Zendesk for WordPress allows you to bring your helpdesk, powered by Zendesk, into your blog or site. Here's an overview of all the features:
Single sign on with Zendesk's Remote Authentication
Have a healthy user base already? With Single Sign On, your users won't have to login to Zendesk to submit tickets, check their progress or comment in community forums.
When users try to login to Zendesk, we'll ping your WordPress site to see if they're already logged in, and then sign them straight into Zendesk without them needing to register or set a new password. It's 100% secure, too!
Turn your blog comments straight into Zendesk tickets, with one click**
Need to take that conversation offline, or escalate someones question or problem to someone else in the company. From the comments administration screen, you can take any comment made and turn it into a Ticket. The process is completely seamless for your users, and they'll appreciate the extra mile you're going to provide amazing customer service.
The Zendesk feedback tab**
Add a tab to any webpage so users can search your knowledge base, chat with an agent or submit a ticket. You can completely customise the look and feel. You can have it on every page on your WordPress blog, or choose where you want it with the use of a template tag.
Access your tickets from your dashboard**
Full access to your views, tickets (including custom fields) and comments. Never lose sight on your support requests, no matter where you are.
A simple contact form, on the dashboard**
Give your visitors the ability to quickly submit a question or issue with a two field contact form. You can place this on the dashboard, restricting it to only those with Zendesk accounts, or you can allow anyone to open a request regardless of a Zendesk account.
