How do I create automated Triggers using Tags?

Firstly, make sure you’ve got auto-tagging enabled on your Zendesk account. This means Zendesk will apply tags that you’ve previously created automatically based on the words that are mentioned in your reviews. For example, if you’ve used the tags ‘bug’, ‘crash’ and ‘error’ in the past, Zendesk will look for those words and automatically apply the relevant tag to any reviews where those words are mentioned.

Go to the Admin panel by clicking the cog icon in the bottom left of the Zendesk screen. Then select ‘Triggers’ under ‘Business Rules’. You’ll see a page like this:

You can see how powerful this is – the options are almost endless.

or example, you could create a Zendesk Trigger for the critical words your Technical team are interested in, and auto-assign it to the Technical team.

To learn more about how Triggers work, head over to this Zendesk Support article. You can also find more on Tags here.
