Airtable to Notion Zap (upload file and enable "call out" in content)

Hi, I am trying to set up a Zap that will create a new database in Notion. I have successfully exported the most of the contents from Airtable to Notion except for the file upload section. It seems that fields that store files in Notion are not available in the fields when setting up action. Anyone knows how to troubleshoot this?  

Secondly, is there a way to enable call  out feature from Zap so that it appears as an output in Notion? 

Thank you.

Hi @twentyteam 

Good question.

I can't see all fields

The following Notion field types are not supported:

  • Files and media
  • Formulas
  • Relations
  • Rollups
  • Status

If you have fields that belong to one of these field types, they won't appear in Zapier.


From the Notion API docs:

Uploading files and media via the Notion API

The API currently does not support uploading new files.



Files and media stored and hosted externally (Recommended)

Users can add externally hosted files and other media to Notion using the API. The developer is responsible for the asset and making it available via a secure URL.


Add files and media via the Notion API

For details on how to add externally hosted files and media to a page or database, reference to the API reference.
