Adding Pinterest as a source 📌
Once Pinterest is connected to your account, you can add Pinterest as a source to your Flows by following these steps.
Note: you cannot add a secret 🔒 Pinterest board as a source in Flowbox. Make sure your board is public before adding it.
Go to 'Visual Marketing' > 'Flows' and select the settings of the Flow to which you want to add Pinterest as a source.
On the bottom-left of this Flow's settings you can add Sources. You can now select 'Board' or 'Profile' as type:
- 'Profile' will collect your own content.
- 'Board' will collect content from one of your Boards on Pinterest. For this type you need to copy the exact board name for it to work. For example, for our board getflowbox/interior-home-styling-ugc-clients, we need to type Interior & home styling || UGC clients in the box.
From now on, all new Pinterest content will now appear in the Inbox of this Flow and can easily be approved and used for your Flows.
In order to avoid duplicates in the system, we recommend only connecting a source to one Flow, such as your Masterflow, and then distributing the posts to other Flows.
In order to add Pinterest as a source, you need to have already connected your Pinterest account to Flowbox.
