  • Click on Connect and a new page will be opened

  • Click on Allow

  • Now Toky will start synchronizing data from Zendesk, this will take some time depending on the number of agents and contacts you have. But this will be only the first time. Toky will let you know when the process is complete.

  • Select which events Toky will log into Zendesk

  • Select how you want Toky to handle some particular events, like unknown callers, respond SMS directly from your tickets and more

  • Add unknown callers as leads: Create automatically a contact with caller's information in Zendesk when the number calling is not known.

  • Sync with my connected CRMs: If there's no information about a caller, Toky will pull it from a CRM that's already connected.

  • Respond to text messages directly within Zendesk's interface: You can respond SMS messages directly within Zendesk. It will be charged from your Toky Credit.

  • Add call events to an existing open ticket for the customer

  • Select the language that Toky will use to log the data in Zendesk

  • Toky will load your agents from Zendesk, you must match every agent with the corresponding Toky agent. Toky will use this information to log the data with the right agent.

  • Install the Chrome Extension to call your customers with a click inside Zendesk

  • Make sure, enabled is checked and click on Save Changes


  • The synchronization time will depend on the number of contacts you have in Zendesk

  • Every 10 minutes a synchronization process is performed for new contacts/leads

  • If a contact is recently added and a call is made to that contact, the call record will appear in the contact's profile at the next synchronization

  • Only Toky administrators have access to the Integration set up and Settings.

  • Although the initial configuration has to only be performed once, every agent needs the Chrome Extension to use click to call inside Zendesk. They can go to the Integrations page to install it, or go directly to this link.
