Also don't miss:
- The rollout for the final phase of Support settings in Admin Center has started. In this final phase, the settings pages will be fully migrated to Admin Center. They will no longer appear in Support. The rollout should be complete on March 3, 2022. See About Support settings in Admin Center.
- The new Zendesk composer experience is now available for AnyChannel integrations that use the Zendesk Channel Framework. This includes Instagramer, Botmaker, Textline, and others. The new experience enables agents to use a combination of rich content editing and markdown commands in ticket conversations. You don't have to choose between composers. See Formatting options for agents.
Agent Workspace migration rules for Support-only accounts have been relaxed to allow self-service migration for accounts with 100-500 agents. See Evaluating your account for migration.
- External content sources (such as blogs, websites, or wikis) can be included in the search in Knowledge. Search filters are also updated in Knowledge to help so agents find the right external content source among other search results. This feature is available on Enterprise plans where Federated Search is configured. See Setting up federated search and Configuring Knowledge in the context panel.
- A new prebuilt Agent Concurrency dashboard and dataset help you understand how many chats your agents are engaged in at the same time. The dashboard shows chat concurrency by hour and day, as well as a list of agents with the most concurrent chats. The dataset enables you to build your own custom reports on chat concurrency. See Analyzing your Chat activity and Metrics and attributes for Zendesk Chat.
- Sales reps and managers can use subscriptions to better forecast their sales pipeline with more insight into the monthly recurring revenue (MRR) of contacts. Using MRR smart list fields and the subscription widget on a contact's page, sales reps can define and track the history of a contact's MRR, see their current MRR, and see the subscription's start and end dates. This makes it easier for reps to know when to work on renewals and expansions and enables them to log upcoming subscriptions with a description. See About subscriptions in Sell and Adding and managing subscriptions in Sell.
- The new Zendesk integration for Microsoft Teams brings your communication and support solutions together to enable employees to work wherever they’re most productive. You can create, update, and view support tickets directly within Microsoft Teams. You can also set up ticket notifications and provide self-service with Answer Bot inside the app. See Announcing the new Microsoft Teams integration and learn more on the Zendesk app for Microsoft Teams page.
- You can resize the ticket properties panel in the Zendesk Agent Workspace to give you a better view of ticket fields. Changing the width of this panel is particularly useful if you’re working on tickets with a lot of fields.
- Side conversations are moving to the context panel in the Zendesk Agent Workspace. You'll be able to view customer context, search for help center articles, work with side conversations, and manage applications, all from a single, resizable panel in the ticket interface.
The "What's New" pop-ups are being served to Agents and non-Admin users in Zendesk. This introduces distractions to the Agent experience and is not ideal.
How can the pop-ups for "What's New" be suppressed from presenting to Non-Admin users when opening the Zendesk Support suite?
The following "What's New" popup only shows once there's a new update or feature. You can easily click on the X button to close it.
Thank you and have a wonderful day ahead!
Hello DJ Buenavista Jr.,
Thank you for replying but no "X button" exists in the pop up, simply the option to either "remind me later" or "watch now". Below is a screenshot to help illustrate.
Regardless of the options available, it should not be served to non-admin users. Users should be focused on contacts and not watching Zendesk events or reading about features that we have not deployed to our agents. How can I toggle this feature for my agents?
The X is hidden under the photo -- but regardless, it's a really good point.
As a Zendesk Admin, we're really like to be able to control how and if these popups appear to our users. We know our teams well and some of them can make the leap from what's being advertised vs what we can/cannot deploy as admins in a custom environment....some cannot....
One change that has been noticed is the Text-Editor that Zendesk uses - we are using a script with ZenDesk which adds a 'Hi', a 'Hi (customer's name) and a 'Ask for a review' button in the Rich-Text Editor toolbar at the bottom of the Public Reply/Internal Note field and since the change of the Text-Editor, these buttons have broken.
Here is the code we have at the moment that temporarily solved the issue, but we are trying to avoid using '.ck-editor__editable_inline' because this causes issues with deleting text from our reply in Zendesk:
Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
In regards to the following banner about "Whats New", we'll let our team know about this and take this as product feedback.
I noticed we can no longer use our own keyboard text shortcuts unless it's all one line.
Is there a way to enable the use of our own keyboard text shortcuts?
Hi Nicco, thanks for writing in!
We just want to clarify if you are referring to the shortcuts feature that is available in your Support profile/avatar? This keyboard shortcut is described here Viewing and deactivating keyboard shortcuts. Thank you!
