After integration view

Use the same email you used to set up your Zendesk account in your WP ERP dashboard. After successful integration a Zendesk widget called Recent tickets on Zendesk will appear in all contacts profile in your CRM.

Now when a user submits a new ticket on Zendesk, it will be instantly added to this widget present in the user’s profile.

You can view the ticket number, subject of the ticket, and the status of the ticket right from your CRM contact profile when you open it.

What happens when a ticket is submitted via Zendesk?

As soon as a ticket is submitted, the contact will sync with your CRM.

If a new user submits a ticket, a new contact will be created in your CRM→Contacts and a new ticket will be added to the widget, which is visible when you open the user profile.

If an existing user submits a new ticket, the new tickets will be added chronologically in the Zendesk widget present in his/her profile. Old tickets will also be integrated. The tickets will display with the latest ones on top.

Note: Zendesk integration will sync all the contacts in your Zendesk help desk support system.

By default, the life stage will be Customer. You can change this in the default setting for all contacts, or you can change it manually for each contact by visiting the contact’s profile.

Moreover, you can now email this contact directly, log activities, schedule meetings and other things, add tasks, and send SMS right from your CRM dashboard, without having to resort to different mediums for each of these activities.

That’s all about WP ERP-Zendesk integration!
