The Tasks app performs the following changes within your Zendesk account only:

  • During initialization, a secure account token is set in the app's installation settings and the built-in target, updated via the resource collection API.
  • When a task is turned into a subticket using a ticket template, the Tasks app creates this ticket as defined in the ticket template.
  • When a task is linked to an existing ticket, we update the built-in ticket fields "Parent ticket ID" and "Linked task ID" on the subticket and set tags like tasks_subticket.
  • When the number of tasks on a ticket changes or the number of completed tasks changes, the Tasks app updates built-in ticket fields such as "Tasks done", "Tasks remaining" and adds or removes tags such as tasks_present, tasks_remain.
  • Additional tags are added when one or more of the tasks is converted to a subticket such as "subtickets_present".
  • When a task list is set to Automatic, a target is created to add this task list to a ticket. Updates are only carried out on targets created this way.

No further write operations are carried out by the Tasks app.
