Monday Document Writer

[ | version 3.1]

Connector

The connector is permitted for use of the platform background agent.

Connector processing type: Row by row!

The Monday Document Writer allows you to write formatted content into the Monday workDoc.

A workdoc is a flexible, multi-media whiteboard where you and your team can record all notes and ideas related to one central topic. By adding individual elements to your workdoc, all your loose thoughts and ideas can come together in one place. Find more on workDocs here and or here.

The input required for writing into the workDoc is the item id (pulseID) and the column id where the workDoc is located and the blocks of formatted content. The blocks include the definition of the type, after the block id and the content. The block content types, that can be written to the document: normal_text, large_title, medium_title, small_title, quote, bulleted_list, numbered_list, check_list, or code.

You can find the item id (pulseID) in the URL (/pulses/4600685851) when you are located on the respective item in the monday board.

Example: https://intelstudios.monday.com/boards/4296007778/pulses/4600685851

To find the column, use the Developers API playground and use GraphQL query

query {
  boards (ids: 4296947778) {
    items (ids: 4635685851) {
      column_values {
        value
        text
        id
      }
        }
    }
}
The column id will be in the id element of the column_values of the respective workDoc column.

The connector has an output including the block id and the content. The output is written into the defined item and workDock.
