Hi @kimie0669, I'm an AI assistant for Vapi. I'll analyze available sources and get back to you shortly.

### Answer Retrieving data from make.com into Vapi, particularly for a use case like fetching a string (field) from Airtable, involves utilizing Vapi's ability to handle external API calls or function calling capabilities. While the information sources do not directly provide an example for make.com specifically, the concept can be applied by creating custom functions within Vapi that can make HTTP requests to external services, like make.com or directly to Airtable, and then use the retrieved data within your Vapi voice AI application. To achieve this, you might consider creating a custom function in your Vapi assistant that makes an HTTP request to an endpoint (which could be a make.com webhook or directly to the Airtable API) to fetch the required data. You would then use this function within your assistant's conversation flow to retrieve and utilize the data as needed. Although a direct example is not provided in the provided documents, the concept of incorporating external data into Vapi is supported through its function calling capabilities and the ability to integrate with various APIs and services [(1)]() . Remember to ensure that you have the appropriate authentication and permissions set up on the make.com or Airtable side to allow Vapi to access the data securely. For more detailed guidance on creating custom functions and integrating external APIs with Vapi, you might find it helpful to explore the documentation and examples provided by Vapi, such as the "[Function Calling]()" section and "[Pizza Website Example 🍕]()" for insights on how to structure interactions and function calls [(2)]() .
