Pinterest: Here’s How to Archive and Unarchive a Board on Mobile

Users can hide content they no longer need

Pinterest recently introduced the ability for users to archive boards they’re no longer using. For instance, if a user has created a wedding planning board, they may wish to archive the board after their wedding.

When a user archives a board, Pinterest will update their content recommendations and notifications accordingly.

Our guide will show you how to archive and unarchive a board from within the Pinterest mobile application.
