Zoho Desk Integration

Overview

When you receive multiple customer queries and support requests in your organization, creating support tickets in the help desk manually can become tedious and take a good deal of time, which can otherwise be utilized in helping out your customers. If your organization uses Zoho Desk to manage support tickets, you can use the Zoho Forms - Zoho Desk integration to automatically push the form entries as support tickets into your desk portal. You can add description and attach files, images uploaded by customers to the tickets created using this integration.
