    Hi, Renee – 

    Thanks for this. Very detailed. I'm interested to know if you can tell me what you use the verification status for? It seems like you may be looking at this piece of information a lot more frequently than many of our other users, and I'm interested to know why. We're thinking a lot about how verification works, and your particular focus may be very useful.

    Hi, Max,

    Yes, we have our account security set up so that you must have a Zendesk account to create a ticket and we require that initial tickets always be created via ticket forms so that we get the most information we can on the initial ticket creation, reducing back and forths.

    This means that our end-users fill out the ticket form, and when Zendesk sees that no account exists for the email they used, it starts to create their account and sends them an email to verify the email address. Which we want for security reasons. It then drops it in the suspended ticket queue until that email is verified.

    We find that emails that are not verified are usually due to typos so the player will never receive our emails and/or if they didn't get the verification email usually the spam or server settings for spam are too high and they didn't get our email to verify their email and again won't receive any subsequent replies from us. 

    Not working these unverified email tickets greatly reduces work from our agents that will never be received.

    Hope this clarifies. Happy to provide more details if needed.

    Thanks, Reneé! Very helpful. If you're requiring verification, how are your agents coming across tickets from unverified users? Are they using suspended ticket recovery to create fully fledged tickets, or are they somehow getting through another way?

    Would you say you're primarily concerned with ensuring agents don't spend time answering questions from unverified users, or with making sure valid users verify their email addresses?

    I am concerned for both reasons and so far, I think I have found two ways the unverified emails creep into the system. However, there may be more that I have not uncovered.

    1. Mistakes when checking and managing the suspended queue tickets. 2. When an end-user adds or changes emails on their Zendesk account and subsequently doesn't verify it/them.

    Thanks, Reneé, noted. This is great. We're thinking about lots of things related to this, and while there aren't any projects ongoing at the moment, we're always grateful for this feedback so that we can take it into account as we continue development.

    Having a report that would tell us who is in an unverified status allows us to reach out to them and encourage them to "verify" or determine that they are no longer in need of being an end user and remove the.     It seems this would be a standard report, provide a listing of those end users that are in an "unverified" status and then a report for those users that are "verified" .   How soon could this be made available?
