πŸ“£ EAP for End-user apps in customer-facing portals

Freshworks developers can now build apps for end-user customers too :tada:

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Early Access Program for End-user apps, where developers can build apps for customer-facing portals in Freshdesk.

The Early Access Program is an opportunity for participating developers to try out, collaborate, test, and validate their use cases on our sprouting developer platform.

As a part of this program, the developer will get their Freshdesk portals enabled to install and run End-user apps.

How to join the EAP

Visit to learn more and be sure to enroll in the EAP program. We will enable the Freshdesk account to build/use End-user apps and notify you shortly.

How to create an End-user application

With the FDK version 8.2.0 or above, developers can build, install and publish end-user apps for Freshdesk.

  1. Update FDK to 8.2.0 version or above.
  2. Run fdk create in an empty folder
  3. Choose Freshdesk
  4. Select your_first_visitor_app template or optionally, you can create the template at one command
    fdk create –products freshdesk –template your_first_visitor_app.
  5. Execute fdk run

Head over to the customer portal and append ?dev=true to view the app running in the appropriate placeholder.

Also, explore our Sample apps which are built to introduce end-user apps, demoing a few features introduced for end-user apps.
