    Originally in your post on Dec 2, 2014, you stated that by default, Light Agents do not have access to edit or modify anything in the Help Center and that I would need to edit that role. In the later posts you say that we cannot edit that part of the role. So is the conclusion that there is no way for a light agent to edit help center content?

    Hi Dan! Sorry for the delay. I've edited my initial comment to reflect the correct information on this. You are correct: Light Agents are not able to edit Help Center content.

    As an administrator or account owner, is it possible for me to view my agents' personal macros?

    Hi Charles!

    Personal macros are only visible to the user who created them.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Could this please be updated to include Advisor, Staff and Team Lead which additional user roles available in the current product? -- Scratch this, I found it in the Enterprise Level "custom agent roles"

    Hi Jessie,
    I have many agents who need to take up the support issues, how can I configure or assign individual IDs to each agent so that they all can log-in to our zopim chat simultaneously? ( Of-course, after I purchase a multiple agent zendesk account)

    Hi, my agents are not able to add new end users as they are not seeing any option to add user under New tab.

    Anyone else faced this issue?

    we are at present using the team plan.

    Regards,

    Hello, saurabh,

    I have just created a ticket on your behalf so we can troubleshoot this further :).

    I have the professional version and my agents can not create End Users.  Is that only in Enterprise?

    Hey Ron!

    That capability is actually managed by going to your settings menu, and under People, selecting Roles.

    For each agent role that should be able to create End Users, click Edit and in the People section select the appropriate permissions from the What access does this agent have to end-user profiles? dropdown menu. Then click Update role.

    Hi! I am using the universal signature under the agents tab. I have a few different agents, but I want to be able to use the universal form. How can I make sure that agents with different roles have different signatures without having to do every agent manually from their profile?

    Hey Ruth!

    The common signature can't be broken down by agent role or group, so if there's specific information that certain agents should have in their signature it would have to be added to their personal signature.

    You can use both the universal and personal signatures at the same time; you can find details here: Adding an agent signature to ticket email notifications.

    This allows you to add the stuff everyone should have in the settings for the common signature, and then your agents can go in and add the more specific stuff on their own. I'd suggest an email with specific text, already formatted, that they can just copy/paste.

    Hope that helps!
