    Hi Andy!

    There's no in-product feature that will allow this, but you can export the information using the API. You can find more information about that here:

    Hope that helps!

    I think ot woould be great if you could assign more than 1 agent group to a Macro. This would minimize the amount of Macros which would make it easier also to maintain all Macros.

    Good news @Emelie -- we're planning to roll that out next week. Here's the announcement!

    HI Zendesk Product team!

    I would like to request the feature enhancement of Agents who's role permits them to created/edit group macros be extended the permission to reorder their groups' macros as well.  

    Right now we have groups that regularly revamp their macros, and using best practices, retire the old version and create a net-new macro putting this macro 'at the bottom" and I have the large and tedious job, as the one admin, of reordering these manually (very time consuming and annoying when you have many macros due to the pagination) when it would be simple for these group managers to incrementally keep things in the proper order if only they had access to do so.

    Thank you for the consideration.

    Over time, as macros are added you can start to get a bloated list of automated responses. The ability to see how frequently the macros were used in the last 7 days is great but what about in the last month? Six months? What about being able to deactivate any macros that weren't used in a particular period? 

    I would love to see the ability to pull reports on which mactos are used most frequently within a time as a way of sreamlining support and working away from bloated helpdesks.  Thanks!

    Amanda & Siobhan - Thanks for the feedback! The best place for this sort of input is in the Product Feedback forum, as the Product Managers check there regularly. That being said, I see Kristen has weighed in on this thread, so hopefully she'll see this as well. 

    Have a great day!

    I am writing to ask if it is possible to pull up a list of every macro we have that has a specific Tag in it. I am not interested in a report showing all the tickets a tag is in but the macro that applies it. Please let me know if you need any other info. Thank you.

    Hey Tom!

    If you're on the Enterprise plan you'll have access to our Business Rules Analysis feature. Otherwise, you should be able to pull that info out of your Zendesk using the API.

    There is no way Administrators can view agent macros. As a result agents can create their own verbiage for responses which I see as problematic as some agents may not convey the same information. It would be great to either allow Admin to review macros or limit whether an agent has the ability to create a macro. As admin I have to read each ticket to ensure the macros represent the information the company wants disseminated.

    Just a thought.....
