Create and manage a team
As we mentioned in earlier guides, there are two types of Canva teams: free teams and Canva for Work teams. You need to create a free team first before you can upgrade it to a Canva for Work team.
Create free team
You can create a free team by clicking on the Create a team tab from the side panel of your Canva homepage. You can add up to 3000 members, including yourself, and create 20 free teams.
To learn more about creating free teams and adding team members to it, head over to our dedicate Create a free Canva team article.
Upgrade to Canva for Work
Do want to take your teams to the next level? You can do so by upgrading your free team to a Canva for Work team. With Canva for Work, you can access full Brand Kit features and unlock the Template Designer role.
To upgrade your free team, simply click on the Upgrade button from the side panel of your Canva homepage.
Clicking on the Upgrade button avails you of a 30-day free Canva for Work trial. You can add as many members as you wish during this time period. To learn more about upgrading, please refer to Upgrade to Canva for Work.
Managing team members
As team owner or administrator, you can manage your team by adding more members, changing member roles or even removing them as needed. You can easily do this by clicking on your team’s name, previously the Create a team tab, from the side panel.
To add more members, simply enter their email addresses and choose the role you wish to assign to them.
If you wish to change their roles or remove them from the team, it can be done by clicking on the Role dropdown across their email address.
To learn more about managing your team, you can refer to the articles from our Adding and removing members category.
