Integrate with Zendesk

Overview

This article will walk you through integrating Zendesk with Klaviyo. After you enable Klaviyo's Zendesk integration, you'll be able to track and target customers based on their interactions with your Support team.

From Zendesk, Klaviyo can automatically import information about support requests/tickets as well as any customer notes and extra information you have stored in Zendesk.

Make sure Token Access is enabled and you'll find your API token here. If you haven't created an API token yet, you can also do so in this step.

Tickets can be marked "solved" by agents. Tickets marked as solved, then responded to by an end-user will be reset to an open status.
