Updating an Item in Notion seems to ignore the 'content' field

I have a zap that is updating a Notion item. All of the fields update correctly, except the bottom ‘content’ field does not have the Markdown option and it puts a link like plain text. 

Is it possible to add it manually in the content bottom?

Thank you!

Hi there @ZapAle,

Welcome to the Community! 🎉

I did some digging into this, and it seems like the “Update Database Item” action doesn’t support markdowns. However, we have an existing feature request for this exact functionality.

I have added you as another interested member to the feature request. That does a few things:

  • Bring this to the attention of the integration developers
  • Help track interest in this feature being implemented
  • Allows us to notify you via email if this feature becomes available in the future

While I don't have an ETA on when this feature might be implemented, we will notify you via email if it is!

Hopefully, this helps.
