Trivia time: According to our friends at Dictionary.com, the word April comes from the Latin word aperire which means “to open” or “to uncover”.
The month’s name is a nod to all the beautiful flowers and trees that bloom and come out of hibernation throughout the month in the northern hemisphere.
Speaking of things that bloom and open, the world is also starting to open its borders, so… drum roll… the Piktochart team got together in person this month (finally!).
Despite all the busyness and the lengthy to-do lists to take care of last month, especially the frantic week before the launch of Piktochart Video (more on that later!), here’s a quick look of the shiny new things we shipped for you in April.

Launch of Piktochart Video: Video editor and screen recorder rolled into one
In early April, we launched Piktochart Video (formerly Piktostory, a separate product that we used to offer).
What does this mean for you as a Piktochart user?
Meanwhile, Piktochart Visual (the new name for the old Piktochart) lets you create infographics, presentations, reports, and prints in minutes.
You can easily switch between Piktochart Video and Piktochart Visual from your new dashboard. You’ll notice a new look and feel as you log in to your account.
You can learn more about the merge in this detailed announcement post: Introducing Piktochart Video. Plus, the video tutorial below shows you how easy it is to make and edit your first video clip in Piktochart.

Here’s a preview of our newly-added employee referral templates and hiring posters.

Make data-informed recruitment decisions with our new recruitment dashboard template
A recruitment dashboard is a visual representation of your recruitment metrics. It paints a picture of how your recruitment funnel is performing and could include information about your recruitment goals, budget, time to hire, and sources of high-quality talent.
If you’re new to recruitment dashboards, you don’t have to make one from scratch. The template below can help you make your own recruitment dashboard in less time.
Present your employee engagement report results through data visualization and infographics
Find out where your organization’s at in terms of employee morale and share your survey results with our new employee engagement and satisfaction reports. We also added more employee onboarding and employee-of-the-month poster templates!
These formats are easier to understand for your audience and ideal for quick presentations and email attachments.
New SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) report template added to the collection
In January, we introduced our SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) templates and talked about SDG reporting. Three months later, we added a few more templates in this category.
New collection of editable and downloadable brochure templates
We noticed an uptick in usage of our brochure templates in the past couple of months, so we added new templates to the collection, including the crowd favorite: trifold brochures!
Happy mother’s day ad flyer templates
Memorial Day flyer templates
New diagram text frames
What are these text frames for?
Explain complex processes, hierarchies, and workflows better with these new ways to visualize your content. We’ve already published a total of 185 diagram-related text frames (and photo frames) as of April.
Happy Pikto-charting and until next New at Pikto update!
