Intercom Chat Integration

Intercom is a popular web chat service that you add to your website to interact with visitors to your site. Using Zapier, you can integrate Intercom with WhatConverts and get your chat information with marketing data on your WhatConverts dashboard.

    Note: If you haven't added your WhatConverts tracking script to your website, add your tracking script. If you are using the WhatConverts WordPress Plugin, you will want to deactivate the plugin and place your WhatConverts Tracking Code above your Intercom Integration Code

1On your website where you have placed your Intercom Javascript Installation Code, replace your Intercom Basic Javascript for Website Visitors Installation Code.

var cookie = oqhaqzwnbjgcpycneryg('wc_client');
    var source='',medium='',campaign='',content='',keyword='',gclid='',landing_page='',user_id='',msclkid='';
if (cookie) {
    var cookie_parts = cookie.split('+..+');
    if (cookie_parts[0])
        source = cookie_parts[0];
    if (cookie_parts[1])
        medium = cookie_parts[1];
    if (cookie_parts[2])
	campaign = cookie_parts[2];
    if (cookie_parts[3])
	content = cookie_parts[3];
    if (cookie_parts[4])
	keyword = cookie_parts[4];
    if (cookie_parts[5])
	gclid = cookie_parts[5];
    if (cookie_parts[6])
	landing_page = cookie_parts[6];
    if (cookie_parts[7])
        user_id = cookie_parts[7];
    if (cookie_parts[8])
        msclkid = cookie_parts[8];
window.intercomSettings = {
    app_id: "********",
    source: source,
    medium: medium,
    campaign: campaign,
    content: content,
    keyword: keyword,
    gclid: gclid,
    landing_page: landing_page,
    user_id: user_id
    msclkid: msclkid
<script>(function(){var w=window;var ic=w.Intercom;if(typeof ic==="function"){ic('reattach_activator');ic('update',w.intercomSettings);}else{var d=document;var i=function(){i.c(arguments);};i.q=[];i.c=function(args){i.q.push(args);};w.Intercom=i;var l=function(){var s=d.createElement('script');s.type='text/javascript';s.async=true;s.src='*******';var x=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];x.parentNode.insertBefore(s,x);};if(w.attachEvent){w.attachEvent('onload',l);}else{w.addEventListener('load',l,false);}}})();</script>

Note: Replace ******* with your Intercom App ID. You can find your App ID inside of your Intercom Javascript Installation Code

2Go to Zapier and "Make a Zap". Select "Intercom" as your Trigger App and "New Closed Conversation" as the Trigger.

    Note: As you continue through setting up Intercom in Zapier, you will be prompted to follow Zapier's instructions to log into Intercom.

Test your Trigger step on your website by starting and ending a chat, click "Test and Review" to pull in sample chats. Click the "gray down arrow" to review the chat and test to make sure you're using the most recent chat that ended. Click "Done Editing".

3Add a Search Step by clicking "+" and selecting "Intercom" as your Action App in Step 2. Under the Search options, select "Find Lead" and click "Continue". Under Search Mode select "ID" and under Search Value select "User ID". Click "Continue". Test your step and, once successful, click "Finish".

4Add a third Action Step and select "WhatConverts" as your Action App. Select "Create Lead" as the Action then click "Continue". Select your WhatConverts account to integrate with Intercom.
