    Hello! Quick question, up to how many users can be added to an Organisation?

    @Mario, I am fairly certain there is no limit. Some customers have their Organizations representing support levels and they could have hundreds of customers in each. 

    How many do you need?

    I'd like to get some clarification on Organizations. For my purposes, the setup is for a retail setting. We have client companies. Am I correct that I would create an organization per client/ customer company? Then end users (the client employees that are level 1 support) would be setup under an organization.

    Don. Yes that would be typical.

    I have a question about assigning an agent to an organization. I can create a group and assign to an Org and an agent, i.e.

    Agent 1, assigned to Group Company A that is linked to Organization Company A

    This would require me to set up a group for each ORG. Can I do it this way:

    Agent 1 assigned to Group Agent 1. This Group assigned to many Organizations?

     

    The goal is for a ticket to come in for ORG Company A and Agent 1 gets the notice and assignment.

    Hey Don!

    Groups aren't added to Organizations in the way that users would be. You set up your groups to support various organizations by using your triggers and macros to route those tickets to the appropriate group, but you don't need to set up an agent group to match each organization (unless you want to).

    So you set up Agent Group 1, and then set up triggers to assign tickets from Orgs A, B, and C to Group 1 when they come in.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi,

    I have a question about groups and light agents. Is it possible to assign light agents to different groups? Example:

    Light Agent A to Group 1

    Ligth Agent B to Group 1

    Light Agent C to Group 2

    Ligth Agent D to Group 3

     

    We're considering on getting 8 full agents that had most knowledge on which answer needs to be given to the end user, but eventually they need support from other departments (approximately 20) on our company.

    We thought on a possible solution for this cases:

    1) we can create a light agent per department (can it be a group?)

    2) all full agents belong to all groups

    3) the agent chooses On Hold status assigns the ticket to himself and add CC to Light Agent

    4) Then create an automatism that once a light agent adds an internal comment the status of the ticket changes automatically to Pending Status letting the full agents know that they have enough information to answer to the end-user. That would allow us to track the change of status and time spend on each one.

    Are my suppositions right? Or am I not taking in consideration something?

    In a B2B setup, how are you handling gmail.com and outlook.com users?  As more and more organizations go this route, we are finding we have to manually go back and assign users to the proper orgs, and they are not auto assigned to the org via the organization mapping using domain.  We currently have over 10k users and 1100 organizations, and the prevalence of gmail and outlook are becoming unmanageable, yet we can't blacklist those domains either.

    Hey Joan!

    Light agents can definitely be added to groups. Otherwise, I think your workflow looks okay!

    Is it possible for me to have some Organizations have access to create/view/edit tickets while others Organizations can only view community content (receive email-only support)?

    I am using an Organization Field called "Support Level" to define if a customer is receiving free or paid-for Support.  Only those flagged as paid-for would be able to manage tickets online.

    If we decide to go with single sign in, can we assign organizations on our own or will we have to accept what comes from the active directory?

    Hey Jean!

    When setting up SSO, the user organization parameter is optional. So if you aren't setting it with SSO you will have the ability to change it after the user is created in Zendesk.

    Hi, I have created a new group in my Zendesk and trying to report on this group in Gooddata, but it seems the dataset for the attribute "Ticket Group" is not updated so cannot see this new group in Gooddata, anyone know why and can help me out? Need to report on this urgently! Thanks.

    Hi Benjamin!

    There are two things that might be happening here. The first is that there aren't any tickets in that new group, in which case there wouldn't be anything to report on. The second is that Insights hasn't synced since the new group was created. Insights will sync daily if you're on the Professional plan, or hourly if your on Enterprise.

    If neither of those conditions exist and the info still isn't showing up in your reports, let me know and we'll dive a little deeper!
