World clock

The world clock column will hold the current time of any place in the world. This can be useful for seeing times across different time zones. Our API supports this column, so you can read and update the world clock column via the API.

Reading the world clock column

You can return the data in a world clock column in two different formats. The text field will return the data as a simple string, and the value field will return the data as a JSON string.

{
  "text": "US/Pacific",
  "value": "{\"timezone\":\"US/Pacific\",\"changed_at\":\"2022-07-21T12:00:00.000Z\"}"
}

Updating the world clock column

JSON

You can update a world clock column with a JSON string. Simple string updates are not supported.

To update a world clock column, send the timezone of the user as a string in continent/city form. You can find the list of available time zones here.

For example: "{\"timezone\":\"Europe/London\"}"

mutation {
  change_multiple_column_values(item_id:11111, board_id:22222, column_values: "{\"world_clock\" : {\"timezone\" : \"Europe/London\"}}") {
    id
  }
}
fetch ("https://api.monday.com/v2", {
  method: 'post',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY'
  },
  body: JSON.stringify({
    query : "mutation ($myBoardId:Int!, $myItemId:Int!, $myColumnValues:JSON!) { change_multiple_column_values(item_id:$myItemId, board_id:$myBoardId, column_values: $myColumnValues) { id }}",
    variables : JSON.stringify({
      myBoardId: YOUR_BOARD_ID,
      myItemId: YOUR_ITEM_ID,
      myColumnValues: "{\"world_clock\" : {\"timezone\" : \"Europe/London\"}}"
    })
  })
})

You can find the Postman request to change the world clock column here.

Clearing the world clock column

You can clear the world clock column using a change_multiple_column_values mutation.

mutation {
  change_multiple_column_values(item_id:2973227073, board_id:2973227049, column_values: "{\"world_clock\" : {\"timezone\" : \"\"}}") {
    id
  }
}
