Integrate Zendesk Customer Service with Online Forms

Formsite Zendesk customer support

Using Formsite’s online forms with other online services is easy with our Integrations search page. Browsing the integrations lets form owners read about and choose one or more services to continue after submitting the form. A popular example is Zendesk for creating a complete customer service process.

Zendesk gives organizations the ability to provide information and real-time support to customers. Their service provides knowledge base and FAQ features, issue ticketing, and chat features.

Formsite Zendesk integration

Formsite’s Zapier integration lets form owners send information to Zendesk after submitting forms. For example, if the Formsite form collects a support request, the Zendesk integration can:

  • Find or Create an Organization, User, and Ticket
  • Create or update the ticket with the issue
  • Notify the support team for resolution

See how to build the process with Formsite and Zendesk.

Start with the Form

Use the form builder to create the form, with Short Answer items for text-based questions like ‘Name’ and ‘Address’. Be sure to use the Email Address item for collecting email addresses for sending receipts and status updates. Also be sure to get the recipient’s opt-in permission to send later emails.

After completing the form, click the View Form button to complete a test result. This test result is important as it provides sample data for Zapier during the setup.
