I am assuming moving to Agent Workspace will impact all subdomains being used under the main domain account in Zendesk?
If your account has multiple subdomains, review these guidelines for each subdomain you support: Self assessment questions
If you answered Yes to any of these questions, contact your account representative or Zendesk Customer Support to help you further evaluate your account and provide assistance with the upgrade. If all your answers were No, you should be a good candidate to upgrade. See Migrating to the Zendesk Agent Workspace.
You just have to enable email forwarding in the Agent's interface for this to work. Please refer to Enabling the forwarding option for agents in Zendesk Support.
Feel free to contact support directly if you encounter any issues.
Is this upgrade required? Will it be pushed automatically in the future to all sites eventually? Trying to think ahead/plan. TIA!
Please note that we will continue with this change in the future, at which point your account will be included, but that date is yet to be determined. We highly encourage you to try Agent Workspace as early as you can to get used to it and take advantage of the features it offers.
I hope this answer your question. Thanks!
This is becoming mandatory at the beginning of the year
As Gabriel said, we will continue with this change in the future, but the date for converting all accounts is yet to be determined.
Unless the e-mail I just got is specific to only our account, it appears that this will be mandatory starting in June, 2023.
The e-mail I received today is literally the first notice I've received about this mandatory and significant change as an admin. 90 days isn't much time to build a suite to completely re-train all of our employees. Looking through my email, one user in my organization forwarded me an email about Agent Workspace in January, 2022.
If you have questions or concerns about migrating your account, contact Zendesk Customer Support.
Can you share the "Subject" of the email? I have not received such an email for our account.
Diane Bilo, today's subject was "Important update: Zendesk is upgrading your support experience"
The subject of the email in January, 2022 sent to my colleague was "Reminder: Activate your Agent Workspace today"
