    Thank you Jeff for this helpful article…
    I signed up, and unable to “Drag pingraphy bookmarklet to [my] bookmarklet toolbar”
    There is a “Pin It” on my toolbar, How do I get the pingraphy to move, and where is the “bookmarklet toolbar?”
    Please advise, thank you…

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Maybe you are dragging it to the wrong spot. I would recommend attempting it again.

  • http://twitter.com/FamilyFreshMeal Family Fresh Meals

    I noticed that you cannot select any group boards you are a part of. Any way around that?

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      I am not aware of this being a feature that is currently available. Maybe Pinagraphy will provide that feature in the future?

      • http://twitter.com/FamilyFreshMeal Family Fresh Meals

        Thanks Jeff. This is service is AMAZING, and thank you so much for sharing it with all of us. LOVE it! :)

        • http://www.epreneur.tv/ Tehmina

          I agree with Jeff, Family Fresh Meals, and think that Pingraphy will probably add that feature at a later stage. But it’s a great idea and I will mention that to the developers. Thanks Tehmina

    • http://twitter.com/PinGraphy PinGraphy

      This feature is available now. We made a release which includes group boards, delete scheduled pins, real-time stats.

    Great article, Jeff. I have used Pingraphy and I like it for its scheduling capabilities. It definitely makes it easier to use Pinterest for business.

    • http://www.epreneur.tv/ Tehmina

      Hi Anita, I had a similar issue when I first tried to sign up. Pingraphy is very new and still a bit buggy. Try signing up with your Pinterest email address rather than the username. If that fails, then I would just email the friendly folks at Pingraphy on hello@pingraphy.com. Hope that helps! Tehmina

  • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

    Can you take a screen shot of your browser and mail it to me at jeff@jeffbullas.com ? So I can see where the possible issue might be.

    • http://www.epreneur.tv/ Tehmina

      Hi Dr Rae, you need to place the Pingraphy bookmarklet in the browser tool bar area just as you did with the Pin It bookmarklet. They shouldn’t conflict with each other as mine site side by side. It works most easily on Google Chrome – is that what your using?

      • http://twitter.com/PinGraphy PinGraphy

        Thanks @jeff and @tehmina for helping Dr. Rae. We should and will be adding a video showing how to add the bookmarklet. We did not put so much thought into it assuming users have already used Pin It button and might be aware of this proces.

    Looks very interesting and being able to target particular timezones, depending on your target audience, is a benefit but either the list has been corrupted or they have just omitted to include specific EU or UK timezones. Easy to get round but not ideal!

    • http://www.epreneur.tv/ Tehmina

      Well spotted Rob! There are indeed no GMT or EU time zones, which is even more bizarre considering all the other timeszones relate to GMT. I have let the developers know and hope they fix this glitch soon :-) Tehmina

    Is there anyway of scheduling pins which are uploaded from your destop etc, or only from images from websites etc ?

    • http://www.epreneur.tv/ Tehmina

      I’m afraid you can only pin from websites at the moment Louise. The developers have promised to introduce that feature soon but until then you could try uploading it to your website/blog or a photo sharing site and then pin it using the bookmarklet. Hope that helps!

    Very nice tool. One thing that I would have preferred: When you use the Pingraphy browser bookmarklet on a page with lots of images, it automatically selects all the images. So, if I wanted to pin just one image out of a hundred, deselecting the 99 is a lot of work for me.

    • http://www.epreneur.tv/ Tehmina

      Thank you for pointing this out Rabab, I will mention this to the developers and see if they can add it to the next update :-)

    I’ve been using PinGraphy to schedule pins for our Cairn Rescue board and really love it. However I run into problems with trying to schedule several repins from a Pinterest board. It works except the pin’s link becomes the board it came from rather than the original source. Is there a way to schedule multiple repins or do I have to do them one by one?

    • http://twitter.com/PinGraphy PinGraphy

      We haven’t designed the bookmarklet to handle repins from pinterest. It shows up as a new pin when you use it on pinterest, and hence takes the source incorrectly.
      This is something we are looking into right now. Planning to push these changes in our next release (mid dec).

    • http://www.epreneur.tv/ Tehmina

      Thanks Daniel, unfortunately the tool is far from perfect so if you experience problems, I would email Pingraphy support. Sometimes, a new update can throw the old settings out of synch so the developers need users to let them know what’s wrong.

    They’re not replying to email, Twitter or Facebook.

  • http://twitter.com/stephencharles Stephen Charles

    The scheduler works fine for me, However, it doesn’t support showing who you repinned from (making it look like you hijacked everyone else’s pins) or display the image in the original size. Dealbreakers.

    • http://www.epreneur.tv/ Tehmina

      Stephen, Pingraphy’s free version is no longer working correctly with the new look, so you may want to check out Pinterest’s own analyics tool for insights on what is being pinned from your site etc. Thanks Tehmina

    Nevertheless, I was looking for a Pinterest tool like this since long. Have been managing my business account for quite a time but given the time it required, it was never a priority. Probably, this will be a rescuer!
