Communicate in context
Whether your items are set up as projects, clients, or something else, you can use the Updates Section to keep your conversation in context. From checklists used to stay on task to bullet points for note-taking during meetings, the Updates Section will help to keep you organized while promoting transparency and the quick sharing of information.
You can also @ mention teammates to get their attention or to praise their progress. It's never a bad time to celebrate your team's accomplishments!
Never miss a post
Make sure that you never miss an update, like, or reply. Notifications keep you in-the-loop.
On monday.com, you can receive notifications in four different ways: via the bell icon within the platform, in your monday.com inbox, via email, or mobile. Each of these avenues offers different benefits. If you want to keep up with everything on the boards where you're subscribed, the inbox is for you. But if you only want to review the notifications that are most relevant to you, check out the bell icon:
If you're receiving too many notifications, not to worry. You can choose which notifications you'll receive. Check out our Notifications article for more information.
Need to get in touch instantly? Slack is ideal for that.
With our Slack Integration, you can turn updates into Slack messages and have them sent to a channel or to an individual user. With this integration, everyone will have the most up-to-date information! Now you can work from both platforms while staying in sync.
The integration also works the other way around. That's right! You can create items and updates right in the middle of a Slack conversation. This way, nothing ever gets lost in your day-to-day.
Check out the Slack Integration article linked above for details on how to set up this integration.

Even while working remotely, you can still meet face-to-face. Stay connected with our Zoom Integration. This integration helps you to keep up with all of your meetings in one place. By setting up the right recipes, you will be notified when a participant joins or is waiting for you, the host, in any of your meetings:
Other recipes allow you to collect meeting details such as the number of participants and the actual duration of your meeting on your board. You can use these details for analysis or just for record-keeping.
