Use Notion Calendar with Notion

HC: Use Notion Calendar with Notion
In this Article

Notion Calendar and Notion work together to create a seamless experience as you go from meetings to notes to projects 🪄

To connect Notion Calendar to Notion:

  • Open Notion Calendar on desktop or web.

  • Go to SettingsNotion.

  • Next to Add Notion workspace, select Connect.

  • Give Notion Calendar access to Notion by selecting Allow access. If the integration is successful, you’ll see it appear in your settings.


  • If you have multiple workspaces, you need to connect them individually to Notion Calendar, even if those workspaces are associated with the same email address.

  • A workspace admin can’t turn on Notion Calendar for everyone in their Notion workspace. Notion Calendar and Notion must be connected at the user level.

  • Don’t worry — connecting Notion Calendar and Notion doesn’t mean your company will have access to your calendars.

When you create an event in Notion Calendar, you’ll see a Docs and links field in the event. Click into this field to add a Notion page, like an agenda, to the event details. From here, you can:

  • Make a new Notion page by selecting Create Notion page. Give your page a title and indicate where you want that page to live, and in which Notion workspace. Select Create when you’re done.

  • Choose an existing Notion page by searching for it, or selecting an option from Recent Notion pages. You can also switch between Notion workspaces if you have more than one connected to Notion Calendar.

  • Once you attach a Notion page to an event, you’ll be able to access it quickly and easily before a meeting, both from inside Notion Calendar and your menu bar.

You might use Notion databases to track important deadlines or events in calendar or timeline view. You can bring these events directly into Notion Calendar so you can see all of these dates in one place! To add a Notion database:

  • At the bottom of the left sidebar of Notion Calendar, find the Notion workspace that contains the database you want to see in your calendar.

  • Hover over the calendar’s name, then select •••Add Notion database. Search for and select the database you want to add to your calendar.

  • Dates from your database will appear in your calendar.

Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut O, or enter cmd + K and type “show Notion database”.

You can also add a Notion database to Notion Calendar from inside Notion. When you open a database with a date property in Notion, you’ll see the option to Open in Calendar.


  • You can only add a database while using Notion Calendar for desktop or web.

  • At the moment, you can only view your Notion database in Notion Calendar, not in Google Calendar.

  • You can add up to 10 databases to Notion Calendar.

  • While you can connect an existing Notion database to Notion Calendar, you can’t turn your Notion Calendar into a Notion database at this time.

Note: To edit Notion databases from Notion Calendar, you’ll need edit access for the database.

To create a new database entry from inside Notion Calendar:

  • Select an open time slot in your calendar.

  • In the right context panel, enter the details for your database entry.

  • Open the dropdown menu and select your Notion database.

Need to make adjustments to Notion database items from within Notion Calendar? To do so:

  • Select a database item.

  • In the right context panel, change the title, date, and time of your event. You can even move the item to another calendar.

These changes will all be reflected in the original database in Notion.


  • If the dates for a database you connect to Notion Calendar are generated using the Formula, Created time, or Last edited time properties, those dates will be read-only in Notion Calendar. In other words, you can’t edit those dates from inside your calendar.

  • If you duplicate a Notion database item in Notion Calendar, a new page will be created in your Notion database with the same title and date, but it won’t duplicate any other content inside the original page.

  • If you move a database item from one workspace to another inside of Notion Calendar, a new page will be created in the destination workspace with the same title and date. The original page will be archived in the source Notion workspace and can be restored.

If you want all new events you create in Notion Calendar to be added to your Notion database, change your default calendar to the database. To do this, go to SettingsCalendarsDefault calendar and pick the database you want to set as your default. On desktop, you can also set a default calendar by clicking the square next to the database’s name in the left sidebar.

Your calendar events can be viewed and joined directly from inside Notion. In Notion, go to Home in your sidebar to view your Upcoming events widget. If you haven’t already used Notion Calendar with Notion, you’re logged out of Notion Calendar, or you’re using the widget in a new or different Notion workspace, you can select Connect to Google Calendar in the widget to set up your calendar.

Note: If you’re using Notion for desktop, you may be prompted to sign into your Notion account on the web to set up the Upcoming events widget.

This widget can be customized to show the calendars and events that you want — learn more in this article.


  • You can connect multiple Notion Calendar accounts to the Upcoming events widget in Home.

  • If you’re in multiple Notion workspaces, don’t worry — you can adjust your Upcoming events widget differently for each!

You can unlink Notion Calendar and Notion from inside either app.

In Notion Calendar, go to SettingsNotion and select Disconnect beside the workspace you want to unlink.

In Notion, go to Settings & membersMy connections. Select ••• beside Notion Calendar, then Disconnect account.
