For Canva lovers: now you can bring Canva designs directly to your in-app messages and user guides


No design skills? No design team? No worries. We provide an easy way to create and upload designs from Canva directly to Helppier.

A few years ago, Helppier’s mission started with improving overall online user experience and reduce frustration through interactive user guides that require no coding or IT skills. Since then we have been evolving our product and strengthening our integration abilities.

Now with Helppier 4.0 and amidst a worldwide pandemic, we identified the need to shift our path slightly to improve the way product and marketing teams communicate business changes with users, through appealing popups, banners, warnings, and other types of in-app messages.
With this in mind, we recently introduced beautiful ready-to-use templates and powerful customization tools so anyone, including you, can quickly create in-app messages for a specific website or web application.

To make this new version even more powerful, today, we’re extremely happy to announce an integration with the Canva design tool. 🎉🎉
This integration allows you to quickly create and upload graphic designs from Canva directly into your in-app messages, making them even more appealing. Now there’s no excuse for designing bad-looking messages for your website. 😉

So, what is Canva? 🎨

For people who have never used the tool: Canva is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that allows creating beautiful imagery and graphic designs for free — without requiring any design knowledge.

It offers a great selection of ready-to-use templates, illustrations, and icons that you can use to craft social media posts, animated gifs, corporate presentations, flyers, and the list just goes on.

As a marketer and Canva user myself, sometimes I cannot depend on my design team to launch a specific campaign. And I know how difficult it can be to create appealing designs with complex tools. 😅
With this challenge in mind, at Helppier, we thought Canva would be the perfect tool to integrate with and achieve our goals.

How does the integration work? ⚙️
