How To Use Pin Planner for Pinterest

PIN PLANNER is a planning tool for your Pinterest content. Upload Pins, plan, and schedule in advance from the PLANOLY web dashboard.

How Does It Work?

The PIN PLANNER has three tabs to view – library, scheduled, and published. Your Pins will show up in chronological order in your media library, so all of your newest scheduled Pins will show up in the left-hand corner from left to right and top to bottom. An important thing to note is that you can only access your analytics if you have a Pinterest Business Profile – click here to learn more.

How to Plan Your Pins

  1. Click on the PIN PLANNER on your PLANOLY dashboard.
  2. You can either drag and drop content from your desktop to your PIN PLANNER dashboard or upload content, from Google Drive or DropBox, by clicking on the plus (+) icon on the left planning bar.
  3. When your content is uploaded, you can click on any Pin to schedule. You can also drag a Pin directly onto your scheduling calendar to the desired date, and the schedule view will pop up.
  4. In the Schedule View, add in your Pin Title, Pin Description, and a Pin URL to drive traffic back to your site.
  5. Then, select a board for your Pin OR create a new board. When creating a new board, there’s also an option to make it a ‘secret board’ (simply turn on the ‘secret’ toggle!).
  6. Choose your desired date and time and click ‘SAVE

    *PIN PLANNER Tip: Once a Pin is scheduled, it’ll move over to your SCHEDULED tab, and a light blue (S) icon will appear on the top left corner of the Pin. If a Pin has been published, it’ll move over to the PUBLISHED tab and have a grey detailed tab under it with your board information, day, and time it was published as well as these three metrics: Impressions, Saves, and Clicks for each particular Pin.
