How do you add a colleague to the freshdesk app in a slack workspace ?

as you can see, I am authorised on the freshdesk app in our slack channel. My colleague who took this screenshot is not. Please advise how to authorise him?

 When he adds Freshdesk to his Slack app, he gets this:

(the settings button top right doesn’t do anything)

But when I add it to my slack app, I can see open and pending tickets and reply directly from Slack.

Please advise. Thank you

Hello @Esther,


For your colleague, is the user email address added in the slack app similar to the agent email address associated in your helpdesk? Both the email addresses used should be the same, kindly check this and let us know if it helps.


Thank you,

Thanks, I will check.

It’s most unlikely but not impossible.

I had a look at other community posts and I wonder whether the Freshdesk (Legacy) app - which does have my colleague listed as authorized - maybe this has something to do with it.

I will see if I can remove that app from the Slack workspace and see if that does anything.

Sure, Esther. 

That should not be the case. Do check and let us know if you need any further help! :)

So if the colleagues are using the same email for Slack and for Freshdesk (which they are), and the fact that they are authorised to use Freshdesk (Legacy) isn’t the cause of the problem, please can you tell me what else I could look at to determine how to authorise them to use the Freshdesk app?

Thanks for the information, @Esther.

We have raised a ticket for you and one of our support stars would get back to you via the same. 





Nobody got back to me yet.

It would be great if someone could, please.
