To schedule a pin, I click on the pingraphy bookmarklet {image above} when I’m on the page I want to pin. Clicking opens up the screen with all the pinnable images. By default, they’re ALL selected, as you can see in this image below.

The ONLY downside to this seriously cool Pinterest tool is that you can’t edit or reschedule a pin. You can only delete it. But it is still new, so maybe that functionality will be added to it later.

So, go ahead, free up your time, optimize pinning and make Pinterest a productivity booster instead of a time suck!
