Let your support team track ticket updates and share their comments in a single Slack thread. Enable smooth communication between your help-desk team and your end-users. - **Zendesk actions on Slack:** Create, view, and assign Zendesk tickets, change their statuses, add followers to them, and much more within Slack.  - **Private tickets:** Enable private conversations between your support team and your requesters by moving the conversations from request channels to direct messages in Slack. - **Automated CSAT surveys:** Send automated DMs to your requesters to rate their support experience. Create CSAT reports and share them with your team. ## How it works Zendesk and Slack integration brings conversational ticketing to your teams. Once you install Slack Zendesk app, you need to connect to your Zendesk and Slack instances and proceed to complete a few simple setup steps. When your users or customers are having a problem, they can send a message to the Slack channels dedicated to raising requests. Actioner automatically gathers the required info and creates a Zendesk ticket in an instant or when reacted with 🎫. You can also select to require a form if you need to collect additional info from your requesters. Once a ticket is created in Slack or Zendesk, Actioner sends a notification to your support team's triage channel.  Requesters can continue communication with your support agents on the same message where they raised their requests, and your agents can interact with the requesters in their dedicated triage channel. Once the ticket is closed, it automatically gets archived to prevent channel message overload and lets your support team focus on what's important.
