Attachment File Names Are Lost If Added Via API


I’m seeing a problem with using Zapier to add files to attachment fields in AirTable. The file itself comes through when added via a Zap, but the issue seems to be that the file name and extension is replaced with the name “file”.

This is a screenshot of a file that was originally uploaded via Cognito Forms, then added to AirTable via Zapier. As you can see at the top of the screen, the original file name (PartnerSlide_SARA_16.pdf) has now been replaced with the string “file”.

This has caused some serious issues for us. I’ve tracked down the issue to something related to AirTable as modifying the Zap to send the same file from Cognito Forms to Google Drive results in the file being written to Google Drive with the filename in-tact.
