How to create a furniture schedule

This article will show you how easy it is to create a furniture schedule from your digital mood board for furniture specification and procurement.
Canoa's Canvas is more than just another digital mood board tool. With one click, you can create a furniture schedule from the products on your Canvas, making the furniture design and specification process quick and easy.

Adding a Furniture Schedule to your Canvas

  • Open your Canvas mood board
  • Select the Add a Schedule icon on the toolbar, and the furniture schedule will appear on your Canvas.
  • Click on the different product view icons to control what is included in your furniture schedule.
  • Click the Download button and a .csv file of your schedule will be emailed to you.
The Schedule tool is located in the top Toolbar in Canvas.
Toggle between three views to edit your Schedule in Canvas. Click Download to have a CSV file sent to your email.

What to do with your Furniture Schedule

The Furniture Schedule emailed to you is a .csv file (CSV). A CSV, or comma-separated values file, is data saved in a table format and is one of the most common file types. It looks similar to a typical spreadsheet, but CSV files are plain-text or raw data. Since the file is raw data, you will need to import into another program that will allow you to add formatting and manipulate the data to your presentation needs. Once imported, you can edit, format and manipulate your furniture product data to create budgets, formatted status or inventory reports, and specification details as needed.

Accessing your Furniture Schedule:

  • Download the attachment emailed to you. And open the CSV in another spreadsheet program, like GoogleSheets, Excel, or Airtable to start editing and formatting.
