4. A web-phone (an icon with Zadarma logo) to make and receive calls is placed in Zendesk interface in the top right corner. During the first call, access to audio-equipment has to be enabled in a pop-up window of your browser. Incoming calls from Zendesk clients are transformed into tickets; a new ticket is created at the beginning of each call and call recording is attached to the ticket after the call ends.

Also, if you are not near your computer and Zendesk is not open, you can make and receive calls via an app (we recommend Zadarma for iOS, Android) or a regular IP-phone. Call information will be displayed in the helpdesk interface.
