How to start anonymizing in GDPR Compliance for Zendesk

Looking for a proven tool to process data in Zendesk tickets and contacts? In such cases, we suggest GDPR Compliance to anonymize, delete and retrieve data according to European and Californian privacy protocols.

As you may know, anonymizing means hiding customer information without removing it from Zendesk. By the way, in GDPR Compliance, you can select a type of information to process and change it when you need it.

Firstly, go to Settings -> Preferences -> Anonymizing. Then, click on the section you need and select the items you want to anonymize.

More information about the process preferences you will find here.

You can launch the anonymization from several places in Zendesk. So, let’s dive into the explanation of every approach.

Anonymizing directly from a ticket

The first is Anonymizing directly from a ticket. Just open the Views tab in Zendesk and select the ticket. Click the Apps icon inside the ticket -> click on Process GDPR Requests -> select Anonymize data option -> click on Proceed.

Anonymizing from the list of all end-users in Zendesk Support

The second approach is anonymizing from the list of all end-users in Zendesk Support to process data for every single user. That means you need to:

1. Go to the Customers tab in Zendesk Support.

2. Choose the user from the search results, and click on their name to open the profile.

3. On the sidebar, find the GDPR app and click Process GDPR requests.

Anonymizing data from Ticket and Contact lists inside the app

The last method is anonymizing data from Ticket and Contact lists inside the app. Go to your GDPR  and click on Contact or Ticket views. We selected contacts.

Process User List

In general, the process is similar for Ticket lists, so follow the same steps for successful data treatment. Anonymizing inside the app allows you to deal with data both in bulk and for separate users or tickets without skipping through the pages, so we recommend it.

You can also anonymize data using a CSV file

Also, use the Eye icon to open and check the details of the exact contact or ticket.
