I am learning how to write a harmonic grid and I wondered how to write a syncope?
I thought about doing:
If that makes sense? Is it the standard notation?

In my experience, this type of notation does not allow for this level of specificity, so this certainly isn't standard. These charts assume the performer is already familiar with the song, and the chord chart is just meant to jog the player's memory.
That being said, it is not uncommon for musicians to come up with their own symbols and notations to serve their own purposes. So, if it helps you, feel free to keep using it, but if you are giving this music to other performers they might not understand.
