How can I allow other users to edit and collaborate on my design?

With Canva, you can share an editable version of your designs so others can collaborate with you.

Here’s how:

Article summary

  1. Click the Share button in the top right-hand corner of the page.
  2. Click the box next to Share/email as an editable design.
  3. Type in the email of the user you would like to share your design with, in the email box and click Send.

01. Click "Share" 

Once your design is ready, click Share in the top right-hand corner of your page. From the share menu, enter the email addresses of your collaborators into the email box, then check the Share/email as an editable design box and hit send.

With the box checked, whoever you share the link with, will be able to view and edit your design.

You may also copy the link at the bottom of the share box, and send it directly.

Keep in mind that if you share your design via Facebook or Twitter, the version of the design is not editable.  

Canva tip: Whoever clicks on the link you create can edit your design, and you will be unable to “undo” the changes. If you want to keep a backup of your original design, you can duplicate your design before you share it.
