    Hi Jo - Explore Lite refreshes daily and Explore Pro refreshes hourly.

    I have invested a lot of time in Gooddata over time and I am currently about to restructure all the KPI calculations and dashboards for my teams. Explore seems promising. So... Should I continue to invest time in Gooddata or move immediately to Explore? What about all the work done with Gooddata? Will I have to rebuild every metric, chart and list I have currently? Above all, will I be able to do with Explore everything I do in Gooddata?

    Hi Carlos!

    Thanks for the questions. I'll do my best to explain. Zendesk is working on slowly sunsetting our access to Gooddata. Currently no new users to the Zendesk platform have any Gooddata licenses applied to them. Explore is going to be the standard going forward. 

    Unfortunately, the reports you have in Gooddata are not something that can be transferred to Explore, or vice versa. I do apologize for any inconvenience, I know it can be frustrating to duplicate work. 

    Lastly, Explore and Gooddata do mostly the same things, but there are some differences. You can read about those on our help center here. There may not be perfect parity, even in the future. But we're trying to make Explore as robust and useful as we can. 

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Rob, at our office we started to work with "Explore" recently.  And I have a question regarding the concept of "No replies" within "Tickets by first reply time brackets". I would like to ask what tickets are included as not replied - is it the ones deleted manually, in addition to the ones considered Spam by the system? Are also included the ones were the user help himself thanks to the Answer bot articles suggested? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Gemma, as I wasn't immediately sure of the answer to your questions, I've created a ticket. Someone should be in touch soon to help you get the answers you need. I'll then update the docs accordingly. Thanks!

    I find explore to be really cumbersome. Are there any good ZD apps that help with reporting?

    Hi, We have Zendesk Support Team.

    According to the matrix at the top of tis article Explore is available for the "Team" edition. But every time I try and add the product it is requesting that I move to the "Profession" edition. Why is it request this?

    Hi Warren,

    Thanks for reaching out! Zendesk Explore function is available to the latest Zendesk Suite Team plan and up and not to your current plan Support Team plan. You may need to upgrade your plan to either a Zendesk Suite Team plan or a Support Professional plan in order to have access to Zendesk Explore. For more information, you can check this article: About the Zendesk Explore plan types

    Kind regards,

    Zendesk Team,

    Are there any plans to allow for Administrative type queries to be built? For context, I am the Account Owner and Administrator for my company's Zendesk instance. At times, I would like to be able to perform audits on users, like the Groups they're associated with, Macro usage details, etc. I know I can currently run these types of queries using JSON, but it would be nice if there was a way to natively run some of these items.
