    Quick question:

    Is there any way, by hook or by crook, to add more than 12 general views on the left side pannel? Perhaps a 3rd party tool on the marketplace or any other way we might've overlooked that doesn't involve personal views?

    Cheers!

    Hey Adetona!

    The max number of shared views you can display in the sidebar is 12, and personal views is 8, and there isn't a way to change that at the moment. 

    You're definitely not the only one who feels there's a need for this functionality; if you'd like, you can add your vote and detailed use case to this post in our Product Feedback forum: Show more views making the view pane scrollable.

    I'd encourage you to describe the problem you feel this functionality would solve. Fully understanding the problem helps our Product Managers figure out the way to solve it.

    Hey Jessie!

    Thanks for the reply. Ideed, that was my second stop, right after this thread but not before doing some digging. When you mention that I should try to describe our usecase in full, should I do it via this channel or in the other thread?

    Thanks and have a good day!

    Hey Adetona! Sorry for the delay. :)

    I'd recommend you put it in the other thread. That's our Product Feedback forum, and the best way to make sure our PMs see it. :)

    So I had starter package that was $1 per user per month.

    Then I upgraded to Essentials and now I have lost ability to edit views?

    What king of business is that?

    I never heard of anyone getting less when paying more. It never crossed my mind this could happen.

    Hi Denis - 

    It seems there's some confusion here. The move from Starter to Essential is not an upgrade; Starter was the old version of our most basic plan. Your account was grandfathered in when our pricing and plans changed. Essential is the new version of our most basic plan. 

    You should have received a warning on your billing page that indicated which functionality would be lost by moving from a legacy plan to a current plan. 

    Moving from Starter to Essential gives you the ability to have more than three agents on your account, but you do lose several features as a result of the change. I'm sorry that this information wasn't more clearly communicated when you chose to change plans.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Our customers are asking for a way to export a list of all the tickets they have (or portion thereof).  Is there a way to do this?

    Hi Mary!

    There isn't any in-built functionality that allows users to do this. But if you have an active Help Center they can log in there to see their own tickets and the tickets from their Organization, provided your permissions are set so that they can view them.

    Hi Jessie,

    I know from customer and Agent feedback, the ability to export from various reports in ZD is very helpful so data can be masaged as needed.  I hope ZD will consider adding this to UIs in the future.  Thank you.

    Hi,

    Is there currently a way that an end-user can sort their view?  We have had several complaints because it seems that the tickets in the view are in no particular order.  Our end-users look at the views to find tickets they may have already submitted and are looking for the solution from out agent in a previous ticket.  We are trying to encourage our customers to use this feature and is hard to get them to look at previous tickets when there is no order to how they appear.

    From what I can find, it appears that an End-User is not able to sort their views.  Please let me know if I am incorrect.

    Thanks,

    Lara Hines

    Hi Lara!

    Out of the box, in the My Activities area of the Help Center your end-users can filter their tickets by Status, and re-order them according to the most recent activity:

    Is there something else that they're looking for?

    Similar to Mary's question from a year ago. Is there a way to Export all tickets and get the "Description" field details out? It's a system field. I'd call it the body of the ticket. 

    Wanting to do some more advanced reporting and I'm wondering if there's a method of getting that info out somehow.

    Thanks

    Hey Dan,

    You have a couple of options available for exporting your ticket data as mentioned in the following article: Ticket Export Options

    If you're on the Professional or Enterprise plan, the easiest option would be Exporting data to a JSON, CSV, or XML file (Professional and Enterprise)

    Hope this helps!

    I attempted to download the full XML file and it's a really large file approximately 2 Gig in size and it won't open - it keeps crashing on open attempt.

    Is there a particular program to open it with or is there a way to get a portion of the file? I think I'm getting back to 2011 with the full and don't really need back that far. I'd be happy with 12-24 mths.

    I've tried Word, Notepad and Excel. Ideally we've be able to open it or get it to a CSV file.

    Hoping to get a response on my follow up question. I'm stuck otherwise. Thanks!

    Hey Dan,

    It looks like we missed your previous response so I do apologize for that. You should be able to export to a JSON file which will actually allow for you to select a date range. Screenshot below:

    Additionally, you may be able to find an XML to CSV converter online that may also help with getting the information in the format you're looking for.

    Let me know if you continue to experience issues on your end.

    I wasn't able to probe into the product request about having more than 12 views show at once in the left panel. What is the status on this? Did it ever get implemented? If not, is it on the near term roadmap?

    Hi AJ, 

    We have not increased the number of views that can be included on the left-hand panel, and it is not on the roadmap for this quarter. There are some significant issues with increasing the number of views for all users, so the team is considering different ways to solve for the challenges that the limited number presents.

    This is a long-standing feature request and would be very helpful.  I would be nice to have three separate sections/tabs for Global Views, Team Views, and Your Views.  Or, as on the Views Administration page, there could be a filter for each type.  As a manager, I would like to create a Team View and ensure that it's easily accessible for all of my team members.  But since there is a limit of only 12 views on the left-hand navigation menu, the "global" views occupy all 12 slots, so there are none left for my team's Team Views.

    Interestingly, the Zendesk mobile app does a great job of allowing users to customize which views are visible. You can simply check or uncheck which views you want shown using the Edit Views feature.

    Is there a private beta ongoing where we could provide feedback to your product team?
