The basic Zendesk setup

Once you have created a new account, Zendesk will present you a button labeled Get Started. If clicked, it will guide you through the following steps:

  1. Set up email.
  2. Invite your team.
  3. Set up Help Center.
  4. What's next?

This is meant to give you a quick overview of Zendesk's core functionality and point you into the right direction for further customization. While the first few steps are of little significance to us, step 4 provides us with a great overview over the basic elements of Zendesk. We will use this overview to quickly cover the basics and to freshen up our memory about the basic Zendesk setup.
