Notion is making waves in the no-code revolution. Modular productivity software is getting popular with its unique approach to organization and project management. One way it is making lives easier is with widgets. Notion widgets are a great addition to your workflow. We will explain how.
Best Notion Widgets to Try
Using Notion, you can create a perfect homepage that consists of all the information you need at a glance. The company offers various ways to customize the Notion home with headings, color backgrounds, and emojis but widgets are something that few note-taking apps offer. If you want to enhance the appeal then go ahead and try some third-party Notion widgets.
How to Apply Notion Widgets
Click on the widget link in the post. If it’s Indify link, it’ll redirect you to the homepage. To see the widgets, first, you need to log in with your Google account. Once done, scroll down to find the widget. Click on the widget you like. With each widget, you will find a unique URL to use in Notion.
You need to simply copy the link and go back to the Notion dashboard. Embed the link using the /Embed command and simply paste the link. You will see the Notion widget live in action.
