Zoho Projects Integration - Zoho Desk Knowledge Base

Setting up Zoho Projects Integration

Encourage collaboration between your customer support and product teams by integrating with Zoho Projects. The integration enables you to automatically create tasks and submit issues in Zoho Projects from inside support tickets. For example, if your customers raise issues over tickets, agents can instantly create and submit a task associated with those customers from within Zoho Desk. They can easily see the number of tasks associated with a ticket and track their status in real-time.

Integrating with Zoho Projects brings with it the below features to deliver a great customer experience:
  1. Create tasks and submit issues for tickets to the relevant product team by mapping departments to related projects.
  2. Sync key task information such as subject, description, and due date in real-time.
  3. Agents and engineers can collaborate over comments inside tasks and issues.
  4. See issue details like assignee, status, and due date from inside a ticket.
  5. Access the linked ticket from inside an issue in Zoho Projects.
  6. Delink tasks and issues from their connected tickets in Zoho Desk.

Configuring Zoho Projects Integration
Configuring the Zoho Projects integration can be split into 2 steps.

        You can configure one portal from Zoho Projects in this integration.
  6. Select the Portal with which you want to integrate from the drop-down menu.
  7. Click Authorize.
  8. Once approved, the Configuration tab will be displayed.

The next step is to map projects with departments and select the modules to be integrated with Zoho Desk.
  1. Under the Configuration tab, do the following:
    1. Map the departments with the related projects in Zoho Projects.
      On integration, all tasks and issues created in the department will be pushed inside one of their mapped projects and managed from within Zoho Projects.
    2. Under "Zoho Projects Modules", select the check-box corresponding to Issues if you'd like to submit tickets as issues and track them from inside tickets.
      Tasks will be pre-selected and cannot be unchecked.
      Note: This section will not be available if you have configured the Zoho BugTracker integration for Zoho Desk.
  2. Click Save.
  3. If you'd selected Issues, you could choose the events you would like to be notified of and select how to sync comments between tickets and issues.
    Under the "Configure Actions - Issues," turn on or off the toggle switch to customize notifications and comment actions between your connected accounts.
  4. Your selection will be saved instantaneously.

  1. The following Zoho Desk tasks fields are pre-mapped and synchronized with the corresponding Project fields:
     Zoho Desk
     Zoho Projects
     Due Date
     Due Date

  2. Comments left in a Zoho Desk task gets added to its mapped task in Zoho Projects and vice versa.
