Understanding how Talk calls become tickets

    Wondering if this can be done (or anyone has a solution to this)

    I have multiple lines

    Scenario:

    When an inbound call is received at a particular line (Zendesk phone number) and the 'call' ticket is created or 'popped' I want that 'popped' ticket to have the correct form associated with that Zendesk line (number) already selected for the agents.

    EG:

    1. Call to +61 3 555 5555
    2. Call accepted by agent
    3. Call ticket 'created' (or 'popped')
    4. Appropriate form is already selected based on the Zendesk line (number) that the call is received at

    From my investigation there is no way to 'id and workflow' an incoming call ticket from the specific incoming line (number). Is that true?

    Would love to know if anyone has a solution. This would help our use case quite a bit.

    Thanks
    Chad

    Hi Chad! Apologies for the delay here.

    To set a form at the time of ticket creation based on the Talk number, we recommend leveraging the 'Comment Text' condition in a trigger. When a Talk ticket is created, the ticket description includes a "Call to: ###" string by default. Use this string in the trigger condition to identify these tickets, then add an Action to the trigger to set the desired form. You'll need to create separate triggers for each unique form you'd like to set based on the Talk number.

    You can find some helpful visuals to configure this trigger workflow in this article: Can I route Talk tickets based on the received number?

    What is the easiest way for me to add a tag to all phone calls (not just voicemails)?

    Hi @... -

    Sorry for the delay here.

    Generally speaking, having a Trigger that looks for the conditions

    Ticket is Created
    Channel is Voice

    Actions

    Add Tag: phone_call

    I'm curious as to your use case here, as you may be able to leverage tools like channel in place of tags (especially when looking at Explore).

    Hope this helps!

    Is there a setting so that agents can see call recordings but customers can not?

    Hi @...

    This toggle should set you straight.
    You can find it under Settings > Talk.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Brandon, 

     

    So if this is unchecked my customers can not see the calls?

    A ticket will still be created that could potentially send a notification to the customer, but the recording itself will not be available to end-users accounts.

    Hi,

    I am trying to adjust our business logic so that the Ticket Form used for ticket creation is chosen based on which Group routing is done in our TALK IVR.

    Today all incoming calls, regardless of which department they are routed to, uses the same Ticket form, which is less than optimal.

    A trigger would look like this:
    Conditions:
    Ticket is Created
    Channel is Phone Call (incoming)
    Call IVR destnation is XX
    Action:
    Form is YY
    Group is ZZ

    For some reason, the Call IVR destination is not an option in triggers. Any other way to achieve this?

     

    Best regards,

    Morten Frisch

    Hi Morten,
     
    Thank you for reaching out to Zendesk Support.
     
    In regards to your concern, the default ticket form would be selected automatically for tickets that were created from Talk. If you wanted to change the following ticket fields that will be shown in the created tickets from Talk, you can create your own ticket form and add your preferred ticket fields in there and select it as the default ticket form.
     
    You can do that by going to the Support page, go to Admin > under Manage, select Ticket forms. From here you can also create the new ticket form and manage which ticket fields should be added, and after that click on the 3 dots and select "Make Default" to add it as your default ticket form.
     

     
    Thank you and have a wonderful day ahead!
     
     
    Kind regards,

    Hello

    Help indicates that

    The name of the person who made the call and the person who answered the call.

    In my case, the Field is empty

     

    Could you please tell me what is the missing parameter or if there is an explanation ?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Administrateur -

    Is it possible that the caller either hung up, abandoned or left voicemail?  This type of call would not have been answered.
