Zendesk Chat triggers conditions and actions reference

    Is there a way to show/print the session ID of the current chat session using a placeholder? 

  • Brett Bowser

    Hey BH,

    I double checked and it doesn't look like there's an available placeholder for session ID at this time.

    Let us know if you have any other questions!

  • Nathan Purcell

    @... does the visitor page url include the domain? 

  • Jess Bertubin

    Currently the visitor name placeholder pulls in full name. Is it possible to have a placeholder that breaks out the visitor's name into first name and last name? 

  • Matt

    Hey @...
    The visitor page url includes the full URL of the visitor. 
    For example https://subdomain.zendesk.com/hc/en-us

    Hey @...
    That is a good question! Since the visitor only enters a name (not a first and last name) when starting a chat, we currently only have a placeholder to reference the full name that the visitor entered. 

    Let us know if you have any further questions!

    I miss an email notification as a trigger action to any person mail address (e.g. alert if chat requester waits too long) or similar.

    Hi Jürgen,
    Are you pertaining to chat triggers sending email notifications to the chat requesters? If that's the case, this feature is not supported on chat triggers.
    If I misunderstood your concern, feel free to respond and I'll look into it for you.

    Hello Dane, thank you for an answer. Unfortunately this does not solve the problem. I am searching for a solution to inform (anyhow: mail, ticket, alarm, ...) on basis of an event by a trigger action. Background: No automatic creation of a support ticket by a chat available. Regards, Jürgen

    Is there a way to reset/remove the previous triggered comment in the chat widget?

    Our scenario is that we have multiple pages for Ready to Ship items. We want a trigger to pop-up the chat widget with a message saying 'These items are ready to ship, Chat with us now'.

    Problem is, we have multiple Ready to Ship pages and each page has a trigger (only fires once per visitor) saying the same thing.

    So the customer experience is that the widget pops-up with the previous trigger message in view - looks kind of silly.

    Was wondering if there is a way to 'reset' the chat widget window to blank (no history)?

    See example screenshot:

    Hi Chad Susa

    I am afraid it is not possible yet to clear/reset the chat widget but maybe you can use tags in the conditions and actions of your triggers so that they won't fire on chats where another trigger of the same nature already fired?

    in the conditions I don't find the country code, what must be done to enable it?

  • Shalaka Walambe


    I was wondering if it's possible to set a trigger action based on a page event if the URL remains the same.

    E.g. Show proactive trigger if customer encounters errors at checkout due to incorrect phone number format entered.

    Hi Gianpaolo Valle,

    The option should be on the top part of the condition drop down.

    Hi Shalaka Walambe,

    As it turns out, the actual widget have no access/visibility on such events. Therefore such conditions/actions is not possible.
