Note: We recommend creating a Knak API admin user in and then using the API Key of that user to set up this integration. More information on that can be found below.

You can use the same credentials to create an integration to a different board under the same instance.

Setting up the integration

  1. Log in to your Knak account.

  2. Click on "Studio" in the top left corner, then click on the "Admin" button to navigate into the Admin settings.

3. Select the "Integrations" option on the left-hand side menu bar, and then click on "Platforms".

4. Scroll down to the Project Management section and select the tile.

5. Fill out the fields as follows:

  • Integration Name β†’ this is how your integration will be referred to within your Knak instance

  • API Key β†’ This is the API Key of your Admin user. It can be found in by clicking your avatar, then Administration > API

Mapping custom fields

It is possible to allow additional information to flow from into custom fields on the asset Info tab in Knak.

To set this up, you will need to reach out to your Knak account team and request the desired custom fields be created in Knak to match your custom fields. For example, if you want to display the custom field Deadline in Knak, you would request a field to be created in Knak called "Deadline".

Once the custom field has been created in Knak, you can map the corresponding field to it via the integration page in Knak. Simply select the relevant Board where the custom field(s) live and map them to the corresponding Knak field(s).

Note: if you're using custom field mapping, you will only be able to sync data to one board. If you don't need field mapping you can leave this blank and sync to all boards.

Other options

Add Knak Status in Monday - Toggle this on to send the Knak asset status (draft, approved, in review etc) back to

Add Link to Knak Asset in Monday - toggle this on to automatically generate a link in that can be clicked to open the Knak asset.

Add Knak Comments in Monday - Toggle this on to send comments added in Knak back to so they will display in the comments section. # Comments added in will not sync back to Knak.

Restrict to Brands - Add brand(s) here to restrict which brands can use the integration.

You are now all set to use alongside Knak! To get started, go to any Knak asset and click on the Info tab. Then, paste the link to your item on the right-hand side under Project Management.
