Collaborating On Boards

    Group projects, big projects, a second set of eyes, or just for fun - whatever your reasons for using collaborative boards, we hope it’s a helpful tool for pinners.

    For example, Team Pinterest has a board for posters and things we’d like to have for the office. We can all pin our finds, whether they’re serious or not…

    Here’s how to do it:

    Go to the board you want to edit or create a new board by clicking Add > Add a Board up at the top toolbar on Pinterest.

    On the board’s settings menu, select “Me + Contributors.”

    You must follow at least one board belonging to a user in order to add him/her as a contributor.

    Start typing his/her username into the text field. Potential matches to this username will begin to load; when you see the person you want, click their name. Click Add. When you are finished adding people, click Save Board Settings.

    You can also invite someone outside of Pinterest to get started and pin with you.

    Users who you add as contributors will receive an email notification. They can opt out or choose to remove themselves at any time in the future. You can also remove them yourself by going back to board settings and clicking the X next to their name. Whenever you make changes, just be sure to click Save Board Settings at the bottom.

    Hope this tip will help some of you on your way to some great collaborative projects or inspiration-sharing!
