Installation

STEP 1: Install the Crunchbase CRM Enrichment app from the monday.com apps marketplace.

 

STEP 2: Once installed, go to your previously prepared board to set up the integration. 

*​​Note: Only one Crunchbase integration recipe can be established per monday.com board.

STEP 6: For recipe configuration, set up the following parameters:

  • Choose the appropriate Text column dedicated to a company website 
    • Filling in the website field narrows down the search criteria in cases when there are companies with the same name returned in Crunchbase, so users can specify which exact company they want to integrate. If the website is not specified, the company with the highest Crunchbase rank is integrated to the board by default. 
  • Click on the “fields” option to set up the field mapping between Crunchbase fields and board columns.
  • Select the “error” Text column for error message specification in case any should arise.


STEP 7: Once you are done with the recipe configuration, click the "Add to Board" button.

 

That's it! Now, live company data will be automatically added to your monday.com board on each item create or update action in accordance to your integration recipe configuration.

Functional Overview 

Authorization

  • On the initial recipe setup user is prompted for the Crunchbase API key. As soon as the API key is submitted, the app checks its validity, and allows the user to set up a recipe.
  • One Crunchbase API key persists per monday.com account and is used for all recipes/requests configured under this account.
  • In order to change the Crunchbase account after the initial integration recipe setup, the app should be completely reinstalled. 

Integration 

  • The integration is triggered when one of the following events occurs:
    • A new item (line) is created on monday.com board
    • Items’ name is updated
    • Items’ website is set
    • Items’ website is updated
  • Name is the primary identifier used to find the appropriate company in Crunchbase. 
  • Website is an additional identifier not mandatory for filling. 
    • It helps to narrow down the search criteria in case when there are companies with the same name returned in Crunchbase, so users can specify which exact company they want to integrate. If the website is not specified, the company with the highest Crunchbase rank would be integrated to the board. 
  • Once a day, integration is automatically run to sync all existing company entries presented on the monday.com board with Crunchbase and updates the board items with new values if any are found.
  • The following table displays 50 Crunchbase fields that can be mapped and integrated to your monday.com board. Please use only specified monday.com column types for seamless integration.

Special Cases

  1. If a company is not found by the provided name or name and website, users will be notified and the corresponding board item will be updated with the appropriate error message. The same happens if there is no match between the provided name and website.

  2. If there are multiple companies with the same name returned in Crunchbase, the company with the highest rank would be integrated to the board.

  3. If Crunchbase API rate limit is reached, users will be notified appropriately. All items that remained unprocessed would be processed on the next automatic integration run (triggered once a day) or should be recreated/updated for the immediate integration run.
