Creating custom layouts to improve agent workflow (EAP)

Return to top

    Hi Team,
    Is there a way to add other componets other than apps?  Can we add knowledge capture app as a component for layout builder?

    Is there an option to assign layout to each group?

    Thank you

    Hi Arthur
    See comments below:

    • In addition to Apps, you can move components from the context panel into the main ticket layout.
    • You can also add the Knowledge capture app to a layout, but if you already have Knowledge enabled in the context panel, there will be some redundancy. In the Agent Workspace, Zendesk recommends using Knowledge, instead of the Knowledge capture app. 
    • For this first EAP, you can only have one ticket layout applied at a time, but we're planning a quick follow-on EAP in the next few months that will enable you to assign different layouts based on contextual workspaces.

    Hi there,


    During the 'What's New at Zendesk 2023 Q3' presentation which showed off this feature they showed a video which when clicking the 'conversation' component, it gave them options for 'conversation order' and 'composer placement' (32:48 through the presentation if someone wants to check) - this doesn't seem to be in the EAP version.


    Is there any info on when these features from the video will be available? These are the main reasons we are interested in the feature - so we can customise the layout to be more in line the how Zendesk used to show conversations before the Zendesk Agent Workspace was implemented.

    Hi Scott, 
    The feature you mention is not available, yet. We'll update the documentation when it is ready for EAP.  Release date TBD.

    Hola Lisa, 

    ¿Existe la posibilidad de editar colores? (ej: color de la ventana del chat activado).

    Hi Diego

    Custom layouts do not include the ability to change interface colors. Have you tried configuring your own style sheet? See Making Zendesk products accessible.
