Zendesk is a customer service software that allows support teams to create, track, and resolve tickets across their entire customer base. Integrating Zendesk with Dialpad means a singular platform for your communications, whether internal or customer-facing.
Connect the Integration
You can connect Zendesk + Dialpad in both your Dialpad app and in Zendesk. Let's first take a look at connecting the integration to your Dialpad app.
Connect Zendesk in Dialpad
You'll need to enter your Zendesk domain plus your login credentials to finalize.
Connect Dialpad in Zendesk
Before taking these steps, make sure your Admin has added Dialpad from the Zendesk app store.
On your Agent view, click on the Dialpad logo to expand login options via G Suite, Office 365 or email and password.
Match a Customer Record in Dialpad
Once integrated, Dialpad will search through Zendesk to match your contacts with existing Zendesk users. If none exist, you can create a new record based on their Dialpad info.
And in the case where multiple matches appear, just select the right one to sync.
Create a Ticket in Dialpad
No need to toggle over to Zendesk to create a support ticket. Just select Create New Ticket to toggle between your brands, mark the priority, and add the details of the ticket.
Once created you'll see the ticket appear under Unresolved Tickets and All Tickets with the ability to click on either to launch your Zendesk portal.
Dialpad Tip: Did you know that Zendesk for Dialpad is supported on both Android and iOS apps?
Receive Calls and Create Tickets in Zendesk
When Agents receive a call, the Dialpad widget will automatically expand to display answer options.
Plus, we'll automatically load a New Ticket page for Agents to log the call and any notes.
Click to Call in Zendesk
Need to place an outbound call? Simply navigate to any ticket in Zendesk to have the Dialpad widget automatically populate the Call button with your customer's number.
Agents will even have the option to toggle between their assigned caller IDs before placing their calls.
The Dialpad widget also houses general app settings that Agents will be familiar with using the desktop app. Those include:
- Profile settings
- Caller ID toggle
- DND toggle
- Call screen/search
- Widget settings (Dept DND + Call Queue DND)
View Post Wrap Up Time
After ending a call, you'll see your post wrap up time displayed across your widget with the option to end early and hop back in the queue.
