Quests represent performance goals that you set up for your support agents. They help you align your support team with your business purposes, by driving them towards performing activities that benefit your brand.


Apart from earning points by resolving tickets, agents can seek to complete quests to score bonuses. Every completed quest in Freshdesk comes with a particular badge which will be showcased on the agents' profile and the points are added to their existing score. Completing tasks also help them to improve their standing in the running for monthly trophies. 


You can also create business-specific quests which could drive your agents to actively engage with your customers on forums or social media. This way, your agents will be motivated and can be incentivized by doing the task which is usually at the bottom of their to-do list as opposed to the tickets. There are 7 default quests (modifiable) available upon enabling Arcade:



You can also go ahead and set up custom quests that are more fine-tuned to your business goals. For example, you can make answering queries this Black Friday more fulfilling and fun by setting a quest and awarding badges to every agent who completes the quest.
