How to achieve full Zendesk integration for outbound calls (V2)

babelforce comes with many inbound call Automations already preconfigured to achieve deep integration with Zendesk. But ticketing actions can also be triggered with Automtions concerning outbound calls.

In order to set up this functionality in your account, you will need to make sure a couple of elements are configured.

Overview 

Here are 3 Automations which will look up an end-user in Zendesk and then create a new ticket or append information to an existing ticket when an outbound call is made:

These Automations will make use of a few Triggers, so let's have a quick look at them as well:

Triggers

The triggers will be selected in the applications, so it is easier to create these first and have them ready.

The first one will determine that the call leg being tested for is that initiated by the agent by clicking within the babelConnect app:

The second also checks for this leg, but additionally will only fire if the user has selected 'Create Ticket' as the call mode in babelConnect:

The last trigger does the same check but only fires if the mode was 'Append to ticket' for an outbound call:

Automations

End-user lookup

The first Automation is a very simple one. All it does is perform a look-up action to see if there is matching Zendesk end-user with the number dialed:

Create ticket

The second Automation creates a ticket using the second Trigger we made above – i.e. for the 'create' mode case:

Update ticket

And the last Automation will append something to a ticket, only happening if the 'append' Trigger fires:
