Show Requester's Email on the Ticket

    Hey John,

    When viewing a ticket, you can always click into the customers profile from the ticket to view their email address linked to the profile. The email address on the profile linked to the ticket will be the email they have sent the ticket to you from.

    Hey Amie!  The issue arises when the user has multiple emails on their profile, there's no indication directly on the ticket which of the emails the ticket was sent from without opening the "View Original Email" pop-up. It'd make my company's (and I'm sure many others') work much easier if that information was readily viewable from the ticket view.

    100% this.

    This used to work fine

    So now to work out someones email i have to click another button that loads ALL their tickets lets say they have 7000 tickets (very possible) that takes time to load then i have to go into their primary email field and copy from there. How slow is all of that,it used to just be there! add it back in, a complete design failure.

    Any updates?

    We were wondering the same thing, we use zendesk for our HR team and having the email address show up next to the profile would really curb potential scammer emails from getting too far

    +1. There should be an option to display the email address of the requester and any CC'd addresses without needing any action from the agent. 

    This would help us quickly see if there is a high priority contact involved to escalate the ticket without relying on an agent to check every single time.

    Strong +1 to all of the above!

    Hi Everyone, 

    I hope you all are doing great!!

    In regards to your concern, there's an app in the marketplace titled "User Data". You can simply install this application, and it will show you the requester email along with their requested tickets with status in the ticket view.

    I hope this helps!!

    Just FYI, that app does not work consistently. Just today it on my account, it was showing secondary emails as the sender in the "User Data App" when the email was not sent from the secondary, and didn't reference it at all.

    Thank you for bringing your experience onto this forum! I think you may need to erase your browser cache/cookies and try to verify that ticket again. For me, this application has been operating as expected for several years.

    Would be great to get a feedback on this from Zendesk.

    Zendesk really should strive to make their software as secure as possible and not showing the email address in FROM is a very strange idea, the email address isn't in the way of anything else, there are no privacy concerns or even performance penalties.

    Also interested in a response on this from Zendesk. This has created extra steps for our implementation and support teams.

    This is a major issue. This makes it trivial to trick users into clicking bad links, opening malware/phishing attachments, etc. All an attacker has to do is set their name to something plausible (or something they got from an existing e-mail from us) and unless our employees check View Source for EVERY ticket received, they could easily fall for this attack.

    ZenDesk, are you monitoring these community posts at all? There's another thread just like this one and probably more if I do some digging.

    Don't be shy Zendesk. We all make mistakes, just fix it.

    Hi Benjamin Kirsch, would it be possible to pass the header email and envelope email to the ticket, such as in the UI or the ticket object itself?

    Additionally, being able to choose which to use as the requester's email.

    Currently this can only be compared using the "View original email" feature.

  • Ross Malyon

    Any news zendesk?

  • Seems Logical

    +1 BILLION!

    In addition to the "from" address, also would like to append SPF, DMARC, DKIM status visible without having to go deep sea diving for that info.


    It's just far too easy to target organizations that use Zendesk these days due to a lack of basic security indicators in the UI.
