Feedback and feature requests come in from all channels, especially Zendesk. Send user feedback from Zendesk tickets directly to Roadmap to track feedback.
With the Roadmap and Zendesk integration, ideas, feedback, and follow-ups don’t fall through the cracks and you don’t have to worry about endlessly tagging tickets in Zendesk.
When you’re having a conversation with someone in Zendesk and they share feedback such as “Hey, we’re wishing you had a Zapier integration” or “I’d love if we were able to export our reports” – the Roadmap and Zendesk integration lets teams capture, share, and track feedback with the product team.
Once you’ve enabled the integration, your team can create new Feedback from a Zendesk ticket directly in the sidebar.
Once you submit the note, Roadmap creates new feedback for your product team to review. The user from Zendesk and the teammate sharing the feedback are automatically added as followers and can be notified when there is progress with their feedback.
You’ll also have a convenient link back to the original Zendesk ticket from Roadmap, even as this feedback is added to ideas or stories on your roadmap. This can be helpful if you ever need to dive in and understand more from the original conversation.
Step 1: Enable the integration from your Roadmap account. Click on Settings –> Integrations –> Connect button for Zendesk.
Step 2: Copy the displayed Roadmap ID in the resulting popup. You’ll need it for the later steps. Then, click Install.
Step 3: A new tab will open on the Zendesk Marketplace. Click Install.
Step 4: Select the account you’d like to connect to Roadmap, then click Install.
Step 5: Paste in the Roadmap ID you copied earlier, then click Install.
From here you and your team can start using notes in your Zendesk tickets to create new feedback in Roadmap.
📌 Note : if you share the Zendesk integration with your team members in Roadmap, they can improve their notification experience by having each team member add the email address they use in Zendesk to their Roadmap profile in Account –> My Profile.
