Monday to Eledo PDF data mapping

In order to print Monday data into PDF document, you will need to define data expressions in Eledo template. You can use data expressions to print values from Monday Board, Item and Subitems. In this guide we will explain how to build them.

Board

Only following fields can be printed from Monday's Board at the moment.

Monday column Eledo data expression Notes
id id Board's ID (number)
name name Board's Name (text)
description description Board's Description (text)

 

Item

Monday Item can contain also custom columns. They are represented with their technical name in data expression, not by its label. It may be difficult to find out column's technical name currently and therefore we have prepared a simple tool to retrieve technical names from your Board. Find it here.

Monday column Eledo data expression Notes
id item.id Item's Unique Identifier (number)
name item.name Item's Name (text)
state item.state Item's State (text)
updated_at item.updated_at Item's last update date (date)
custom_column item.custom_column Item's custom column (text)
- replace custom_column with your column's technical name

 

Subitems

Subitems are transformed as array and attached to item. To iterate through the array you will need to use Block Repetition with item.subitems data expression. Within the Block Repetiton you only need to use Subitem's column names (without any prefix).

Image support

Monday File columns can contain image attachments and they can be included in your PDF. Since attachments can be more than one, File columns are transformed as an array. To iterate through the array you will need to use Block Repetition with item.file_column data expression where file_column is column's technical name of File type. Within the Block Repetiton you only need to use File's field names (without any prefix).
