Which Pinterest Boards Can I Post To? 

Public Boards

With SmarterQueue, you can create and schedule posts to any of your own public boards on Pinterest 💪

Secret Boards

You will not be able to post to Secret Pinterest boards at this time. SmarterQueue does not have access - a secret is a secret! 🤫

If you'd like to update the settings on a Secret Pinterest Board so that it is public and detectable by SmarterQueue, you can do so on Pinterest by following these steps:

  • Navigate to the Pinterest site and log in
  • Click your profile avatar, then select your profile name

  • Hover over the Board for which you want to make edits, then click the pencil icon in the bottom-right

  • In the pop-up that appears, toggle the switch next to "Secret" to turn it off
  • Click 'Save'/'Done'

After making that change, you can then refresh boards inside of SmarterQueue and your board will appear.

Shared Boards

If you have been added as a collaborator to a shared board that has not been set as Secret, you will be able to post as normal using SmarterQueue 🙌
