Congratulations, you have now set up the integration between the Zendesk Sell app and Zendesk Support.
- Under Access to Sell information in Support, specify who can access leads, contacts, and deals in Support. Choose from:
- Only Sell users have access - this means that only Support agents who have access to Sell will see Sell information in Support. Specifically, they can only see Sell data in Support that they have access to in Sell.
- All agents have access - this means all Support agents (regardless of whether they have access to Sell), will see the data for Sell leads, contacts, and deals in the Sell app in Support.
To configure how Agents create leads
- In Assign Status, you can set the status of the lead that is assigned to a lead through the Sell app in Support. You can make changes to the default statuses under the Lead Status tab.
- In Assign Source, if you have lead sources set up for your account, you can select the lead source that is set when you create a lead from a Support ticket. You can also create a new lead source by entering the source name into input field of the dropdown menu.
- In Assign Owner, you can select the Sell users, or distribution
pools (if available). Agents can choose these in the Sell app while
Note: If only one owner (a Sell user or distribution) is selected in the Assign Owner field, then you won't see a dropdown menu here. Instead, leads will be automatically assigned to the owner selected in Sell settings.
You can allocate a lead to any owner in your organization. You can also specify multiple owners, distributions, or a combination of both. During lead creation agent are asked to choose who the lead should be assigned to.Note: If you have several sales teams, you want to ensure leads are assigned to the right people so the reps can act on them immediately. You also want to avoid time-consuming triage. To do this, create several lead distributions with names that are easy to understand by your Support agents, then assign people to those distributions and specify those distributions as possible lead owners in the integration settings.
If you want agents to have full control over assigning leads in the Support app, select the Allow agents to assign any owner check box. This means that in the app, the agent will have a list of all available Sell users and distributions that they can assign the lead to.
- If you leave the Owner field empty, then the lead
ownership will rely on how you’ve configured the Support agents
to access Sell data until the checkbox Allow agents to assign
any owner is selected, for example:
If you selected Only Sell users have access, the lead will be assigned to the user who created the lead.
If you selected All agents have access, the lead will be assigned to the topmost manager, (the person name displayed in the settings).
