    Hi there. Our team is running into some issues due to copy of the endflow feedback loop, and we were trying to find a workaround by rigging some triggers to prompt additional language.

    Can triggers interact with this end feedback loop? Alternatively, when a visitor selects options in this feedback loop are these registered as visitor messages (and subsequently can they activate triggers?)

    Hi Jon,

    Could you explain in detail what the configurations are for the problematic triggers? Some screenshots of your trigger settings will help greatly too. 

    Please submit a ticket with the above information to and our team will have a check for you, thanks!

    Hi There, is it possible for a breakdown of what a messaging trigger would look like if we were wanting to route an end user to a specific group based on the "needs selector/options selector"?

    Hi Clik,

    You may refer to this article:, particularly the 'Assigning Groups to messaging conversations' part. It shows how you can collect an information from an end-user and to use it to setup routing rules in a trigger.

    There are so many more triggers available for chat over messaging. Is there a plan to offer the same triggers for messaging? Any work arounds in the meantime?

    Hi Jordan,

    Thank you for reaching out to Zendesk Community! Could you tell us more about your use case and what specific trigger conditions are you looking for/wanting to add to Zendesk Messaging?

  • Jordan Brown

    Hey Destiny,

    The main reason we liked the conditions for chat was that it allowed us to personalize messages based on the IP, page URL etc. A big feature that’s missing at the moment because of the conditions is the proactive greeting as well.

    These are the top 3 conditions we would love to have access to on the messaging channel that are currently available on chat:

    • Still on page – allows for proactive greeting
    • Location of visitor – can allow for custom messages for promotions available in particular cities or regions
    • Page URL – allows for custom greetings

    Many clients have moved over to Intercom chat in the meantime until some of these conditions are available. If these changes are in the roadmap, or you know of any work arounds, please let me know.

    Happy to discuss in further detail if needed. Thanks!
