background"), and the order of the arguments does not matter.

style("Thomas Frank", "b", "i", "blue") "College Info Geek".style("s", "yellow_background")
  • "b"Bold
  • "u"Underline
  • "i"Italics
  • "c"Code
  • "s"Strikethrough

Only one text color and one background color can be set per string using the following arguments. If multiple text or background color arguments are added the last argument will be used.

Color Text Background
Default "default" n/a
Gray "gray" "gray_background"
Brown "brown" "brown_background"
Orange "orange" "orange_background"
Yellow "yellow" "yellow_background"
Green "green" "green_background"
Blue "blue" "blue_background"
Purple "purple" "purple_background"
Pink "pink" "pink_background"
Red "red" "red_background"
