Can't search 'Select' fields on Notion?

Hey.

So I was looking at the integration with Notion with the intention to update an item, so I created a search step first. However, in my attempt to search, I noticed it only really wants to search text based field property on Notion. Whereas I have a ‘Select’ field property, and it doesn’t pick that up to search it.

Reason being I want to search Email Address which is fine but I also awant to search my Profile ‘Select’ field which doesn’t appear.

Is there any other way to do this?

Thanks

@TokyoChamp would you mind sharing screenshots from your Zap steps, that will make more sense

Hi @TokyoChamp 

Good question.

Help: https://help.zapier.com/hc/en-us/articles/8496040151821-Common-problems-with-Notion-on-Zapier

I can't see all fields in my Zap

Not all Notion property types are supported in Zapier. The following property types are not supported:
  • Files and media
  • Formulas
  • Relations
  • Rollups
  • Status
These property types will not appear in your triggers or actions.

SELECT appears to be a supported field though, as I’m able to create it or update it, but I can’t seem to use it to SEARCH.

PROFILE

Screenshots shows the “Create” section of the Notion Find Zap action.

We would need to see more screenshots with the options above this section.

 

Basically, If I have a master database, with various profiles, some people name and email might be the same but they have 2 different profiles like Memberships

If I search just name it could find more than one value.

So ideally i’d like to search both name and profile but this isn’t possible.

Yet, I can search name and if not found i can create and update the Profile feild, but I can’t seem to use it to search unless it’s a text based field.
