Airtable & Buffer: Unable to Schedule Post with Multiple Images

Hi all, pretty new to Zapier so would appreciate any help I can get!


The Zap I'm trying to create is "Add to Buffer Schedule" when "New Record is made in AirTable". In my AirTable, I have an "Image Attachment" field, which will translate to the photo URL in my Buffer scheduled post.


AirTable allows me to upload multiple images to the attachment field, however, when a record has more than one image, the Zap will fail. The Zap will only be successful when there is only one image in the Attachment field.


I tried a workaround by adding multiple attachment fields in AirTable, (i.e Image #1, Image #2...) but if I added both those fields to the Zap, it fails too.


This isn't ideal, as I know for a fact that Buffer does allow up to 4 images per post. Any insight would be appreciated!

Hi @tmk

So, while Buffer the app supports up to 4 images per post, right now, their Zapier integration only supports posting 1 image per post.

Apps build and maintain their own integrations on the Zapier platform, so it might be a good idea to contact Buffer and request that they update their integration to support posting multiple images.
