We are building a board app that displays data from our platform (ActivTrak) to users in their monday.com accounts. There is not necessarily a 1:1 match between users of both platforms, so for MVP we’ve chosen some account-level insights that are safe to share with all monday.com users, whether or not they’re personally generating data in ActivTrak.
Here’s what’s not clear to us:
- Are board apps installed at the account level (say, by an admin) and appear for all users in that account or do they have to be installed individually by each user?
- Can board apps be authenticated by a single user for that entire account or does each user need to have a corresponding user account in both systems to use it?
- Can we rely on the Storage API (in beta) to store secure data, like tokens?
We’ve been on seminars, read the docs, and still don’t have a clear understanding of these integration patterns. Thanks in advance!
