If you would like to filter across your monday.com account, you may need Search Everything which is only available on our Standard, Pro, and Enterprise plan.

  • Limited Items

On the Individual Plan, you are limited to 200 items. You can have as many boards as you want in the account as long as the total number of items doesn't go over your item limit. To earn more items, you can invite your friends to try out the platform. Once they confirm, you will receive an additional 100 items.

  • 1 board/dashboard

Dashboards are a great way to display what's important in one place. With 15 widgets you can now understand project progress, track budget, estimate your teammates' workload, and much more! With the Individual Plan, you can create as many dashboards and widgets as you’d like. But each dashboard can only contain information from 1 board.
