Screens for Zendesk Tickets

This section will cover details on the configuration of Zendesk ticketing screens

What are the ticketing screen configuration options for Zendesk?

Upon converting requests into Zendesk tickets, the ticket details are relayed back to the requester on the request channel. These details are presented within a structured element known as a ticket message block.

The screens section empowers you to modify and configure how this ticket message is displayed to the requester. This includes the ability to show or hide a Zendesk ticket's Priority and Status, as well as manage the ticket resolution buttons, enabling you to mark Zendesk tickets as Solved directly from the request channel on Slack.

It is mandatory to enable Zendesk ticketing to access screen configuration settings. Learn how to do that here.
