How to Plan Your Pins

  1. Click on the PIN PLANNER on your PLANOLY dashboard.
  2. Drag and drop content from your desktop to your PIN PLANNER dashboard or upload content by clicking on the plus (+) icon on the left planning bar.
  3. When content is uploaded, you can click on any Pin to schedule. Or 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. 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’ (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.
