Small video how to use Zendesk Integration app
Setting up of the application is very easy. Just paste Zendesk subdomain. And also we can check the options for prepopulate: Name and Email if you need for logged in user. And click “Save” - so code will be prepared.
Then take a look to the instruction section. Here we can find a one line code for including into page templates. We must place this code before closing </head> tag on all pages where we want to place the widget.
Zendesk custom fileds feature to pass extra information
Zendesk has a very useful feature which called custom ticket fields. The application has a very easy setup for passing visitor’s data to the custom ticket fields. For example, let’s add 2 custom fields.
Let us set up prepopulation of that fields for logged in users. It is very easy. Just go to the custom field in Zendesk admin and copy the field ID.
Combining extra data into one zendesk field
if we want to combine few visitor’s fields into 1 ticket field, - we can set the same Zendesk field ID for all of BC fields, which we want to combine. And click the “Prepopulate” checkbox for each one.
After reload the page we see that fields contain visitor’s data.
Set passing data invisible. Hidden fields
We also can make widget interface clearer just by hiding these custom fields. For that we just set corresponding options.
Reload page again and we see that custom fields are not visible now.
Let’s now try to write some message and send ticket.
So we can see a new ticket in Zendesk. And when we open it we can see custom fields in the sidebar.
- Active Zendesk account
- Liquid markup enabled on website
- jQuery installed on website
Thats all. We hope you enjoy this app in your Business Catalyst site.
