    Works exactly as expected, reduces context switching


    None that I've seen yet, but it's only been a day!

    It's pretty funny -- I work on a Slack integration, and we used to have a tool built in (called Operator!) that allowed customers to ping us directly in Slack when they needed help. After we started using Intercom, that became basically obsolete, but I really missed having that interaction actually in Slack, where I spend 95% of my day (instead of switching over to the web). Now that Intercom lets us have customer conversation right in Slack (and qualify and close them too) I pretty much have everything I need. Great integration, what a pleasant surprise!

    • Easy setup

    • Intuitive, feels natural.

    • Avoids context switching

    • Actionable notifications in Slack, as they should be!


    • Creates a new channel for each conversation

    • Wish there was a "notes" feature so our team could discuss privately like in Intercom

    This is a great Slack integration. It really does bring the power of Intercom into Slack in a way that's natural and functional. It keeps the conversation in sync between Intercom and Slack as well so that you and your team can float between tools, desktop and mobile. 👏

Um... this looks heavily "inspired" by Chatlio, even down to the channel naming.

@jeberly First thought we had when seeing this. I'd use a word stronger than "inspired". There are so many interesting ways to do Slack integration, it feels lazy.
