The Basics of Items

Your monday.com boards are made up of groups of items. An item is an individual row (or line item) in a group. The content of an item is totally up to you and will depend on what the board's plan is — from a list of projects to weekly tasks.

 

Adding an item

To add an item to a board, simply click into the box which says + Add and type what you want the item to say.  Then press Enter.

Setting a default value for your item

You can quickly and easily set up default values for all items on your board by going to the board's toolbar menu and selecting "Item default values" as below:

Next, you will be able to define what values you would like to set as default, and for which exact columns.

Changing the height of your item

Do you have long item names which make it difficult to see what's written in a glance?  Hovering over every item become tiresome for you? You can change the item's height to ensure that you can see as little or as much on each item. 

To change the item height, go to board's toolbar menu and select "Item height".

When a user changes a board's item height, it is changed for himself only - any other visitors to the board will see the default single heightץ

Note: When changing the item height on a board, it is changed for that team member only - all other team members will see the default single height.
