In this guide, we'll go through how to integrate your AI Assistant into Intercom. Here's an overview of what we'll cover:

  1. Preparing the Intercom Account for integration
  2. Integrating Quickchat AI with Intercom
  3. Adding the Quickchat AI Assistant to Intercom

Prepare your Intercom Account

Create an Intercom User dedicated to your AI

To initiate the integration process, you’ll need to designate an Intercom user who will be serving as the persona for AI Assistant. Our AI will be replying as this user to all conversations that are assigned to it.

To ensure a seamless experience, we recommend creating a separate user named ‘Quickchat AI’ to handle automatic replies. This approach provides flexibility of choosing when the AI Assistant is active and lets your team take over the conversation by assigning it to a different team member. Here’s how to do that:

  1. Create the Quickchat AI User: Log in to your Intercom account and create a new user with the name 'Quickchat AI.'
  2. Define Permissions/Access: Configure specific permissions and access rights for the 'Quickchat AI' user to ensure it functions correctly.

Once you've completed this setup, you're ready to move on to the next step.


Ensure that you are logged in as dedicated User while proceeding with the next steps of integration.
