Here are the newest integrations from Zendesk to help your team provide top-quality experiences.

incident.io

incident.io (Support) empowers teams to run incidents end-to-end. Rapidly fix and learn from incidents, so you can build more resilient products. This integration connects to incident.io and gives your agents a view of recent incidents from within Zendesk. Zendesk tickets can be attached to incidents to help you keep track of impacted customers and collate feedback. Once a ticket has been attached to an incident, incident.io will keep the two things in sync. Any updates to your incident will be added as internal notes to Zendesk, and any comments on the Zendesk ticket will appear right in the incident channel–helping you keep your organization in sync when things go wrong.

FireHydrant

FireHydrant (Support) is an incident management platform that provides automation, process compliance, and traceability–integrating the tools you already use today, like Zendesk. FireHydrant’s Zendesk integration allows support staff to create FireHydrant incidents and link existing incidents to support tickets directly from Zendesk. FireHydrant incident status updates are automatically posted back to linked Zendesk support tickets as internal notes, streamlining incident communications.

Screenjar Screen Recorder

Screenjar Screen Recorder (Support) makes it easy for customers to send you video recordings of their screen. You can generate a video request link using Screenjar and share it with the customer. Customers can simply click on the link and start recording. No software download/installation required, saving everyone’s time.

Tableau Connector by Alpha Serve

Tableau Connector by Alpha Serve (Support) is an app that allows you to connect Zendesk to Tableau. Export all Zendesk Support data related to tickets, ticket metrics, agents and users, satisfaction ratings, comments, organizations, and more. Build comprehensive reports to make data-driven decisions that progress strategic actions and help companies to build better relationships with their customers.
