About the monday apps marketplace
With the monday apps marketplace, you can find ready-made apps to expand the capabilities of the monday.com platform and fit the unique needs of your business’s workflows, processes, and projects. The apps marketplace contains apps developed by third-party developers as well as apps built by the monday team using the apps framework. By using monday apps, you can analyze and visualize your data in new ways and collaborate more effectively across your organization.
To install a monday app on your own account, follow the steps below!
- Step 1: Access the monday apps marketplace
To find the monday apps marketplace, click on the small puzzle icon on the top right of your account. Alternatively, you can also go to your profile picture on the top right corner of your account and click on "Apps marketplace" to locate it.
- Step 2: Browse and filter 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 streamline up your workflows.
To locate the app that you desire, you can browse the categories on the left side, use our filter on the top right of the marketplace, sort according to various parameters, or simply use free text to search exactly what you're looking for!
- Step 3: Review an app's functionality
When you click on an app, you can scroll down on the app's main page to learn more about the features and capabilities that it will add to your monday.com account, the pricing, security & compliance, permissions it requires and more! From here, you can also 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: Test the app (optional)
Some apps offer a free demo experience that allows you to test the app before installing it. With just the click of a button, you can create a test account where you can see all of the app's features and functionality!
Want to know one of the best parts? The test account doesn't use any of your account data, so you don't need admin approval to try it out. All you have to do is click the "App demo" button on the app's main page to use the demo experience!
- Step 5: Install the app
When you're ready to install an app, click on the blue "Install app" button. Then, select if you'd like the app to be added to all workspaces, or to a specific workspace on your account, and click on "Install" again to proceed.
If you're not an account admin, instead of the "Install app" button, you'll notice that it says "Request to add" instead. Clicking on this will send a request to your admins to approve the app installation!
- Step 6: Use the app
Now that you've installed the app, its ready to use on your account! Once you've completed the installation, the installed app will be opened up on the selected board or dashboard. For integrations added, you will be redirected to the Integrations Center on the selected board so you can begin using your app right away.
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. For this reason, we recommend to view the "Security & compliance" section within each app page to get a full picture of an app's security.
Additionally, 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.
Building your own app
The monday apps 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. Check out our developers documentation here for further assistance!
- Help with apps from the apps marketplace
Since many of our apps are built by external developers, we encourage you to reach out to the developer directly if you have any questions about the app's functionality.
Each marketplace app page has a link to contact the developer who created the app. Simply click on your app of choice and you'll find resources on the righthand side for you to use!
