In the older version of Zendesk, there is an "Add CC" feature, which we heavily used. However, in the newer version of Zendesk, this was replaced by "Add followers," which is an issue if we are CC-ing agents who might respond to customers.
Unfortunately, the "Add followers" action does not CC an agent, which means that the end-users will not see agents as having been CC'd on the ticket. If the agent added as a follower suddenly decides to chime in in the conversation, the end-users will be surprised because they weren't aware that they were involved in the ticket, which is not exactly a good user experience.
It would be great if Zendesk would add back the "Add CC" action to the newer Zendesk, as the "Add followers" action does not completely replace its function.
