You can use the monday.set software development kit (SDK) method to set up data inside your application. This can only be used in client-side apps.


  • type: The type of data that can be set (available values below)
  • params: Optional parameters for the action

The available types that can be set are:

'settings'The application settings as configured by the user that installed the app
'location'The URL location within an app


A Promise that will be resolved to the set method response.


Set application settings data

You can update the app's settings by sending an object containing the ID of each settings field and its values. Using this method, you can preconfigure default values for when users first open the app, helping them find value faster.

monday.set("settings", {"text":"the new updated value", "numbers": 10}).then(res => ...);

In the Developer Center, you can configure each field's ID when setting up your board view or widget. There, you can also find the structure of each setting type (e.g., number, color).

Application settings object set for a board view

  "text": "textual value",
  "color": "#037f4c", 
  "date": "2022-08-25"
  "checkbox1": false
  "textarea": "line1\nline2\n.....\nline n"

Set the query params in an app's URL

monday.set("location", { query: { foo: 'bar' } });
// returns the following object {[foo]=bar }
