Product Strategy: Custom Objects in Zendesk

honestly, nearly the entire Zendesk ecosystem --
  • Zendesk admins
  • Zendesk agents
  • Zendesk users who write articles
  • Zendesk users who communicate internally through ticket conversations
  • End-users: Zendesk customers' customers who have problems they need help solving 
the problem(s)
no one business is the same:
every one of Zendesk customers have unique, distinct business operations - their customers are all writing tickets for different problems, and their agents are performing different tasks using external tools to solve those problems.
a one-size-fits-all customer support tool can only go so far: agents shouldn't need to sift through 10s or 100s of ticket conversations to gather context on a customer problem. their admins shouldn't need to create custom fields multiple times to display the same relevant information on Tickets, Users, and Organizations. 
MVP-UH-OH: Zendesk's first version of custom objects was built with very little UI consideration - there are a few minimal admin screens to first get custom data setup, but none for bulk record upload -- users must know how to use APIs (aka know how to code) to get their custom data inside Zendesk.
What's worse: There is absolutely ZERO native UI for Zendesk agents to view and use Custom Objects in their Support interfaces. Even if a customer can code Custom Data into Zendesk, it's not usable unless they sign up for a few early-access beta apps. 

how might we allow Zendesk customers to hyper-customize their support tools based on their unique workflows, whether or not they know how to code?

  • reinvent Custom Objects using custom fields as a foundation: modernize the custom field creation process to allow for further enhancements like templates, and custom validation
  • highlight Custom Objects natively in UI by surfacing their relationships to Users, Tickets, and Organizations - allow Agents to view and manipulate record-level values and relationships
  • ensure steady CRUD operations for custom data - allow for import/export/sync and make custom objects a first-class system object, able to be searched through, filtered and added to lists
lessons learned:
  • oh so many. I'll come back to write this part.
