Users can now create multiple personalized versions of the same design using Bulk Create! This tool is excellent for creating certificates, name tags/plates, or labels with different student or teacher names. Follow the written directions below or watch this screencast.
After creating a design in Canva, select Apps. Scroll down to Bulk Create.
A user can enter data manually or upload a CSV file. Uploading a CSV, especially if using data from Pinnacle or PowerSchool, is recommended. Review how to save a spreadsheet as a CSV file.
After uploading the CSV, Canva will identify the column headers as data fields. These fields are available to tag in the design.
To connect an element in the design to a data field, right-click on the element (which contains a placeholder, such as name) and select Connect Data, then choose the field. In this example, we want the certificate to show the student's name.
After connecting the data, a “tag” will appear.
Repeat this step to connect all the needed data fields. When finished, select Continue.
The next page will verify the connected data. If correct, select Generate (number) pages.
A new tab will open with the generated designs.
If printing is desired, select Share, then Download as a PDF. Upload the PDF to the Copy Center!
