Creating groups

    Hi Emily - Check out the Assignment Control App.  It won't do everything you are wanting but it will hide groups from other groups.  I use it and it works very well.

    Is it possible to gather the id of the current user via the customized theme?

    I'm trying to build a user dependent customized theme.

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Hey Thom,

    You can look into our Help Center Templating API for User Object on this link The doc collection contains a basic introduction and high level instructions on how you can extract the ids.

    Is there a way to create a Group of End Users? Essentially, we're trying to create a trigger to go to a set of higher up client contacts for new Urgent priority tickets that come through from that same client.

    Hi @...!

    You can't use groups to segment end-users, however you can create custom user fields and use that as the basis for the triggers. There's a similar workflow outlined in this article with organization fields.

  • Adam Prince

    HI @...,

    Thanks for that quick reply! To be clear, this workflow would be for when new tickets comes in from a specific Organization, we'd like a trigger to send a notification to OTHERS at that same Organization, not necessarily the people submitting the ticket. Is that doable following steps on that article?


  • Hiedi Domingo

    Hi @...

    Absolutely! Creating a custom user field will definitely work on your target workflow. Once the end-users have the proper user field in their profile. You can use custom user fields in Trigger as a condition. Then in trigger action, you can email the Group that you want to be notified of and increase the ticket priority to Urgent.

    I hope this helps!

    Why don't we have sub groups which will help us manage to restrict agents to see other groups' tickets?

    Is there a way to do this?

    Hi Erkin,

    As of the moment, there is no option to create subgroups in Support. We understand your need for this functionality so I am marking your comment as Product Feedback. We truly value customer feedback and your voice and votes in the product feedback topics in the community help influence future Zendesk functionality.

    Hi Team

    Is there a way to bulk upload Groups into Support ? We only have the option to add them individually.

    Hi Nikita,
    Thanks for reaching out to Zendesk! You cannot set an agent's group via CSV bulk import. There are only two options available for updating a users group:
    • One would be to manually set the agent's group via the agent interface.
    • The other one would be to use our group memberships API endpoint, although this would involve a bit of code work on your part.
    Best regards,
