Keeping up with all of the new updates at Venngage can be tough. Sometimes big features that would make your job easier might slip through the cracks.

Or you might completely miss small updates to your favorite features. 

This month we really focused on improving the user experience, which guided most of our new updates and features.  

So let’s get into it!

 

Here’s what’s new on Venngage:

 

CSV Import 

No one wants to copy hundreds of pieces of data into a chart or graph. With our brand new CSV import tool, you will never have to again! 

To add your CSV to your design, click on your graph or chart and then click Import:

Select your CSV file from your computer, then click Open, and that’s really it! Your CSV data will be added automatically to your data visualization.

Once your file is uploaded you can easily edit, update or delete data directly from the Venngage editor.
