About This Class

This class is a follow up to my other Pinterest class called 'Pinterest: How To Auto Pin For Free'

A limitation of that method is you aren't able to keep track of what you are pinning or set limits on how many times you pin a day.

This class shows you a method that allows you to schedule your pins to your boards, at times you specify during the day.

This class is for those who already have a Pinterest account, either personal or business and want to have control over what is pinned and when images are pinned.

All this is possible without having to pay a subscription fee for a scheduling service.

There is no reason to stop learning and the best way to learn is to share the knowledge you have.

Through sharing my knowledge I hope to add to mine.

Having been fortunate to have worked in buying departments as a Merchandise Planner on three different continents, I have been able to gather a wide range of experience and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge, as a Merchandise Planner, which I am now imparting on others.

What is a Merchandise Planner?

A Merchandise Planner is someone who through planning sales and inventory increases profitability by maximising sales and minimising losses within a retail buying department.

The first step involves filling in the spreadsheet we created earlier, with all the information needed to create a pin. Get back to the sheet, created and fulfilling in each column, renamed the Tad Yearly. Filling in, I usually renamed the Time to be the same name as the board.

The scenario has been set up correctly by clicking on run once. Now go to calendar to check the information is visible. Also, check the events has been created for the right date, the right time and all the information is correct. Now, whenever you populate back tabbing Google sheets and Event will be created at 11 PM in Google Calendar, which will have the image and source your L and the PIN description, which is used to create a pin 6. Create First Applet: calendar. Two sheets. The next step is one I have tried to eliminate from the process. I used to schedule my pins to Pinterest without having to pay a subscription. Unfortunately, I am yet to come up with a way that avoids using this step. Say, here it is. Now all the events have been created in Google calendar. We're gained. Teoh automate the movement off information from Google Calendar back to Google sheets at the Times We want the pins to be created. But act workings who used to do this is if this, then that And this is one off to APP lets we're going to create for this pin dress scheduling method to work. Log into if this, then that select new apple it click on the word this, which has a plus next to it in blue type in and selects Google Calendar. Select event from search starts as the trigger under in which calendar select the calendar . The apparatus to use, which in this case is the retail calendar. Under time before event starts, select how many minutes before the event is due to start. You want the applicant to run. I personally have selected 45 minutes. The options are 0 15 30 or 45 minutes. Leave everything else as is click on Create trigger Click Home Bat with the plus next to it , which is in blue in the search services box. Type in and select Google sheets. Click on add row to spread sheet. Type in a spreadsheet name. We're going to be creating a spreadsheet with this name later on and formatted from. Delete all information in the box except for title description and where. Note that the three lines in between title and description and description and where is what puts the information into separate columns in the Google Sheet in Dr Path folder. Delete the information in the box and replace with a folder name we created earlier in Google Drive, which waas in this in this example to as in the number to Pinterest, click on Create Action. This is where you can name Apple it you have just created. If you want to, you can either delete all the information in the box and type in the name for the apple it or add the app. Listening to the end of the information in the box or just leave it as is kick finish. And it would say you made a new apple it click on check now at the bottom of the apple it and if it's been set up correctly, it would say appliqued checked. That's it. You have now created an apple it so events that you've created in Google Calendar will populate your Google sheet when you want the pin to be created on your Pinterest board. 7. Create Second Applet: sheets to Pinterest. This is the second app let and final step we need to do to have pins created on a Pinterest board before creating the APP. Let we need to create a Google Sheikhs document in Google sheets, open a new worksheet and give it the same name as the one used in the apple it created in the previous lesson, which was called Calendar two sheets. Make sure the file is saved in the dry folder that was also created earlier. The dry folder name was to Pinterest. To do this, click on the folder image next to the file name, Select the folder and click on maize. If the 1st 3 columns the following headings call him a image, you are l. This maps two title in the first Apple it created column B description this maps to description In the first Apple, it's created column C so c r o this maps to where in the first apple it created. Now look into your if this, then that account selection. The apple it click home the word this with a plus in front of it in play. Type in and select Google sheets. Select new euro added to spread sheets as a trigger paste in the spreadsheets girl, which you can get from Google Drive or the address bar on your browser. Click on Create Trick in Click Home the word bats with a plus in front of it in blue in the search services box. Type in and select Pinterest. Click on add pin to board typing board name exactly as it is in your account.

Ural Box. Delete information in box, Click on Add Ingredients and Select Column C, which has the location Earl Click on Create Action. This is where you name the applet you have just created when she couldn't do by. I've been deleting information and type in a new name, adding to the end off whatever information is carinae and the box click on finish and it would say you made a new apple it click on check now at the bottom off the tablet, and if it's been set up correctly, it would say Apple, it's checked now. The specified board would automatically have pins added at the time you have specified in your Google calendar, repeat the steps above for other boards. 8. Monitoring: monitoring. Perhaps now we have automated scheduling pins to our Pinterest boards. It is best to monitor the entire process for the first week. All say this way. You can be sure you have set everything up correctly. If you're not happy with any of the steps, you can always switch the apple it or scenario off or delete it and create a new one to help with monitoring the process. You can download the Integra Matt Dropbox and take this, then backed APS from the Google Play Store for Android or the APP store for Apple devices. 9. Wrap Up: wrap up. I hope you found this class helpful, especially as it is a very cost effective way off being able to schedule pins to Pinterest boards without pain, a monthly subscription fee in following this process. The amount of steps involved may seem like a lot initially, however, once all steps have been set up and you have monitored the process to ensure everything is working correctly. Replicating the process takes very little time to recap other than creating the to Google sheets documents. There are three main steps to this process, first of which is creating and Integra ments denarii that creates an event in Google calendar from Google sheets. Second step is crazy, and if this then that APP let but adds new rose to Google sheets at the start off a Google calendar event. And the third step is creating. And if they said met at let's that creates a pin from Google sheets to a specified Pinterest board. Once this process is set up, scaling it by adding more boards is easy to do 10.
