Do you love Canva? It offers a wealth of digital design tools that make the worst of our work look better. But keeping up to date with Canva and other digital tools can be tough. Let’s take a look at some of the upcoming changes making an impact in schools and offices. You need to pay attention, especially if you’re a long-time Canva user.

The Canvas of Creativity

Canva is gearing up for a significant update to its sharing features. These changes are set to take effect on July 31st, 2024. Like the Google links security update, they seek to enhance online safety. Per Canva’s announcement:

“We’re introducing several improvements to how designs are shared, which include renaming and enhancing share links, as well as introducing new features for websites.”

Let’s break down these changes and what they mean for you.

A New Look for Sharing

View-only links will soon become “public view links.” The new public view links will display a badge showing the status of the design’s link. This badge will display who exactly has access to the shared document. Also, some new websites options are being rolled out.

When you login to Canva, you will be prompted to make a decision. Canva has already checked which of your share links will be affected and will ask what you want to do with them: keep them as they are or convert them into public view links. After July 31, 2024, the share links won’t work anymore unless you take action to ensure they remain accessible.

Website Wizardry

Making websites via Canva isn’t something I do often. Google Sites has me covered and remains my favorite website design tool on a budget. But Canva is upping its game with the introduction of a fresh menu and new features. You can see an example of a presentation as a website here, featuring the Amazing Lesson Design Outline (ALDO). Here’s a Canva doc as a website:

Canva updates

The new features include the following:

  • Custom domains
  • Password protection options
  • New scrolling functionality

Who knows what else they may add? What new features do you want to see for websites? Being able to drag and drop media, the same way you are able to do in Presentation docs, would be a worthwhile addition, in my opinion.

The Bigger Picture

These Canva updates reflect a broader trend towards more secure, feature-rich platforms that cater to the evolving needs of users. As you navigate these changes, tune into the TCEA TechNotes blog to stay informed and proactive. Whether you’re a seasoned Canva wizard or a unranked apprentice, these updates offer an opportunity to enhance your creative process and better protect your work.
