To enable the Zendesk integration for Olark, once logged into your Olark account, navigate to the "Integrations" tab and click on the icon for "Zendesk" and follow the rest of the steps below. You can find the full tutorial here.

  1. Enter your Zendesk credentials on Olark's Integration page
  2. It's not required, but Olark recommends you enable their pre-chat survey so you can collect people's name and e-mail address. This makes contacting them in the future much easier.
  3. Then you just have a conversation with your visitors like normal. They see the regular Olark experience
  4. Now you have two new tools at your disposal: !tag to tag the conversation with conversation information you want to remember later and !lead to put the conversation in to Zendesk (you can also set it up so all conversations go in to Zendesk automatically).
  5. Then when you surf over to Zendesk, you can see the full text of the conversation you just had, along with information about the visitor. On the sidebar you can even see we've created a profile for the visitor so you can easily access past conversations you've had with them.
