Zendesk Resolve Trigger

In order to resolve a Textline conversation after solving the corresponding Zendesk ticket, you’ll need to add and update triggers in Zendesk. These changes will sync Textline and Zendesk resolutions so that if you were to solve a ticket in Zendesk, the corresponding conversation in Textline would be marked as resolved as well. This helps with not having to toggle between both platforms to perform this action.

We also have a help center article on how to set up a Zendesk trigger so that you can send Textline messages via the Zendesk UI.
