Canva Scheduler

A tool for scheduling social media posts.

What is Canva Scheduler?

Canva Scheduler is a feature offered by Canva, a graphic design platform, that allows users to schedule social media posts directly from Canva's interface. This feature is designed to help users save time and streamline their social media management process. Users can design their social media content using Canva's tools and then schedule the posts to be published on various social media platforms at specific times.

This tool supports scheduling for multiple platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more. It also allows users to preview their posts as they would appear on the respective platforms before scheduling. This feature is particularly useful for businesses and individuals who manage multiple social media accounts and need to plan their content in advance.

How to use Canva Scheduler?

Canva Scheduler is a tool that allows you to schedule your social media posts in advance. To use it, you first need to create a design in Canva. Once your design is ready, click on the "..." button at the top right corner of the screen and select "Schedule post".

You will then be prompted to connect your social media accounts if you haven't done so already. After connecting your accounts, you can select the date and time you want your post to be published. You can also choose the social media platforms where you want your post to appear. Once everything is set, click on the "Schedule" button. Your post will be automatically published on the selected platforms at the specified time.

Is Canva Scheduler free to use?

Canva Scheduler is not entirely free to use. While Canva itself offers a free version of its graphic design platform, the scheduling feature is part of Canva Pro, which is a paid subscription. Canva Pro offers additional features beyond the basic free version, including the ability to schedule social media posts.

The cost of Canva Pro varies depending on the subscription plan you choose. It can be billed monthly or annually, with the annual plan offering a discount compared to the monthly plan. However, Canva often offers a free trial of Canva Pro, so you can try out the scheduling feature and other Pro features before deciding whether to pay for a subscription.

Can I schedule social media posts with Canva Scheduler?

Yes, you can schedule social media posts with Canva Scheduler. Canva has introduced a new feature called "Content Planner" that allows users to schedule their social media posts directly from Canva. This feature is available for Canva Pro users and it supports scheduling for platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and more.

To use this feature, you simply need to create your design, click on the three dots at the top right of the screen, select "Schedule post," and then choose the date and time you want your post to be published. You can also manage all your scheduled posts from the "Content Planner" tab on the home page. This makes it easier to plan and manage your social media content strategy directly from Canva.
