1. Why am I unable to integrate Zoho Desk with Zoho CRM?
Profile/Permission: By default in your CRM, those who have admin level permissions or an admin profile have access privilege for extensions. You won't be able to integrate marketplace apps into your CRM unless you have the appropriate permission or profile. If you can't integrate Zoho Desk with your Zoho CRM, check with your local admin.
API key disabled: This can occur if the user is disabled at the time of integration, so the API key may have been disabled. The admin can enable the user and proceed with the integration.
Account Disabled: Contacts, Deals, and Accounts module are the default modules in CRM that show Zoho Desk tickets on their related lists. If the accounts module has been disabled or the account name field is in the Unused Fields in the Contacts module of your CRM account, the integration will fail. Make sure that the account name field is present.
Account already exists: If your CRM account is already mapped to the Desk account with some other organization, an error message of 'your org is already integrated' will be thrown. If you don't know or remember doing this, first check whether your CRM account has already been integrated. If so, try deleting that previous integration.
If your account is not linked to Zoho Desk but you are getting this error, please feel free to reach out to our CRM support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Data Breakage: There may be breakage during integration while the data is getting synced between the CRM and the Desk account. This issue is generally resolved by running migration and integrating CRM with DESK again.
If you are not sure about the reason your integration failed, feel free to contact our support team at email@example.com
This is because the CRM Related list has not been enabled for that custom module in Zoho Desk Integration page of your CRM account.
To enable it, go to Zoho CRM > Settings > Marketplace > Zoho > Zoho Desk > Manage > Choose the custom module, then save the configuration
3. I have created a ticket under the Contacts record details page but it is showing no ticket found, although the ticket is available in Desk
The ticket may have been created in a different department from the department wherein the user (agent) is active.
Confirm who holds the department permission in order to view the tickets. You can give permission to the user for that department in your organization, if you want them to view corresponding tickets of those departments.
Go to Zoho Desk Account > Settings > General > Department, and ensure the user is active under the respective department.
4. Why am I getting a 'CRM integration is not authorized for the portal' alert while saving Zoho CRM and Desk Synchronization settings under Zoho Desk ?
You may have downgraded your CRM edition to an edition that does not support extensions. You need to check the feature availability for different editions of Zoho CRM available for subscription.
Please ensure that your account is not downgraded to the Free edition of Zoho CRM.
This issue can occur if your contact doesn't hold the 'email address' field value in the records. Please ensure that email address is present and you will be able to view the '+ New' tab in Zoho Desk related list.
This is an intermittent issue that can be fixed by creating a dummy ticket through the Zoho Desk related list under any contact or account. This will refresh the account, and Desk module will be enabled in your CRM account.
Your instant sync has either been stopped or paused. You need to resume the sync from the Zoho Desk Integration page in your CRM.
To resume, go to Zoho CRM > Settings > Marketplace > Zoho > Zoho Desk > Manage > Sync Settings > Resume Sync.
8. When I deleted a record from my CRM account, why did it get deleted from the Desk account as well?
This is because the preferences have been set such that if any record under the contacts or accounts module is deleted the corresponding record will be deleted from the Desk account as well.
You need to change the preference from the Desk > Settings > Marketplace > Zoho > Zoho CRM > Preferences.
If you don't want your records to be deleted from CRM or Desk, select 'Never Delete' in the corresponding boxes.
