After spending about 11 hours setting up Notion, Zapier and my Discord integration with my team, I finally think I have a solid answer!

 

It requires a few steps, but I've manage to tag/ping my team members through Zapier, on Discord.

 

First steps first, we'll have to start with Notion, and set up a list of team members. I used the "Multi-select" property to populate with my teams names. You'll only have to type in the first part of their Discord name here, not the #, or @. In my case I had Lentille NU for myself.

 

After I set up my team, I went over to Zapier to set up my actions. Once the Notion database was updated, I could follow by finding my user tagged on Notion with a Discord "Find User" option. There is a delay prior to this, besides the point... Once I found my user, I managed to find their user ID. This is where I finally struck luck! Now we can use Zapier tagging options, eg <@12345690000>, or in my case <@ "User ID" > from the Find user function. This with the rest of my "Message Text" concludes my solution.

 

Here is a link to my template, feel free to copy :)
