Limiting editing capabilities on Idea Pins
We recently introduced new limitations to the editing capabilities on Idea Pins. As of this month you are now limited to updating only the board selection and engagement settings after publishing.

Keeping up with Pin stats
We're introducing new updates to Pin stats to help you learn what content resonates with your audience. A new Followers and Profile Visits driven metric will show you how your Idea Pins have driven deeper engagement with your account.

These metrics will start rolling out soon, so keep an eye out for them! For more information on Pin stats, check out this article from our Help Center.
