Upload your Canva designs to Gain

In this article: 

Whether you use Canva for social media posts, print materials, infographics, Instagram Stories, or Facebook covers, you can import them to Gain directly from Canva and bring them into your approval and collaboration workflow. 

Before you get started 

Make sure to have an active Canva account to use this integration. If you have a free Canva account, there might be some design templates that you will not be able to use. 


  • This integration only supports images. You will not be able to save videos created in Canva to Gain.* 
  • You can save up to 10 images* but be mindful of the limit allowed by each social network.
  • The content you save will only appear under workspaces that you have Contributor, Publisher, or Administrator access to.

*This is due to a limitation by the Canva API. We’ll be able to add this functionality as soon as it’s available.

Connect Gain to Canva

You can connect Gain to Canva after you’ve finished a design, or you can find Gain under the section Supercharge your workflow in the Canva Apps Directory.  

Export your design to Gain

Follow the steps below to save your finished design in Gain. 

  1. Click the dropdown arrow next to “Download” on the top corner of the toolbar. 

2. Select Gain

3. Select the workspace, social channel, or file folder where you’d like to send your designs.

If your design has multiple pages, click the dropdown and select the ones you want to export.

4. Add a short description of the files (not optional). Anything you write here will appear on your Gain post, and you can edit it later. Click  Save

Once the export is finished, click View in Gain to be redirected to your Gain account. You’ll be able to see your designs in the calendar on the same day you exported them to Gain.
