Celebrating 100 Apps on the Freshdesk App Gallery!

Written by on January 4, 2017

The past year has been a great year for us here at Freshdesk. We hit 80,000 customers, we added some new products to our suite and also considerably improved the feature set of our flagship product – Freshdesk.

One of the things we heard the most from our customers is how key customisations and integrations are, to improve the way they do business. So, last April we launched the App Gallery – an online marketplace for apps.

We are proud to announce that our App Gallery now has a new design and includes over 100 different apps in various categories like CRM, chat, e-commerce, reporting, time-tracking and a lot more. Your favourite apps like Jira, Slack, Github, OneDrive, DropBox are all ready to be added to your Freshdesk instance at the click of a button!

Here is a quick look at some of the more popular apps on our gallery and how they help improve your Freshdesk experience.

TeamViewer

The TeamViewer app allows agents to initiate a TeamViewer session directly from the ticket page. So, agents can provide assistance to customers remotely for complicated issues.

How to get your App listed on the App Gallery

It is extremely simple to get your app listed on the App Gallery

  • Log in to the Developer Portal
  • Choose what kind of app you would like to add to our gallery
    • Freshdesk Apps – Apps that install into the Freshdesk portal using our SDK
    • External apps – Apps that integrate with Freshdesk but are installed on 3rd party sites
  • Provide the overview, description, necessary screenshots and steps to install (Make it as detailed as possible as it helps drive adoption)

That’s it! Your app will go through our review process and once approved, will be available for all the world to discover, install and use!

We have always strived to be a well-rounded product that will enable solutions for any and all business requirements and this is a big step in that direction. We have a lot more in the pipeline – paid apps, backend apps, developer events and more. Stay hooked and a fabulous 2017 to you!
