Widget + Board View Settings Sync

In the app that I’m developing, the widget and the board views use very similar settings. I would really like a way for there to be universal settings so that the user doesn’t have to put in the same thing twice. Is something like that possible?


Hello there @jBoetticher!

As of today, each feature has its own settings and the settings can not be shared between app features.

As a workaround, you could listen to the selected settings using our SDK, save the selected values on your end (paired with the account) and then use them in the other feature.

Let me know what you think :slightly_smiling_face:


Hello again Matias!
That sounds like a workable solution. I assume that by saving it on my end, you’re suggesting that I use my database. Does Monday have an authorization solution for my own database? I don’t want a bad actor changing my user’s stuff!


Hello @jBoetticher!

Yes. Exactly. You can use your own database.

What kind of authorization solution are you referring to and where do you think the possible vulnerability could be?

If I use the userId or boardId in the request to change that user/board’s data, then anyone who knew that user/board’s id could change its configuration. Is there a way to make an auth token to ensure that a request is from a logged in user?

Hello again @jBoetticher!

Yes. If you want to use our API you will always need an API key to access / update / delete data.
