Connect Boards Column as a field in Forms

Our company handles a growing list of clients (and their contact details) on Board A.
However, Board B is where we receive our requests with a request form that can be used by any of the clients.

How can the clients tag themselves on the Form (from Board B) not using Text Column nor updating a Dropdown List manually every time Board A is updated?

I was hoping it was possible through Connect Boards Column as a converted Dropdown Column.

Best template example is the Customer Onboarding Template.


Board A is the list of Contacts or Clients:

Board B is the hypothetical request board, with Client as Connected Boards Column:

Instead of manually connecting the items using the Connect Boards column, can it be a converted Dropdown list on Forms?

Since the boards are already connected, it’s just a matter of making the item connection.

[Hope this can be done - I think this is very useful for organizations that handles SEVERAL Clients]

Thank you for taking the time to read my idea. :grin:

I could use this feature also.

Hi all - there is an App called Superform which gives some additional functionality around forms and connected boards.


I use Superform, which is good because it handles connected and mirror columns, but we’re paying $80/mo for 500 form submissions for a service that I think should be included with monday’s WorkForms.


me too! I’m surprised it’s not already a feature …

Hey @Prajwal

Nachliel from Easyapps here

Our Monday form builder app, Easyform, supports Connected Boards questions, allowing you to show the items of Board B as options in a dropdown question in a Board A form:
Organization connected board Board

Other features of our connected boards column are

  • Limiting selection to a single item
  • Displaying items from multiple connected boards
  • Limiting select options to items from specific boards where a column is connected to multiple boards
  • Pro plan feature - item default values support - set default values for connected board columns that are hidden in the form.

In addition to that, we offer:

  • Upload files to your board’s file columns, with support for:
    • Allowing only specific file types, such as images or pdf
    • Limiting the number of files that can be uploaded
    • Setting a maximum for file size
    • Manually retrying uploads if some or all of them failed
  • Set default values for the response item’s hidden group, status, connected board, and dropdown columns. To do so, select Item default values from the Settings menu.
  • Add the item’s group as just another field to the form.
  • Control the page’s top margin with the ability to set different values for desktop and mobile. To do so, select Page from the Settings menu.
