4. Complete the form, using your Zendesk administrator email address, and the API token you generated in the previous steps

Your integration with Talkative is now complete!


  • You can now take advantage of the various customisation and integration options that Talkative offers and receive interactions within your Zendesk environment
  • Talkative will generate a new Zendesk ticket for each inbound interaction

  • You can interact with your customer via the Talkative app in the right hand sidebar

  • You can add notes, and communicate with the customer via the Zendesk ticket as you normally would
  • When the Talkative interaction ends, the Zendesk ticket will be marked as pending, so the agent can either mark the ticket as solved or keep it open
  • If you have configured Talkative to send ‘name’ and ‘email’ as interaction data items, these will be set in Zendesk as the requester’s details, allowing you to keep track of customers’ existing tickets
