Many helpful automations can happen with the Zapier and Zoho Desk integration: Zapier lets you automate manual tasks like converting emails or social media posts into tickets. It also allows you to add comments, send replies, and create contacts within Zoho Desk using your CRM data, project management software, or any other relevant tool.

How the Zapier Integration Works

In order for the “magic” to happen, Zapier uses a “trigger-action” structure. This means that actions trigger or cause an effect as soon as they happen. For instance, when new tickets are created on Zoho Desk, you will get an immediate notification in your Slack channel. The ticket creation is the trigger, whereas the Slack notification is the action.
