The mobile app is a tool that allows you to collaborate with your team right from the palm of your hand! It's perfect if you're on the go and want to stay in tune with your team members! This article will take you through the basics of the app and how to get started using monday.com wherever you are!
Download the app
The first step to using your monday.com mobile app is to download the app! Go to your iOS or Android app store, and search for "monday.com" in the search bar. It should look something like this:
Click "Get" to download the app to your mobile device!
Your next step is to either log in to your account or to create a new account if you haven't joined yet!
Build your boards
A board is where your groups of items are held. It's a virtual whiteboard where projects are stored as a way to keep track of everything from everyday tasks to month/year-long projects. The sky is the limit when it comes to how you can use your boards! They can be to do lists, contact sheets, questionnaires, project lists, detailed project management, or shift management!
To create a new board, click the blue '+' icon at the bottom right corner of your screen, like this:
Next, you can choose from any of our pre-made templates, or create your own!
Let's take a little tour of the board!
Our board's items are divided into groups. My groups represent the days of the week, but you can make them anything, including different weeks, people, locations or sites, clients, projects, or teams!
Groups are a way to categorize the items on your board so that they're easier to work with.
Within each group, we have items. My items are the tasks that my team needs to work on each day of the week, but the sky is the limit for the types of items you can build your board with.
Horizontally across our board, we have columns! We can add whichever columns we want from the Column Center depending on the nature of our board!

- The Updates Section
The first column on our board always contains the names of our items. To the right of the item's name, we can see a speech bubble that often has a number inside. This speech bubble represents the item's updates, and the number reflects the number of updates on each item! If we click on an item, we can take a closer look.
Head over to the item's "Updates" tab to see all of the item's updates and replies! This is where all the communication on our boards happens. Give a thumbs up, or reply with '@ mention's, pictures, and files!

You will receive Bell Notifications whenever something important happens in your account that involves you, such as getting assigned tasks in the people column, being mentioned in an update, or receiving replies to your updates. Reach your Bell Notifications from the left pane, like this:
You can mark your notifications as "read" or delete them on the go!
- Push Notifications
When you enable Push Notifications (from your Settings menu), you can receive all of your notifications directly on your mobile device, so you never miss an important update!
The Inbox is where you will see all updates from boards you are subscribed to, even if you are not specifically mentioned in that update or assigned to each item. You can think of this as a news feed, where you can see everything your team has posted on those specific boards.
Reach the Inbox from your left pane, like this:
You can reply, thumbs up, or click the update to see it inside the board it was posted in!
