Feature Details:
The Freshsales app for Freshdesk lets your support and sales teams work in sync with each other. Agents can easily access information - leads, contacts, deals, and accounts - from Freshsales for better context regarding customer problems. This will allow support agents to tailor their responses better and ensure their answers provide more value to the customers.

Agents will be able to view five of the most recent deals associated with a customer right next to their ticket. Freshsales users will also be able to see linked tickets in the Contacts, Leads, Deals, and Accounts page. The tickets linked to these Contacts, Leads, Deals, and Accounts will also have the option 'View in Freshdesk' that will lead them directly to the ticket details page provided they have the required Freshdesk credentials.


Agents can also create a lead/contact directly from Freshdesk without switching to Freshsales.

When you select the Account option in the 'Requester Info' section of the Freshsales app, you will be able to see information about the company as well as the deals associated with it. Only five (5) open deals will be displayed at any time. They will be sorted by 'Expected Close Date' with the nearer date being first. If a customer does not have 5 open deals, then the app will display all the open deals the customer has and will display closed deals in the remaining slots. The closed deals will be sorted by 'Most recent closed date'.



You can convert a sales query from a customer on a Freshdesk ticket to a lead/contact in Freshsales, by clicking on "create lead/contact" option within the app.

Using The App:
Once you’ve enabled the app on Freshdesk, when a customer raises a query, if they are a lead or contact in Freshsales, you will see information about them in the Requester Info Section.


When you select the Account option in the 'Requester Info' section of the Freshsales app, you will be able to see information about the company as well as the deals associated with it.

If a customer does not have 5 open deals, then the app will display all the open deals the customer has and will display closed deals in the remaining slots. The closed deals will be sorted by 'Most recent closed date'. If none of the existing deals are appropriate to link to the ticket, you or your agents can create one. The Admin also has the option of disabling the 'Create/Link a Deal' option, in which case agents will only be able to view deals but not create or link them.



Note: 
You can link a deal to as many tickets as you require. However, each ticket can be linked only to one deal. The 'Link Ticket to Deal' option will be available in the Freshsales app in the right-hand sidebar of the Ticket Details page.
