Hi everyone! The Virtual Lobby for Community Day is now open! Head on over to check out what we've got in store and to participate in some of the interactive activities.
Hi all! I'm excited to see what's new and coming soon in Zendesk world. Even more important will be meeting everyone and making connections. :D Can't wait!
Thanks for introducing yourself, Chris! We're looking forward to the event. :)
Hello! Thomas here from Premium Plus. Premium Plus is a master Zendesk partner located in Belgium (You all know from Tomorrowland > btw, they are using Zendesk ;-)) At Premium Plus I'm responsible for the onboarding team to implement Zendesk for our customers.
I'm really looking forward to this event! See you all soon!
Thanks for introducing yourselves and sharing what you're looking for from the event, Thomas and Vittal!
We're taking these comments into account as we plan out the topics for some of the sessions, so keep the questions and suggestions coming!
Hi everyone! I'm Sam Johnson, an Associate Director of Systems & IT Support at Achievement First, a collection of high-performing charter schools in New York City, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. I'm based in Brooklyn, and especially interested in learning:
- How other organizations best promote self-service. We use Answer Bot and have around 800 articles in Guide, but perhaps moreso shifting the mindset of our end-users (teachers and Operational school staff) on becoming more self-sufficient in searching for an answer in our documentation vs. reaching out to us and awaiting an answer/fix.
- What metrics others find most useful in Explore when looking at trends and grading how well agents are doing in support. We also use MaestroQA for direct ticket feedback.
We've also wanted to start a Community but don't necessarily have the staff to fully support it. Curious if anyone has launched Community at a small scale and grown it over time, or if it truly requires a large scale launch from the get-go.
Looking forward to it! :)
Hey Sam Johnson! Thanks for introducing yourself.
I think there are a lot of folks who are interested in discussing various things around self service, community management, and reporting. We'll do our best to get you connected with some other users who can share some thoughts. Looking forward to seeing you at the event in November!
Hi, I am Christine Schroeder. I am an Account Executive with OSP International LLC (also known in the project management community as the "PrepCast" team). We have been a user of Zendesk Support for many years. We are considering adding Zendesk Sell and are eager to talk to other ZD customers already using Support and Sell together. We are also interested in integrating apps like Slack, Calendly, and proposal/quote/invoicing software.
I am looking forward to this community day!

Hi there. I'm Marjana Cowan, Director of Technology Support at Sylvan Learning. We are new to the platform (just live 1 month ago) and eager to learn how others have implemented ZenDesk Support, Chat and Talk in their companies to maximize efficiency. We are big on data and would also love to hear about what Explore metrics/features others are excited about and how they are used.
Nice to meet you, Marjana! Thanks for posting. We look forward to connecting at Community Day!
Spencer Hutton here from Houston, TX.
I'm a Help Desk Manager for David Weekley Homes. We've been on Zendesk for almost 3 years. We have a team of 10 agents and use Zendesk to manage support tickets for all of our internal Team Members as well as hardware ordering and computer setups. I'm a data nerd and an amateur developer so I am very interested in gathering data from Zendesk in products like Explore and Power BI as well as building small desktop apps to work with tickets.
Nice to meet you, Spencer! We look forward to seeing you at Community Day.
I'm Ron and currently working for FleetGO as Teamleader for Support and Operations. As one of my, most fun, responsibilities is making sure we get everything out of ZenDesk. We have already implemented a Help Center and are now rolling out the Community; firstly for all our colleagues and expanding this over time. Looking forward to learning from everyone and sharing knowledge!
Thanks for saying hello, Ron! We're going to have some networking sessions related to community management and knowledge management toward the end of the event - sounds like that might be right up your alley!

I am McKenzie, Support Agent at VendorSmart where we help Vendors connect with Property Managers throughout the US. Looking forward to learning more about all that Zendesk can offer to assist small teams in staying organized.
My name is Jolly Crazed. I'm a manager for Crazed Printing in Newark, CA. I'm looking forward to discussing potential partnerships.

We are very interested in learning about the following:
- ZD Federated Search - filtering by product or key words
- Can we section content from the federated search locations on the UI so a user or agent can idenitfy the source of the content
- Is there an Admin utility (UI) to allow us to configure federated search vs configuring using the API
- Improved search filtering on the portal and in Knowledge Capture
- The use of machine language and AI to predict what KB content matches a user or agent search with high degree of accuracy
- Improved Explorer metrics: How to get a list of articles needing verification (by author) and exporting/sending to each agent as a notification, How to combine data set fields to get a more comprehensive report, etc.
- What KM improvements are planned in the roadmap of the product?
- Will badging (thru Gamification) be added to the community using a UI rather than API?
I am Melody Quinn and am the Operation Manager for our ZenDesk. We have used Zendesk for almost 2 years now and currently use Support, Guide, Gather and Explore. Aside from gaining more overall knowledge, I hope to hear about using Team Publishing, the Guide dashboards to help track our metrics, and tips on Google Analytics.
Tips on using content blocks and the new custom pages would be a bonus!
Looking forward to "meeting" everyone!
I am the ZD Admin and Operations Analyst for multiple support departments with an Fleet/Asset management company called AssetWorks. I have been working with the product since 2014. Looking forward to hearing how others use any ZD or 3rd party apps to improve the customer and/or agent experience. We currently have integrations with Jira and Customer Thermometer (surveys and CES). Always looking for ways to improve every aspect of the user experience!
Mary Paez - looking forward to seeing you tomorrow! FYI one of the end of day networking sessions will be for knowledge managers, and Maddie whom I know you've connected with in the past will be helping to lead that conversation.
Melody and bill cicchetti - great to have some familiar faces around tomorrow!
Hi everybody! I'm Monica White, the Tech Docs Manager at Identity Automation - a Cloud identity management system for K-20 education. Looking forward to brainstorming, networking, and learning new ways to do things!
Hello! I'm Debbie Binggeli, and I manage the Customer Service Department for the Nevada Department of Transportation. We implemented Zendesk just over a year ago and use it quite differently from those in a sales environment. I would love to meet other folks who work and utilize Zendesk in the public sector.
I am very interested in learning more about Explore reporting including CSAT data, because customer satisfaction is our highest priority. I'm especially interested in any tips and tricks some of you may have discovered along the way to help customers report on the service they received rather than the outcome of the situation. (i.e.: A customer calls to get a pot hole repaired, and the customer service rep was very kind and attentive. She receives bad feedback from the customer, not based on her service, but because the pot hole wasn't fixed quickly enough.) Looking forward to tomorrow!
I am Tanawat, from ExxonMobil, I am currently a system architect for Zendesk and other applications in the company.
ExxonMobil has been implementing Zendesk Support since 2019, and we are working on some of the Zendesk Guide recently.
Looking forward to meeting you all !
