Airtable: attachments not sending to Airtable.

    Asked on April 09, 2019 at 03:08 PM
    In the meantime, can you please help me figure out why the attachments are not being sent through to Airtable from JotForm via Zapier, per my first question in this thread? I have been in contact with Zapier and they directed me to you since this is a JotForm issue.

    Please let me know ASAP.

    I have been testing the Zapier integration and I can see the files are transferring properly on my end, I have cloned your form and this is what I see: 

    1. JotForm submission: 


    2. Zapier response: 


    3. Record on Airtable: 


    May you please let us know how are you receiving the data on your end?

    This is what the data looks like on my end:

    1. JotForm submission - uploaded a test document:

    2. Zapier response (from task history in the zap) - it says the zap went through successfully with no errors - below is the field corresponding to the JotForm submission above:

    Hi @startuphealth

    Can you please try setting the upload fields to disallow multiple file attachments and then check if attachments are showing up in Airtable?

    Hi Denis, I limited the number of files for each field with attachments to 1, and tried testing again with a new form entry. Unfortunately every other field in the JotForm is still getting through to Airtable except for the attachments - I'm still seeing blank fields in Airtable where documents should be.

    I understand that you are trying to accomplish this through Zapier. I have also tested through our own integration we have with Airtable:

    But the file was not sent even though the file type was created in Airtable, and the fields were matched correctly:

    AirTable Field:




    I will report this to our back-end team to check further why the upload field will not transfer. You will be updated via this thread.

    If "Require log-in to view uploaded files." is checked in your account settings, Airtable could not fetch your attachments. 

    To send your uploaded files to Airtable, please kindly go to your account settings page then go to Settings section and uncheck the "Require log-in to view uploaded files." option.

    Please check the screenshot below:
