Notion Forms is the best form builder for Notion.
With it you can easily create forms that automatically fill your Notion tables.
Here are a few ways you can use the Notion Forms widget:
- Create a contact form
- Collect survey responses
- Accept job applications
Why use a form that keeps your data outside of Notion when you can use Notion Forms to keep that information where you want it?
- Unlimited fields
- Unlimited forms
- Unlimited responses
- Dark mode
All of Notion Forms core features are 100% free.
They have a paid option if you want more customization and to remove their branding from you form.
But for most people the free version works great.
Loom is the best way to record your screen.
They’re super useful for adding video walkthroughs to the top of your Notion templates and documents.
I use Looms all the time when I’m sending a document to one of my consulting clients.
I’ll record a quick 3-minute video explaining the document and my thoughts behind it.
And you can embed a loom by simple typing /loom.
Embedding a Spotify playlist is the perfect way to add some aesthetics to your Notion templates.
Here’s how to add a Spotify widget to Notion:
- Create a new playlist or find an existing one you want to use.
- Copy the URL either from your browser’s address bar or within the Spotify app
- Type /embed in Notion
- Paste the URL
My Cozy Life Dashboard has a Lo-fi playlist embedded to maximize the cozy vibes.
Progress Bar Widget
This Notion widget displays a progress bar to show how much of an item is completed.
You can configure the properties within the Indify dashboard (requires login).
You can now also add progress bars directly within Notion databases too.
Notion Charts Widget
This is one of my favorite Notion widgets.
Easily generate charts you can embed in Notion.
The charts pull data from Google Sheets so you can always keep your data fresh and current.
They have both light and dark mode versions and building a chart is completely free.
Try it below.
Notion Quote Widget
This widget displays a random quote to you every day.
Good for inspiration and they look really good embedded in a Notion template too.
The quotes are pulled from Instagram accounts that you can configure within the Indify dashboard.
Weather Widget (Indify)
Keep track of the weather in your Notion dashboard.
Just input your location, preferred units (F or C), and how many days you want to view the weather for.
That way you can always keep track of the weather in your Notion dashboards
Ultimate Template Bundle
I’ve partnered with Gridfiti to offer their Ultimate Notion Templae Bundle for a discounted rate.

And 9 more high-quality Notion dashboard templates.
There’s no better way to jump start your personal Notion workspace.
Google Calendar Widget
The best way to connect your Google Calendar to Notion!
This widget requires you to sign into Google via Indify to authorize them to access your calendar.
Within Indify you can change the color and style of your calendar, and even enable dark mode to match your theme.
It’s totally free, try it by clicking the link below.
Notion Counters Widget
This widget is simply a way to count things in Notion!
It adds a button that you allows you to increment a number up or down.
We use this Notion counter widget in our free crochet dashboard.
You can also use it to keep score if you want to make a board game or card game template too.
Who doesn’t like counting things?
Notion Clock Widget
A fun clock for your aesthetic Notion templates.
Custom Button Widget
If you ever wanted to use custom buttons in your Notion templates this widget is for you!
This was created before Notion added their own button feature, so I’d recommend skipping this widget in favor of Notion’s official version.
Countdown Timer Widget
This widget will count down to a date you specify.
Flix Clock Screensaver Widget
This widget is free but you can grab a pack of colorful options for a small fee:
The Notion Life Calendar Widget
This widget is a little macabre but it tracks how much of your live you’ve lived so far.
Enter your date of birth and based on an average life span of 90 years it’ll display your days lives and how many days you have remaining.
Could be either depressing or motivating!
Grab it below.
Moon Phase Widget
Display the phase of the moon in real time within Notion.
You can change the display of the widget on the website linked below to modify:
- The size of the moon
- The shape
- The model type
- Colors and more
Pretty cool if you want to keep tabs on the moon phase.
Once you’re done then generate a code and type /embed in Notion to add it.
Aura Clock Widget
Aesthetic Pomodoro Timer Widget
Retro Clock Widget
Analog Clock Widget
Notion Weather Widget
Notion Page View Counter Widget
