Hello there, thanks for reading.
We’d like to automatically connect and disconnect boards to/from a dashboard. This is ideally based on a custom integration-recipe. Within this integration recipe we’ll be able to use both the SDK and the API-calls.
After reading the documentation for a while and a bit of experimenting with the API-playground, I could not find a definitive answer to my questions: if this is possible and how to do this.
Help would be very much appreciated!
Hello there @MGM and welcome to the community!
I hope you like it here
If I understand correctly what you are trying to do, you want to connect/disconnect a board to a dashboard using a recipe (have a trigger that when the event occurs, it connects/disconnects the board).
There is no way of doing that as of today since we do not have a native action for that and that action is also not available to be performed via API.
Let me know if you have any other questions
Hello there @Matias.Monday,
Thank you alot for your swift reply. This has raised some new questions:
Is this point currently under development by any chance?
Can you please verify that, when I’m using the SDK and creating a custom dashboard view, I’ll still be able to get and view practically all the data within the monday-environment (as long as i need it, without any other steps in between).
My other guess to solve my issue would be writing RPA, but I try to stay away from these solutions due to high margin of error and maintenance. – what are your thoughts about this?
Hello again @MGM!
It looks like this feature will not be available any time soon.
You can check our changelogs for the API and for the apps framework. We announce changes here!
I did not understand your question about viewing “practically all” the data. Can you please elaborate on that?
I do not have experience with RPA and do not know about accounts using it so I would not be able to provide an opinion about it.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Following this post.
Adding to what @MGM is asking; I am keen on developing a digital signage to display my teams dashboards.
Are there any API’s I could call to access to real time feed of my dashboard?
Hello there @adithya-krishna!
I am not sure I understand the question.
You want an API call to get information from a dashboard?
If so, the information from dashboards actually comes from boards. You can get the information inside those boards but there are no queries to get information directly from a dashboard.
Hi Matias, thank you for getting back.
I’m using the dashboards feature to create one for my team.
I wanted to know if there are API calls I can make to display that as a rotating dashboard from multiple teams. For instance, let’s assume I have three teams on Monday, and each team has one dashboard, I want to extract the three dashboards, one by one to develop a rolling board at my office televisions.
Is there any ways to extract the board using API calls?
Hello again @adithya-krishna,
There is no way of getting the URL of the dashboard view of a board via API.
The closest your could do is either:
- Share your dashboards with the “embed” feature (click on the three dots next to the dashboards name and then on "Share settings)
- If you only want to do this via API, you could get the information from the boards and then process it on your end and display it in your screens as desired (this will require coding)
Let me know if you have any other questions!
