How to invite team members to collaborate & share

This article will show you how to share your Canvas furniture presentation and mood boards with everyone on your design team for seamless collaboration.

‍‍‍Canoa was designed to make collaboration easy and simple. Working together on mood boards, furniture layouts, projects and product schedules should be as easy online as it is in person. Effortlessly welcome collaborators, commenters, or viewers directly into your design canvas, creating a shared space where you can focus on teamwork and spend less time dealing with email. This collaborative approach ensures that you can engage in productive interactions, brainstorm collectively, and accelerate the decision-making process. Because good design is never done alone.

Inviting team members to collaborate with you
