Splashtop has integrated with Zendesk to enable your technicians to remotely support your users using the Splashtop SOS service, right from within a Zendesk ticket.
For a limited time, the integration is included in the select SOS services (excludes SOS lite, legacy services)
Note: IT managers/admins, if you're on the Global Stack with an SOS Trial please contact support to enable integration. SOS Unlimited trials can enable integration without support assistance.

How do I connect within Zendesk/Splashtop?
You can easily initiate a remote desktop connection to your users’ computers to provide support, directly from within Zendesk tickets. It'll take only a few clicks to start a session. After the support case ends, a record of the remote session is automatically inserted into the ticket. Your users do not need to have any software pre-installed for all this to work.
- Login to your Zendesk account and navigate to your ticket
- Find Apps section and open Splashtop app, then click Create an SOS download link.
- Click on Insert download link into ticket comment to insert the download link to the SOS app.
(You can also just click icon to copy and share using other means.)
- End user clicks on the SOS download link in the ticket and run the SOS program
- Support agent on Zendesk clicks on the Connect button to start the remote connection.
Note: Must have the Splashtop Business app installed and logged in.
How do I check session logs?
- Once you click the Close the support case button in the app, the session logs and file transfer logs will be automatically inserted into the ticket as private comments.
