One new feature super-user Travis suggested to us was the ability for people using trees to send notes back to the authors. For Travis’s company, they wanted a way for their Call Center agents to easily comment on any node, and have that feedback reach the authors of the tree. This seemed like such an obviously beneficial idea that we re-prioritized to make it happen.
The result is a subtle comment bubble, which can appear at the bottom right-hand-side of any tree:
This quick video shows how it works:
How the Feedback Loop Works
Both Zingtree hosted end-user trees and internal agent (Call Center) trees can use this feedback feature. To illustrate, we’ll use the Zingtree Agent Portal as an example.
Here’s how a tree appears, showing the comment bubble:
When an agent clicks the comment bubble, they get a simple pop-up feedback form:
When feedback is sent, all authors get an email notification:
Instead of authors automatically receiving feedback, you can specify an email address instead where all feedback is to be delivered. You can do this via the Settings tool, in the Agent Feedback tab:
You can see all nodes with comments from Overview. They have an icon like this:
Finally, when you Edit a Node, you can see all comments, like this:
Clicking the red button lets you respond to a commenter (if they left an email address), and also delete the comment.
Comments for End-User Support Trees
This feature is not limited to Call Centers. If you’re using Zingtree for end-user support, you can enable the comment bubble in Zingtree-hosted trees. Use the Advanced Hosting Options from Publish, Zingtree Hosting, or simply add this to the URL for your tree:
