How to fix Notion's rate limit reached error

To repair Notion's rate limit reached error pop-up, you simply have to wait and try duplicating the block or template again. Sadly, there's nothing else that you can do about it.

This problem affects developers more than the day-to-day Notion users, because developers work with duplicating these more than the average Notion user.

What does "Rate limit reached" mean in Notion?

Notion's rate limit is often reached when it comes to duplicating blocks and templates. In this case, the rate limit refers to the block/template being duplicate for enough times to reach Notion's API limit.

In Notion, a block and/or a template can be duplicated 20.000 times per hour. This doesn't mean that you can duplicate that 20k times per hour, as the 20 grand refers to all of Notion's users worldwide.
