I see many folks asking about a migration from notion to Confluence, but if you think of it with some detail it's a very tough thing to ask. There's not a 1:1 equivalence between what both tools do, so whether a migration is possible or not would depend to a high extent on what type of content you guys have on notion and what are you willing to trade off.
Here are some questions that it would be nice to understand before anyone can think of such a migration.
Really looking forward to some clarity on this. I think in the future there will be a path!
Well, that's partially because:
It doesn't work like that from notion to Confluence, because
Basically, anything you bring over from notion and is built with its database features will be static and broken.
That's why I'm trying to imagine what you'd like to carry over.
I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere by Atlassian, I think it's more likely that a Marketplace vendor grabs it.
However, in order for anyone to do that it would be essential to better understand requirements. That's why I'm asking for some clarity here.
Hi, I got this question in my inbox, because of new answers, and I would like to add another answer/info to this.
One thing that is missing in Confluence compared to Notion is the database feature. That's why my company has build Orderly Databases for Confluence, and app that brings Notion-like databases to Confluence.

That said, it doesn't have an import feature (yet), but will be soon.
Very true. However, keep in mind that you get what you paid for...err, lack there of. Always be weary of any tool that does not have a way to move away from it, essentially locking you in without options. Confluence allows you a way to go to other tools and other tools can come to Confluence. Notion has built their tool on a specific set of requirements that prevents purposely allows migration into but not away from their tool. That should have been a flag to begin with. Add in that they offer you "free" options and you have bought into a dead end.
This is no said with the intent of saying Confluence is the best tool out there but rather that for some Confluence is and for others it is not. However, if those on Confluence find a need to have to move away from it towards a different tool, there are options out there. This is not the case with Notion.
Follow this guide for migrating any static tables. But beyond that it won't be helpful.
