April 2022 Release: Piktochart Video, Text Frames, and 45 New Templates

Trivia time: According to our friends at, 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!).

We finally get to see each other in person this year! We are looking forward to another reunion because around half of the Piktochart team didn’t make it to this trip (including me who’s writing this blog post) 😀

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?

Piktochart is now more powerful with Piktochart Video and Piktochart Visual. This means you can create infographics, posters, data visualization, and videos in one platform.

Piktochart Video is a simple (we mean it!) video editor and screen recorder. Use it for your content repurposing needs, asynchronous video communication, and automatic generation of subtitles.

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.

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.
