Combining Contact Streams

In a bid to seek your interest, a user might resort to more than one means of communication. This may include their private and workplace email, or in some cases social media platforms. The upshot is that the client support service is made difficult because these means of communication make a new contact in your helpdesk on each instance. A way to solve this and make it effective is by combining these different communication channels and categorize them under a single contact. It is accessible by going to “Customers” then “Contacts”. This makes it easier for the representatives to get collective data such as the latest tickets and corporate data while at the same time permitting the clients to use a smooth one communication channel.

Automated Ticket Refresh

Freshdek support reps often have a lot of tickets opened in separate tabs of their browser window, allowing them to switch easily between them. The flip side is that the tickets are not always on their current version. Also, users might have replied without their knowledge or, in some cases, the tab properties may be been modified. However, the auto-refresh add-on from Freshdesk ensures that the customer support professionals always have their tickets in their most recent form.

Agents can also execute an action on multiple tickets at once from the ticket list page. Finally, the upgraded ticket page is more organized and appealing to the eye. For more information on the latest news and updates, visit their social media pages: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube or LinkedIn.
