Frequently asked questions

How long will the Zendesk Reports app show for?

The Zendesk Reports app will stay on screen for the time duration you have set within your playlist.

How often does the Zendesk Reports app look for new data?

Zendesk Reports app updates automatically every 30 minutes.

Why is the amount of solved tickets less than what it should be?

The data for solved tickets is pulled from the last 30 days, it will include only tickets that have been created within those 30 days. Therefore if a ticket was created outside of that 30 day period but solved within it would not be included.
