Recipe: Adding comments and notes to tickets using triggers

    Is it just me, or did Zendesk remove "Internal Note" as a trigger action recently?

  • Kevin Rotairo

    Bobby Watton It looks like this is only available when you have the Advanced AI Add-on based on this article. If you're also comfortable working with Webhook and Zendesk APIs, you can also set that up but please note of this possible side effect

    It looks like this document might be outdated. I do not see an action called 'Autoreply' when trying to add a public comment via trigger. Is this now called "notify by"?

    Thanks for letting us know, Jordan. We'll have the team take a look and update the documentation if needed.

    I have tested the "Ticket > AutoReply" feature with the messaging channel. A public autoreply is added to the ticket comment. However, the customer who initiated the messaging conversation does not see the autoreply.

    When I contacted Zendesk support, I was told I needed to add an additional condition to the trigger to actually send a response to the customer. This is done using the "Notify by" feature. However, there is no "Notify by" option for messaging, only email.

    When a customer is requesting a response via messaging, you wouldn't want to send them a notification via email. You would want to send the notification via the channel they initiated the conversation from i.e. messaging.

    It looks like the "Ticket > AutoReply" feature simply appends a comment which is then visible to agents only. Is this correct?

    In the near future, will Zendesk release the ability to send an automated reply via the messaging channel?

    Can you confirm Trigger Action: "Ticket > Internal Note"  only is available for customers with Advanced AI add-on? 😃

    Hi Izabela,
    That's correct you need to have the add-on to use this feature.
