How to install monday apps
The monday apps marketplace is where you can find monday apps to extend what your monday.com account can do. The apps that you will find in the marketplace have been built by external developers (not the monday.com team) and our very own monday developers.
Step 1: Access the monday apps marketplace
To find the monday apps marketplace, go to your profile picture/avatar on the bottom left corner of your account and click on "Apps marketplace".
Step 2: Browse the apps with ease
The marketplace contains a number of amazing apps to power up your reporting or allow you to integrate other platforms to tie up your workflows. All the apps are organized into categories (on the left side) which can help you filter out relevant apps for your industry.
You can also browse apps based on the feature type, to filter out apps that contain a specific view, widget, integration or template.
Lastly, you can search quickly and easily using the search bar at the top of the page to find apps based on specific keywords. Try "Zoom" or "Automations" to give it a go.
Step 3: Review an app's functionality
When you click on an app, you can learn more about the features and capabilities that it will add to your monday.com account. You can see the team that built this app and the contact information of the developers in case you need support installing or using the app.
Step 4: Install the app
When you're ready to install an app, click the install button on the top right of the page. Remember, apps can only be installed by admins on the account.
When you install an app, you will see a list of permissions that the app will have access to. From there click on "Install" at the bottom of the screen as shown below:
Step 5: Use the app!
Now that you've installed the app, its features are ready to use on your boards, dashboards and account. Once you've completed the installation, click on the "Use App" button on the top right of the page. Depending on the app chosen, this will lead you to the relevant setup screen, to complete setup. In our example, we will be prompted to select whether we'd like to add the view or the widget, which exact board or dashboard we'd like to add it to and in which workspace.
After following through each setup stage, the installed app will be opened up on the selected board or dashboard. For integrations added, the user will be redirected to the Integration store on the selected board.
Uninstall the app
Installed the wrong app and would like to remove it? No problem! To do so, head over to your profile picture/avatar on the left corner of your account. Click on "Admin", and then "Apps" from the list of options. You will see a list of all the apps you've installed on your account. Find the specific app and click "Uninstall".
If any apps have been updated and need to be reinstalled, click "Reinstall".
Security and the monday apps marketplace
Apps in our marketplace built by external developers are reviewed by our team. However, we cannot certify the functionality or security of each app. When you install an app, you will see a list of permissions that the app will have access to. We strongly encourage you to review each app and the permissions thoroughly before adding it to your account. To understand more about the app marketplace security, check this out.
How to build your own app
The monday apps framework
The monday apps framework is how the magic happens. The framework allows developers to build views, widgets and integrations in a low-code environment. We give you the tools to build views and recipes, and you can build whatever your team needs.
To get started and build your first monday app, check out our Builders Homepage which is a one-stop shop that contains links to our apps and API documentation. You can see examples of apps that were built by our team here: monday apps Framework

Not a Developer? Thats OK, you can still use the apps!
If you're someone who wants to use apps and not build them, simply download existing apps from the apps marketplace or head over to our community.
Help with apps from the apps marketplace
Each marketplace app has a link to the app developer's email address (shown above). Since many of our apps are built by external developers, we encourage you to reach out to the developer if you have any questions about the app's functionality.
Help with building your own app
If you've checked out the documentation above and need further support with our API or apps framework, take a look at our Developers' Community.
