Since Notion has consistently been one of the top searched terms here in the community, I thought I’d share yet another tutorial by @Matous_Vrba from our Growth Team.
In the video, you’ll get a step-by-step overview of how to effectively sync your Notion database with your Google Calendar. Read on to get the summary of what goes on in the tutorial or skip to the end of the post to watch the video.
The scenario you’ll be building in this tutorial watches changes in a Notion database item and:
creates new events in your Google Calendar for newly added items in Notion
updates events in your Google Calendar when events are updated in Notion
deletes events in your Google Calendar when the status of the event is changed to ‘Canceled’ in Notion
Hi! Thanks so much for this tutorial. Very well explained.
I’m either a dope (and not doing something correctly) or something changed in Make. Here’s the trouble.
SETUP: After GCal module updates event, I add the “Update a Database Item” module for notion as at 7:12 in Tutorial video. Then, I add the Database ID and Database Item ID.
PROBLEM: For “Database Item ID” I get a Bundle Validation Error. See screenshot. I’ve double checked I’ve set everything up exactly as tutorial explains but keeps throwing this error. Any thoughts? (FYI, I get this error in other test scenarios as well.
I spent countless hours trying to figure this out, and this was gold. Within 1h I was able to set it up, and also adjust it following few troubleshooting.
However I wanted to improve this for my use, and once I cancel the appointment, and the Event ID is (deleted) is it possible then to then carry out further step which then would remove this Database Entry. Is this possible or do I wish for too much?
I also want to upgrade it further, so that when I change entries directly on the Calendar, they can be reflected on notion → first as Event ID deleted → then if Event ID deleted → delete this database item.
