All things you can do in the updates section

The updates section allows you and your team to communicate, social media style, inside an item, keeping all the conversations about a specific task or project in the same place and in context. There are so many cool things you can do with this section! Let's have a look 👀

Pinning important updates

If you need to keep one particular update at the top of your updates feed, all you need to do is pin it to the top! Once you pin the update, it will stay there, even as your team continues to add more updates to that feed. 

   

Bookmark a post

It's like an old school thumbtack board, bookmarking an important post to refer to frequently! Or think of it as a "favorite post." Once you bookmark your post, you can find it in your Inbox.

Why are some updates blue and some grey?

Wondering why this happens?

Whenever an update is grey, it means that no one posted any new updates for more than 7 days. In the opposite, if your update is blue, it means the last update is from 7 days or less. 
 

Share an update in an email

You can now share updates via email! You can send the update in an email to any email address, even if they are not users in your account or in monday.com at all.

 

    
 
You can use this to allow clients the ability to report through email but still keep your reports in the context of projects in the platform.
