Would it be possible to activate an automation in Airtable (send a form), with a trigger in Figma?
Every time someone gets tagged in Figma, the form should be send to the tagged person.

Hmm, both Zapier and Make don't have integrations with Figma so this can't be done easily I'm afraid.  Figma does have webhooks, but I didn't see anything for user tagging on there.  User tagging activity might be in the "File Update" webhook, and if it was you'd need to do some filtering?  Assuming that works, you could then trigger an automation with another webhook via Airtable to send them an email

As Adam mentioned above, this is very easy to setup using Figma’s outbound webhooks.

However, you won’t be able to receive this data directly into Airtable’s inbound webhooks unless you write your own custom Javascript programming code to parse the users who were tagged in Figma.

But the quickest, easiest, no-code way to do this — which doesn’t require you having any programming code knowledge at all — is to use Make’s custom inbound webhooks to  receive the data from Figma.

Then, you can use Make’s Airtable automations to do whatever you’d like to do in Airtable.

If you’ve never used Make before, I’ve assembled a bunch of Make training resources in this thread: https://air.tableforums.com/t/make-com-basic-navigation-tips/277

I also give live demonstrations of how to use Make in many of my Airtable podcast appearances here:

For example, you’ll need to know how to work with arrays, which I cover in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLqssva4liHRwHhQIpTXekG8WObEoyC2F1&v=sKPyG0HZCYY

p.s. If your company has a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld

p.s. I should also mention that Make natively supports Figma actions and searches and API calls, but not triggers… which would require you to setup your own webhooks as mentioned above.

Thanks, both!
