I have a zap that is updating a Notion item. all of the fields update correctly, except the bottom ‘content’ field is never updated. The footnote mentions “Optionally append some text to the database item” which suggests any content in that box will be appending to the page content of the Notion item, but I’m not seeing that behavior. The page content is entirely unchanged, even though all of the other fields are properly updated.
Is this a known issue? Is there something else that needs to be done to append data to a Notion item’s content?

I’m so sorry your Zap isn’t updating items in Notion as expected. I’ve done some digging on this and you’re quite right! It seems that there is a known issue with the Notion integration where the Update Database Item action is not updating the content field.

Has anyone figured out a fix? Can I append content to the end of my notion database cards as advertised?

Hi, I also am facing the same problem. My Zapier is not getting triggered whenever I add a new item to my Notion Database. Is there some other way I can get around this problem?
