What is monday.com?

As teams and organizations seek to increase productivity and improve collaboration while working remotely or across offices, managing complex projects and keeping track of feedback and approvals can be a challenge. monday.com is one of several leading work management tools that has emerged as a solution.

monday.com is designed to be a flexible platform that allows teams to build their own workflows to fit their needs. These can be used for general project management, but can also be used to create dashboards and share data or analytics across teams, track inventory or sales leads, collect feedback via forms, and more.

You can learn more about monday.com and sign up for a free trial or demo via their homepage. Or, learn more about the integration with monday.com on our monday.com integration page.

How Diagramming Fits in monday.com

Current monday.com users will be familiar with the “boards” associated with each project in monday.com. These are views of tasks, calendars, and other resources that appear as tabs in the monday.com app. With Gliffy added to your monday.com workspace, you can add diagrams as their own board view alongside the tasks and information in your project.

This is helpful for building references and documentation across all types of work:
