    Sell roles and actions permissions

    Permission enhancements for roles and actions in Zendesk Sell help you to manage your users:

    1. Actions permissions provide a broader range of settings to allow you more control and security around who can do what with your data. Admins can restrict a user from modifying, creating, deleting, or changing the owner of leads, contacts, and deals.
    2. A role determines what users can do with lead, contact, or deal in Sell. You can create custom roles, where you specify how users assigned this role can view, create, and manage their own, and other users' records in Sell.

    Sell object distribution

    Object distribution in Zendesk Sell provides a "round robin" capability for allocating leads, contacts, and deals. This feature allows you to create and use multiple distribution pools for assigning leads, contacts, and deals to people within your organization.

    Hi everyone, we've just added a new EAP for Explore.

    Improved large query performance

    This EAP increases the amount of rows you can export from a query to 500,000 rows. Additionally, when you reach the limits of a visualization (like a bar chart), Explore automatically displays it as a table instead to make sure you can view up to 50,000 rows in Query builder.

    We have a new early access opportunity for Explore!

    Aggregation level functions

    This update gives you more control over the level of aggregation for your Explore metrics. Currently, when you add a metric and multiple attributes to a query, the metric is sliced by all of the attributes. With these new functions, you’ll be able to specify exactly which attributes will slice your metrics. If you used Insights, you’ll recognize this as similar functionality to the BY keyword.

    New EAP for Guide:

    Federated Help Center search

    Until now, when you searched a Guide Help Center, the content that you could find to help you resolve your issue was limited to Guide Articles and Gather community posts. However many Zendesk customers have great self service content on websites, blogs, other Knowledge bases, learning management systems, and on other community platforms. 

    The Guide Federated Help Center search EAP enables you to surface all that great content hosted outside Guide and Gather in your Help Center search results.

    Another EAP for Guide. This one is a for a feature that has been much-requested by customers!

    Content blocks

    We know that our customers want a better way to create, manage, and update content that lives across multiple articles or help centers. We are addressing this need by introducing content blocks, a Guide Enterprise feature that allows you to do just that.

    With this functionality, you’ll be able to capture things like common troubleshooting steps, rules and regulations, disclaimers, etc. as a content block, and then insert into multiple articles and across multiple help centers.

    The Shopify integration EAP includes some new features: 

    • Refunds and cancellations: Agents can now action a Shopify order refund or cancellation through the Support sidebar app without leaving the context of their ticket. This new feature includes both full and partial refunds for orders that have been fulfilled, and full cancellations for orders that haven't been dispatched.
    • Shopify events and profiles for Sunshine: Shopify events and profiles can be imported into Sunshine and then displayed in customer context when viewing a Zendesk Support ticket. This provides a single view of information between Zendesk and Shopify. Customer context can be used, for example, to help you understand customer behavior, look at sales trends, and identify improvements to your business.
