Last Updated June 8, 2023

Brief Overview

Workstation’s integration with Zendesk empowers users to efficiently navigate their support tickets and access knowledge base resources. Workstation simplifies ticket management and enhances the support experience with the ability to search for tickets and relevant KB articles.

Additionally, the homepage widget provides a consolidated view of assigned and requested tickets, ensuring effortless tracking and prioritization.

Requires admin configuration

Zendesk requires admin configuration on the WalkMe Console before it can be added to your desktop Workstation. If you don’t see Zendesk or the other features as an option in your Workstation, speak to your organization’s WalkMe admin.
