    Access your Pin Planner on mobile by clicking the (three dots) at the bottom of your main screen. Tapping the people icon at the top and going to 'switch accounts.' Here, a screen will pop up that allows you to toggle between your Instagram and your Pinterest account. Tap on the Pinterest icon and then choose the Pinterest account you'd like to view. (If you have multiple ones linked.Once you've chosen your desired Pinterest account, it will then take you to your main Pin Planner View. Here you can see your Library along with all Scheduled or Unscheduled Pins. Let's take a look at all three and dive into ways that you can begin uploading and scheduling content!


    To upload content to your library, simply tap on the (+) icon in the middle of your screen, click on albums, and then select a single photo to upload or select multiple photos to bulk upload. Once you've selected content to upload, it's time to start scheduling!


    So you're ready to schedule your Pin! You can manually open that Pin by tapping on it and then enter the corresponding information. You can start by adding your desired Pin Title, Pin Description, Pin URL, Select the Board you'd like for it to place a Pin, and then select the Date & Time to schedule. Then hit Save. Your Pin is now scheduled! (You can also create a new board when choosing a board by hitting the (+) icon at the bottom of the screen. You'll also have the option of making that board a Public Board or a Secret Board.)If there are Pins that you've recently scheduled, but you want to unschedule, there's a way to do that too. To Unschedule a Scheduled Pin, you can unschedule your scheduled pin at any time by selecting the pin and selecting "unscheduled" (located directly under that specific Pin).There are many ways you can view your PIN PLANNER. We previously mentioned your Library, Scheduled, or Unscheduled tabs. Here's a quick breakdown of each!

    Things just got a whole lot better with the Calendar View on mobile. Tap on the (Calendar Icon) within your Pin Planner app to access your Pin Planner Calendar View on mobile. Here, you can view content by month or week as well as gather additional information on your currently scheduled or published Pins. Use the left (<) and right (>) arrows at the top of the screen to scroll between months to access each monthly view. Tap on a specific time within your Calendar dates to adjust or view the Pin Title, Pin Description, Link, Board, and Day + Time that your Pins are currently scheduled for. Now you can have an easy overview of Pins that are currently scheduled or that have been recently published.


    Let's dive into your analytics and how to read them. Viewing your analytics is simple and easy on the app. You'll start by tapping on the Analytics icon (three little bars) on the bottom right side of the screen. Here, under the Pins Tab, you can view your analytics by the last 7, 30, or 90 days or choose a customizable date and time frame. You can then sort by Impressions, Engagements, Closeups, Link Clicks, and Saves to see how your content is performing across the board.


    Tap on the Boards Tab to see how your Pinterest Boards are performing. You can choose the desired board from the Select A Board drop-down menu and see how Pins on your selected board are performing. (You can view up to your last 100 Pins.) Here you can view the number of Pins on the board, and the number of followers on that board along with Impressions, Closeups, Link Clicks, and Saves for that board.


    On the Overview Tab, you can view a breakdown of your Audience and Content. Below Audience, you can view tour Total Audience and your Engaged Audience.
