The Broadcast View

 

Do you need to put your roadmap in your website? Send customers specific boards 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 Broadcast View! Publish your boards, embed them in your website, and make them accessible! 

Here at monday.com we decided to embed our Product Roadmap board in our website, to make it available to our users:

Take a look at that example here!

You can now do just that with your own boards using the Broadcast View! Please note that, as protecting your privacy is our top priority, search engines are not allowed to scan these pages.

You can then copy that URL, and you'll be able to share the link and access the published board anywhere with that link : 

 

 Note: Your published board refreshes itself every 15 seconds. Update your board in your account, and the published board will be automatically updated!

How to set up the published board in full screen?

Easy! Just make sure to add the term "/embed/" right after "view.monday.com/". For example:

If the URL of your published board is: https://view.monday.com/141487245-79526a91ab40653b647225f8068190c9

Add the term "/embed/" in the URL: https://view.monday.com/embed/141487245-79526a91ab40653b647225f8068190c9

Then, you will see the board in full screen:

How to zoom in your published board? 

If you want to enlarge and zoom in your board, you can just add at the end of the URL the phrase: "?zoom=2" for scaling the board 200%; "?zoom=1.5" for scaling 150%; "?zoom=1.2" for scaling 120%, and so on. Just change the number at the end depending on the percentage of zoom you want to see.

Example: 

Original URL: https://view.monday.com/embed/141487245-79526a91ab40653b647225f8068190c9

URL with 150% zoom: https://view.monday.com/embed/141487245-79526a91ab40653b647225f8068190c9?zoom=1.5
