Raise requests in Zendesk by adding emoji reactions to Slack messages in dedicated request channels.

What’s it for

Actioner’s conversational ticketing solution allows you to create Zendesk ticket just by adding 🎫 emoji to a Slack message. Providing your support team with time and effort savings.

How it works

Actioner allows you to create Zendesk tickets with just a glimpse of an emoji in Slack. Your support agents and requesters can also track the resolution process effortlessly through Slack threads. This is how it works:

  1. Requester sends a Slack message to a dedicated #request channel.
  2. When that exact message is reacted with ticket emoji, Actioner creates a Zendesk ticket and sends a thread reply to show a brief summary of the raised request.
  3. Your support team also gets the new ticket notification in their #triage channel with the ticket summary, including its ID, priority, status, requester, and assignee.

How to get started

  1. Once you install Zendesk app for Slack, first you'll connect to Zendesk and Slack.
  2. After, you'll run setup workflows to create Slack channels dedicated for different purposes. One of them is #actioner-request channel which will allow requesters to raise requests by sending a message to that channel and reacting with 🎫 ticket emoji.

➡️ If you created new channels: Actioner will create Zendesk tickets from Slack messages sent to the #actioner-request channel when ticket emoji is added-- this is set by default.

➡️ If you want to use your existing channels:

  1. Call Actioner app in Slack
  2. Choose Create new request and triage channel workflow.
  3. In the appearing form select your request and triage channels and from How to create tickets dropdown choose When reacted with ticket 🎫  emoji
  4. Then click Run.

💡 Don't forget to invite Actioner to your channels in Slack (Simply type @Actioner and click Send now).
