    If I enable the function but disable the trigger, am I able to use the CSAT placeholders in other triggers without generating a dedicated email? Thank you in advance!

    Hey Elise,

    Excellent question! Yes you can enable CSAT's on your account and just make sure the automation is disabled so the email notification does not get sent out after a ticket has been solved.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Hi ! Great post and thanks for sharing 😄. 

    Actually, I'm using a placeholder to send a CSAT survey on WhatsApp support in status Solve Ticket, but Zendesk offers a native CSAT to WhatsApp or another option ? 

    I try to find anything like Chat Like / dislike

    Hi Richard,

    It sounds like you're using the correct method for sending CSAT surveys via WhatsApp – see Measuring CSAT on Whatsapp and Facebook messenger

    This article is about Zendesk Messaging, which works differently; for more information, see Introducing Zendesk Messaging

    When we can expect the feature will work in other languages as well?  
    We have to disable it as CSAT messages were re-opening tickets.

    Is there a way to limit social messaging CSAT to be sent only once in XX days? Thanks.

    @... Can you explain more about why you want to limit CSAT in this way?

    Hi Scott,

    We regularly communicate with the same requesters via social messaging tickets (Whatsapp). It might get a little annoying for the requester to receive a CSAT survey after each conversation.

    Hi, is it possible to custom/change WHATSAPP CSAT TEXT into others language since currently our customers mostly didn't understand English well?

    Hi Zidane,
    The survey answer and questions are localised into the user’s location data here’s a reference article for that The end user experience. You can check and change the visitor’s language in the information panel from Support Setting and detecting a user's language
    Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    when a customer initiates a chat through Instagram Direct, they will not receive the CSAT until the ticket is closed. But if the ticket is assigned to another group for follow-up via email, then at the end, the customer will receive 2 CSAT questions? 1 On Instagram (trigger) and one via email (automation)?

  • Ariane Frances dela Cruz

    Hi System Admin, 

    When the Trigger for Social Messaging CSAT is fired, the "Request messaging rating" action will automatically change the Satisfaction to "Offered". Since the default CSAT automation for email channel has a condition Satisfaction > Unoffered, the automation will not run twice on the same ticket.

    Hey there!

    The link regarding WhatsApp rating seems to be offline now.

    It doesn't look like Zendesk has enabled WhatsApp buttons, so customers have to reply with text messages. We have a few customers that replied "You can say: GOOD, BAD" as "Good!", and because they just added the "!", Zendesk gets confused and creates a new ticket as shown below (in Portuguese).

    Is there a way to manage this better? Is there a roadmap to implement WhatsApp Buttons?

    Hi Fernando Nery Filho

    Thanks for reaching out! I recommend creating a post in our Product Feedback Community where our Product Managers monitor requests for future developments. In addition, other end users can upvote your post and comment if they've found successful workarounds in the meantime.

    We have enabled a couple of choices the users can select so we can get more information on why users clicked on the CSAT Bad experience. We're seeing a lot of bad experience replies where no comment is added and that does not help us a lot in analyzing the 'why'. 

    I was wondering if we can make these options/choices mandatory for users to select, is that possible? Also, would it be possible to make adding a comment mandatory if one of those options is selected?

    Hi there,

    We're hoping to configure CSAT ratings for Facebook private messages and Twitter DMs.

    Is this setup only compatible with Agent Workspace + Social Messaging (i.e. social channels that are added under Admin Center > Messaging and social > Messaging), or would it work for social channels that are configured the old way (i.e. added under Admin CenterChannels > Messaging and social > Facebook Pages/Twitter accounts?


  • Pablo Payet

    Hi there,

    I am trying to create an automation to send a "thank you" message to customers who have given a good rating. How can I do that?

    I also would like to add a link to trustpilot in the message.

    Many thanks in advance.

  • Jupete Manitas

    Hi Pablo, thanks for writing in! Are you trying to fire the update to your users after the CSAT was received? Because it looks like the closest feature is the trigger. You set a trigger that will fire every time an action is made to the ticket which is a Good rating is applied to it. Please see the screenshot for the sample trigger conditions. 

    Thank you and we hope this information helps!
