Create, view, and/or modify information associated with one of your support agents, including their contact information (name, email, phone number), their permission level and which customer support group they belong to. You can also see if the agent is currently available to take a ticket and how long they have been available for so that you can assign tickets to appropriately.
Retrieve and update information about replies and notes associated with tickets, including the full text of the reply and the IDs of the agents, customer and support ticket associated with the conversation. This will not only allow you to integrate the full content of a support interaction into your customer support analytics but also allow Freshdesk to provide deeper analytics with regards to support agent performance.
