How to Embed Google Calendar into Notion

Notion comes with a built-in calendar feature. Notion’s calendar features are more versatile than Google Calendar. However, it is severely lacking some essential features that Google Calendar provides, such as:

  • Email integration
  • Cross-calendar integration and collaboration
  • Recurring events
  • Hangouts integration

Therefore, embedding Google Calendar into Notion will help improve your productivity and workflow. This guide shows you how to embed a Google Calendar into Notion.

Before we take a closer look at how to embed a Google Calendar in Notion, you need to know two things. First, you will need to make your Google Calendar public. This means anybody with the link to the calendar will be able to access all of your data but not make changes to it. Second, you will not be able to make changes or create events in your calendar through Notion.

How to make Google Calendar public

To make Google Calendar public, do the following:

  1. Head over to calendar.google.com and log in to your account.
  2. From the sidebar, you will find the “My calendars” section. Choose the calendar you wish to embed.
