How to Effectively Sync Google Calendar and Notion in Akiflow

Notion is a new kind of workspace that combines speed, simplicity, and collaboration to help you do better work with your team. You can create a new workspace in just a few minutes and start adding content.

A workspace is where you go to add thoughts, ideas, and content. It’s the center of all activity in Notion.

Google Calendar lets you sync your calendars across devices. You can access your calendar from any computer or mobile device, so you’ll never miss a meeting or appointment. Google Calendar also integrates with other calendars and lets you schedule, plan, and collaborate on the organization. It allows you to share calendars with other Google users, delegate calendars, and create mailing groups for events right from Gmail.

Combined both?

Both apps hold great power with a large number of followers. On the one hand, all our professional and personal meetings are scheduled on Google calendar, with tasks planned for the day. On the other hand, Notion workspaces keep all our content, thoughts, and plans intact in one place. Hence, we need to integrate both apps in order to provide a timeline for our ideas, tasks, and events. Nevertheless, the problem arises when Notion doesn’t support Native integration with Google Calendar; in fact, no other app other than Slack. Although you can embed Google Calendar into Notion that is also view-only, which doesn’t solve the purpose, in other words, it’s just a tiny Google Calendar window, non-editable, unscratchable.

We need an Interface, which not only automatically allows all your marked content on Google calendar with its deadline but also lets you import properties such as a person, select and multi-select. Thanks to Akiflow, all that is possible.

Why the Akiflow integration?
