How to Set Up & Use Notion Calendar on iPhone

Notion Calendar on iPhone has become one of the most popular productivity apps in recent years. With its flexibility and wide range of features, Notion allows you to create databases, wikis, documents and more to organize your work and life.

One handy feature of Notion is its integration with calendar apps like Apple Calendar. This allows you to view your Notion tasks, events and schedules directly on your iPhone’s calendar.

Setting up Notion Calendar on iPhone may seem complicated at first, but it’s actually quite straightforward once you understand the basics. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the whole process step-by-step.

Before you can start using Notion Calendar on your iPhone, you need:

  • An iPhone running iOS 13 or later
  • The Notion app installed on your iPhone
  • Notion databases or pages you want to link to your calendar
  • Access to the iCloud account linked to your iPhone

It’s also recommended to have the Calendar app installed on your iPhone if you want to view your Notion events there directly.

Step 1: Connect Notion to Apple Calendar

The first thing you need to do is connect your Notion workspace to Apple Calendar. This allows Notion events and tasks to sync over to your iPhone calendar automatically.

Here is how to connect Notion to Apple Calendar:

  1. Go to on your iPhone browser. This is a third-party service that bridges Notion and calendar apps together.
  2. Click on Sign Up and create an account if you don’t already have one.
  3. Once signed up and logged in, click on Connect Calendar and select Apple Calendar.
  4. Follow the prompts to authorize access to your Apple Calendar account.
  5. Now go back to Notion on your iPhone and copy the link to the Database or Calendar page you want to sync.
  6. Paste this Notion page link in NotionToCalendar and click Add.

That’s it! This will automatically connect your Notion page to Apple Calendar. Any events or tasks added in that Notion page will now show up on your iPhone calendar after a short sync delay.

Step 2: Subscribe to Notion Calendar on iOS Calendar

After linking Notion to Apple Calendar, you need to add the Notion Calendar as a new calendar in the iOS Calendar app. Here are the steps:

  1. Open the Calendar app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on Calendars at the bottom.
  3. Tap on Add Calendar > Add Subscription.
  4. A URL field will appear. Paste the NotionToCalendar link here. It usually looks like
  5. Tap Add after pasting the link.

The Notion Calendar will now appear as a new calendar in your iOS Calendar app. You can toggle it on or off like any other calendar.

Step 3: View Your Notion Events on Calendar

After completing the above steps, your Notion tasks and events will automatically sync to the iOS Calendar app.

To view them:

  • Open the Calendar app on your iPhone
  • Make sure the Notion calendar is toggled ON
  • You will now see all updates from your linked Notion page on the calendar
  • Tap on any event to see its details

This allows you to view your Notion schedule alongside your other calendar events for a unified view.


Here are some of the things you can do with your synced Notion Calendar on iPhone:

  • View Notion events by day, week, or month
  • Add Notion events to your iOS Calendar
  • Set reminders for Notion tasks
  • Notion updates sync automatically to the calendar
  • Supports multiple Notion calendars
  • Toggle Notion calendar ON or OFF

However, you cannot directly edit or add iOS events to your Notion calendar from the iPhone. The integration only syncs one-way for now.

Step 4: Link Apple Calendar to Notion (Optional)

The steps above allow you to see Notion events on your iPhone Calendar. Optionally, you can also view your iOS Calendar events within Notion.

Here is how to link Apple Calendar to Notion on iPhone:

  1. Open the Notion app and create a new blank page.
  2. Tap on the integration button in the top bar.
  3. Search for “Calendar” and select the Apple Calendar integration.
  4. Follow the prompts to authorize Notion access to your iCloud calendar.
  5. A linked Apple Calendar module will be added to your Notion page.

Now when you create events on your iPhone Calendar, they will show up as calendar blocks in your linked Notion page after syncing.


While the Notion-to-Apple Calendar integration is handy, there are some limitations to be aware of:

  • Updates only sync one-way from Notion to Apple Calendar.
  • You cannot directly edit Calendar events from Notion on iOS.
  • Linking Apple Calendar to Notion only allows viewing events in Notion, not editing.
  • Syncing may have a short delay before updates show up.
  • Potential for sync errors with a large number of events.

So Notion Calendar on iPhone is best suited for viewing your schedule, not necessarily editing or managing it. Be sure to make any changes from Notion first before expecting them to sync over.

Tips for Using Notion Calendar on iPhone

Here are some tips to get the most out of the Notion Calendar integration on your iPhone:

  • Use separate Notion calendars for work, personal, etc. to organize events.
  • Label key Notion events for easy visibility on your iPhone calendar.
  • Toggle Notion calendar on/off to filter calendar views.
  • Check both Notion and Calendar apps to ensure updates sync properly.
  • Resync periodically if you notice missing or outdated events.
  • Limit Notion calendars to a reasonable number of events to prevent sync issues.
  • View month or week view for a high-level overview of your schedule.
