You may want to organize your Pinterest based business on Notion, or just use Pinterest boards and pins to make your Notion pages aesthetic. Irrespective of your goals, you need to be able to embed your Pinterest assets on Notion to use both platforms together.
Also, you should be able to share your Pinterest Notion pages or even make them public to allow access to only a selected audience. Notion not only lets you embed Pinterest boards and pins but also allows you to treat them as regular Notion blocks. This means, you have the same flexibility as with other elements of Notion.
Here are 4 steps to embedding Pinterest boards in Notion:
1. Initiate an Embed block
Create a new Notion page (or open an existing one) where you want to add the Pinterest board and type “/embed”. This will pull up the embed block view, click on it to create an empty block on your page.
Here’s what the empty embed block looks like:
2. Add link to your Pinterest board
Log into Pinterest and go to the board that you want to embed in Notion. The board can be from any account, you can embed it as long as it is public.
Here’s the Pinterest board that we will embed in Notion:
Copy the URL of the board and jump back to Notion. Your empty embed block is still waiting for the URL. Paste the URL and click on the “Embed link” button.
That’s it! Your Pinterest board will start to show in Notion.
3. Resize the Pinterest preview
You can resize the Pinterest board by adjusting the borders.
Just click on any edge of the board preview and pull it in or out to resize it.
4. Share your Notion page
Your Pinterest boards need not be accessible to all your team members. Some are meant for specific teams, or maybe just for you. This means, you should have an option to keep it private. Notion does offer that feature.
To share your Pinterest boards with a specific audience you can click on the “...” icon at the top-right corner of your screen and add people you want to share access with.
