Pros: The fact that Canvas takes away so much extra leg work behind the scenes, freeing up time for our employees to focus energy on more critical tasks.

Cons: The only recommendation I would have is to make functional improvements on multiple departments or groups sharing the same apps and functions. For example, a franchise group with several locations that need to keep consistency with apps across the locations

Overall: Canvas has cut out so many redundancies in our business and is extremely versatile. It has been fun getting creative with the workflow. Not to mention the endless advantages for remote use and management.

Pros: It is very easy to use in the field when I am meeting with a homeowner. They can sign my contracts right in their living room and it goes straight until a PDF. I like the layout of the program and customization. It has made my field team much more efficient and look more professional in the field.

Cons: If we have to change any documents, it is a bit difficult for our admin to do so. We have used it for a few years and there aren't many things that I would say are cons for Go Canvas.

Overall: It makes my team more efficient and helps in the field.

Retail Application for Greenhouse Growers

Comments: We are a live plant grower for "Big Box' retailers, and in some cases we own the product until the product scans through the register. We are responsible monitoring and maintaining the inventory in the garden centers, and a missed sale opportunity in the store means a missed sale for the greenhouse. It is very important that we have a true understanding of what our saleable inventory is in each store at any given time.

As part of this process, we employ merchandisers who will display and care for the product while it is at the retail location, and will throw away any product that is unsaleable. To maintain an accurate inventory, we need to know the variety of plant and the quantities that were thrown away.

Historically this process was done by filling out a paper form and then faxing it back to the greenhouse. Office personell would then take the faxes and then hand enter the data into our enterprise system which kept track of store inventory - a very time consuming ordeal.

We worked with Go Canvas to design an app that would allow our merchandisers to capture that data using their smart phones and submit the information instantly. The back end software takes that data and consolidates it so we ccan download it into one Excel file. That file is uploaded into our enterprise system and all store inventories are updated simultaneously.

While the app does save us money by spending less time hand entering updates, the real benefit is having a more accurate view of our inventory which enables us to capture every sales dollar.

Overall, we have been very satisfied with the service and the customer service has been great. I explained what I needed to my rep and they built the app to my specifications, and any time we needed to tweak things, they were more than happy to comply.

Pros: For clients in higher education looking for a premier online learning product built for social learning, Canvas is the product for you! Having worked in other learning management systems which encourage users to 'document dump' and treat their online courses like correspondence courses, I was quite pleased to design courses and teach in such a high quality learning management system. Additionally, appearance, text size, and other learning environment concerns are appropriate to the higher education context, particularly as accessibility is concerned. This is an excellent product!

Cons: As a fully featured product, there is a bit of a learning curve in using the product well. That said, i'm not sure how to avoid this in a robust learning management system.

Pros: That everything from the app to the pdf can be tailored to fully meet our requirements.

Cons: Nothing! It was easy to set up, easy to use, tweak, and easy for all users to understand and begin to use.

Overall: We have replaced paper property inspection forms which has not only added value to the service provided to our clients, but it has increased efficiency massively and has gone even further by protecting the company from certain liability claims by evidencing every property inspection in its entirety, with supporting photographs etc.etc.

Pros: Canvas manages to reduce the amount of physical paperwork to such a degree I don't know if we could ever go back to manually doing the majority of what we use it for again without some *major* pains across all departments.

Cons: While the platform works for most of what we would use it for there are some issues that are only evident when using it for various IT administrative functions; e.g. no fields for data formatting that is unique to an IT function like IP addressing requirements, limited support for handling handheld scanners, lack of time-stamping for what account has been updating what data, etc.

Pros: It does what it says and paperless documentation has streamlined our process

Cons: The learning curves to build new forms.

Overall: GoCanvas was the first and the only solution that we decided upon for our paperless contract documentation. We love the easy to use an app and the ability to scale with future employees. If We had one complaint it would the learning curve it takes to set up a new form. But once you understand how to build it everything is a snap.

Recommendations to other buyers: Experiment with the different features. It'll be worth your time

Pros: The ease of use from an admin and user perspective. Offline functionality is essential for us and GoCanvas delivers.

Cons: GoCanvas lacks some of the features that other products have. Features they have that other products do not (the dispatch calendar for example) are not built out well enough to be useful for our business. The essential features are there, but I eagerly await the addition of extra functionality as we constantly run into issues of, 'Wouldn't it be great of GoCanvas did this?!' Again, what GoCanvas lacks in features they make up for in droves on the user interface and ease of use. This has made company-wide implementation a relatively easy proccess.

Overall: They have a great and supportive team which is always willing to help.

Cons: My only complaint about the software is every time I make a change to an app it creates a new version therefore when I have to do a download of a project that has already been running for a year I have to make sure I am downloading the data from every version.

Overall: Got rid of a manual paper process.

Cons: I honestly don't have anything bad to say about the platform. We've had nothing but great experiences all around.

Overall: This platform is helping us streamline our business by speeding up the data and information flow between the field and our office.

Comments: GoCanvas has been incredible to work with. Our business is in Electrical Contracting, and GoCanvas designed a form on their app so that our employees don't need to fill out paper work tickets anymore. They also installed a barcode scanning system, so that our employees can scan items that they take from our warehouse to use at the jobsite. GoCanvas also give the ability to export those work tickets into a CSV or XML file, which means we can actually import those scans from their work tickets into our job costing software. It does so much more than we ever expected it to, which has made our switch to GoCanvas a seamless transition, and our employees who use it love it! But the best part about GoCanvas is their Customer Service. I've had issues mapping some updates I made to the app, and was in a hurry to get it taken care of (before our employees were going to scan), and they got my message and called me immediately. Their response time is great, and they make sure they actually help solve the problem if there is one. I can't say too many good things about their company, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to consolidate their paper forms into a paperless app.

Pros: Customer Service Adaptability Ease of Use

Pros: GoCanvas apps are amazingly easy to create. With just a little instruction or even by watching a few tutorials, most any level user will be able to create apps tailored to your specific needs.

Cons: For our particular business, we need the ability to scan and attach documents, not just photos. We have to use a workaround for this and wish the software could handle PDFs in addition to photos. But that's very specific to our needs; overall, there isn't much to dislike!

Overall: Implementing GoCanvas mobile forms has made an enormous improvement in getting pertinent information from job sites to our Project Managers in house. Paper forms completed in the field were not submitted timely and when submitted were often illegible. Now, we receive them daily in perfect form. Project Managers are now able to really manage what is happening in the field which has reduced downtime, unnecessary overtime, and makes month end pay request processing much easier, which translates to more timely payments to contractors and our firm!

GoCanvas has helped streamline our delivery process now that we can verify our deliveries digitally.

Pros: I can modify the app to do just about anything I need it to do for our company. We can verify who made the deliveries, who signs for the deliveries, where the deliveries occurred via gps, what items were delivered, and more. We aren't in the dark ages anymore, we can now lookup these items at any time via the online website vs looking through old folders of information!

Cons: Some of the operations can seem clunky and a little less intuitive. Once you learn them, it isn't hard to master, but it may not work the way you would originally think.

Comments: I wanted this software when my previous million dollar employer didn't care to be open to innovation. They didn't care to hear about an environmentally friendly supply usage app that would've reduced spending costs, and greatly reduced a large paper footprint in our world.

Recently, I've started my own company and my business now thrives from it. I'm not a software engineer and this program is user friendly so that I don't have to be an engineer. It's always evolving. I was just recently stuck on updating my company format... Ellen Weintraub, a customer service rep, chimed in and asked to help. She was able to solve my problem very efficiently.

I received a very positive response from this software. I was even able to cancel 2 very expensive subscriptions that this software has now replaced. All of my work is digital, and most of my customers prefer to be emailed.

I'd also like to extend my gratitude to Jason Good. He was the original customer service rep that reached out to me a few years ago, when I was trying to promote a better way for my previous employer to do business.

My advise to anyone reading this. If you work for a million dollar company that won't take a few minutes out of their day to at least listen to an idea that could possible save them money...it's time for a new company...with this software, and pricing, why not start your own company !!

Thank you very, very, much ! Go Canvas !

Pros: The ease in which a form can be created and deployed to users. I also like the ability to export the data in order to perform analysis.

Cons: Unable to attach additional files to the form. There are reports that are not static that I would like to be able to have saved and added to the form prior to submission

Pros: Very simple to use. Powerful options for importing and exporting data. As of October, GC have come out with a Free version for businesses with only one user. This could be quite amazing to get users on board and suit the needs of most small businesses.

Cons: Expensive for few users. We were wanting to have 3 Users (ie 3 Mobile devices) and pricing could not match alternate software offerings that I found.

Though I would likely think if I chose this software long-term, I would grow to love its feature-set.

Overall: Trialled GoCanvas extensively while coming up with a solution for our warehouses record-keeping.

Eventually went with ProntoForms and have learnt to love it and the many options I have to tweak and create new forms.

Pros: The ease of use for learners, teachers, and admins is hard to beat. There is so much functionality with very little work in maintenance.

Cons: Its hard to find something really bad. The only thing I can think of is if you want customization for an organization, the thresholds for users is maybe a bit high.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you have any sort of learning institute within your organization, whether corporate or not, this can be a useful tool. If you have classes that involve coursework over time, this is the best way to organize the course, distribute information to the learners, and have learners submit work and interact with each other and the instructor.

So far it's been a great app. It pretty much does everything our company needs it to do.

Cons: There is no "Select All" function for trying to copy apps. I have many departments and when i want to copy all aps from one department to transfer them to another it is very time consuming. If this upgrade could be done i would have no complaints about the product. I will go on to say that when i brought this up to Go Canvas they sent a ticket over to the solutions team and they did the transfer for me and it helped a ton.

Overall: It has been a great experience from day one. great customer support and Go Canvas is with you every sep of the way to get it up and running for your business.

Pros: I love the time that it saves us. Canvas allows us to be much more efficient with our time. I also like that it keeps our inspectors from forgetting to check certain things while on site, eliminating extra trips out.

Cons: The initial set up phase to get your apps set up takes a lot of effort. Canvas does offer a setup service that would streamline this though. Did not take advantage of this service. Much quicker and cheaper than having custom apps set up though.

It is very user friendly

Pros: It has a contemporary look and feel, great mobile app, easy to integrate 3rd party tools or systems, the collaboration, communication and assessment tools are the best. easy setup to make courses public or private or combined, good support, good availability for integrate with external systems. provides an array of extra features which makes in one of the best LMS on the market

Cons: The layout of the site is well organized but it tends to confuse on certain occasions due to the large number of options and features. it takes a long time to adapt to the environment, Nevertheless, once you get how to use it, worth the effort. the mobile app does not support all types of documents (it is not a recurring error, I have not been able to reproduce the error)

Pros: One thing I love about canvas is you don't need to have designer skills to use the software yet it make you look like a pro! Kudos team canvas!

Cons: I wish we had more photos (from the search button) to choose from, more free photos. Otherwise, I love canvas.

Easy to use.

I started using Canvas for a specific function, and have since created apps for a number of others.

Pros: The app allows me to create a template that captures consistent data no matter what I'm trying to do.

Cons: The way reference data has to be updated (by downloading, editing, and reuploading). It would be nice to edit data on the website.

Overall: Consistency of data collected. More efficient use of paper (not entirely paperless, but limits waste). Unique solutions for tasks. Increased communication through auto-generated e-mails. Data collected long-term with little effort or training.

Pros: Ease of use. I've been able to design it exactly like we wanted and make multiple changes through our testing process and immediately see the changes. Pricing is reasonable too.

Cons: I've struggled a bit with the calendar/dispatch feature. Maybe some more clarifying help files on this will do the trick, but there doesn't appear to be very robust options on pre-scheduling dispatches across the country.

Overall: Quick turn around time to get something on line without waiting on an internal IT team to work it into their already busy schedule.

Pros: The forms are easy to complete and scale well on any mobile device. You can capture GPS coordinates, camera information, time stamps, etc. You can implement 'if' conditions in the form editor to only display necessary information based on user selections.

Cons: The drag and drop interface of the online forms editor is cumbersome to use. For example, let's say a section of a form has a title, text box, and a dropdown field. If there are 5 sections, then each of the elements in each section have to be copied and then moved to the new sections of the form. There is no way to select the 3 elements as a group and paste them 5 times

One call to support and without waiting in a queue my issue was resolved in minutes.

Pros: Admin team receives PDF via email of field data collected which becomes a valuable reference document

Easily adjusted and reconfigured

Cons: Pricing scheme of per user gets very expensive. We had one user account that several employees would use to submit the same form. A busy week would see 4 submissions by 3 employees. Canvas insisted we pay for multiple users which in fairness meant 5 users at a discounted rate (depending on USD exchange)...simply not practical

Pros: I appreciate the ease of creating web forms to collect data along with the signature function. User adoption of the software is painless.

Cons: Unless you love reading through many rows of data, the reporting functionality is probably not for you. I use zapier to automate the export of my data into google sheets so that I can easily run reports. GoCanvas is costly considering it is basically a data collection tool without the ability to do even the most rudimentary analysis.

Been using Go Canvas for 2 months now and love it!!

Pros: Very using friendly for the workers using it in the field. Keeps all of my data in one place.

Cons: Not able to view the PDF format before official submission

Overall: I have 10 field foreman currently using apps and what a time saver. WE are currently converting all of our old forms from paper over to a digital version of a Go Canvas app. Everything form time sheets to extra work tickets and inspections in submitted digitally and I can save to our cloud or export it to others with the click of a mouse. The Go Canvas team was MORE than helpful during my initial training period. I would definitely recommend this to other colleagues. Thanks!

Pros: Easy to program and has very flexible logic solutions.

Cons: Wish I could set a default of at least 100 workflow dispatches to display on the page. Pretty bothersome to make an edit on dispatch 72, save it, and then have to scroll down to the bottom of the page to choose 100, to display 100 dispatches so that I can edit number 73. The current default is 25.

And, the Business Insights Add-in is no longer static in my Excel. So I have to reactivate the Gocanvas add-in every time I open Excel. This is a problem.

Overall: Very helpful team at Gocanvas.

Comments: As a large food retailer, we frequently require data from our 350+ field managers, Loss prevention personnel and so on. GoCanvas mobile forms saved us from receiving 300 emails for each audit, feedback request site visit etc. It saved us from deciphering 300 differently formatted excel files and it saved our colleagues in the field from carrying around heavy laptops, allowing them to spend much more time on the shop floor where they are needed.

The forms are fairly basic, but contain all the crucial elements you need and the online form design tool lets you customise them exactly as you want. More options always seems to spring up and there are a number of ways to customise your forms and their outputs.

Can't fault customer service - always very quick to respond to support requests and I haven't found a problem they couldn't solve (despite trying my hardest).

Overall a highly recommended app, service and company who I am please to deal with.

Pros: The fact that this application works offline. We have found in our search to find a mobile app provider that an offline capability is not standard. Go Canvas' app works offline from the start, big win for our organization and for Go Canvas.

Cons: Not that this is a big dislike, but the ability to brand the App with our company Logo. like I said this isn't a big dislike as we can brand each one of our forms. However it would be nice to have our company logo as the apps icon.

GoCanvas Apps has improved our field correspondence

Overall

Comments: We've worked with GoCanvas the last 2 years to make our field foreman paperless with all of their forms including Field Reports, Safety Inspections and Meetings, Request for Information, and Extra Work Orders. No longer do we wait a week to get a carbon copy of these forms, not to mention how easy to read they've become.

Pros: Forms are easy to create, just send your current ones to GoCanvas and for a small fee they convert for use on laptops, iPads and smartphones. Data can autofill from a spreadsheet we maintain and upload quite easily.

Cons: The form you fill out on your iPad, phone or laptop does not look like the final PDF form. You gather the info on a rather bland layout, then send it to GoCanvas who re-formats the info into your professional looking PDF.

Comments: I love GoCanvas App. I love the fact that I have gone virtually paperless. I have over 35 consent forms for clients to complete for my clinic, some of which can be up to 10 pages long. GoCanvas offers me(1) environmental friendly service (2) extra space- as I don't need filing cabinets (3) I never have to worry about a client consent form going missing, as I have an email back up as well as online filing system- this is reassuring from a litigation perspective. (4) GoCanvas offers me a comprehensive client record system i.e. I can take pre & post op photos prior to my clinic treatments- a requisite for some procedures from an insurance perspective.(5) support is prompt & friendly (6) its cost effective for y business, as I dont need to invest in software .. I would highly recommend it for any forward thinking business.

Pros: The fact that all of forms are in one place, and supervisors can fill forms out on their smart devices in the field and send all at one time. This not only saves time but money as well.

Cons: Not sure, but understanding all functions while building apps sometimes is a little hard. But nothing trial and error won't fix.

Overall: Simple and easy to use. Make doing daily paperwork easy. It also speeds up reporting on the time sensitive issues.

The company has done an excellent job responding to my countless questions.

Cons: A bit expensive for small department with many users. otherwise happy. The system seems to be easy to use, no issue there.

Overall: Use this before making decisions.
