Activity logs

monday.com activity logs are records of all activities performed on a board. Use them to see which actions were performed on your boards.

Activity logs queries

The activity_logs field is available to query through boards. The field must be nested within another query, so you cannot use it at the root of your query. Querying activity logs returns a collection of activity logs in a specific board.

You can retrieve up to 10,000 records at a time. If you want to retrieve more than that, you can use arguments in your queries to help filter the results.

query {
  boards (ids: 123456789) {
    activity_logs (from: "2021-07-23T00:00:00Z", to: "2021-07-26T00:00:00Z") {
      id
      event
      data
    }
  }
}
let query = 'query { boards (ids: 123456789) { activity_logs (from: \"2021-07-23T00:00:00Z\", to: \"2021-07-26T00:00:00Z\") { id event data }}}';


fetch ("https://api.monday.com/v2", {
  method: 'post',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
   },
   body: JSON.stringify({
     'query' : query
   })
  })
   .then(res => res.json())
   .then(res => console.log(JSON.stringify(res, null, 2)));

Understanding the created_at field

The timestamps returned by this field are formatted as UNIX time with 17 digits.

To convert the timestamp to UNIX time in milliseconds, divide the 17-digit value by 10,000 and round to the nearest integer. For UNIX time in seconds, divide the value by 10,000,000.

myDate = new Date(15880281464518396 / 10000)
import pandas as pd  
pd.to_datetime(16155031105053254 / 10000000, unit='s')
<?php
$timestamp=16155031105053254/10000000;
echo gmdate("Y-m-d\TH:i:s\Z", $timestamp);
?>
