The text column contains any text data you want to be stored in a column on your board(s). It is similar to the long text column.

Reading the text column

You can return the data in a text 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.

Here is an example payload showing both fields:

{
  "text": "Insert text here.",
  "value": "\"Insert text here.\""
}

Updating the text column

You can update a text column with both a simple string and a JSON string.

Simple strings

To update the text column, send a simple String value.

For example: "Sample text"

JSON

To update the text column with a JSON value, send the value as a string.

For example: "\"Sample text\""

Code example

mutation {
  change_multiple_column_values(item_id:11111, board_id:22222, column_values: "{\"text5\" : \"Sample text\"}") {
    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: "{\"text5\" : \"Sample text\"}"
    })
  })
})
curl "https://api.monday.com/v2" \
-X POST \
-H "Content-Type:application/json" \
-H "Authorization:MY_API_KEY" \
-d '{"query":"mutation{change_multiple_column_values(item_id:162169283, board_id:162169280, column_values:\"{\\\"text5\\\" : \\\"Sample text\\\"}\"){name}}"}'
