What you need to know
- You can now embed Pinterest pins inside OneNote and Word.
- The embedded pins on OneNote are interactive in a similar way to when you embed links from many other websites.
- Only Word online supports pinning from Pinterest at this time.
Pinterest has a vast library of content from millions of people around the world. Now, you can pin content from Pinterest directly into Microsoft's OneNote and Word. To embed content into OneNote or Word, you just need to paste a URL onto a page.
Microsoft announced the feature in a Tech Community post (opens in new tab). The post also explains that the feature was highly requested by educators:
Because Pinterest has such a vast range of content, educators should be able to find all sorts of content for students, regardless of what subject they teach. With support for embedding pins into OneNote, it's also easier to incorporate content into lesson plans and shared classroom notebooks.
At the moment, only the online version of Word supports embedding pins from Pinterest. The Windows 10, online, Mac, iPad, Android, and 2016 versions of OneNote support embedding pins.
This app lets you organize your content across digital notebooks that you can share and sync across devices.
Productivity across work and life
The new Microsoft 365 subscription for individuals and families brings with it new AI-powered features and benefits inside Microsoft Office, including Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Excel, as and also enhances Microsoft Edge, Teams, and Family Safety across Windows 10, Xbox, Android, and iOS.
