Analyze Zendesk Tickets With Appbot


You can now automatically import your support tickets from Zendesk into Appbot by using our new Custom Data Sources feature!

You’ll be able to report on your  Zendesk tickets in the same way you report on your app reviews in Appbot:

  • see Sentiment trends over time
  • instantly see which words are most common in your tickets
  • group your reviews by Topics, Tags, Custom Topics and lots more…

You’ll need to have Administrator permissions in Zendesk to complete this integration set-up. If you do not have Administrator permissions on Zendesk can:

  • invite a Zendesk Administrator to join your Appbot team, and have them complete the set up
  • ask the person who runs Zendesk in your company to grant you Administrator permissions.

Plugging Zendesk into Appbot is easy:

  1. Login to your Appbot account and navigate to the Manage Apps page from the top navigation.
  2. From the top menu, select “Custom Source”.
