Key features

    • The integration provides businesses with detailed call reporting within Zendesk, allowing them to monitor call volume, average call duration, and other metrics.

    • With the integration, 3CTEL can automatically log all call details in Zendesk, including call duration and recordings.

    • Generate an API key from Zendesk account. This key is used to authenticate the integration and allow 3CTEL to access Zendesk data.
