At this point, all file structures have to be manually created inside Canopy. However, it is possible to create a Master File Template outside of Canopy that contains your file structure, and then import it in. This is the same process for uploading large amounts of files.
First, you will need to create the folder you want to upload into Canopy. The name of this folder will be the top folder that gets pulled into Canopy. In this example, we have titled it "2017."
Within the folder, create the sub folders that you want to template:
These folders will be created automatically after you upload the file template into Canopy. Whatever folders and subfolders are within the master file will be created.
The next step is to "Compress" or "Zip" the master folder (depending on if you are using a Mac or a PC). You can do this by right-clicking on the folder:
This will create a zipped file at the same file level as the master file that you can upload to Canopy:
Upload that file to Canopy for each client that you want to have the folders for.
Once the zipped file is uploaded, you will see it in the document list. by right clicking on the file inside Canopy, you can select Unzip to unpack the contents into Canopy:
Once the file is done unzipping, you will see the same file structure copy into your client's files section, and the zip file will be gone:
