Customization options

Here are all the available options for Zendesk and Trello:

Sync Zendesk public comments

By default, only internal notes will sync but you do have the option to sync the public replies also. Here's how it works.

Filter by tag or assignee

Unito will sync all tickets and cards by default but you can customize your workflow by syncing just some of them (complete guide).

Filter by ticket type

You can filter which type of tickets you want to be synced to Trello (complete guide).

One-way sync

You can choose to sync only from Zendesk to Trello or Trello to Zendesk. Here is how it works.

Map Zendesk fields to Trello custom fields
