Why embed Canva files in a Bit document?

1. Stops the email madness!

We often share our designs with our peers over email. Then we try to explain what the design is about in the following emails, and before you know it you’re drowning in a sea of questions and answers!

When you have your important content scattered around different devices and tools, your productivity always takes the backseat. It becomes all too easy to get lost in a sea of browser tabs, and shatter that workflow!

Browsing through hundreds of folders, searching in your disorganized and massively populated inbox, searching through your cloud files, etc., all end up being a search mission that’s impossible to crack.


2. Bring context to your design work

Sometimes you want more than just an email to explain what a particular file is about. You need context, information, and text to make your peers and teammates understand what the Canva file that you just shared is all about and what they are supposed to do with it.

Embedding a live Canva file inside a Bit document provides you with that much-needed space to discuss, give suggestions and feedback, and collaborate effectively- without people being lost and feeling confused.


3. Bring your team under a single roof!

In order to carry out your effective collaboration and communication, you need to get rid of all the apps that seem to slow you down rather than make things better.

You need to bring all of your cloud files, data, content, and most importantly, people, under a single virtual roof. Where all your documents, spreadsheets, marketing, and sales collateral, internal wikis, and knowledge and co-exist without the need for any third-party communication tool or chat app.
