    Hi Rian,

    Will the ability to send out more than one NPS Survey at a time change any time soon? We would love to send out multiple campaigns tied to each of our brands.

    Hi Zendesk,

    I want to make sure your NPS survey capabilities match my needs. I want to send all current customers an NPS survey right off the bat, first of all. Thereafter, every 90 days. Additionally, I would like to survey each new user 14 days after they purchase our product, and thereafter every 90 days. What is the most seamless way I can do this continuously as new users come on?

    @Amann,

    We don't have any methods to automate the sending of NPS surveys, so if you're wanting to send those out every 90 days and 14 days after they purchase your product, those functions will need to be tracked and applied by you manually. You can use customer lists to see and group all users, or those who have been added to the account within a set time frame, but there isn't anything inherently available to see how long since they make a purchase with your product. You could add a tag to the customers once they buy the product and sort them into a customer list using that tag, but you'd need to remove the tag manually after the 14 day period is up.

    @David, I can't provide a timeline, but multiple parallel NPS surveys is in our plans for NPS. One thing to highlight is that if you're using our multibrand feature set, we probably won't initially release with full integration into brands, since the brand attribute only exists on tickets right now, not users, and you would not be able to segment your users by a brand.

    @Amann, to add to Justin's response, we do have an NPS API that you could use to automate NPS surveys through our system if you're able to integrate your system with our API. See our developer docs at https://developer.zendesk.com/rest_api/docs/nps-api/introduction for more information.

    This survey is incredibly intuitive and provides great results. One enhancement that would be great is to have the Follow-up content based on what ranking the customer gave.

    i.e. if a customer clicks 10 he/she sees "Why do you love us"

    i.e. if a customer clicks 1 he/she sees "Why do you hate us"

    Could this be done sometime in the future/ should I post this somewhere else?

    Hi Alex, we've received a few requests similar to this, but we would want to then start to think about how we provide more customizability for our surveys overall.

    For this particular use case, could you instead ask "Can you provide a reason why you gave us that rating?" which covers both use cases?

    Steven,

    That's a good point! Nevertheless, it is still nice for the customers to get a more specific question rather than the generic questions. But yes, your question could be a nice workaround!

    Thanks!

    Also one more question. The article below says that you can only send out an NPS survey to an individual every six months, but this newer article it says 90 days. I just want to confirm it is 90 days so I can plan for future campaigns.

    Thanks!!

    Alex, we recommend six months for a canonical NPS survey as a best practice, but the product does offer more flexibility than this. We limit this in the system to every 90 days right now.

    Hi 

    I downloaded the template for the custom list and filled in my names and emails as needed.

    It keeps telling me my list is not properly formatted??

    i've tried as a csv and a xslx

    Hi Steven,

    A while back you mentioned multiple parallel NPS surveys as a feature you were pursuing, what is the status on this?

    We operate multiple brands and being able to time NPS surveys serially seems to be the best way to go about it for comparable purposes, but it doesn't seem possible at the moment.

    I was able to generate a daily NPS report status and receive it daily for the on-going survey.

    On the next step in the automation, I would like to receive immediately an email when a NPS value is less than 9. (ideally, the value should be a trigger/parameter that we can select in a drop down)

    Can you let us know how to set this up?

    Thank you,

    Jacob: we don't have plans to add multiple parallel NPS surveys to the existing NPS feature set within the Support product. After evaluating adoption of NPS, and also the targeted nature by which many of our customers would like to deliver their NPS surveys, we believe our Connect product, which is currently in early access, is the right home for NPS moving forward. We don't yet have a timeline for when this will happen.

    Dominique: We don't have any trigger-based capability that lets you notify yourself of when an NPS survey with score < 9 is detected.

    Is the ability to integrate the NPS survey results into Salesforce in the roadmap? 

    It's nice to have NPS in Zendesk, however, it provides so much more value when it is combined with other user data.

  • Steven Yan

    Hi Will, we don't support data sync from Zendesk back to Salesforce natively, though this could be done via our API.

    We are also working on our new analytics platform, Explore, which will allow you to combine Zendesk data (including NPS results) with other external data sources, such as Salesforce.

    I see that Placeholders can be used in some areas of the survey but not in the Subject line. Is that correct? If so, is this something Zendesk is looking into for the future?

    0
  • Steven Yan

    Hi Alex, that's correct, the placeholders are only supported in the survey follow-up page and not in the subject. Moving forward, I agree this should be supported in the survey subject as well, but I can't offer a timeline for when this will be implemented.

    Is there a way to send the survey to customers who haven't responded rather than simply a reminder and them having to find the previous survey?

    0
  • Steven Yan

    Hi Angel, there's no way to currently do this in the product. As I responded to on this community post, we think it's a good idea but don't have any plans to make additional enhancements to NPS at this time.

    Hi I was trying to find an answer for this: I sent an NPS by mistake to a list I imported as a CSV and closed it less than a minute after. Is there a way to recover from that to reuse the customer list? I keep getting the error that the users are not allowed to be sent the NPS again. The system is a little clunky. I would have loved to have a way to rename the campaign before taking this action. I didn't know this was going to be the result.

    Sorry for the delayed response here! I see that you have a ticket open about this with our Support Team, so we'll take care of you there. Feel free to come back and share the resolution with us when everything's all sorted out!

    Hi all!

    We are stoked to inform you that the first version of our Loyalty Radar app is out and available for installation in your Zendesk as a private app. You can download it from this article. Before you proceed to the installation, we recommend to take a look at a couple of other articles that we created to guide you through the installation and setup processes.

    Hello,

    When uploading a CSV to define recipients, can I include extra fields (external_id, custom_fields.<field_key>, etc.) and have these user fields imported correctly?

    Or, should I import these users first through the bulk import user tool and then create the NPS recipient list?

    Thanks!

  • Jessie - Community Manager

    Hi James!

    User creation/update is a separate function from creating an NPS recipient list, so you'll want to do a bulk user import first and then create the list.

    It says you can only send 10,000 at a time, we have 24,000 customers. How do we know who has received the invites and who has not without having to check through all the names?!

    "End-users do not have to be logged in to rate their tickets"

    Our users has to be loged in to leave a rating, and therefore we are not getting a lot of them.
    The same login page that are used in the HC are the one that´s showing.
    How do I change this, what setting is it?

    Hi Annika,

    Your quote appear to be from this article about using Customer Satisfaction (CSAT),it sounds like that's what you're interested in? CSAT surveys are used to measure the customer satisfaction in relation to a ticket the reviewer has had with you.

    CSAT surveys are usually sent out by email after a ticket has been solved, and there should be no requirement to be logged in to the HC in order to answer them.

    You should be able to test this by opening one of the rating links in a private/incognito window (where you will not be logged in):

    This article, however, is about NPS surveys, so if I've misunderstood you completely I'm sorry. I don't believe the NPS survey should require a login either, could you show by screenshot what you're seeing?

    Hope that helps you out!

    Oh, Im so sorry I hade both of the articles up in tabs. Yes, it's the CSAT that are sent after solved tickets. I think it can have to do with the device the customer is using. It works in incognito for me but not for my other agents.  I have reacted on how few responses we´ve been geting. 

    Here comes screenshoots from the mail and the page that comes up after pressing the link .
    I could see the yellow branding on top for a second or two, showing that it links to the mobile view of our zendesk, so it's like its redercting directly to our zendeskdomain.
