Now a new menu with various data sources will open in front of you.

Now we have to delete the existing data samples by clicking on the ‘Clear Table’ button from the left bottom corner of the new table.

After clearing the sample data, we can start by adding the desired data to the table.

  • Note: Take a closer look at the template and make a note of all the fields that you would like to customize such as Your name, email address, phone number, etc.

Now click on the top column and then label it with your desired field

For example, I want to label my first column as ‘Your Name’. So, I will type ‘Your Name’ in the top column.

Label Your Column

After labeling your first column, click on the ‘Add Text’ button from the top left corner of the screen to add a new column to your table.

Now again click on the second column and then label it.

For example, I will label as second column as ‘Title’.

Just click on the row and start typing your desired text.

Enter Your Information under the headings

Note: Follow the same process to add data under all the headings.

Once you click on the row below the ‘Image’ heading. A new menu with previously uploaded images in Canva will open in front of you.

After entering your desired data, click on the ‘Done’ button from the bottom right corner of the screen.

3. Connect Data Fields

Now after creating columns and adding data to the table, we have to connect that data with the existing elements of your design.

To do that, just right-click on the element to get access to a new menu.

For example, I will right-click on the ‘Juliana Silva’ text element for demonstration purposes.

right click on the element

From the new menu, click on the ‘Connect Data’ button. Then click on the data field that you would like to drop into that element.

Click On The Data Field

For example, I will connect my ‘Juliana Silva’ text element to the ‘Your Name’ data field.

  • Note: In this way, connect all the data fields with the elements on your template. Just remember that you can only connect the image field with the image element on your design.
Click On Continue Button

After connecting all the data fields, click on the ‘Continue’ button at the end.

From the new menu, check the boxes of the pages that you want to create.

For example, I want to generate both pages. So, I will check the box of the ‘Select All’ option.

Check The Boxes Of The Pages

Lastly, click on the ‘Generate Pages’ button at the bottom. Now after a few seconds, a new window with generated pages will open in front of you.
