Sending iOS & Google Play reviews to Desk.com

Appbot automatically groups your app reviews making it easy to spot trends in bugs, crashes, feature requests and more. While this information is easily accessible from the range of intuitive features and tools within the Appbot system, it can also be automatically posted to Desk with our app reviews Desk integration!

Setting up an integration with Desk.com makes the management of your app store reviews  part of your support workflow. We’ll automatically post your reviews as tickets in Desk. Appbot will also add some labels to each review. You can use these labels for filtering in your Desk account, so you can be sure the right people are seeing the right reviews.
