Some even wonder if it is possible to move the entire section to another table. Well yes. You can move sections or a pin from one section to another table, both on the web and on mobile apps.
Without further ado, find out how to move sections in Pinterest.
How to move a section from one board to another
Pinterest does not offer a direct method to move the entire section to a different table. However, a workaround exists. You must select all the pins from one section and move them to an existing section of another table. If you want to move them to a new section, you must first create a section in your table.
Therefore, before you get into the real deal, let's explain how to create sections on Pinterest boards.
How to create sections on Pinterest tables
Here are the steps:
Create a section on Pinterest Web
Step 1: Open the Pinterest site. Go to your profile page to see your forums.
2nd step: Open the table where you want to create a section. This is the table where you want to move pins from an existing section. Tap the Add (+) icon and select Add a section from the menu.
Step 3: Give the section a name and click Add. You will find the newly created section in your table.
Create a section on Pinterest mobile apps (Android and iPhone)
Note: Screenshots are taken on an Android phone, but the steps remain the same for iPhone.
Step 1: Launch the Pinterest app and go to your profile screen by tapping the profile photo icon at the bottom.
2nd step: Tap the table where you want to add a section to open it.
Step 3: Tap the Add (+) icon in the upper left corner and select Section. Give it a name and you're ready to add or move pins.
This is how you create a section in a different table to move your pins from an existing section.
What happens to the old section
If you move all the pins of a section, this one is automatically deleted.
Point: If you can still see the old section, refresh the page.
Bonus tip: move the section on the same board
Although the above method is equally valid for sections in the same table, you can also move pins from one section to another in the same table. For this you will need to use the merge feature.
Here's how to do it.
Step 1: Open the section you want to move. Now, instead of clicking / tapping the Organize button, tap the edit (pencil icon).
2nd step: Click Merge.
Step 3: Click the Choose a section drop-down menu. Pinterest will display other sections available on this chart. Select the one where you want to move it. Then press the Pins button and delete the section.
Imagine there were no tables on Pinterest. We would get lost in the unique world of pins like Alice in Wonderland.
