Monday API - Updating Column Descriptions

Hi - Can I update column description via API? Trying to build dynamic forms and the only issue I’m having is I am not able to find documentation on updating column description via API.

Hey there,

That’s a great questioon! At this time, it is not possible to update the column description, or create a column with descriptions.

Could you please provide further detail into your current workflow? I’m curious to learn as to how column descriptions via the API would be useful, in your use case.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon! :slight_smile:


Hey Alex, i realized I might be asking this wrong. We like using forms and want to be able to programmatically create them using the Monday API…one thing it looks like we cannot do is update the “description” field of the form via the API.

Thanks for the help!

Ah, got it. I’m afraid that isn’t an option either, at this time, and it is highly unlikely to be implemented anytime soon :frowning: Thank you for bringing this to our attention, though!
