    this feature would be very helpful.  Is there no way a sound notification is generated for incoming email regardless of assignment?  Switching from outlook, this is a sorely missed feature.



  • Bryan Flynn

    Hi @.... Just to clarify -- you want the Zendesk Support browser agent window to play a sound when a ticket you're assigned has been updated or assigned? Or are you talking with the mobile app notifications? Please post additional details that you may have. This thread can be used for others to up-vote or add their own use cases for any feature request.

    This feature would be incredibly helpful to me in Zendesk Support browser agent window

  • Dianne Lopez

    this is a helpful feature to include in the next  Zendesk update. If possible to set different sounds for medium , high and urgent tickets

  • Alliance Pharmacy Group

    Yes this would be helpful.  Like Chat sounds but for Support tickets - New and updated.

  • Stuart Rivers

    Yes, would be helpful!

  • Elizabeth King

    A sound notification is basically needed whenever an agent needs to do something - reply to a client's message. Otherwise, how are they supposed to know that they need to quickly reply to something in one of their 10 open tabs?

    We are using Zendeks Support just for the whatsapp integration. For us it is very important to have a sound notification because the client expects immediate response on whatsapp. Please make this feature available! Thanks

  • Juan Moreno

    We need this too.

    Precisamos desse recurso, todos os chats de e-mail quando recebemos a resposta de volta não nos notifica com som, nunca sabemos se aquele ticket tem resposta de e-mail, estamos contornando isso jogando tudo pra status em espera e vendo nas visualizações, mas é ruim demais pois nem todos os agentes conseguem ficar entrando nos em espera pra ver os que foram respondidos, por acabar priorizando os que vão chegando na fila em tempo real. Com a notificação de som a gente fica ciente que chegou a resposta do e-mail e consegue encaixar eles entre os atendimentos de chat em tempo real. Tentem por favor trazer o som de notificação sempre que o chat é atualizado com novas mensagens independente da origem da mensagem


    Translated to English via Google Translate, courtesy of the Zendesk Community Team:

    We need this feature, all email chats when we get the response back doesn't notify us with sound, we never know if that ticket has an email response, we're getting around this by putting everything to hold status and seeing in the views, but it's too bad because not all agents are able to get in on hold to see which ones have been answered, as they end up prioritizing those who arrive in the queue in real time. With the sound notification, we are aware that the e-mail response has arrived and are able to fit them among the chat sessions in real time. Please try to bring up the notification sound whenever the chat is updated with new messages regardless of the message origin

  • Mandy Howard

    Sound and visual cues are very important in the browser so as not to miss when a customer replies to an open ticket. With multiple open tickets, even if there is a sound notification, which ticket is the one that needs attention?

  • Maria


    We are also interested in this! If the Zendesk Support browser agent window could play a sound when a new ticket has been updated or assigned. 

    Thank you!
  • Louise Feaheny

    Definitely interested in seeing this as a feature! It would be really helpful to get a sound notification whenever a new or updated ticket came in, like the chat notifications. It's the only thing the Zendesk is really missing!

    Hi Everyone! 

    It sounds like the Zendesk Product Team has this on their roadmap for 2022. Source from a duplicate Community Post on this topic that is more recent, and I have shared this feedback up to the team. 


  • De-De Herbert

    A sound notification, and or a push notification to email would be wonderful! I have to admit I am surprised that this isn't already available! 


  • Tiago Geraldi Mendes

    We are migrating the email inboxes of our agents to Zendesk.. And it's very hard for them to keep track of new interactions and updates on tickets. This feature would help a lot, for them to be notified with a sound, that something happened in one of their tickets.. 

    Could be in tickets that they were assigned, or tickets they are requesters as well (in case of internal communication, the requester is an agent, as sender).


    The cell phone app does that.. any new comment there's a beep. It helps me a lot to work in the computer with my zendesk inbox, and cell phone on the side, notifying of new messages.

    This sound notification would help a lot!

    As an Agent who uses the web app audible notification of new and updated tickets would be very helpful in my day-to-day work.
