Manage and track Zendesk ticket lifecycle in Slack

Manage the entire Zendesk ticket lifecycle seamlessly by tracking all ticket updates in one single Slack thread.

What's it for

Actioner improve your support workflow through sending Zendesk notifications to Slack, keeping your support team and requesters informed at every update, enabling a seamless communication and collaboration with magical and out of the world features.

How it works

When a new Zendesk ticket is created, Actioner instantly sends a real-time notification to your support team's designated triage channel in Slack. This notification contains a brief summary of the ticket, like its ID, priority, status, requester, and who's handling it.

Actioner's smart actions and emojis act as your trusty sidekicks in managing tickets without leaving Slack. Utilize smart actions such as ✍️ Update, 👀 Assign, 🔍 Show requester, ➕ Add follower, 🔏 Private ticket, and ➕ Create a follow-up ticket to handle tickets efficiently without leaving Slack. 

You can update tickets using emojis. The eyes 👀 emoji assigns the ticket to the user who added it, while the check mark ✅ emoji changes the ticket status to solved.

If you need to add an internal note that only your support team should see, just put the lock 🔒emoji at the beginning of your message. It's like whispering secrets within your team!

You can track Zendesk comments within Slack, all within the same thread. When a comment is added to the ticket, Actioner skillfully creates a new thread message in the triage channel's post, displaying the original commenter's name and their Slack profile picture if the commenter is a Slack user. This adds a personal touch to your team's ticket management by enabling smooth communication between your agents and your requesters.
