  • (2022-05-14) Lomas: It does not work, before it worked well, I found a replacement (canva automate maker).
  • (2020-09-22) Chris Szymanski: I thought it was acting up on me, I sent in a support request and within minutes I started getting help. Amazing Service! Within two hours we had a remote connection and determined that the VAR1 needed to be on its own text block independent of the rest of the text. Now it works flawlessly... Thanks! If at first you don't succeed, reach out to support! Wicked fast! Thanks APOD!
  • (2020-09-10) Junior Iopu: Tool is NOT downloading files with a transparent background. Everything is working fine except the most important part which is ensuring the design is downloaded with a transparent background. Although this is a great took IF it works as designed, right now it is not. I would like my money back please, and there is no contact details on your site

  • (2022-04-03, v:1.14.0) Lizanne Aponte: Not Working!
    Hi! Just got the extension and when using it, it replaces the var1 with first variable and then does nothing. No processing, no download. Looking at reviews it seems I'm not the only one. Is this a temporary thing or should I ask for my $ back? TIA
  • (2022-04-02, v:1.14.0) The Dressed Up Mule: Not working on Canva 4-2
    Hello, for some time the Canva integration is not working right. It will not download files. It will not create a file after the 1st one created. It stops at line (row 2). Help. Mike Burk [email protected]
  • (2022-03-09, v:1.14.0) Sarah Brennan: Not working
    Hi I have been using the extension for a few weeks and it has worked perfectly with Canva. However the last couple of days, when I have tried to use it, it will only load up the first one on the list, doesn't save or go any further, can you please advise.
  • (2022-03-02, v:1.13.0) Mak Tobby: Audtomate POD is not working
    I have the chrome extension and canva pro account. However, when i start to run the .csv file, the "VAR1" on my design was replaced by only the first word in the csv file and everything stops. It did not generate any designs automatically or download any files at all. Please advise or refund. Thank you.
  • (2022-01-14, v:1.12.0) Sintastic: Canva won't start downloading
    When I try to use AutomatePOD with Canva, it never downloads anything. I have a csv file with 3 columns, VAR1, VAR2 and File Name. Once I import the csv file and start the process I can see it takes the values for var1 and varr2 from the first entry and adds them to my design. And it looks correct. But that is where it stops. It just never tries to download anything and completely stops. I have tried it on two different computers, one MacOS and one Windows 10 and I get the same issues on both. I was not sure if you had any ideas, or if something may have changed in Canva or even Google Chrome. I am going to try photopea next just to see if it works in there. Please let me know if you know of anything else I can try to resolve this issue. I have also tried other csv files, even the template files I downloaded from the automated.com site. Same issue happens with those as well. I do have a Canva pro subscription.

  • (2021-09-08, v:1.11.0) Doron Cohen: Automate POD not working on new laptop
    Hello, I bought Automate POD and it worked perfectly with Canva in my old laptop. I then bought a new laptop and logged into Automate POD through the Chrome extension. While on the Automate POD website the login was successful, the Chrome extension didn't change and it's still showing the "get started" view. Screenshot: https://prnt.sc/1rklld8 I emailed you at [email protected] but didn't receive any response. Also, I tried subscribing to Automate POD using a different email address with my new laptop but the same issue still occurs. Please advise.

    Hey guys i've dowloaded the templates and have successfully downloaded 2-3 files however after a few downloads Canva will Crash and be unable to download the rest. Is there anything in particular causing the issue?

    hello, i just recently paid the charge to try out the extension, and when I logged in through PayPal to purchase, it wont let me use the extension, even though PayPal said it went through. So my question is can I just get a refund since it was about an hour ago that i purchased it?

  • (2020-09-22, v:1.10.2) Chris Szymanski: VAR1 not inputting new values.
    Script runs but none of the variables are being input. I used the years.csv file, made sure the VAR1 was capitalized and all I got (repeatedly) was a folder full of the same year (2019). Did Something break?

    I cannot use it with Canva. I am having issues uploading. Please issue a refund

  • (2020-08-31, v:1.10.1) Kelli Weber: Can't load csv file
    While in automatepod.com/photopea, I can't load the csv file. It continues to ask me to subscribe. I already have a profile and loaded the extension. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Appreciate any support.. thx
  • (2020-08-29, v:1.10.1) John Arceta: Billing Issue
    Hello, I tried to use a code in Ryan's video, I used the code expecting to get 50% off, however it only said the code was invalid after the card was billed. So I am paying $30 instead of 15. I like Ryan and wanted to support his content, but paying $30 when similar automation tools are 3x less. I do not have a lot of money, so If we could somehow work this out this would be great.
  • (2020-08-13, v:1.9.1) Carmen Ho: Doesn't work as described
    I basically followed the instructions/tutorials exactly. I subscribed monthly, added the chrome extension, and tried utilizing the extension in Canva (as a Canva Pro user). The first time I opened the Automade Pod extension, I was able to upload the .csv file and select the appropriate options. However, when I clicked "submit" (or whatever the button was... I only saw it once), it did not do anything. So I thought okay, I will try again. Closed the window, tried changing other things (maybe destination folder was too long?), still didn't work. Subsequently, every time I try again, clicking on the extension just showed the message that I need to subscribe. So I go and log in again at the Automate POD website, and successfully log in. I go back to Canva, click the extension, and it STILL tells me I need to subscribe. I have clearly already subscribed, but it doesn't recognize that for some reason. So I can't do anything, once again. NOW, after closing the browser, clearing cache, etc. when I click the extension it literally just shows the spinning gears forever. Waited for an hour, still spinning gears, can't do anything. Please. Investigate and fix these problems. Until then, I rule this extension as completely unusable.
  • (2020-07-20, v:1.9.1) Marc Soltau: It doesn't work
    Hi there, just subscribed to Auto POD but it doesn't work so far. I already had Canva Pro previously and I did everything exactly as described in the tutorial that I watched several times now. I refreshed browswer and restarted my laptop. I actually tried many different things and there is always a different problem, so I can't even pin down what could be the cause. - Tried one of your spreadsheets and it changed to the fist VAR1, but did not generate more nor did it download anything. - Tried a customed spreadsheet - nothing at all, not even a change from VAR1 placeholder to content. - Tried another of your spreadsheets, then nothing happened except that my uploaded graphic disappeared from the canvas. So yeah, don't really know what causes the problem. THX
