monday.labs and beta features

Browsing around the documentation and the community forum, I have seen references to beta features of monday.com being available via the monday.labs option on the main menu.

I noticed that there is not actually a monday.labs item on my account's menu. After some more forum searching, I discovered, as I suspected, that by default it is not enabled for trial accounts.

With regard to this challenge, I'm wondering if any of the beta features currently available through monday.labs would have an impact on what an app/integration could be made to achieve, and whether submissions are free to make use of beta features or should avoid them in case they do not make it (unchanged) into full production.

If we can use beta features, then I guess I am requesting access to monday.labs. And, if we can't, then I am happy to remain deprived! :-)

    Hi Colin, could you share youraccountname.monday.com so I can check on that for you and fix it?

    Hi Matthew,

    Thanks. My account is cmccdev@monday.com. If by 'fix it' you mean grant me access to monday.labs, then I certainly won't say no, as it couldn't do any harm for me to be able to have a look around.

    But, as I said, I already ascertained that it is normal for trial accounts not to have access, and furthermore I can see valid reasons why beta features might be off limits for the purposes of this contest.

    So I am at least as keen to get the answers to the questions I posed as I am to gain access...

    Hey Colin, please try logging out and back in - let me know if you've got access now.

    As far as why it's happening, we're building the infrastructure for the developer-specific account status. This should be done in a week or so and will include all the bells and whistles that a developer will need. We're editing accounts to dev status in our system manually through a few specific steps, which is why this likely got missed.

    It will show in the system which features are in testing vs which are live, so at the very least it will be an inclination of what's coming up around the corner!

    I just took a look, without logging out, and monday.labs has appeared.

    More material to get lost in! Thanks very much. :-)

    P.S. Just in case this helps explain anything at your end, you should be aware that my account was created for the previous contest, and just had its expiry date put back for this one.

    I also don't have access to monday.labs, though I got the developer account. Can you also help me with this?
