With Chameleon's Intercom integration, you can coordinate your in-app efforts with Intercom messaging and data for better user journeys. Also, you can leverage Intercom as an 'Extension' and launch your documentation, or support chat from Chameleon Experiences.
This way, you can better understand the impact of your guidance and fill in the gaps in users' knowledge with the right help resources.
Availability & Usage
🔐 Available for all plans
⚙️ Enable from the Dashboard
With our Intercom integration, you can enable users to find help in your product, by leveraging your help center, or support chat. Go deeper into users' behaviors and understand how your documentation and in-app Experiences impact your overall adoption.
You can see if users engage with your in-app Experiences before reaching out to your support team. This way, you can fill in the gaps with resources or get in touch with users to help them succeed.
You can use Intercom as a data destination (to send Chameleon data to Intercom) or as an Extension in Chameleon (to launch your Intercom Help Center or Messenger in-app).
You can connect your Intercom integration and link your help center in a few clicks. Search the integrations page in your Dashboard for Intercom to enable the integration first.
Below, link your Help Center by pasting the URL on the integration page
To receive Experience data in your Intercom account, enable the toggle. This will automatically begin sending data to your Intercom account.
You can also add your Intercom help center to HelpBar and enable users to access your entire documentation in-app.
You're all set to launch Intercom from your Chameleon Experiences and send that data to your Intercom account!
Leverage your Experience data to understand what's missing from your in-app guidance. For example, if users dismiss an onboarding Tour and ask for help, that's an indication that you should iterate on your Tour. In Intercom, you'll see the following events:
Chameleon Started Tour / Microsurvey
Chameleon Completed Tour / Microsurvey
Chameleon Button clicked Tour/ Tooltip/ Microsurvey
Chameleon item Launcher clicked
Event properties sent as part of these events include the Experience name, URL, and others (e.g. Step number) where relevant.

Providing more context when users need help
launch your Intercom messenger
open your help center
With the chat option, you'll just select that and each time a user clicks your button, your Intercom chat will pop up to provide help.
With the help center option, you can choose to either:
launch a specific query in your Help Center - enter a keyword that will return relevant articles;
or launch a specific article or section - enter the link of a Help doc or section in your Help Center.
Once you set this, every button click will also open your help resources in a new tab.
