Add the Widget to a Page in Zendesk

Now that you have installed the Post to ProProfs Widget, you will need to add it to a page in Zendesk.

  1. In Zendesk under Views> My unsolved tickets, select a ticket (it doesn't matter which one).
  2. Select  Edit widgets on this page.
  3. A list of available widgets will appear. Select Search ProProfs.

The widget will now appear on the page.

How the Widget Works

The post widget will allow you to turn a Zendesk support ticket into a help topic in ProProfs.
When viewing a ticket in Zendesk, all you have to do is click Post Ticket. (Clicking Post Ticket will open up a new browser window. Make sure your pop-up blocker is not blocking the window.)

The ticket information will populate in a new ProProfs page where you can edit it. It will copy all the information from the ticket, including signatures, names, comments, phone numbers, etc., so you will want to remove whatever information you don't want to display in ProProfs.  You may also want to change the formatting and styles.

Once you are done editing the page, click Save.
