What is a design folder in Canva?

A design folder in Canva is a feature that allows users to organize their designs and projects in a more efficient and systematic manner. It helps in keeping the workspace tidy by grouping related designs together. This feature is especially useful for users who work on multiple projects simultaneously or have a large number of designs, as it allows them to easily locate and access their work.

Design folders can be customized according to the user's preference. Users can create new folders, rename existing ones, and move designs between folders. They can also share folders with other users, making collaboration easier. This feature is available in both free and paid versions of Canva, but the number of folders a user can create may vary depending on the subscription plan.
