Helpshift’s UserID: Serve Returning Customers Easily

Here at Helpshift, we always have your support team’s efficiency in mind. Our latest enhancement allows your Admins’ and Agents’ workflow to be even more streamlined with the ability to link the UserID on the Helpshift Issue directly back to your company’s internal database.

We understand the importance of being able to easily look up your user’s information when handling various issues like refunds or escalations. Admins and Agents want to easily navigate to that internal dashboard from the Issue Detail page to get all necessary information to reply and resolve the Issue in a timely manner.

Prior to the UserID being clickable, Agents would have to copy the UserID inside of their Helpshift Dashboard and open the user’s profile in their company’s internal dashboard. The process is now reduced to just one click, saving you time on each Issue.

How it Works:

  1. Click on the Settings Tab in your Admin Dashboard
  2. On the left hand column under App Settings, click on the App Name which you would like to establish the User ID for
