    I would second this, wholeheartedly!   The inability to blind transfer has been a real problem since we implemented in late October : (

    Hey Debbie - 

    We're continuing to accept feedback on this to see if it's something a significant number of customers have a need for, but haven't seen a large need for it as of yet. 

    The feedback that carries the most weight is detailed use cases, outlining why this functionality is needed and how frequently the need for it arises. 

    Everyone is welcome to continue to add their votes to the original post and share their detailed needs in the comments.

    I'm new to Talk . . . frankly, I'm so surprised that blind transfer is not here!!  Please help us with this.

    Thank you!

    Nicole - I see that you have requested use case information.  Here is our situation . . .

    Our contact center is a branch off a partner's IVR.  Callers dial into the main IVR (totally separate phone system from us, located in a different city), and callers only come to our contact center if they press certain menu options.  We often get calls which need to go back to our partner 's contact center (external numbers) or calls where we can help the customer for part of their problem, and they need to be transferred back to our partner's contact center (external numbers).

    As things are now, we are having to pay for any wait times callers have at any of partner contact centers, and this can be considerable.

    Let me please add that we view transferring as part of our customer service - we help students get to where/who they need.  Now we will have to change this practice to avoid costs and recording issues.

    We are now brainstorming workarounds; blind transfer would be great!

    Thank you!

    We have two internal teams (who are not in Zendesk) that have requested that we blind transfer calls to them so they can triage from their main line, rather than try to do a facilitated transfer directly to particular folks on their teams. It would be great to have this functionality.

    Please create the blind transfer option so we are able to transfer incoming calls to End Users!! This is a major pain point for us.  We need it!

    Whilst Zentalk gives us improved functionality compared with our previous telephony solution, our customer service teams are now offering our customers an inferior service to previously when we need to transfer a call to one of our many (approx 50) non customer service colleagues who are not on zentalk.

    Our customers don't always dial into our business using the appropriate number, necessitating a transfer.

    Our reception is manned only part time, so diverting back to reception to transfer is not always an option. doing so just adds in another touchpoint, one of the issues Zen and ourselves would want to see minimised.

    We do need to transfer callers to other departments - but now having to rely on colleagues to either answer or have voicemail switched on / divert to voicemail is unreliable.

    Even if they had voicemail on, this trips in only after 30 seconds, so we waste 30 valuable customer service seconds acting as a switchboard waiting for the call ti be picked-up.

    This lack of basic functionality is a real issue for our agents, colleagues and customers alike so please prioritise building in the required functionality.

    Please help!  Thank you

    Apparently, not enough people have asked for it yet, as this request was dated 2-1/2 years ago ... still waiting.

    Yeah, still waiting. Could really use a blind transfer feature along with extensions.

    Maybe zen would prefer us to have all our staff on zentalk, but that's not justifiable.  I can't see why this basic functionality isn't part of what otherwise is pretty cool software. A significant flaw.

    Please create a blind transfer option! It would be so helpful. We could really use it.

     

    Also, please create the option for extension numbers

    Maybe it help if we bring this up at Zendesk usergroup meetings as well?  I've had another vendor reaching out to me recently . . . they've been pointing out this functionality as a reason to leave Zendesk Talk.  Frankly, I'd rather stay, with the hope that Zendesk will be bringing us some of these important basics.

    I agree, this is a significant stumbling block for using ZenDesk Talk.  Our agents are having to wait on the phone for considerable amount of time for the transfer to be answered and this is wasting the agents time.

    ZenDesk, can this please be added to your Dev Roadmap!!
