Enabling anyone to submit tickets

    Thanks again for your help on this @.... My ticket was FINALLY escalated and the tech immediately realized that I had "allow end users to RESET passwords" disabled. This was part of our former SSO strategy and had never been reenabled.

    Just wanted to mention it here in case it helps someone else....it is a vital piece of the "did you email us? get a password" process that doesn't seem to be well documented. I never found it in all of my searches for a solution...but I was not using the terminology of a "reset" because I was trying to just "allow" passwords to be used in the first place...I didn't realize the problem would be connected to the password reset process.

    Happy New Year :)

    Hi Zendesk - 

    Can we please have the understanding of how to do the below? 

    1. A user(our client)  does some action in our website. (e.g: filling a form) and we have their email address in our database. Note that user does not send any email to anybody. He/she just clicks on a button or fills a form.

    2. Our backend calls Zendesk API

    3. Zendesk should create a ticket , in a way that it seems our client has created this ticket (the ticket should be ready to be replied to the email of our client)


    Is this possible? Thank you

    Hi Alex, 

    Thanks for writing! It seems you want the submitter or requester from your form to be the ticket requester when a ticket is created in your Zendesk. This is possible and you may want to create a custom form so that the requester will automatically be the email address of the user who submitted a request. You may check this guide - Building a custom ticket form with the Zendesk API . Thank you!

    We've currently got this set up as "Anybody can submit tickets, no registration required" and we've noticed recently that tickets submitted via this route don't appear to be receiving the CSAT survey, even though an email is provided. Is this by design, or a configuration error on our end? Thank you!

    Hi Helen,
    A CSAT survey will be sent to the customer when the ticket meets all the conditions in the CSAT automation - the default CSAT automation is named Request customer satisfaction rating (System Automation). We recommend checking the conditions set in your CSAT automation to make sure CSAT will be offered to your customers.

    Hi Zendesk ,

    can you please explain this... 

    By allowing anybody to submit a ticket, you're opening Zendesk Support to anyone who wants to ask a question or report a problem.

    If you want to restrict who can submit tickets, turn this option off. You will need to add users yourself.

    Note that the Web Widget feature cannot be used if this option is turned off.

    Why can the web widget NOT be used if I turn this off? This seems very counterproductive; the bot is hugely important to communicate to have it tied to this control. Can you please explain?

    Hi Whitney Whitmoore!

    Could you send us the link where you are quoting this? That way we can double-check the context of that statement. Because the widget can still load even without filling out a ticket form & the bot can still operate if your users are not signed in to your Help Center (as long as your Help Center is open to the public).

    Hi Zendesk,
    You mentioned above 
    "Even though you don't require users to register, your users still have the option of registering and creating a login to use your help center, unless you modify your help center to hide the Sign Up and Login pages."

    How can I hide the sign up / login pages ?

    Hi Yasmin, welcome to the community!
    Can I ask what you end goal is? How are you wanting your users to get support and interact with your help center?
  • Yasmin Elmahdi

    I want them to view the help center without logging in to Zendesk

    Hey Yasmin,

    I would recommend taking a look at the following article: How can I completely hide the sign up button from my Help Center?
    I hope this points you in the right direction!
