Well behaved browser tabs for Zendesk agents

Image from store Zendesk Quicktab
Description from store [BETA] Zendesk Quicktab attempts to make tab management a little easier by monitoring when a tab goes to Zendesk /agent link. Zendesk Quicktab will then quickly check to see if you might already have a browser tab with the agent interface open already. If you do, Quicktab will open the link there instead. Quicktab will begin working as soon as you install it. No set up needed! # What permissions does Quicktab need? The extension needs a number of permissions in order to do its job of keeping your browser tabs in check. Below is an explanation of each permission requested. ** Read and change your data on all zendesk.com sites ** The extension only ever executes JavaScript in your "zendesk.com/agent" browser tabs. The JavaScript is used to send a message to the interface that it needs to navigate you to somewhere in the application, based on the link you clicked. For example, it will tell the interface to take you to a ticket, a user profile, an admin page, etc. ** Read your browsing history ** The extension never actually looks at your navigation history, but it does monitor your navigation. We only monitor and respond to navigation events on the zendesk.com domain and never anything else. The extension also has access to all of your currently open tabs, however it only looks for currently open tabs where the URL is "zendesk.com/agent" and never anything else. It does this to see if you currently have an open agent interface in Chrome so it knows where to open an agent URL.

  • (2019-12-20) Meryl Guzman: It used to ignore filters/views. Now I can't open multiple filters/views in multiple tabs in my browser because it's treating it as a ticket.
  • (2019-10-06) Служба поддержки ekapusta.com: I did not understand what the extension is doing (references i already have and never duplicate in zendesk (
  • (2019-06-28) Andrey Kaptarenko: A lifesaver
  • (2018-06-18) James: This is a necessary app. I can't even imagine what I was doing before I had this app. Insane.
  • (2018-01-03) Dominic Shelton: As a split Agent and Zendesk Administrator, this is great, until you actually want multiple Zendesk tabs open. It would be nice to have the option to tell it to ignore a tab, or if it could detect a manual navigation and not pull it into your existing tab. I quite often want to have the settings page open in one tab and the ticket page in another, and the extension will always close the second tab and pull it into the first.

  • (2017-05-19) Morgan McCollum: This is incredible. I never knew until now that i was missing this in my life.
  • (2016-11-22) James Harvard: This is great - I cannot think of a single reason why a Zendesk agent would *not* install this extension! (That said, why has the "Zendesk Activity Stream" app gone away? It is still installed & working on my Chrome v49 (older Mac OS, so not receiving new Chrome versions for the last couple of months), but when I try to go to its page in the Chrome Extensions store I now get a 'not found' error.) Edit: https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/234430248 << Zendesk explains why the Zendesk Activity Stream extension has been withdrawn (for now)
  • (2016-11-11) David Birchmier: Fantastic! This app helps prevent inaccurate agent activity tracking for our agent management for Zendesk app - Tymeshift. Really appreciate Zendesk releasing this!
  • (2016-06-02) Justin W. Graves: LOVE IT!!!!
  • (2015-09-29) Scott Allison: This really has improved my day to day workflow 10x. Thank you! Next, can we have intent links that open your mobile apps?
  • (2015-09-18) Lukas Haselwood: This makes the Zendesk Activity Stream app 100% more useful.
  • (2015-08-21) Watchman Monitoring: This cut down the number of open tabs I have by probably 7 .. a big savings of memory. Thank you!
  • (2015-05-08) Thomas Herfen: Great
  • (2015-04-10) Jason Christenson: Took a minute to figure out what it does but it's a great add-on that makes working with Zendesk even easier. I manage two help desks and it handled the links for each directing me to the right Zendesk instance without error. Great work!
  • (2015-02-04) Alistair Roche: Woohoo! Just what I needed in my life.
