Is there a trial version of Round Robin?
After registration, we offer a 30-day trial period with the Enterprise plan automatically. So you can evaluate all the benefits of the app and make sure whether it is suitable for your workflow.
Is each Round Robin project need to be paid separately?
Yes. But multiple projects are needed only if you are using Round Robin with multiple Zendesk subdomains. If you a using one Zendesk subdomain you can configure multiple queues (one for each view) in a single Round Robin project.
Is the total cost depends on the number of agents?
The total cost does not depend on the number of agents we provide the unlimited number of agents for all paid plans. For example: Let's you want to use PLUS plan functionality. The total cost will be $69/mo regardless of the number of your agents.
What limits are there?
All limits are described in the article Limitations
What is the Zendesk API calls and how can I affect to its number?
Round Robin works with your Zendesk via Zendesk API. It receives tickets from the specified views then assigns them to agents at the given time intervals.
The number of Zendesk API call depends on the number of views you processed and the run time intervals. To optimize Zendesk API usage you can decrease the number of views (merge several into one) or increase time intervals.
Additionally, Zendesk API returns tickets from view page by page. One page includes 100 tickets. The more tickets in view the more API call to retrieve. You can exclude already assigned and closed tickets from the view. Usually, it allows dramatically decrease the number of Zendesk API calls.
What will happen if I exceed the limit?
If it is a one-time insignificantly excess we'll pretend that nothing happened. If this occurs for several consecutive months or is one-time significantly excess we'll suggest you optimize the app usage or upgrade your plan.
How can I see the expiration date of my trial?
You can not see it in the Round Robin interface. A few days before your trial ends you will have been notified about this by email.
Is there a contract with quarterly payments?
No. We provide monthly or annual (with 10% discount against monthly price) payments.
Some features are not available on some plans. What will happen with these settings when I subscribe?
Nothing will happen, you will not be able to run your queue until you configure the project in accordance with the plan.
We are wondering if you have non-profit pricing?
We have no special pricing for non-profits.
How the upgrade price is calculated?
The first payment for the new subscription will be decreased by the residue amount you paid for your current subscription. So you can upgrade your subscription at any time (don’t have to wait the full year or month).
