How to Embed Google Calendar on Your Website

Add a professional-looking calendar to your site.

What to Know

This article explains how to select, customize, and embed a Google Calendar onto your website. Instructions apply to desktops on any browser.

How to Embed a Google Calendar on Your Website

Use the free Google Calendar to manage and share a public-facing calendar on your website.

Getting Started: Settings

To embed a calendar, log in to Google Calendar. Next, go to the left panel and hover over the calendar you want to embed. Select the three dots that appear. In the expanded option box, select  Settings and sharing .

Copy the Code or Select More Options

Scroll down to the Integrate Calendar section. Under Use this code to embed this calendar in a web page , copy the embed code. The default size is an 800 by 600 pixel calendar with Google's default color scheme.

Select Customize to change settings.

Customizing the Look

After selecting Customize , specify the default background color to match your website, the time zone, the language, and the first day of the week. Set the calendar default to Week , Month , or Agenda view.

Agenda view is useful for something like a cafeteria menu or team project schedule.

You can also specify which elements show up on your calendar—like the title, print icon, or navigation buttons.

The default size is 800 by 600 pixels. That size is fine for a ​full-size web page with nothing else on it; however, if you're adding your calendar to a blog or web page with other items, you'll need to adjust the size.

Every time you make a change, the site displays a live preview. The HTML above your calendar changes as well.

When you're satisfied with your changes, go to the top of the screen, and under Embed code, copy ( Ctrl+C or Command+C ) the HTML.

Paste Your HTML

Paste ( Ctrl+V or Command+V )the code into the relevant section of the HTML for your webpage.

The Calendar Is Embedded

View your final page to display the live calendar. Any changes you make to events on your calendar update automatically.

If it isn't quite the size or color you had in mind, go back to Google Calendar and adjust the settings, but you'll have to copy and paste the HTML code again. In this case, you're changing the way the calendar appears on your page, not the events.

How to Use PowerPoint to Create a Website Storyboard

By Stephanie D

Storyboards are a method used to mock up ideas, designs and concepts for websites. Storyboards help website developers plan and organize information. In addition, storyboards can also be used for lightweight user testing to effectively find problems with websites before a lot of development time has been used implementing the website. Powerpoint is a common tool used to create storyboards to plan websites.

Open up a new presentation in Powerpoint.

Insert an organization chart into the blank slide. You can insert a chart by selecting "Insert", then "Picture" and finally "Organization Chart" from the menu bar in the top left-hand corner of Powerpoint.

Open the organization chart dialog box by clicking on the rectangle in the middle of the screen.

In the Microsoft organization chart dialog box, type the name of the home page of the website in the highlighted text.

Add any other boxes or sub-pages for your website by selecting the appropriate button in the menu toolbar that describes the relationship the sub-page has to the highlighted page (initially the home page). Rename any new boxes, or sub-pages, that you add to the story board.

When you are finished adding new sub-pages to the storyboard, update the PowerPoint presentation by selecting "Update Document" from the File menu.

How to Embed Live Websites into Your PowerPoint Slideshow

embed website in powerpoint presentation

Do you get tired of having to switch back and forth between websites and your PowerPoint slideshow during a lecture? Do you wish it were possible to add that website right to your slideshow?

Well, it turns out you can!

For newer versions of PowerPoint (2013, 2016, Mac), you can download the Web Viewer add-in and place web pages right into a slide within your slideshow.

Note : this add-in only works with secure websites (those beginning with HTTPS) for security reasons.

To install the Web Viewer Add-In

This will add the Web Viewer add-in to your PowerPoint allowing you to insert web pages into any slide within your slideshows.

To Embed a Web Page into a Slide

But what if the website you want to add isn’t “secure” (doesn’t include the “s” after “http”)?

embed website in powerpoint presentation

Sometimes, Web Viewer doesn’t do exactly what you want since it only works for secure web content. When you need to add a public web page, you can use another add-in called LiveSlides.

LiveSlides works the same way Web Viewer does but offers a little more flexibility.

How to Embed a Web Page in a PowerPoint Presentation

embed website in powerpoint presentation

Imagine you’re in the middle of your webinar or your presentation at a live event. You’ve intrigued your audience with some details, have their undivided attention, your story is about to reach its climax – a demo of your product, a proof of your concept, or any other valuable knowledge – and you click on the link to go to the website and… here comes an awkward moment: you switch off show mode, change from the Microsoft PowerPoint window to Chrome, then turn on slideshow mode again. When you look back at the audience, they’ve already lost interest.

To avoid such situations, you might want to embed a web page in your presentation. The iframe tag will help you display an HTML document in your slides.

What Is an iframe?

An iframe (inline frame) is an HTML element that loads another HTML page within the document. In other words, it puts another web page within the parent page. It is commonly used for embedded videos, advertisements, and interactive content, and can be a great enhancement for your presentation. 

Four Simple Steps to Insert a Web Page

Questions about iframe and HTML can intimidate some people, but, frankly, there’s nothing to worry about. You don’t need to make any operations with an embed code or do any other tech things.

With the right PowerPoint add-in, you’ll manage to add an object in a couple of minutes. You’re just required to take 4 easy steps. Let us guide you through them.

web object

Paste the copied URL in the open window. Now, check to see if the address that you entered is correct by clicking on the Preview button.

insert web object

By the way, you can show web pages even when an internet connection is not available. To do this, you need to download the desired web object to your computer, and then add the file by choosing Local path instead of Web address .

Local path

Note: if you want to put additional web pages on your PowerPoint slide, or if you want to combine the webpage with other content objects, you should choose the Custom size option.

Custom size

Publish presentation

View course

Congrats! You’ve successfully embedded a web page in your PowerPoint presentation. Moreover, you can now share your presentation online easily. Viewers can open it right in a web browser on their computers, tablets, and smartphones without any special tools, even if PowerPoint isn’t installed on their device. 

By moving presentations online, you can also be sure that your content is protected from being copied or modified. iSpring Cam Pro provides an entire range of security settings, including watermark protection, password protection, and domain restriction.

Why Not a Screenshot?

We’ve already described an awkward real-life situation that you might find yourself in when using links in your presentation, but what about screenshots of websites? Sure, you can just make one and insert it into your presentation as an image with text and other elements displayed on the webpage. But this “technology” has some limitations.

So, yes, you can use screenshots of websites, but they will not help you enhance your presentation, and they might even become a burden if you show your presentation regularly and thus have to constantly update screenshots in order to stay up to date.

Embedding a web page in a presentation is fairly simple if you have the right app. iSpring Converter Pro is a perfect solution that helps its users enrich their presentations and keep them relevant and interactive. In this way, you can save time and effort that is otherwise spent with regular manual updating. You won’t have to disrupt the flow of your presentation in order to change from the PowerPoint tab to Google Chrome. You only need to follow our guide, and you’ll get a constantly up-to-date presentation that you can convert to online formats that display perfectly on any device. Start with the  iSpring Converter Pro free trial and see how handy and engaging it is to have live web pages in your presentations.

How To Add Live Web Pages to a PowerPoint Presentation

Matthew Guay is a veteran app reviewer and technology tip writer. His work has appeared on Zapier's blog, AppStorm, Envato Tuts+, and his own blog, Techinch. Read more...

Have you ever wanted to demonstrate a live website during a PowerPoint presentation?  Here’s how you can insert a live webpage into a PowerPoint presentation so you can show the exact content you’re talking about.

No matter what you’re giving a presentation about, sometimes it can be useful to show your audience information from the internet.  You could always create a screenshot of the webpage you’re demonstrating, but chances are the screenshot may be out of date by the time you give your presentation.

embed website in powerpoint presentation

A better solution is to use live information from the web in your presentation.  By default, PowerPoint doesn’t support inserting a live web page, but you can easily do this with the LiveWeb add-in.

Head to the LiveWeb website ( link below ), and download the correct version for your version of PowerPoint.  We selected the 2007/2010 version in this test.

Once it’s downloaded, extract the files as normal.

Now, in PowerPoint, open the Options window.  In PowerPoint 2010, you can do this by clicking the File button and selecting Options ; in PowerPoint 2007, click the Office orb and select Options .

This will open the PowerPoint Add-ins window.  Click Add New to add the LiveWeb addin we downloaded previously.

Browse to the folder where you extracted the LiveWeb addin, and select it.

Now you should see LiveWeb listed in the Add-Ins window, and you’re ready to add a live webpage to your PowerPoint presentation.

Using LiveWeb in PowerPoint

Now that LiveWeb is installed, you’re ready to insert live internet data in your presentations.  From the Insert tab, select Web Page from the LiveWeb section.

This will open a quick Wizard interface that will help you insert a webpage into your presentation.

Enter the website you’d like to visit in the first line, then click the Add button.  Make sure to include http:// in front of the website address.  Once you’ve added the website you wish to visit, click Next .

LiveWeb will automatically refresh the web page, but if you want you can uncheck the box.  Click Next to continue.

Now choose how much of the slide you want the webpage to cover, and select where you want to position the page.  You can always change this later if you like.

Once it’s finished, click Finish to return back to PowerPoint.

LiveWeb will let you know it successfully added the web page to your slide.

You’ll now see a Windows 98-style logo in your slide, showing where your live webpage will be located.

Feel free to resize or move the webpage section in your slide however you want.

Now you’ll see a live webpage loaded right inside your PowerPoint presentation.  You can markup the slide as you would any other with PowerPoint tools, or you can interact with the website just as you would in a browser.

If you need to change your webpage, click the Edit Page Property button on the Insert tab.

You can also add multiple web pages to a presentation if you’d like.  You could even make a webpage comparison like we did with screenshots in our first slide.  Only difference here is, the web pages are both live, and you could demonstrate how to use them to your audience.

When you save your presentation, you’ll need to save it as a Macro-enabled presentation in .pptm format to preserve the web data.  Note that you’ll be able to view the presentation on another computer only if it has the LiveWeb addon installed.  Since it’s a free addon, you could keep a copy of it on your flash drive so you could easily install it if you need to show your presentation on another computer.

Whether you’re trying to teach a class about computer usage or demonstrate your new website for your company’s board members, the LiveWeb addin makes it easy to incorporate live web pages in your presentations.  There are many ways you could use this, so let us know how you use live web pages in your presentations to make information come alive!

If you’d like to use live web data in other Office applications, here’s how you can Use Online Data in Excel 2010 Spreadsheets .

Download the LiveWeb Add-in for PowerPoint

Insert a Webpage in PowerPoint slideshow

Sometimes you need to show a webpage in a PowerPoint slideshow and a possible solution is using the external link feature that is available almost all Office PowerPoint distribution.

However, if you want to insert a live webpage into a PowerPoint slide you can choose a free add-on LiveWeb that makes available a new button to insert a webpage into the slide .

live web

You can use LiveWeb to insert web pages into a PowerPoint slide and refresh the pages real-time during slide show. Display web pages without ever leaving the PowerPoint slide show.  LiveWeb works with documents off your local drive too. You can specify relative paths or absolute paths. LiveWeb will also look for files in the presentation folder if the files have local drive information and cannot be located at the location specified by the user during slideshow.

LiveWeb encapsulates the need to insert a web browser control manually and write code to update the web pages within the control during the slide show.

Display Website in PowerPoint with Updates

May 11, 2019 | DataPoint , DataPoint Real-time Screens

We are the champion in displaying real-time information on your PowerPoint slides. Typically information is stored in files and databases, and these numbers, names, percentages, KPIs, target dates etc are all displayed as characters and numbers. But in some cases, it is not possible to collect or connect to a data source to get the raw data. Sometimes you have to display a screenshot of a website to show the information because that (legacy) system is not able to export the information, or you have no access to it.

With our DataPoint , you can already grab an image of a website and show this in real-time on your slide, but some images or snapshots of websites are technically not possible to capture because of the technology used. For this, we have added a new feature to our DataPoint.

In the past, we often recommended to use some free plugin to display an URL on your slide, but there was a disadvantage with that technology. Every time that the PowerPoint slide was shown in the slideshow, the web page was rebuild on your screen and that was not always needed. This process starts with an empty browser and then you will see the website coming up. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow, and sometimes in a blocking situation when the visiting website shows a popup error message. So not ideal for non-interactive information screens like our customers are typically using. So we had to come up with an alternative way.

The new web URL shape is added to the DataPoint ribbon. 

embed website in powerpoint presentation



How do you manage websites requiring login and password ?


Hi Marc, currently we are just using public website URLs but I guess that when you choose to store/save the username and password in IE, that DataPoint is automatically using that info.

Thinking of purchasing the software to display our stock portfolio from yahoo finance. How do I input my login and password

Please and thank you!

Do you have to log on to that service? You could save and store your login info, or maybe better, use a free public service. We have some resources listed here. https://www.presentationpoint.com/resources/datafeed-directory/

Carlos Gonzalez

We are working on having a touchscreen kiosk with a PowerPoint presentation. One of the features we like to add is having our customers press the “Schedule your next service Appointment”. We would like our customer to press a link to our dealership website that allows our customers to set up the appointment WITHOUT leaving the powerpoint presentation.

Does your software allows for this?

For that you need to embed your website via e.g. the liveweb plugin and that is free and does not need our plugins for that. Check out https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/25946/how-to-add-live-web-pages-to-a-powerpoint-presentation/ Good luck with your project. Sounds interesting!


how can you add a website to powerpoint that you need to have a login for and also have it update?

I don’t think you can bypass that logging in, unless you can make your webpage public.


We had sent a copy of the PowerPoint to another user’s pc and upon pulling up the PowerPoint, the live weather has carried over. But the URL we used is just giving us a little red X in the corner saying due to privacy/security it did not download/allow the “picture”/website to load. Is there a work around for this? The comp we are trying to display the PowerPoint from does not have Data Point, if that makes a difference.

Maybe better is to create a snapshot (see snapshot button) and send that output over. That will always show the pictures.

How to Embed IFrame to PowerPoint Presentation Freely

For a better and more exact PowerPoint presentation, many people choose to embed live web pages (HTML) to their PowerPoint presentation. Of course, you can add the web page screenshot, but it is not satisfactory especially as time goes on. So we come back to live HTML pages, in this article, we will show you how to embed iframe code to insert HTML pages and other web objects to PowerPoint presentation.

Embed IFrame to PowerPoint

Part 1: What is IFrame

An IFrame, also named Inline Frame, is one HTML document embedded inside another HTML document on a website. It can be chosen by the user agent as the focus for printing, viewing its source, and more. Although an iframe looks like an inline image, it can be configured with its own scrollbar independent of the surrounding page's scrollbar.

In PowerPoint, if you want to directly check web pages from your slide show, you can embed iFrame code to this PowerPoint, and then you can keep the flow of your PowerPoint presentation and display a web object at the same time.

Part 2: How to insert iframe to PowerPoint

Now, let's see how to insert an IFrame to PPT in an easy way.

1. Go to the HTML web page that you want to add to your PowerPoint presentation and copy its web address (URL). If you only want to insert an element of the web page, find its IFrame code, and copy the URL from the embed code.

2. Download iSpring Converter Pro. Because PowerPoint doesn't support insert live web pages into PPT, so we need to take use of one PowerPoint add-in, to embed iframe to your presentation.

3. Open your PowerPoint and click the iSpring Converter Pro 8 button from the top menu. And choose "Web Object" on the toolbar.

Web Object

4. In the opening window, enter or paste the URL of the web page element that you want to insert to PPT. If you want to insert the whole web page, you can enter its address. After that, click "Preview" to check if the URL is correct.

5. Select the iFrame size from "Settings" on the the bottom-left corner, to adapt other objects on your slide show. And click "OK" to finish inserting.

Insert HTML

For playing HTML web objects, you need to convert PowerPoint to HTML5, OK, just do it with iSpring Converter Pro.

First, click "iSpring Converter Pro" > "Publish" from the top menu.

Second, choose "WEB", and enter your PowerPoint presentation name in "Presentation title" filed.

Third, click "Output Options" > "Mobile (HTML5)", and you can preview your presentation in the right window.

Fourth, click "Publish" to publish your PowerPoint to iSpring Cloud. So you can play the iFrame content on any device.


Now, you must have known how to embed IFrame to PowerPoint freely and easily. In case that your PowerPoint presentation becomes out of date, just try to insert live HTML pages to your PPT using IFrame code, so you can have a good presentation. And for better presentation, you can also add narration to PowerPoint easily .

How to Add Live Web Pages in PowerPoint Presentations

You may find a live Web page useful when giving a business presentation that relies on real-time information. Instead of showing a slide containing a picture of old stock market data, you could impress your audience with a live Web page that displays current financial data from your favorite business site. PowerPoint does not come with a button that can display a live Web page, but you can invent one using a few PowerPoint tricks and a WebBrowser control that comes with the application.

Add WebBrowser Control

Launch PowerPoint and proceed to the next step if the ribbon already contains the Developer tab. Otherwise, right-click the ribbon, and then click "Customize the Ribbon" to display the Customize the Ribbon window. Place a check mark in the Developer check box located in the window's Main Tabs panel, and then click "OK" to place the Developer tab on the ribbon.

Click the "Developer" tab and move to the Controls section on the ribbon, where there's a small icon that looks like a wrench and a hammer. This is the More Controls button. Click that button, scroll through the list of controls, and then click "Microsoft Web Browser."

Click "OK" and then click location on the slide where you would like a Web page to appear. Hold down your left mouse button and drag the mouse to draw a WebBrowser control on the slide.

Click the ribbon's "Visual Basic" button to open the Visual Basic editor. Click "Insert," and then click "Module." The editor adds a window that allows you to paste code into it.

Paste the following code into that window:

Sub VisitURL() Dim url as Variant url = "INSERT_URL_HERE" Slide1.WebBrowser1.Navigate url End Sub

Replace "INSERT_URL_HERE" with the URL of the Web page you want to appear in the slide. Ensure that you enclose the URL in quotes, as shown above.

Add Action Button

Press "Alt-Q" to close the Visual Basic editor and return to your PowerPoint slide that contains the WebBrowser control. Click "Insert," and then click "Shapes" to display a drop-down menu. Scroll to the bottom of the menu and click one of the buttons in the Action Buttons section.

Click an area below the Web Browser, hold on your left mouse button and drag the mouse to draw a small button. The Action Settings dialog window opens when you release your left mouse button.

Click the "Run Macro" radio button to select it, and then click the drop-down menu below that button. The button contains a list of macros, including the one you created in the previous steps. That macro's name is VisitURL.

Click that macro to select it, and then click "OK." Press "F5" to preview the slide show. Click the slide’s button to make your Web page appear.

Embed in PowerPoint

You can embed charts in PowerPoint by using webviews. This allows charts inside a PowerPoint to be interactive, and automatically keep themselves up-to-date with new data and changes.

To start, you want to install the Web Viewer add-in to PowerPoint. You can find this by going to the Insert tab within PowerPoint, and from there clicking Get Add-ins . At that point, you will see a window open up, where you can search for web viewer .

embed website in powerpoint presentation

Once installed, a web viewer frame will be inserted into your current slide. If not, you can add it yourself by going to My Add-ins just below the Get Add-ins button.

Where the web viewer asks you to insert a URL, you want to insert one of the everviz embed links, these look like so:

You can find the embed code for the chart you want to add by opening a chart, clicking on Publish, and then showing the Iframe code. Keep in mind, you only want the snippet that is highlighted below:

embed website in powerpoint presentation

This link is indeed just an ordinary webpage, and you can open it in your browser to see your chart there. Anyway, clicking the Preview button in the bottom-left corner of the window should now show the chart inside the current slide.

Show Websites in PowerPoint

By Kurt Dupont

There are tools available to show websites on PowerPoint slides like LiveWeb and LiveSlides . I’m recommending them often. You can use that to draw a web browser object on your slide, and then specify the URL to show in there. When you run your slideshow, you will see that website on a given slide. Every time the slide is shown, the website output is rebuilding and displayed again on your television screen or other display. People often use this technique to grab legacy data from a reporting website or e.g. to show local weather information.

Show Websites in PowerPoint-01

This technique does have a few caveats because of the web-browser technology:

No PowerPoint Shape

In PowerPoint, you have great shapes like text boxes, tables, rectangles, etc. You can transform and modify these native PowerPoint shapes to fit your design needs. With LiveWeb and LiveSlides, this is not true. They basically place a web browser object on your slide. And even that is not a normal native PowerPoint shape that you can modify with shape editing tools in PowerPoint.

Not Editable

A text box or any other native PowerPoint shape can be formatted. Borders, fill colors, fonts, etc. can be changed, and font formatting such as bold, caps, shadows, and so on can be applied. What you display in a web browser shape, though, is static. The designer of the website determines the look and feel on your slideshow. You have no control beyond that.

On the other hand, you can use our DataPoint add-in for PowerPoint to get in raw data like weather , for example, and then use it within text boxes and images that you format as you deem fit.

No Brand or House Style

Since you have no control over the layout of the website, you cannot comply with your company’s design guidelines and house style. This results in the website’s appearance jarring with the rest of your presentation.

Website Build-up Visible

This may be the worst problem. Every time a slide is presented, a complete rebuild of the website is executed in front of the audience. You see an empty web browser, and then the text shows up, followed by images that are loaded one by one. Maybe you don’t mind, but in the professional digital signage or AV industry, this delayed technology is not acceptable. They want to see the website output in an instant.

So, is there a better way? Yes indeed, and we call this the DataPoint way.

The DataPoint Way

Use LiveSlides and LiveWeb when you don’t mind all the disadvantages listed above. However, if you want results that are different and more professional, then take a look at the DataPoint way.

DataPoint is also able to show websites on your slides but it uses a different technology. It takes an image of the website in the background and shows that up-to-date image on your slide. With this approach, you have the advantage that no build-up of the website is visible on your television screens or other displays. Loading a picture is very quick. You even have the option to transform that image into a circle or put a dark transparent layer over it.

DataPoint has two options to accomplish this objective. You can generate and grab that image locally on the display computer (while the slideshow is running), or you can use a server to generate the images for you.

Sometimes the technology used on websites is complicated, and the local website grabber technology is not to be able to capture exactly what you need. In that case, you are better off by using the server-side website grabber technology.

1. Local Capture

Everything starts by just inserting a normal and dummy images on your slide. Access the Insert tab of the Ribbon and click the Pictures button. In the resultant dialog box, browse to a picture that you can start with. Any picture will do. It will be replaced by your website in a moment. While you have this dummy picture selected, click the DataPoint | Web URL option, and the form shown in Figure 1 , below will open.

DataPoint Web URL Properties

Now, select or fill in these options:

Source: Local Website URL: Type in a web URL Width and Height : Add values as needed Timeout and Delay : Add values as needed URL refresh rate: Select the Only once at opening of the presentation option or select the Continuous updating option, and choose a time.

When done, click the OK button and DataPoint will procure a captured image of the website that you specified as the URL. This can take a few seconds to complete. Once done, the picture you inserted on your slide earlier, is replaced with the captured image of the website. You can resize this picture as you need.

Note that rather than setting the width and height of the image, you can check the option for a Full page image. When you check this option, DataPoint clears the height and will change the height accordingly to the content of the website.

Furthermore, you have an option to set a timeout and you can specify a delay before an image is taken. This can be handy if you don’t want to capture the first moment if you have some animation on the page and you want to delay the captured image to make sure that the animation is running or completed.

Finally, you can set the refresh rate. In Figure 1, above, we set DataPoint to refresh every 30 seconds the captured image of the website, to show changes.

2. Server-Side Capture

Local capturing will probably work for 90-95% of the websites. However, another technology is used where it is not possible to capture all information from some websites. Typically, this happens when you are missing a layer with some sources, such as traffic or weather info.

In such scenarios, DataPoint can now capture such websites via a remote web server. We have selected ApiFlash for this purpose.

ApiFlash Pricing

Sign up on the ApiFlash site , and you will be provided with an access key, that needs to added within the Access key text box, shown in Figure 2 , below.

DataPoint Web URL via Server-side Source

The rest of the options are all identical to Local capture.

Play your presentation, and every 30 seconds (or whatever value you specified), a new image will be captured and updated on your slide. This change happens very smoothly, and you will not even see content updating.
