The canvas is where you are going to be spending a lot of your time mapping out your sales funnels, so it's super important that you understand all the functionalities of the canvas itself.
One of the first steps to getting started with Funnelytics is creating at least one funnel inside a project. In this article, our principal goal is to get you familiarized with the capabilities of our canvas, so you can get to building out your first funnel quickly and easily!
What you will find on the Canvas:
Inside the canvas you will notice there are different folders on the left hand side bar.
Each folder corresponds to a different set of icons that can be used to place on the canvas, as follows:
The pages folder contains icons that would represent the different pages in your funnel. In each page you can customize the label, add a URL, generate the thumbnail preview of the page, and various other settings.

Traffic icons represent where your traffic comes from. Whether that is Facebook, Google, an Email, or an affiliate. In the settings, you can also find a place to change the label.
Note: For users with tracking capabilities (Funnelytics PRO), this is where you will input your UTM parameters.
Actions allow you to represent on the canvas the different actions that someone will take on the page besides simply a page view. Actions include purchases, watch video, add to cart, complete form, scroll, click button, and pop-up box.
The offline folder contains icons that represent the offline interaction that your customers have with you. Anything that happens offline is represented here.
Offline marketing interactions include anything from billboards, signs, and pamphlets, to calls and telemarketing.
Templates allow you to save your completed funnels for use on other projects. After saving your funnel as a template, it will now appear in the templates folder. Just drag and drop the template onto your page to quickly display your saved funnel map.
