How the integration works

The first thing you need to decide is what satisfaction metric you'd like to measure. Nicereply offers three metrics: 

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 Help Scout signature (email template), or via trigger. Then connect your Help Scout 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 Help Scout - 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 solved a ticket with after it 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 Help Scout 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.

Features of the integration

See the list of 7 major features of the integration between Help Scout  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 at the bottom of this screenshot:


Note: you can enable/disable push of CSAT rating & comment as Note into ticket in the survey settings.

2. Save CSAT/CES/NPS rating in the custom ticket field

Beside the note, you can set up the custom field and save CSAT/CES/NPS rating value.

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.


6. User import

Sync all your Help Scout users with Nicereply with one click. New users will get an automated email with login instructions.

7. Customize your CSAT/CES/NPS surveys according to your branding and needs

Ask your customers the right question at the right time with branded one-click surveys. Customize your surveys and add additional questions.
