Understanding roles and permissions

User Roles in Canva let you define and control what each team member can and cannot do within your Canva team. This ensures each of your team members has a set of tools tailored to fit the tasks they need to focus on only, improving overall effectiveness and efficiency within your organization.

Canva supports 4 different kinds of user roles:

  • Owner
  • Administrator
  • Template Designer
  • Member

To better understand how they can work to help you streamline your creative workflow, let’s take a look at what each User Role allows team members to do.

Owner


The owner role is automatically delegated to the user who created and set up a Canva team. Similar to the administrator role, an owner can manage a team, produce new templates, and make and edit a brand kit. However, only an owner can delete a team they’ve created.

Administrator


An administrator manages your team by defining who is part of a team and assigning user roles, is able to produce templates for your team, and can make and edit your brand kit. This role is ideal for those in charge of overseeing the entire team but are not heavily involved in producing creative material or designs.

note: If you’re a team owner or administrator wanting to know how to change or assign different roles to your members, you can refer to our article about Changing roles and permissions.

Template Designer


A template designer can produce templates for your team and make edits to your brand kit. Ideally, the template designer role is assigned to the designer on your team or whoever is in charge of safeguarding the integrity of your brand’s visual identity. This role is exclusively available for Canva for Work teams only.

Member


Members can create new designs based on brand templates or from scratch. They cannot make templates for your team and cannot make edits to your brand kit or team templates. This user role is ideal for anyone within your organization who needs to produce visuals, like presentations or letters on stationery, that adhere to brand guidelines.
