Embedding Content in Notion

  3. Paste the copied URL into the 'Embed' block and hit 'Embed link'.

Option 2: External, Unrelated Platforms

  1. Obtain the embeddable link of the content you want to embed from the external platform.
  2. Create an 'Embed' block in Notion by typing '/embed' and hitting enter.
  3. Paste the copied embed link into the 'Embed' block and select 'Embed link'.

Option 3: HtmlSave (Mostly for Widgets)

  1. Copy the embeddable code of the widget you want to embed and go to HtmlSave to convert it into a shareable link.
  2. Copy the generated link from HtmlSave.
  3. In Notion, create an 'Embed' block and paste the HtmlSave link, then select 'Embed link'.

Following these steps, you can embed a wide range of content in Notion, including code snippets, widgets, videos, documents, and more, without needing to know how to code.
