You can also go to Clients, click on the client’s name, then go to the Email tab. The NEW MESSAGE button will be green. This means that you’re now able to send messages, view and respond to client messages within that client’s profile, assign tasks from emails, and more.

To maintain good communication throughout your company, we encourage all team members to sync their email to TaxDome. Once the team has, their messages to and from a client will show up on the Email tab in that client’s profile.

This way, when a team member communicates with a client, your in-box won’t be cluttered with cc’s.  You will be able to access those emails from within the client’s profile.

You can stop email sync or change the email address that is synced to TaxDome whenever you’d like.
