Using promoted links to create a pseudo Pinterest board

Office 365 / SharePoint Blog

Pinterest is a great resource for housing your online reference system, for recipes as well as for work related items. I have a number of Office365 or SharePoint boards that I reference regularly, so it was no surprise to me that the Strengths team was collaborating on using Pinterest to gather resources specific to the 34 Clifton StrengthFinders themes, both for personal reference and also for Strength Consultants to use in coaching sessions.

Once you’ve created that great resource on Pinterest, the inevitable question then becomes: how do we get these boards into SharePoint? In testing the functionality for embedding the actual Pinterest board into SharePoint and discovering that it does not work in all browsers, I started thinking about other approaches, and Promoted Links seemed an obvious choice, and this graphic below shows what that could look like. It accomplishes the same task and I like that everything looks uniform.
