If you want to distribute a public app via the Apps Directory, you need to submit it for review. Once submitted, a member of the Canva Apps team is assigned to review it. The purpose of this review is to verify that the app is functional, delightful, and appropriate for our audience. The specific criteria is outlined in the Submission checklist and UX guidelines.
To submit a public app for review:
Navigate to an app via the Developer Portal.
Select Submit for review.
Agree to the Canva Developer Terms.
Agree to the Canva Apps Terms.
Select Submit app.
There are two possible outcomes of the review process:
If your app is approved for release, Canva starts translating the app. This translation process is free, automatic, and prepares your app for distribution in 25+ locales. When the translation is ready (within about 72 hours), you can release the app.
If your app is rejected, you must create a new version of the app, make the suggested changes to the app, and re-submit the app for review.
