How do I add, delete or customize a pulse?

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

How do I add a pulse?

To add a pulse to a board, simply click into the box which says + Create a New Item (pulse) and type what you want the pulse to say.  Then press Enter.

How to sort my pulses?

Sorting your pulses is a really easy way to keep yourself organized.  It helps you understand what you have to do in order to get your tasks done. You are able to sort your pulses in two different ways.

  • First way

Manually drag and drop pulses into the order you want them to be in:

  • Second way

You can also use the sorting option found above each column in each group of pulses. Clicking on the sort button once will sort your pulses one way. Clicking it again will sort them the opposite way.

Once you have sorted a column, you can click on the tick button to the left of the sort button to save the sort. You will see a pop up which will ask you if you want to save the sort for just the specific group you sorted or for the entire board.

 Note: To sort according to the opposite order, i.e. Z-A instead of A-Z, click the sort button twice. To undo the sort, click on the 'x' located on the right of the sort button.
