    Hello,

    I looked for the whole day, but i couldn't figure out how to allow the End-users to edit their complete profile.

    They can well change their name, image, telephone and e-mail (even their password), but nothing more. Shouldn't they be able to edit the "details" or the "notes" fields ?

    Beside, i created a Custom User field. Couldn't it be editable also by the end-users themselves ?

    The option "Allow users to view and edit their profile data" is well checked in the parameters.

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Hi Xavier,

    The built in functionality of the Help Center does not allow for any more fields outside of the 4 you mentioned to be edited by the end-user. This includes custom fields and the two fields you mentioned (details and notes).

    If you are looking to make this available to your end-user you may be able to develop something using our API. If you take a look at our Developer Portal, https://developer.zendesk.com/, you will find Zendesk's API, Apps, and SDK documentation.

    Off the top of my head, you could create a web form to display the fields you'd like to display and allow users to edit those fields. But like I said, this is not built in functionality and what you are seeing right now with regards to how the Help Center is functioning is all that is available "out-of-the-box."

    If you were to begin your Community with only one topic, is there a way to default the Community page to "Show All Posts" instead of "Show topics"?

    Hi,

    Can an 'End-User' export a report from their account of the tickets that have raised?  I think this was possible in the old version.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi, 

    we don't have comments enabled in our help center as we don't want to create another channel for question and answers so following articles to get notified of comments made is not relevant for us.

    what is relevant however is for users following an article to be notified of changes made to it but it seems that they aren't. how can I give our end-users the option to be able to do that?

    thanks!

    not only end users but article owners should be aware if changes are made to their article by others ...

    I'm doing some Category/Section restructuring and cleanup of older articles. Is there a way to skip the notification to subscribed users when I make any changes?

    Hi Ingrid, I believe the notifications are only for when new articles are created in sections users follow or when comments are added. I don’t believe there are any notifications when articles are moved around or deleted. And not sure that there are notifications when sections are moved around or deleted either. But perhaps I’m wrong.

    Also I’m not sure if this is the right space to ask questions as mine hasn’t been answered since I posted it in May.

    Thanks for the tip, Catherine. I'm new to Zendesk (a little over a month). I'll reach out to support.

    In case anyone's interested, here's what I learned:

    • Users are notified when somebody adds an article to a section, adds a comment to an article or a post, or adds a post to a topic.
    • Only end-users can follow or unfollow.
    • There's currently no way to view content that have subscriptions, so I +1'd the “Admin visibility of article/category follows” feature request.

    Asking again as Sherri did above, is this possible? 

    If you were to begin your Community with only one topic, is there a way to default the Community page to "Show All Posts" instead of "Show topics"?  

    Thanks.

    How can I reactivate or reinstall the application? There seems to be some restriction to reinstall.

    Just wondering if we will ever be able to follow categories and receive notifications when articles are updated?

    +1 for email notification when articles in a section I'm following are changed.
