Benefits of Using Our Canva Integration 

Our Canva integration allows you to streamline your social media creation, publishing, and management in one easy-to-use dashboard that can be accessible to all team members and clients.

Here are the top benefits of using Canva in Vista Social:

1. Eliminate Posting Errors

Picture this scenario: you receive a last-minute copy change in a graphic scheduled to go out tomorrow morning. You make the change, but the wrong image gets published since your team doesn’t have a centralized media library. 

Last-minute changes and social media content go together like peanut butter and bread. It’s easy to make small mistakes when your social media creation and publishing workflows aren’t streamlined. 

Our Canva integration lets you easily create stunning visuals and store them in Vista Social’s built-in media libraries to keep your images and videos organized. 

Assign Safeguards in Vista Social

Whether in the same city or spread out across the globe, Vista Social helps centralize your team into one intuitive dashboard. Generate workflows to guide the submission, review, and approval of content created in Canva to maintain oversight, safeguard brand standards and simplify collaboration.

2. Build Consistency with Your Visuals

Forget designing from scratch and manually publishing posts. With Vista Social’s Canva integration, you can create and manage more than 100 separate brands, all in one place. 

Need to get a post out in an hour? No problem. You can find thousands of premium on-brand templates for your business and easily schedule them directly in Vista Social.

If you need to make changes, you can share designs with external parties, so they’re able to add comments, tasks, or approve work in real-time to ensure brand consistency across your collateral.

Consistent branding is key in providing trust to your audience and keeping your business top of mind. 

3. Centralize Your Workflow 

It is super frustrating having to search across multiple platforms for just one graphic. 

Improving productivity and organization doesn’t require multiple project management tools. With Vista Social, you can use one unified dashboard with powerful integrations, so you actually improve efficiency. 

Centralize your workflow in Vista Social

Vista Social provides you with a centralized dashboard where you can quickly locate your Canva designs and easily schedule them to your social media profiles. 

From there, you can moderate comments and mentions, track engagement, get detailed analytics, manage reviews, and monitor social conversations in real time.

4. Free Up Your Computer Storage

Canva is a great tool for creating visuals, but downloading each piece of content quickly can eat up all of your computer’s storage. 

Vista Social's Media Library for Canva Integration

With Vista Social, you can easily import your Canva designs and store them in your built-in media library. This makes it easy to locate and share files with colleagues, clients, or stakeholders.

This also can be used as a safeguard for your content. If your computer randomly crashes or you lose your smartphone, you can easily use Vista Social to access all of the content you had stored.

5. Save Time and Money

Consider your current tech stack; how many tools do you currently use? Increasing efficiency through technology doesn’t require you to adopt multiple platforms into your tech stack; it’s about adopting the right platforms. 

Investing in tools that don’t have the right integrations result in longer turnaround times, which isn’t scalable.

If your workflow isn’t centralized, your team has to remember login credentials for multiple tools and navigate different user interfaces. Switching from tab to tab or tool to tool wastes a lot of time. 

Vista Social's Integrations

Vista Social has a number of powerful integrations available, like Canva, that can eliminate bottleneck designs, and manual post publishes to deliver multichannel content at scale.
