Google Doc Table Embeds

Embed tables from Google Docs directly in your Webflow pages.


Why Google Docs?


  • Free

  • Solid administration

    • Easy to update

    • Easy to control secure access to the Google Doc

    • Easy to re-order rows or columns

    • Easy to add/remove rows or columns

    • Easy to add images and links

    • Easy colspan and rowspan options

    • Can place multiple tables in the same Google Doc, and reference the one you want

  • Flexible

    • Supports paragraph style content

    • Images

    • List style content

    • Links

  • Supports unique elements like Smart chips


  • Styles like highlighting, text color and cell background color do not pass through

    • This is a positive if you want tight control in the design

  • Styling must be done in custom CSS, or via themes

  • Not dynamically responsive

    • We can e.g. adjust font sizes but not rearrange columns to rows

Embed content from Google Docs directly in your Webflow pages.

Usage Notes

First create your Google Doc;

  • Create your doc in any drive you like

  • Set its access to readonly with the link

  • Get the URL, e.g.

Embed in your Webflow Site

Create an HTML Embed in your page, or within a rich text element, and paste the below HTML in;

<script type="sygnal/embed" wfu-embed-type="googledoc" wfu-embed-version="1">
  "src": "YOUR-LINK-HERE",
  "selector": "table",
  "index": 0,
  "theme": "default",
  "adminLink": true

Paste your link as the YOUR-LINK-HERE value.

If you have more than one table in the Google doc, identify the one you want by index. The first on is index 0, the second is 1, and so on.

If you do not want the admin link to appear in the corner for easy access, you can set that to false.

Whatever modifications you make, the content must be valid JSON.
