How to Use

New users of this webapp first must create an account and organize their basic business structure by setting up support channels (email, phone, social media, etc.). Then, users are free either to immediately start managing incoming tickers manually, or even better, to set up automation routines to streamline the daily flow of customer tickets. In addition to ticket management, users can also quickly set up a self-service portal for customers and activate the AI assistant feature that will provide quick responses to common customer queries.

Data import can be handled via an addon manager that can integrate with over 200 of the most popular 3rd party apps and services (Google Workspace, Slack, Mailchimp, Shopify, Zapier, Twilio, and many others) as well as 45 native apps developed by Zoho.

And in addition to a web dashboard, this cloud-powered service can also be fully accessed via native iOS/Android apps, enabling managers and agents to help customers even when they are away from their work desks.

User Interface

The UI of this Zoho Desk webapp is user-friendly and intuitive, enabling first-time users to quickly set up their work environment and quickly discover ways to accelerate and automate daily tasks. Its main dashboard provides a clear overview of tickets and their status, and the interface is customizable to match the business's branding and aesthetic.

Basic navigation is done via the tabbed interface that promotes easy access to the “Tickets”, “Analytics”, “Knowledge Base”, and “Social” service listings. Users have streamlined access to the most important ticket listings, including a showcase of current requests (Overdue, No Due Date, On Hold, and Resolved ticket entries), the status of agents, and much more.

In addition to the web interface, the same functionality is also present in native iOS/Android apps that feature a fully optimized touch-friendly interface on smaller displays.
