monday.com Integration

  • Updated

Monday.com (monday) is a cloud-based platform that allows users to create their own applications and project management software.

With the monday integration, project assets can be automatically uploaded to your DAM via a trigger and tagged with relevant metadata. This prevents users from having to manually upload and tag assets from monday, saving time and increasing efficiency.

Important Information

Before setting up the integration, please ensure the following is set:

  • You will need to create a trigger for each board that you’d like to sync with Bynder.
  • While you can set up any column field to be used as a trigger, we typically recommend adding an option to a Status field, such as Send to Bynder.
  • If you delete the configured trigger, the integration will be disconnected.
  • Assets uploaded to the files column, updates, or gallery within the selected board will be synced to Bynder.
  • You’ll need to copy the monday API token for the integration. Learn more about finding the Personal API Token here.

How to Set up the monday Integration

  1. Navigate to Settings > Advanced settings > Portal settings.
  2. Click Browse Integrations in the left sidebar.
  3. Click the Premium tab.
  4. In the monday section, click Configure.
  5. Enter a Name for this configuration, then click Save.
  6. If you've already configured a Bynder connection, it will be selected. If not, select New authentication to add your Bynder credentials:
    • Your authentication name: Enter a name for the authentication.
    • Domain: Enter your unique domain by copying the URL of your Bynder portal (including https://).
  7. Click Create, then Next.
  8. Select New authentication and add the following information:
    1. Authentication name: Enter a name for the authentication
    2. API key: Enter the monday Personal API Token. Learn more about where to find the Personal API Token here.
  9. Click Create.
  10. Choose Board: Click the dropdown to select which board you want to connect to your Bynder portal.

    Note

    You’ll need to set up a new integration for each board you’d like to connect to Bynder.

  11. Choose column: Click the dropdown and select which column you’d like to use for the trigger.
    • The default Status column is commonly used, but you can choose any column.
  12. Identify your Trigger: Determine what should trigger the assets to be sent to Bynder.
    • If the column you’ve selected has a defined schema, those values will be listed. Select the option from the list. This is the recommended suggestion. We typically recommend setting the trigger to an obvious name, such as Send to Bynder.
    • If the column uses custom values, type the value to be used as a trigger in the box. We do not typically recommend using a custom value, as users might accidentally enter the information incorrectly or accidentally have a spelling mistake.
  13. Click Next.
  14. Metadata mapping: If you want to map certain data from monday to be mapped to your Bynder metaproperties you can do so by following these steps:
    1. Click Add Custom Field Mapping.
    2. Click Choose an option under Monday Column and select a field from the dropdown.
    3. Then, Choose an option under the Bynder Metaproperty that you’d like to map it to.
  15. Static Metaproperties: You can automatically add certain metaproperty values to all assets synced from Monday. For example, you can set a Source metaproperty to monday.com for all assets uploaded via the integration.
    1. Click Choose an option under Bynder Metaproperty and select a field from the dropdown.
    2. In the Value section, enter the option that the synced assets should be tagged with.
    3. Click Add a new mapping to add additional metaproperties.
  16. Click Next to review the information, then click Finish.

  1. Navigate to Settings > Advanced settings > Portal settings.
  2. Click Active Integrations in the left sidebar, then Edit in the section of the connection that you would like to update.
