How the integration works
The first thing you need to decide is what satisfaction metric you'd like to measure. Nicereply offers three metrics:
If you choose a CSAT survey, you can also choose the type of rating scale. See the examples below:
After you decide what metric you want to measure you need to decide which distribution option to use. You can either measure customer satisfaction directly in your Zendesk signature (email template), via trigger or after your chat conversation via Nicereply chat plugin. Then connect your Zendesk account with Nicereply.
If you choose trigger distribution you set it up and Nicereply will start scanning the status of your tickets on a regular basis. Trigger is an action that is caused by an event in Zendesk - in this case it is the resolution of a ticket. After a ticket is resolved a survey is triggered by this event.
Nicereply will send an e-mail survey to every customer your company had a conversation with after the ticket is resolved. You can edit the trigger behaviour - for example edit the number of hours since the resolution of the ticket after which the survey is sent.
If you choose email template you copy Nicereply survey code and insert it into your Zendesk email template. In this case a customer will be able to rate your agents after each interaction, because the survey will be placed in their signature.
And finally if you choose Nicereply chat integration your customer will be able to rate your agents after each chat session.
Features of the integration
See the list of 7 major features of the integration between Zendesk and Nicereply.
1. Push ratings & comment right to the ticket as a note
All ratings will be pushed to the relevant ticket in a form of note, as you can see in this screenshot:
Note: you can enable/disable pushing of CSAT, CES or NPS ratings & comments as Note and Custom field into ticket in the survey Settings.
2. Save CSAT/CES/NPS rating in the custom ticket field
Beside the note, Nicereply will “automatically” set up the custom field and save CSAT/CES/NPS rating value – see left panel on following screenshot:
Note: you can enable/disable push of CSAT rating value into ticket custom field in the survey settings.
3. Ticket backlink
Identify feedback in context with the direct link to the rated ticket.
4. Sync customers’ name to CSAT/CES/NPS ratings
Customers often don’t share their name in a rating form. Nicereply will automatically add customer names in the rating feed based on the ticket ID, so you don't need to use the name field on the survey.
5. Setup triggers based on CSAT/CES/NPS value
As we have our CSAT/CES/NPS value stored in the custom field, we can do some automation. E.g. we can set an alert tag to ticket with low/bad rating:
