Key features

The Intercom for Zendesk app lets you see valuable user information from Intercom in your Zendesk Ticket window. This allows everyone in your company to know who they are talking to. You can easily select what information from Intercom you want to see, and add tags to your users' Intercom profile right in Zendesk to ensure you're teammates are kept informed.

You can also turn an Intercom conversation into a new ticket in Zendesk right from your Intercom inbox. This allows your team using Intercom to easily get support from their teammates using Zendesk and seamlessly forward the conversation for assistance. This integration is only available to customers on the Learn or Support Pro products or our Acquire product.
