Data Migration

Migrate your helpdesk into Deskpro with ease

Helpdesk migration might seem like a nightmare - but with Deskpro, migrating from your current solution is painless and simple. Whether you currently use an email provider like Outlook or another helpdesk software, we have you covered.

Secure imports, every time

Your data is important and needs to be kept secure. We know that changing the helpdesk software your business uses can require careful consideration.

With Deskpro, you have the option to migrate using one of our Do It Yourself options, or we can manage the migration for you, headache-free.

Do it yourself options

If you want to import your data yourself there are a number of options you can choose from.

Helpdesk Data Importer

Deskpro's Helpdesk Importer Tool helps you import data from other providers. This currently includes Zendesk, Kayako, and others. We plan on expanding these to include even more helpdesk systems.

CSV Customer Importer

If you have an existing list of customers (in an external CRM application, customer database, legacy helpdesk or a spreadsheet) you can import that list into Deskpro using the Comma Separated Values (CSV) format.

Import via API

Using Deskpro's REST API, you can move data between an external source and your helpdesk. This is the most flexible method but requires software development knowledge.

Assisted Migration

Let Deskpro handle your import for you

If you don't have a development team or would prefer to hand off the project to helpdesk experts, then our Technical Support team here at Deskpro can help.

Simple and Effortless Migration

Choose the data that you wish to migrate across. No need to get your development team involved. Pick what you want to keep, and let us do the rest.
