All of my agents receive an email notification for every new ticket. How can I turn off or disable these notifications?
Zendesk Support accounts have default triggers enabled for best practices in a ticketing workflow. Some of these triggers send email notifications to your agents or customers.
To identify the source of a notification email, check the Events view of the ticket: Viewing all events of a ticket.
To deactivate the default trigger for agent notifications
- Go to Admin Center, open the Triggers page.
- Deactivate the trigger Notify all agents of received request. Hover your mouse over the trigger to display the options menu icon on the right side of the trigger () and select Deactivate. The trigger is then moved to inactive triggers.
- (Optional) You can also review and deactivate other agent notification triggers to further reduce emails if appropriate. Two additional triggers to review are: Notify group of assignment and Notify assignee of assignment.
Important: Certain triggers are necessary to send email notifications to your customers. Before you deactivate any default trigger, review the trigger's function in this article: About the default Support triggers
For more information about notification triggers and how they work, see the following: Creating triggers for automatic ticket updates and notifications.
Hi, How could I exclude one agent from this trigger 'Notify all agents of received request'? I did found that there are options to have notifications sent to one agent but that is not a option. Also we would like to exclude Light Agents from that trigger.
You can add a tag under the user profile and use it as a condition to exclude the agent from the trigger. In addition, you can add all your light agents under one organization, add a tag to that organization and use the said tag to exclude all of the members of the org to the trigger.
I hope that helps!
Can you send screenshot or video how to exclude specific users (theirs email) from email notifications once a ticket is created please?
