What are the board views?

At monday.com, we love to make everything visual: colors, graphs, shapes... So, we came up with the amazing board views. The board views allow you to visualize your board's information in multiple views. 📊 📈 📉


Tip:  You can watch our recorded board views webinar right here :)


How do I add it?

To add a board view, click on the arrow next to the button "main table" located n the top left of your board. Select add a view as below: 


Click on any of the view to create a new view. You can also click on "more view" to access our view center with all our amazing options. 


To add a view to your board, click on "add to board". You can also vote for your favorite view by clicking on the heart located at the bottom ❤️


How does it work?

Once you've added a view to your board, you can switch back to your main board view in just one click. Click on the view's name located on the top left of your board and select the option "main table" 


You can add multiple views to your board and switch back and forth from this menu. You can also delete a view by hovering your mouse on the name of the view and clicking on the trash bin icon: 



Can I see a view simultaneously with the table view?  

You can choose to see a view in split-screen mode with the table view below. To do so, click on the settings icon located on the top right of your screen and select "split view" as below: 


This view selection is personal will be saved across all boards for that view type. This means if you choose to view the Timeline View "split screen" on one board, it will show up this way on all boards for which you have a Timeline View set up. Additionally, this view setting will only be set up this way for your user in the account.



Can I change the background color?

You sure can! You can either choose a light mode 💡or a dark mode ⚫️. To do so, click on the three dots located on the upper right and select "dark mode" or "light mode" as below: 



Can I set a default view?

Do you want to make sure that everyone who views your board is receiving the board's data in the most efficient way possible? You can! Board owners can set a default view for all board viewers and subscribers! This means that everyone who opens up your board will automatically see the default view rather than the "Main Table" view. 

To set a default view, open the views menu and click the 3 dot menu beside the view you wish to select (it must first be added to your board). Next, click "Set as board default" as we've done below: 


The default can be switched at any time by following these steps with a different view, including the Main Table view. 


Note:  Only board owners can set default views, and they will default for all viewers and subscribers. Don't worry, team members can still view all other views on the board at any time. 



If a team member opens a different board view, it will become their personal default! The next time they open this board, it will open up automatically to their last-viewed board view rather than the default view.  


Can I share my views publicly?

Do you need to put your roadmap in your website? Send customers specific boards or views without needing them to log in? Get all the team in sync by putting a board in a TV in your office? You are now able to do just that with the "share views". 



Note:  You can currently apply the share view on your board, timeline, chart and calendar.


Publish your boards, embed them in your website, and make them accessible to everyone on the web! Check out how it works right here.
