Embedding a YouTube Video

If you want to share a YouTube video with your team or simply have it easily accessible within Notion, embedding it is the way to go. To embed a YouTube video, follow these steps:

  2. Click on the “Share” button below the video.
  3. In the menu that appears, click on the “Embed” option.
  4. Copy the provided HTML code.
  5. In Notion, create a new block or select an existing block where you want to embed the video.
  6. Click on the “Slash” command (“/”) and type “Embed” to bring up the embed block.
  7. Paste the YouTube embed code into the block and press Enter.

That’s it! The YouTube video will now be embedded directly into your Notion page. You can resize the embedded video by dragging its edges, making it fit perfectly into your layout.

Embedding a Google Calendar

If you use Google Calendar to manage your schedule, embedding it into Notion can be a game-changer. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open Google Calendar in your browser.
  2. On the left-hand side, under “My calendars,” find the calendar you want to embed.
  3. Click on the three dots next to the calendar name and select “Settings and sharing.”
  4. In the “Integrate calendar” section, copy the provided HTML code.
  5. In Notion, create a new block or select an existing block where you want to embed the calendar.
  6. Click on the “Slash” command (“/”) and type “Embed” to bring up the embed block.
  7. Paste the Google Calendar embed code into the block and press Enter.

You will now have a live view of your Google Calendar directly within your Notion page. Any changes you make in Google Calendar will be reflected in Notion as well, ensuring that you always have an up-to-date schedule at your fingertips.

Embedding a Trello Board

If you’re a fan of Trello’s Kanban-style boards, embedding a board into Notion can help you stay organized and streamline your workflow. Follow these steps to embed a Trello board:

  2. Open the Trello board you want to embed.
  3. Click on the “Share” button in the top-right corner of the board.

  7. Paste the Trello board link into the block and press Enter.

Now, you’ll have a live view of your Trello board directly within your Notion page. This allows you to track your tasks and collaborate with your team without having to switch between multiple applications.
