The numbers column holds number values (either floats or ints). You can filter, read, update, and clear the numbers column via the API.

Filtering the numbers column

Using the items_page object, you can easily filter a board's items by specific columns or column values. The table below contains the number column's supported operators and compare values.

OperatorsCompare values
any_of
  • The numeric value to filter by
  • "$$$blank$$$" (blank values)
  • not_any_of
  • The numeric value to filter by
  • "$$$blank$$$" (blank values)
  • is_emptynull
    is_not_emptynull
    greater_thanThe numeric value to filter by
    greater_than_or_equalsThe numeric value to filter by
    lower_thanThe numeric value to filter by
    lower_than_or_equalsThe numeric value to filter by

    Examples

    The following example returns all items on the specified board with a number column value greater than 5.

    query {
      boards (ids: 1234567890) {
        items_page (query_params: {rules: [{column_id: "numbers", compare_value: [5], operator:greater_than}]}) {
          items {
            id
            name
          }
        }
      }
    }
    

    Reading the numbers column

    You can query the numbers column using the column_values object that enables you to return column-specific subfields by sending a fragment in your query. Values for the numbers column are of the NumbersValue type.

    query {
      items (ids:[1234567890, 9876543210]) {
        column_values {
          ... on NumbersValue {
            number
            id
            symbol
            direction
          }
        }
      }
    }
    

    Fields

    FieldDescriptionEnum values
    columnColumn!The column the value belongs to.
    direction NumberValueUnitDirectionIndicates whether the symbol is placed to the right or left of the number. left
    right
    id ID!The column's unique identifier.
    number FloatThe column's number value.
    symbol StringThe symbol of the unit.
    text StringThe column's value as text. This field will return "" if the column has an empty value.
    type ColumnType!The column's type.
    value JSONThe column's JSON-formatted raw value.

    Updating the numbers column

    You can update a numbers column using the change_simple_column_value mutation and sending a simple string in the value argument. You can also use the change_multiple_column_values mutation and pass a JSON string in the column_values argument.

    Simple strings

    To update the numbers column, send a string containing a float or int.

    mutation {
      change_simple_column_value (item_id:9876543210, board_id:1234567890, column_id:"numbers", value: "3") {
        id
      }
    }
    
    fetch ("https://api.monday.com/v2", {
      method: 'post',
      headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'application/json',
        'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
      },
      body: JSON.stringify({
        query : "mutation ($myBoardId:Int!, $myItemId:Int!, $myColumnValue: String!, $columnId: String!) { change_simple_column_value (item_id:$myItemId, board_id:$myBoardId, column_id: $columnId, value: $myColumnValue) { id } }",
        variables : JSON.stringify({
          myBoardId: 1234567890,
          myItemId: 9876543210,
          columnId: "numbers",
          myColumnValue: "3"
          })
        })
      })
    

    JSON

    To update the numbers column using JSON, send a string containing a float or int.

    mutation {
      change_multiple_column_values(item_id:9876543210, board_id:1234567890, column_values: "{\"numbers\" : \"3\"}") {
        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: 1234567890,
          myItemId: 9876543210,
          myColumnValues: "{\"numbers\" : \"3\"}"
        })
      })
    })
    

    Clearing the numbers column

    You can also clear a numbers column using the change_multiple_column_values mutation and passing null or an empty string in the column_values argument.

    mutation {
      change_multiple_column_values(item_id:9876543210, board_id:1234567890, column_values: "{\"numbers\" : null}") {
        id
      }
    }
    
    fetch ("https://api.monday.com/v2", {
      method: 'post',
      headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'application/json',
        'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
      },
      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: 1234567890,
          myItemId: 9876543210,
          myColumnValues: "{\"numbers\" : null}"
        })
      })
    })
