I am attempting to integrate with Zapier and continue to see this same error when I try to build a connection from Airtable into Zapier:

You must have at least one "Last Modified Time" type column in your Table in order to use this Trigger.

I added the column with this Last Modified Time option, but my Zapier automation still cannot see the proper data and this error persists. I have double-checked the error and reset the Zapier connection multiple times.  Even went so far as to log in+ out of both Zapier and Airtable.    I have reset the field in AirTable over and over again. No changes in this error.....

Can anyone recommend further actions?

Sorry, I don’t know the answer to your question, so hopefully somebody else will be able to chime in below to help you solve your problem. However, you’re already beginning to see the tip of the iceberg of the problems with Zapier.

If you’re not already heavily invested in Zapier, my strongest personal & professional recommendation would be to ditch Zapier and switch to Make instead.

Make is INFINITELY more powerful & customizable than Zapier, yet it is SIGNIFICANTLY CHEAPER than Zapier. I wrote an entire post here comparing Make vs. Zapier, and I’ve assembled a bunch of Make training resources in this thread.

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

I've set up dozens of zaps without any issue, make sure your last modified time is in the table that you are using and then go back and retest the trigger to get new results that include the last modified time. That being said, yesterday our base was experiencing some issues that support said were related to a bug that has been fixed. This affected some of our zaps, maybe this is why you were having issues. Try it again today.
