Teachable Help Center Development

I worked on the customization of the Teachable Help Center.
The help center is fully responsive. It has a quite complex navigation sidebar on the category and article pages (content of the navigation is pulled via the Zendesk API). The table of contents on the article pages which is automatically generated depending on the article content. An integration with the article labels helps managers to easily add some options to an article (like plan availability, important notes, and more). Also, this Help Center uses the Zendesk API for search autocompletion and quick search results on the search results page.

Wrike Help Center

I work as a Zendesk developer for the Wrike company (approximately 20 hours weekly). This is the most complex help center that I've ever worked on and is for sure one of the most complex that you can find on the web.

The help center is fully responsive. It has 100% custom video page where agents can easily add tutorial/webinar videos. It works in six different languages (for now) and there are many customized features on it, depending on the user IP and browser language there is content available according to the user language, and more.

The community section has many custom things as well. The agents signature can be easily manipulated via the admin panel. There are also user signatures. There is an option for flagging users with different belts (levels). I've also made a complex option for flagging user comments (as a correct answer, very good answer, and more) which can be manipulated by administrators or agents.

The Wrike Help Center has a custom search results page with filter options (by community/knowledge base, or by categories/topics) and much more.

A Freelance Network's Customer Support

I worked as Zendesk administrator for a freelance network's customer support service. While I was working there, there were more than 500 agents in Zendesk, more than 60 different agent groups, 20 custom roles, about 900 trigger and automation items, 200 custom ticket fields, and 350 ticket views.

A daily workload was about 4,000-to-5,000 incoming requests. For sure, this was the most complex system that I've ever worked on. All of this was managed by me as a Zendesk administrator.
