Creating to-do lists, taking notes, project management—Notion acts as a one-stop platform that helps you work more efficiently. It helps you limit the items that you must focus on without losing the detail.
But it also means you lose track of time—Thereby missing meetings and schedules, unless you frantically switch between multiple tabs to find your Google Calendar. But Notion has an answer to that as well.
By integrating your Google Calendar with Notion, you obviate the need to open multiple tabs in your browser. Bringing Google Calendar into your Notion dashboard helps you have your schedule handy— you will no longer miss meetings or deadlines because you were busy working.
Here’s how to set up your Google Calendar on Notion in two simple steps:
1. Make your Google Calendar Public
Your Google calendar needs to be public for Notion to be able to read and embed your calendar. The downside to this is that anyone with the link to your calendar will be able to access it, but it is an important prerequisite to embedding the calendar on Notion.
Here’s the process for making your Google Calendar public:
1. Head to your calendar and click on the wheel icon and select Settings.
2. You will see the Google Calendar Settings screen. Select the calendar that you want to embed into Notion and check the box next to Make available to public.
3. Scroll down the same window and copy the embed code.
2. Paste the public Google Calendar link in the Embed block.
Don’t fret. This step is very easy even for those not experienced with Notion.
- Head to the Notion page where you want to add your Google Calendar.
- Initiate an Embed block and paste the public link from the previous step.
3. Click on the Embed link button and that’s it. Your Google Calendar is now visible on your Notion page.
4. You can now treat the calendar just like any other Notion block. Move or resize it to align with the page layout.
