Setting Up Your Help Center Access Settings In Zoho Desk

In this Zoho Desk tutorial, Landon guides you through the process of setting up the basics of your Zoho Desk Help Center. The Help Center serves as a self-service portal for customers, allowing them to submit tickets, access knowledge-base articles, and engage in community discussions. Here’s a summary of the key steps covered in the tutorial:

  1. Accessing Help Center Settings: Go to your Zoho Desk account and navigate to the Help Center settings. You can customize the appearance, domain, permissions, and more from this section.
  2. Customizing Your Help Center: Customize your Help Center by adding your company logo and favicon to make it visually appealing. You can also choose a custom domain if needed.
  3. User Permissions: Configure user permissions, such as whether customers can sign up for the Help Center, whether they can view tickets from other users in their account, and whether registration is required to access the Help Center.
  4. Community Settings: If you want to enable a community section in your Help Center for customer interactions and discussions, you can adjust the community settings. This allows customers to participate in forums, discussions, and more.
  5. Rebranding Help Center: Customize the name and URL of your Help Center to match your branding and domain.
  6. Languages: You can add multiple languages to your Help Center to make it accessible to a broader audience.
  7. Email Templates: Set up email templates for various interactions, such as invitation, activation, and deactivation of customers. Customize these templates to match your brand’s tone and style.
  8. User Management: Manage user accounts, including approving pending users, labels, and groups. User groups help in categorizing users based on their roles and access levels.
  9. SEO and Analytics: Configure SEO settings for better search engine visibility and integrate Google Analytics for tracking user interactions.
  10. Sales IQ Integration: If you use Zoho Sales IQ for chat support, you can enable integration with your Help Center.
  11. Knowledge Base and Community Configuration: Set up categories, forums, topics, and discussions in the community section, allowing customers to engage and seek help from your community.
  12. Ticket Submission: As a user, you can sign up for the Help Center, receive an invitation, and submit a support ticket. You can also check the status of your tickets.
