Pinterest is finally making it easier to move multiple pins to new or different boards.
The move by the social network comes after many requests from users to make the process less cumbersome.
“Lots of Pinners have told us they’d like a way to move groups of Pins to new or different boards,” lead product designer Albert Pereta Farre wrote in a blog post. “Say you have a recipe board that’s gotten a little unwieldy, and you want to give your dessert Pins a board of their own. Now you can move them all at once.”
The process is a simple one. A user would navigate to their board of choice and click on ‘move pins.’ He or she can then select up to 50 pins to move. Then, all he or she has to do, is choose the board for the pins to be moved to.
Users will also have the option of copying pins so they can “live on two different boards” or delete pins if they are no longer of use.
The tool is rolling out to Pinterest users throughout the week.
