How do I integrate Guru with Zendesk?
There are multiple ways to integrate Guru with Zendesk:
In the Guru Web App, select “Team Settings” from the dropdown menu. Then, select “Knowledge Sync” in the left sidebar, and click “Sync a New Collection” and “Zendesk Sync.” After authorizing the account, Guru will allow you to set a Collection within Guru to house the Zendesk Knowledge. You’ll then be able to view your Zendesk Articles as Guru Cards in Guru’s Knowledge Tab.
AI Suggest for Zendesk Support and Chat
To setup AI Suggest, all you need to do is go enable AI Suggest via the Team Settings button. Then, select Zendesk as the app to turn “On” Authorization. You have the option to limit which knowledge AI Suggest pulls from, as well as which users you’d like to have access.
Any user can setup Knowledge Triggers by first opening the Guru extension and selecting Knowledge Triggers. Then, you’ll “Assign a Card” to surface when certain key words are present in the field. When this happens, the Guru extension icon will flash a purple icon in the bottom right with the specified Card.
