Join the Novu Organization
Before publishing the article under the Novu organization, you should have received the organization's secret code. If you haven’t, please contact email@example.com to receive it.
If you’re already a part of another organization, you need to select “New Organization” in the select input in the header of the page.
Under Join Organization, enter the secret code you obtained for the Novu Organization and click Join Organization.

Prepare Your Article for Publishing
Articles posted on Dev.to must be in Markdown format. Notion allows you to easily export your article in a compressed file along with the images in it. The article can be exported in multiple formats including Markdown.
To export your article, click on the 3 dots at the top right then choose export from the dropdown.
A pop-up window will then open with configurations for your export. Make sure that the Export Format is set to Markdown & CSV. You can leave the rest as is and click Export.
You’ll then be able to download the article as a compressed file. If you uncompress the file, you’ll see a file with the extension
md. This is your article in markdown format. You’ll also find any images in your article in a subfolder.
Create a New Post
To create a new post under the Novu organization, first, click on Create Post in the navigation bar.
Then, you’ll need to select from the top select input Novu to ensure that it is posted under the Novu organization.
After that, you’ll need to enter the below information from the Notion document for your article:
Post Title, cover image and tags
At Novu, we use different post titles for different platforms. You will most likely know the title already. If you don’t contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get it.
Also, the cover image and the tags will be provided to you.
In case you need help with anything, don’t hesitate to contact email@example.com at the earliest.
The content of the post is the markdown file you exported earlier. You’ll find at the beginning of the file key-value properties, which are the properties at the beginning of the Notion document for your article. For the article content, you can skip those properties and copy everything after.
If the article includes any images and videos, you should be able to find them in the exported compressed file.
If the article has any images, you need to manually upload them.
If the article has any videos, you need to convert them to GIFs (you can use online tools like Ezgif) and then upload them manually.
Publish the Article
Once you’re done entering all the information necessary for the article, you can click at the Publish button at the bottom left.
