About the Zendesk App by Watchman Monitoring

Last updated:

As tickets are created in a Zendesk account, the current computer status, full of details, is sent as an internal note, and a brief customer friendly note is applied as well. The monitored computer's status will change over time, and continually updating the ticket with notes would result in excess notifications to Zendesk agents.

Watchman Monitoring's Zendesk app allows agents to see the current status on-demand as they view a ticket. This article will explain how to enhance the Zendesk ticket integration with a full fledged app.

Enable the Zendesk integration

Choose Watchman Monitoring Status from the Zendesk App store

Click on the Install App button.

Enter your Dashboard URL (e.g.  subdomain.monitoringclient.com)
