  • Add a Read column to views to show if a your reply has been opened
  • Quickly identify what comments have been read with our exclusive Agent Assignment and Comment Summary features

Agent Assignment

Read items are marked by the sending agent or by the most recent agent for Automation notifications. This allows your agents to quickly identify each of their own read receipts and not waste time seeing which comment was read. (Exclusive)

Comment Summary

The read receipt includes a summary of the comment that was sent, to quickly identify exactly which email your customer read. (Exclusive)


Our read receipts work with both triggers and automations. When you send an automated email and it is read, we will display the automation name in the comment summary. (Exclusive)

Custom Views

Quickly create views, within your Zendesk account, to see which tickets have not been read based on adding DeskPerk tags to your tickets.

Meta Data

Would you like to know what device, computer or browser your user is using? You can optionally also include to display this data within the Read Receipt.

Block / Allow Lists

We automatically black list agents using the Zendesk website from marking comments as read. You can also black list IPs for staff that do not use the Zendesk website within your company manually to prevent unwanted reads as well. We also allow you to white list IPs for situations where you have agents onsite.
