Last Updated: July 8, 2021
Do you want to add a read-only copy of your Google Calendar on one of your pages in Notion for other people to see? Or do you want to integrate it instead of using the calendar block on the app? Either way, we’re here to help you. In our guide below, we’ll show you how to use the embed feature in Notion to integrate your Google Calendar into the app. Whether you’re using the mobile, web, or desktop app, we got you covered.
Although the calendar feature in Notion allows you to add tasks, schedule events, place links, and many more, it falls short in other aspects such as email integration and combining multiple calendars. While it is still useful when using the app for personal stuff, you’ll need the other crucial features when working in an organization or team.
Thankfully, Notion allows you to integrate your Google Calendar to the Notion app. In this way, you can display calendars that you use to collaborate and communicate with your teammates on your G-Suite account.
With that in mind, we have here our quick guide on how to integrate your Google Calendar to one of your pages in the Notion app.
How to integrate your Google Calendar to Notion
If you want to have access quick access to your Google Calendar in one of your pages in Notion, you can choose to integrate it into the app. With the help of the embed feature, you can link a view-only copy of your calendar that you and other people can check whenever you want.
You can use the embed feature on Notion whether you’re using the app on your computer or mobile device. Follow our quick tutorials below to learn how to integrate your Google Calendar on both. However, please note that you can only embed the calendar from the email addresses associated with your account.
- Open Google Calendar and sign in to your account. Make sure to use the one connected to your Asana account.
- On “My calendars” at the left side of your screen, hover on the calendar you want to embed, click the three horizontal dots, and select “Settings and Sharing” on the menu.
- Under the Access permissions section, make the calendar available to the public.
- Scroll down to the Integrate calendar section and copy the public URL.
- Open one of your pages in Notion, add a block, and choose “Embed.” Alternatively, type “/embed” on the command section and press Enter.
- Paste the calendar’s URL and click the blue “Embed Link” button.
That’s how you integrate your Google Calendar to Notion on their web or desktop app. Always remember that you can only view the calendar, and there’s no way to edit it when accessed through the embed link.
On your mobile device:
As for those using Notion on their mobile device, you might want to get the public URL to your calendar beforehand and send it to your phone. Alternatively, you can use the Desktop mode on your web browser to visit Google Calendar and copy the integration link.

- Scroll down and select the “Embed” option.
- Paste the calendar’s public URL on the appropriate field and tap “Embed link.”
Please note that you can’t add, delete, or edit events through this read-only version of your calendar. Also, expect some delays to the calendar in Notion whenever you update or make some changes to your Google Calendar.
