Use Zendesk Integration

This topic shows the usage of the key features that can be achieved after integrating Yeastar P-Series Software Edition with Zendesk.

Click to Call

Install 'Yeastar Linkus for Google' Chrome extension and set up Linkus Web Client to work with the Chrome extension.
Users can click on detected numbers on the Zendesk web page, a call is then sent out directly via a PBX extension.

Call Popup

Keep at least one of the following clients logged in:
  • Linkus Desktop Client
  • Linkus Web Client
    Note: If users close web browser or Linkus Web Client tab, they can NOT receive calls. To avoid this, users can install Chrome extension 'Yeastar Linkus for Google', which allows for the call pop-up browser tab even when web browser is closed.
When Zendesk users receive / answer an inbound call from a Zendesk contact, or finish a call with a Zendesk contact, a new browser tab will automatically be launched to show the Zendesk contact's information.
Note: For more information about the settings of specific trigger event (receiving, answering, or ending an inbound call), see Set up Call Popup for Inbound Calls.

Note: The pop-up window might be blocked by the browser. In this case, users need to click on the blocked icon at the search bar, allow the pop-up window and website redirection, and then click Done.

Contact Synchronization

Inbound calls and outbound calls will trigger a Zendesk contact lookup. If there exists the same number in Zendesk, the matched Zendesk contact will be synchronized to the associated PBX phonebook, and the synchronized contact is read-only on PBX.

For more information, see Set up Contact Synchronization from Zendesk.

Automatic Contact Creation

A new contact will be created automatically in Zendesk when the associated extensions call or receive calls from an unknown number.

For more information, see Set up Automatic Contact Creation for Zendesk.

Automatic Ticket Creation

When the extension associated with a Zendesk user receives an inbound call from, or places an outbound call to a Zendesk contact, a new ticket will be created automatically in the details page of the contact.

For more information, see Set up Automatic Ticket Creation for Zendesk.

Call Journal

Note: The feature is supported only if you have set up automatic ticket creation for Zendesk.

If you enable automatic ticket creation, the records of the specified types of calls (outbound calls, inbound calls, and missed calls) will be logged into the auto-created tickets, which are displayed in the details page of Zendesk contacts.
