Introduction

Hemanth of Alliance Department here. In this blog, I tried creating additional new status in Zendesk.

Zendesk

A cloud-based help desk management solution offering a customer service portal, knowledge base, and online communities to be built. The solution offers a front-end portal, live chat features that are customizable and can be integrated with applications like salesforce and google analytics.

Ticket status

The ticket status defines the lifecycle of the ticket in various phases of the ticket. The ticket status can change multiple times. Easy handling of ticket status and status labels can make customer-agent relationships smoother.

Default Zendesk Functionality

Demo

Go to Admin Center In object and rules click on ticket statuses Click on create ticket status Note:These status are tied with old ticket status

In category section clicking on-hold, giving the name Now clicking on save Going back to support, refreshing and checking the status

Conclusion

For customer experience in Zendesk, it means customer can leverage Zendesk functionality with processess that have more meaning in the organisation. The customer will have better understanding where exactly the ticket stands. From example above instead of on-hold, reached to third party or delivery company status. Thus keeping them better informed.
