I: Introduction

A: How to work from home productively

The ability to work productively from home is a valued skill and one that can be learned. It takes practice and planning, but it is well worth the effort. To begin with, you must create a board that will allow you to collaborate remotely. Once you have created your board, invite your friends onto it. Next, you should consider creating a schedule so you know when you will be able to participate in the board. Finally, you should ensure that you have the proper equipment to participate in the board.

A: Creating a new board and inviting people to it

Creating a new board is essential to working from home productively. If you do not create a new board, you will be unable to effectively communicate with others and the process will be too difficult. Begin by opening a new tab and then go to . Once there, click “Create a new Board” and then enter a title and description for your board. Next, click “Create Board” and then select “See More Boards” and click “ Create” again. You will now see the board you have created. Click on the image of the board you want to make an addition to and choose “Add Pin”; this will take you to a screen where you can edit the description of your pin. Now, type a description of the pin and attach a link if you would like. Once you have completed your description, click “Add Pin” and then “View More Pins” if you want to add more pins.

Next, click “Invite People to This Board” at the bottom of the screen and complete the information required to invite people to view your board. You can also copy links from other boards to send to your friends so they can see what you have been working on from home.

Finally, once people have been added, they will be able to comment on pins and add their own pins as well.

B: Creating a schedule

Being able to create a schedule that allows you to work productively from home requires some forward thinking. Begin by looking at your existing schedule to determine if there are times when you could meet with others via Pinterest. Search for other boards that interest you and find out when their members are available to work together. When you have identified those times, make note of them in your calendar or planner. Then, look at those times and see if they align with times when other people from your board are available. When you have found a time that works for everyone, schedule a meeting time on your calendar for this date and time.

C: Proper equipment

While having the proper equipment is not the most important part of being able to work from home productively, it is still important. If you do not have the proper equipment, communicating with others will be very difficult. In order to ensure that you can participate enough in your new board, invest in a laptop computer or tablet so that people can easily contact you on Pinterest. You may also want to invest in a printer so that you can print off any images or blog posts that interest you while you are working from home.
