As adopting a visual-first approach(opens in a new tab or window) becomes table stakes for workplaces across the globe, we’re always striving to empower our growing community of more than 175 million people with game-changing tools to help them make an impact with visual content. From AI-powered time-saving features to new interactive ways to engage your audience, here are five of the latest features new to Canva.

1. Sort Whiteboard stickies with a single click

We’ve long thought of whiteboards(opens in a new tab or window) as the ultimate hack for visually mapping out ideas(opens in a new tab or window) – from team brainstorming to campaign mood boards – and thanks to the power of AI, you can say goodbye to manually organising your sticky notes. With the help of Sort(opens in a new tab or window), you can now easily group sticky notes based on colours, names, and topics, making for easy summarising and workflow mapping.

2. Take your designs global with template translation

Our ever-popular AI-powered Translate(opens in a new tab or window) tool just got even better. Now, you can instantly translate an entire template into one of over 100 languages. Simply choose a template, and select ‘Translate’ from the drop-down menu to convert your design.

Whether you’re creating onboarding documents for a growing international team or developing global lesson plans, convert any design easily with just a few clicks.

3. An even better Magic Write

AI-powered text generators have taken the world by storm in recent years – in fact, our very own Magic Write(opens in a new tab or window) has been used more than 180 million times since its launch. We've enhanced the writing assistant over time, with the most recent update vastly improving the speed of the writing outputs without losing the initial prompt, with new custom controls dropping soon.

Whether you’re looking to format an expertly created design brief, learn a new skill, or brainstorm creative activities to elevate learning in the classroom, get ready to unlock your writer’s block and dream up big ideas.

4. Take interactive visualisations to the next level

Data storytelling(opens in a new tab or window) is critical for communicating complex ideas and results in digestible ways, and these new interactive visualisations will take your presentations to new heights.

Our newest animation, Bar Chart Race(opens in a new tab or window), effortlessly converts data into beautiful, animated visualisations that vividly illustrate data changes, perfect for showing how audience demographics have grown or evolved over time.

We’ve also added interactive chart legends to easily locate and dive into specific areas or categories, such as sales revenue or marketing performance, by simply hovering over your selected labels. Or, add another dimension with bubble plots – a colourful and illustrative way to tell your story.

5. Publish a Canva Doc as a website

The world’s your oyster when it comes to Canva Docs(opens in a new tab or window). We’ve even published a wrap-up of 10 things you didn’t know you could do in Canva Docs(opens in a new tab or window). Now, you’ve got even more options to bring your Docs to life creatively, with the ability to publish documents directly as a website.

Whether you need to quickly share information on the go or seek stakeholder feedback without having to log in, change how you communicate by publishing a Canva Doc as a website. You can even choose a free Canva domain or purchase a custom domain for something a little more memorable.
