  • For external platforms, obtain an embeddable link or iframe code, and paste it into the Embed block.

How do you create an embed block in Notion?

Option 1: Embedding Content from Notion-affiliated Platforms

  1. Identify the URL of the content you wish to embed. This could be a video from YouTube, a Tweet, a Google Map, or any other content from platforms that Notion supports for direct embedding.
  2. In your Notion page, either type '/embed' or click the '+' icon to the left of a new line and select 'Embed' from the menu that appears.
  3. Paste the copied URL into the Embed block and press 'Enter'. Notion will automatically recognize the content and embed it into your page.

Option 2: Embedding External, Unrelated Platforms

  1. For content not directly supported by Notion, obtain the embeddable link or iframe code from the source website. This is often found in the 'Share' options of the content.
  2. Create an Embed block in Notion by typing '/embed' or selecting 'Embed' from the '+' menu.
  3. Paste the embed link or iframe code into the Embed block. If Notion supports embedding from the source, it will display the content within your page.

Option 3: Using HtmlSave for Widgets

  1. Find a widget and copy its HTML embed code. Visit HtmlSave and paste the code to convert it into a shareable link.
  2. Copy the generated link from HtmlSave.
  3. In Notion, create an Embed block by typing '/embed' and paste the HtmlSave link into the block. This method is particularly useful for embedding custom widgets or content that does not have direct support in Notion.

Note: Some websites may restrict their content from being embedded on third-party sites. If you encounter a 'Failed to Load' error when attempting to embed content in Notion, this may be the reason. Additionally, embeds that require login to an external site may not function within Notion's desktop or mobile apps.
