How to Order Your Boards on Pinterest

Posted December 6, 2019 by Sheraz Ali in PINTEREST

Pinterest’s developers keep introducing interesting and useful features almost every other month to the app. One of those features happens to be the one where Pinterest users can arrange the boards in their profile according to their own style, either in an alphabetic, chronological or custom order. A board on Pinterest is defined as a single category containing pins belonging to that category. The concept is the same as pinning something to a board in real-life. This tutorial will walk you through, step-by-step, on how to arrange your boards on Pinterest so everything is organised according to your style and preferences.

There are two methods to go about this. Let’s look at both of them.

Arranging your Pinterest Boards – Method 1

1. Open the Pinterest app.

2. Tap on your profile image to access your profile.

Suppose, for instance, you choose to order your boards according to the Last Saved to format.

3. The Last Saved to option will appear active in the Auto-sort boards section then.

Things to Remember

Whichever format you arrange your boards in, option corresponding to that format will be highlighted under the Sort by AND under the Auto-sort boards sections on Pinterest. They both represent the same set of options.

You can order your boards in a custom order, alphabetically or chronologically. The last one goes by the phrase “last saved to” on Pinterest.

Ordering your boards straight from the board settings is the fastest, most convenient method. However, if you are looking for ordering your boards in a custom order, it’s better to do so by using method 1 as described above.
