The button column allows you to perform an action (e.g., moving an item to a new group) with just the click of a button. Our API partially supports this column, so you can read the button column via the API but cannot update it.

Reading the button column

You can return the data in a button column in two different formats. The text field will return the data as a simple string that displays the button's label. The value field will return the data as a JSON string that shows metadata about the button.

{
  "value": "{\"clicks\":1,\"changed_at\":\"2022-08-05T12:00:00.000Z\"}",
  "text": "Click Here"
}
