Embedding in Notion

Needing to embed a Whimsical board into a Notion page? Here's how to do it.

Head on over to Notion, and use the Whimsical embed option like this:

Get your shareable link from Whimsical, and paste it in!

That's it. Your board will appear. There are a few things to note, though...


  • In the Notion web app, you can see boards set to public AND boards which require you to login (assuming you have the login details).
  • In the Notion desktop and mobile apps, it is only possible to view embedded boards if they are set to public. You do that by setting your Whimsical board to "Anyone with the link can view". It is not possible to view boards which require you to be logged into Whimsical.
  • If you are logged into Whimsical, and a board is not showing in Notion desktop, you may need to check your browser privacy settings. Some enhanced privacy settings prevent a login cookie being set. In Safari, the you will need to disable "Prevent cross-site tracking".

And here's the final result!
