You won´t find Nicereply ticket field in your basic account setup. Therefore we need to add Nicereply ticket field to your Deskpro account.

To do this go to  Settings > Tickets > Fields > Add > Choose single-line textbox and click Configure Field. The title has to be Nicereply CES. Click the option only show this field to agents, then click save.
