How do I organize my Saves?

From your Saves page, you can add an item to a list and add/remove private notes. For both, look on the right edge of the saved post and click on the stacked three dots to open a small menu. From there, you can:

  • Unsave (which removes the post from your list)
  • Move to (add the post to one of your lists)
  • Add Private Note (add a note visible only to the account owner)
  • Edit Private Note (edit the private note already on a post)
  • Delete Private Note (remove the private note on a post)

How do I make a list?

You can make a new list by clicking the "+" icon to the right of "My Lists." You can also create a new list by clicking the blue "Create new list" button (upper right corner) in the All saves and For later lists.

How do I search my saves?

You can search through your saved posts using the in:saves search operator.

Who can see my lists and notes?

Just you!
