Canopy has a wide range of use cases that cater to the needs of various industries and departments. Users have reported utilizing Canopy for managing sales pipelines, tax document collection, and workflow through tax preparation. With its features like CRM, file sharing, client account management, and project management, Canopy becomes a valuable tool for organizations involved in accounting and bookkeeping.

The software also simplifies tax-related tasks by allowing users to pull tax transcripts and prepare tax resolution letters. It streamlines tax compliance cases from client engagement to completion and payment by facilitating communication, information requests, and secure document storage. Furthermore, Canopy serves as a one-stop solution for managing workflows, sharing documents, collecting signatures and payments, and acting as a virtual filing cabinet. It enhances efficiency in reporting and consolidation, providing users with a streamlined and organized approach to business operations. From remote office teams securely viewing client documents stored in the cloud to tax preparers requesting additional documentation and tracking progress, Canopy proves to be an invaluable asset in various scenarios.

Intuitive File Sharing: Users have found Canopy's file sharing feature to be intuitive, allowing them to easily access historical documents and view it as a repository of shared files rather than just a file delivery system. This sentiment was echoed by multiple reviewers.

Efficient Task Management: Several users have praised Canopy for its task management feature, which enables effective delegation of work and efficient project management. With this feature, users can streamline their workflow and ensure tasks follow standard operating procedures consistently.

Time-saving Tax Resolution Module: The tax resolution module in Canopy has been commended by multiple reviewers for saving significant hours of time on phone calls with the IRS and form creation. By automating a substantial portion of the work, this module allows users to focus on other important aspects of their business operations.

Email Logging Issues: Some users have experienced issues with email logging in Canopy, although they acknowledge that the support team is usually responsive in resolving these problems.

Signature Request Module Limitations: Several clients have encountered difficulties with the signature request module as it does not allow for not required fields. This has caused inconvenience for clients who cannot select one of three products from a list when signing up for services, forcing them to use another system for electronic signature requests.

Client Assignment and Search Functionality: Users have reported that clients are not automatically assigned to the entire team, resulting in them not appearing in searches and seeming non-existent to team members unless specific settings are adjusted. The process of setting up new clients has also been inconsistent at times.

Canopy is one of our accounting solutions that deal with taxation, cost analysis, billing, CRM, and others. Specifically, Canopy deals with investors where there is order and purchase management to get the right product with the best market value. Furthermore, Canopy fosters project accounting, which controls the efforts and the resources utilized. Canopy has the tax forms and supports the filing of the taxes online for companies.

I had Canopy initially implement specifically in the tax department to manage my tax resolution clients but during the initial 12 month subscription, we determined it would be a useful customer relationship solution so it was rolled out to the accounting &amp; bookkeeping area.<br><br>Canopy delivered a single source platform to manage the entire client relationship. We used it to collaborate amongst team members, store critical client documents and create IRS forms to submit. I also was impressed with the transcript delivery tool.

Canopy is our one-stop for our entire company. We have one place to keep client files, communication streams, workflow and tasks along with billing and time tracking. We were working out of various spreadsheets and internal hard drive with client data. Now we have cloud access all to one place.

It is being used across our finance and tax departments to make sure we are in compliance with state and federal laws. It also allows a streamlined and organized approach to our business and provides some checks that make our process much more efficient from a reporting and consolidation perspective.

The entire organization uses Canopy for CRM, email tracking, task management, and document exchange. It is also crucial to our remote office team to view documents stored securely in the cloud for our clients. Tax preparers use it specifically to request additional documentation needed for preparation and to track progress in an engagement. Our Enrolled Agent uses it for tax resolution information gathering and form completion, and for transcript requests.

I have a very small business, just myself and one other employee. We use Canopy for all tax compliance cases, even as minor as just responding to notices. It helps us streamline the process of tax compliance cases, from getting clients to sign the engagement, all the way to the completion and payment. It helps with communicating with clients, requesting information and storing documents securely for both our team and clients to see.

I use it for almost everything—tax resolution work, of course, but it’s more than tax resolution software. Canopy makes it easy to do all my professional emailing, set automated client reminders, and request and access files, all in the same place. It’s all the stuff you’d expect from a practice management software and then some. Canopy is quickly becoming an all-in-one software for my practice.
