Faster creation of new new Objects from the Set view

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

One of the things I liked most about Notion when I started using it, was how easy it was to quickly create a bunch of database entries.

Here’s a demonstration of what I mean.

I can just type out the title for my database entry, hit enter, and move on to the next.

A similar process in Sets as they’re implemented now would look like:

    1. Click the “New” button
    1. Type the name of the Object (Database entry)
    1. Click outside of the pop-up window to close the page it just created

Repeat for potentially 100 database entries

That’s a lot of shifting between Mouse and Keyboard that could be eliminated in a system like Notion has.

Describe the solution you’d like

I would like to be able to create a bunch of objects in Set view really quickly. Being able to just type the name for the Object, hit enter, then start typing the next one would be invaluable, especially when I’m manually importing a database that I already have.

Congratulations, I mentioned it on my profile as a worth voting for feature request :+1:t2:

I hope it’ll gets the spotlight it deserves.

Good one. I think this (or something similar) has been requested or mentioned a couple of times within other posts. But it’s definitely important enough to have its own post.
