How to bookmark a URL into a Notion database

by Idriss AIT HAFID · Sep 2023

1. Bookmark the current URL

To bookmark a certain webpage, just click on the Copy To Notion icon in your browser toolbar, then choose Bookmark URL. After clicking, a popup will appear.
You can right-click and select Bookmark URL under Copy To Notion sub-menu, instead of using the extension icon.

2. Choose how it is bookmarked

In the popup, you can choose to save the URL as a simple bookmark or as an embed. The embed option allows you to view the webpage's content directly from your Notion page. Also, you can optionally leave a comment or a note that will be saved as caption under the bookmark.
Not all URLs can be embedded; it varies for each website.

3. Select the destination database

  • Click on “Add a Notion destination” under “Save to” dropdown
  • Type the title of your database on the search input
  • Select your database on the search results under Databases section.

4. Create your database form

Here you can match your database properties with the values provided by the extension.
Normally, the extension maps most of your database properties automatically for you, and you can change the mapping and the form title later whenever you want.
So, just click on SAVE & RETURN to create your database form.

5. Save your bookmark

If your database has tags, you can select or create a tag related to your note on the tags drop-down list. Then, click on “Add to Notion” to save your bookmark.
You don’t need to repeat the 2nd and 3rd steps every time for the same database, you can just select the related form under Stored Forms section.

6. Access the bookmarked URL

A little popup should be visible on the top right, you click on Open in Notion, to open the database page where your bookmark is saved.
