Wouldn’t it be great if you could chat with website visitors directly from your Zendesk account instead of constantly switching back and forth between tabs? Well Zendesk users, you’re in luck! We recently released our very own SnapEngage Chat Application, which allows agents to launch their SnapEngage Chat Portal directly within Zendesk.
Here’s how to get things up and running:
(Please note: you must be configured as an account Administrator within Zendesk to continue the setup process. You can enable role permissions for your team in Step 5.)
This will take you to the Zendesk Marketplace, where you can search for applications.
Click on the “SnapEngage Chat App” when it appears in the search results to the left.
On the second installation screen, no special credentials are needed. Click the “Install” button again to complete installation. In addition, you can enable and edit role restrictions as needed for the rest of your team. Click “Update” when finished.
You’ll see that a new chat bubble icon has appeared on the left side of your Zendesk account. Clicking this icon launches the SnapEngage Chat Portal.
Once you enter the correct email and password, click the orange “Sign In” button.
You will use the SnapEngage Chat Portal within Zendesk as normal. Now, just set your status to “Available” and you’re ready to start accepting visitor chats!
