Nicereply will utilise your existing integration with HelpScout and the workflow is follows:

1.  After CSAT/CES/NPS trigger activation Nicereply will start scanning the status of your tickets on a regular basis

2. Nicereply will send the CSAT/CES/NPS survey to the ticket requestor for all tickets created via Email channel, with status Resolved and without ticket update for 48 hours (by default)



3. Nicereply will collect the CSAT/CES/NPS ratings and push it to Help Scout as a note and the custom field value.
