One of the most convenient features of Notion is the ability to share your pages and workspaces to the web. This allows you to share your work with others, collaborate on projects, or even publish your pages to the web publicly for anyone to browse, copy or edit.
In this tutorial, we will go over how to share a page or workspace to the web in Notion, as well as the different share to web options available.
In order to share a page or workspace in Notion, you will first need to navigate to the page or workspace that you want to share. This can be done by clicking on the page or workspace in your sidebar or by searching for it using the Notion shortcut 'Ctrl/Cmd + P'.
Once you have navigated to the page or workspace that you want to share, you will need to click on the 'Share' button located in the top right corner of the page. This will bring up a menu of options for sharing the page or workspace.
From the sharing options menu, you will need to select the 'Share to web' toggle. This will allow you to share the page or workspace to the web.
Once you have selected the 'Share to web' toggle, you will be prompted to set your link preferences. This includes options such as link expiry, allow editing, allow comments, allow duplicate as template, and search engine indexing. We will discuss these options in more detail in the next section of this article.
After you have set your link preferences, you can hit the 'Copy web link' button to copy the URL of your shared page or workspace. You can then share this link with others by pasting it into an email, message, or social media post.
Note: If you have any linked database views on your shared page, you'll need to share these separately (otherwise they won't appear for your viewers!). To do this, navigate to the linked database view and repeat steps 2-5.
There are several options available when sharing a page or workspace to the web in Notion. These options include:
You can set your shared link to expire after an hour, day or on a custom date. This is useful if you only want to share the link for a limited amount of time.
You can choose to allow others to edit your page or workspace when you share it to the web. This is great for collaboration, but you should be careful when sharing sensitive information.
You can choose to allow others to leave comments on your page or workspace when you share it to the web. This is great for feedback and discussion, but again, be mindful of sharing sensitive information.
This option is recommended for Notion template-makers. It allows others to duplicate the template you shared and use it for their own purposes.
You can choose to allow search engines to index your page or workspace when you share it to the web. This is only recommended if you don't have any sensitive information and want the page to be public.
If you are having trouble sharing your page or workspace to the web in Notion, there are a few things you can try:
