How to configure Zendesk integration

You can change the colors, location and behavior of web widget on Zendesk Admin. Mobile app look and button location are not customizable.

If you enable Zendesk Chat, the button will allow customers to create new live chat conversations.

Notes

Zendesk messages are not synchronized between customer's devices. For example, if your customer sends a message from their mobile device, they will receive your reply to their mobile device only and will not see your conversation on the web app.

Zendesk can only be enabled on custom branded apps.

At the moment, Zendesk integration does not support push notifications.

Zendesk has multiple chat products, some of which may not work with your mobile apps. If you are unsure about that, please contact us.
