Freshworks developers can now build apps for end-user customers too
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.
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.
With the FDK version
8.2.0 or above, developers can build, install and publish end-user apps for Freshdesk.
- Update FDK to
8.2.0version or above.

- Choose Freshdesk
your_first_visitor_apptemplate or optionally, you can create the template at one command

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.
