The challenges

As a customer-centric company, Canva places user feedback at top priority. The nature of their user-friendly interface aimed at non-technical users needed an easy to use in-product feedback platform to match in terms of convenience.

1. Communicating graphical matters with users

When users require additional support or have suggestions to share, the original feedback method was through exchanging text messages via email or social media, which are managed 24/7. To fully take advantage of every piece of user feedback, Canva wanted to empower their design community to share as much detail as possible in the first interaction and with minimal effort, so support staff and engineers can fully understand customers needs.

2. Unsolicited customer feedback sources

With the fast growth of Canva, hitting over 15 million users in 2019, the amount of feedback also multiplied. Users would go on social media to send messages, or write emails to give suggestions. As Canva cares to welcome all commentaries, they seek to streamline the feedback and empower customers to communicate with them within the product as often suggestions for new features and improvements is in the context of the current product.

3. Internal bug tracking efficiency

Upon receiving product feedback or conducting testing, the tickets created would cycle between the product managers and engineers. As Canva is a design and graphic tool, visual information as well as technical data are essential to streamline improvements. Visual aid helps to ensure efficiency.
