CSAT/CES/NPS trigger distribution in Zendesk chat

Besides Nicereply integration with Zendesk support you can now distribute your surveys via trigger in Zendesk chat. When you finish the chat session Nicereply will automatically send the CSAT/CES/NPS survey to the customer via email. First, you need to decide about the customer satisfaction metric you're planning to use. Every step in the article is the same for CSAT, NPS and CES. Manual will show you steps with CSAT example.

You can either follow the integration video manual or follow the written documentation below the video.

  • To fire your trigger, you need to met these two requirements:

    • Have your chat customer's email
    • Close the chat

  • Integration video manual

Creating API client in Zendesk Chat

First, we need to create new API client for Nicereply in your Zendesk Chat account. Go to your account > click on Settings > Account > API and finally Add API Client button.

Now you need to insert Client name and Company name (these two are arbitrary), and Redirect URL. 

It is crucial to insert this specific Nicereply redirect URL(otherwise the connection won't work)!!!:  https://admin.nicereply.com/integrations/oauth/zendeskChat

When you're done click Create API Client

Now you see your specific Client ID and Client Secret. Leave the window with these two id's open (otherwise you won't be able to access it again!!!) and switch to Nicereply. 

Connecting Zendesk chat with Nicereply

1. Click on the NEW SURVEY button in the top left corner of the screen and choose the satisfaction metric you'd like to use. Click Start CSAT/CSAT/NPS

2. From distribution options choose “TRIGGER”.

3. You’re on the app directory page now, click on Zendesk chat icon.
