Flex-Zendesk Integration Release Notes

Mar 16 2020 ( v1.1.1)


  • This release includes some minor internal changes to the Click-to-Dial functionality to avoid any overlap and clashing of this functionality with any other outbound tasks plug-ins, like the Experimental Dialpad features. Additional checks are enforced in the click to dial implementation to avoid this overlap. No functional or experience changes to the users.

  • Using the new Zendesk CTI Flex integration, teams using Zendesk as their ticketing system can now interact with their customers across multiple communication channels and focus on solving customer issues instead of administering their account, by letting Flex take care of the ticket housekeeping, right from within their Zendesk UI.

    • Context Switching: Set your Zendesk Screen to Automatically change to a related Zendesk ticket or User when you multitask.

    • Interaction logging: Automatically log Flex interactions into a related Zendesk ticket.
    • Chat Transcripts: Automatically save Chat Transcripts for non-voice channels as Internal Ticket Comments.
    • Voice Recording: Enable Flex Voice Recording Feature for Inbound voice calls.
