Desk.com Is Closing Down
It’s very sad that Desk.com is closing down in 2020. It means that all companies using this software will have no choice but to change it. Whenever the software will be no longer in service and supported, you may encounter the following issues:
- There won’t be any updates any longer or any new features. The support team is spending much less time fixing bugs.
- Customer service will provide limited support and will not be very responsive, unlike before when they did their best to help your business migrate.
- Data limitations may also apply. It’s not been defined yet for how long after March 2020 the access to your data in Desk.com will be provided.
- Your feedback will not reach Desk.com and will be redirected to Salesforce.
- Outdated APIs may cause delays in the migration of data from Desk.com.
