Activity tab

Your group boards will live on your profile, and you can share ideas there by saving and creating Pins like you would on any other board. Every group board has an Activity tab, where you can see what people are saving to the board and leave comments for just your group board collaborators to see.

Sort your group board

You can sort your group board to see the ideas that are most important to you. You can see the most-liked Pins first.

This feature is currently only available on desktop.

Group board settings

As the owner of a group board, you manage the board's settings. This means you can make the board public or secret, remove Pins and people from the board, and allow more people to join.
