How to manage your account's apps

 

Who can use this feature:
Admins only

 

As an admin, you have unique capabilities that allow you to install and uninstall apps, review requests to install apps, pay for and update apps, and edit app permissions. 

The "Administration" section of monday is an entire space dedicated to apps where you can access each of these capabilities. In this article, you'll learn everything you need to know to manage your account's apps successfully. Let's get started!

 

 Installing apps

Account admins are the only users who can install apps on accounts. To learn how to install an app on your account, check this out!

 

 Reviewing requests to install apps

Whenever another user tries to install an app, monday automatically sends a request to the account admins. These requests are compiled in the "Pending Installs" tab, but you will also receive an email every time an installation request occurs. The app won't be installed until the request is approved. 

 

To help the admin determine whether or not to accept a request, the requestor can submit an explanation of their needs.

You can manage these requests by clicking on your profile in the top right corner and selecting "Administration". Click "Apps" on the left-side menu, and the "Pending Installs" tab will appear underneath the page's title:

Click "Install" for the app you want to install, or click "X" to reject the request. You can also click on the three-dot menu to view more information about the app!  

 

 Paying for apps

When you install an app to your account, you have to select which plan you want to sign up for. Many apps offer free or trial plans that allow you to try out the app in addition to paid plans. You can always upgrade from a free plan to a higher tier, or sign up for a paid plan after your trial. 

All app plan management is done by clicking your profile in the top right corner and selecting "Administration". Click "Apps" to open a list of the apps installed on your account. If you have a free plan that can be upgraded to a paid plan, or if your plan expires (trial or paid), you will see a green "See plans" button. Click the button and select the plan you want to subscribe to!

Tip: You can also follow these steps to pay for the app from the installed apps page!

 

 Updating apps

Developers continuously make improvements and fixes to their apps, and these updates are shared with users through new app versions. Most changes are automatically pushed to users and don't require any manual updates, but some updates, like permissions or scope changes, must be installed by an admin. 

To do so, click your profile in the top right corner and select "Administration". Click "Apps" from the left side menu to open a list of the apps installed on your account. All apps that need to be updated will have an "Update" button next to the three dots. Click the button and follow the prompts to update your app!

 Editing the app's permissions

As an account admin, you can easily update the app's permissions to add or remove it from a workspace! Click on your profile in the top right corner and select "Administration". Click "Apps" from the left-side menu. Find the app you want to edit, click the three dots, and select "Permissions". This opens a window where you can add the app to all or specific workspaces:

You can also use this feature to manage app access on your account!  

 

 Uninstalling apps

Installed an app to your account and want to remove it? No problem! As an account admin, you can easily remove an app from your account in just a few steps. 

Click on your profile in the top right corner and select "Administration". Click "Apps" from the left-side menu. Find the app you want to uninstall, click the three dots, and select "Uninstall". A pop-up menu will appear where you can click the blue "Uninstall" button. Doing so will immediately uninstall the app and remove all of the app features from your account!
