By integrating your Docebo LMS with Zendesk, you can use a support ticketing system and the built-in Knowledge Base capability in Zendesk. When this integration is enabled in your Docebo platform, both users and Superadmins will find a new pop up within the LMS that provides quick access to Zendesk embeddable components, including a contact form, live chat, and the Knowledge Base search functionality.

Activating and Configuring the Zendesk App in Docebo

To activate the app, log into your Docebo platform as the Superadmin, then select the Apps & Features option from the bottom half of the left sidebar.
