There are a few ways to create a post in Canny. Let's take a look at all the possibilities:

Anyone with access to this page will be able to create a new post, admins included. Canny does take steps to prevent duplicate posts from being created, but just in case, you can always merge two posts if they overlap.ย 

Users who are not identified via Canny Identify are prompted to create a free Canny account so you at least have a name and email address. Feedback is always more valuable if you know who it's coming from!

3. From an integration (e.g. Zendesk, Intercom, Salesforce, etc.)

Track feedback without leaving your existing workflow by using Canny's powerful native integrations. No need to send users to an external link or have employees navigate to a different page. Canny also links the conversation/contact directly in the voter list of each Post. You always have context just a click away!ย 

4. Using the Canny Chrome extension

The Chrome extension is available only on the Business plan. But it allows you to add feedback to Canny from anywhere.

5. Via the Canny API

Canny's powerful API lets you supercharge your Canny experience! Learn more
