April new features wrap-up

Another month has passed, so you know what time it is… our April New Features Wrap-Up! This month we had a mix of features released, including some that came into full release after being in development and/or gradual release. As always, we want to hear from you, so share what you think of the new releases in the comments below.

Before we start, as a quick refresher, please take a look at the release status definitions below :arrow_down:

In development - Our team is working on finalizing this feature. We do not have an exact release date, but you can expect to see it soon! That said, that development status is subject to change; however, we will keep you updated throughout the month in our community.

Gradual Release - This feature is being released gradually, you can expect to see the feature in your account in the coming weeks

Released - This feature is released and you should see it in your account.

To kick us off, let’s explore the features that were fully released this month which you should see active in your account :eyes:

:mag_right: Dedicated Workform automation recipes: In response to growing confusion surrounding form submission notifications, we have now introduced a Workforms submission trigger. This update allows for automated actions solely based on the submission of a form. Exciting?! We know!

:mag_right: Account default notification settings: Now admins have the ability to define email notification settings within their account so that new users will acquire these settings by default. This release will aid in better email notification management, and avoid the overwhelming influx of unnecessary notifications.

:mag_right:Gantt export to PDF: Another feature that has recently come out of development is our Gantt to PDF export! The exported document now displays the full width and length of the Gantt - a (welcomed!) improvement from its previous state where only part of the Gantt was displayed.

:mag_right: Remove user profile fields: You asked, we listened! Now our Admin users have the ability to disable fields in user profiles that they deem private and confidential from the platform.

:mag_right: View full contents of “notify” automations: Another exciting update was the release of the “read more” option in notification messages via the notification panel. This release enables users to conveniently view the entire contents of an automation notification so crucial details aren’t missed :white_check_mark:

:mag_right: Improved seat management on Enterprise: Admins now can manage departments within their company for better account organization and for a clearer understanding of users per department. This release will enable admins to monitor whether specific departments are using more or less seats than needed.

Now that we’ve explored our fully released features, let’s check out those features that are being gradually released to accounts - as such, some users may see these features while others may not just yet, so keep your eye out :eyes:

:mag_right: Mass emailing on Sales CRM: Our Sales CRM product users will soon be able to bulk send emails via the Emails and Activities App. This development was in response to growing demand for improved mass emailing capabilities to deliver tailored experiences to audiences at scale. Tracking the success of your email campaign has never been easier :tada:

Last but not least, we wanted to let you know of an exciting feature that is currently in development:

:mag_right: Sync events from monday.com to Github: We are currently in the process of developing a two-way sync between the platform and Github! Very soon users will be able to establish a sync between monday.com back to GitHub and achieve that two-way sync you’ve been waiting for :white_check_mark:

As we near the end of our wrap-up, we now want to draw your attention to a very exciting initiative we are working on bringing to life - ICYMI (in case you missed it :eyes:) this month we officially announced that we are launching a beta version of monday AI assistant! The monday AI assistant will include a collection of innovative apps built internally on the same monday AI assistant infrastructure where external developers will be able to build apps for the monday marketplace. Tell us you’re excited?! :robot:

Read more about it here.

@BiancaT Please look at Start and End times for date columns. Desperately needed to make the calendar useful within Monday.

Agreed. Please give us event duration… it’s been years of asking for this day 1 feature

Same here, we want to use Monday to schedule our installing services. Every pieces are there, except for the timeline column that does’nt support hours. Workaround are surely possible, but the support for hours would make things so much simpler.

Why has there been no effort to release a change that the Monday.com community has been asking for, over the last several years in fact if you look through all the separate threads on the Community pages, which is the ability to set automations across multiple boards? It says it’s “on the roadmap” but how long do you expect customers to wait for this? I still haven’t had a response from the Monday.com admin when I’ve asked for updates. It’s ridiculous that on a platform supposedly designed to create more efficient workflows, we have to apply changes to the same automation in over 200 boards because there is no way to update it once and apply it to multiple boards. Any way to set an automation across an entire account? - #61 by Wh1skeyJack

Did you see it live yet? I still haven’t despite “fully rolled out.”

Agreed – I’m getting more and more frustrated at the lack of many basic features the deeper my org is getting into using Monday.

Hey @Dly215 - you need to go to Integrations and search for workforms.

Please target the Connected Boards experience for future development! There are a ton of simple and obvious functions and user experiences that need to happen to make Connected Boards really shine. It’s frustrating when it doesn’t do something that seems so obvious.
