When we need tech support who do we contact?
We want our clients and their staff to be comfortable using the system, so the first 90 days you have phone support, as well as online chat and online issue tracking support (similar to email support).

Thereafter, if an issue requires our immediate attention, pick up the phone for help. Otherwise, online chat is great for how-to-questions, and online issue tracking is great for issues that require an explanation and tech intervention, such as fixing user error or changing reports or business rules.
How does CANVAS online issue tracking work?
If an support issue requires an explanation to identify the problem, you can create a support ticket in the issue tracking system in CANVAS. Whenever a support ticket is created, it is reviewed by a support specialist within 15-30 minutes and updated with a current status.

You will receive a pop-up whenever the issue is updated with a question or resolution, and you can add comments when necessary.
Will my in-person and online transactions populate into my Accounting System?
CANVAS integrates with Quickbooks (QB) DeskTop and QB Online. Your bookkeeper stays on top of daily, weekly transactions in two steps. You can populate the several QB general ledger accounts for your classes, supplies, donations and ticketed events revenue.
What development software integrates with CANVAS?
We currently integrate with Bloomerang for Donor Development and Tableau Data Visualization for great dashboards on everything else.
If I wanted to keep my CRM software, which ones integrate with CANVAS?
CANVAS has its own CRM features for sending emails and letters. From using customizable templates to automatically generated emails and letters. We currently integrated with Constant Contact and MailChimp. But, go ahead and ask us if there is another software package you want to use with CANVAS.
