Configuring the integration options

After setting up the Intercom integration, you'll have a few options to configure who is surveyed, when those email surveys are sent, and if they should recur, as well as whether to sync response data back to Intercom.

In the screenshot above, you'll see a few key sections for triggering surveys:

Sync Delighted responses with users in Intercom (#sync)

Check this box to sync all of your response data back to Intercom, matching respondents to the correct user based on email address.

Which Intercom users do you want to survey automatically? (#which)

This setting will determine who you survey. Here are your options for this setting:

  • None: Would result in no one being surveyed automatically. This is a great choice if you're only looking to sync Delighted feedback to Intercom
  • Anyone added to Intercom: Would result in all new Intercom users receiving a survey
  • Segments: All other listings via the drop-down menu will be your Intercom segments. Selecting any of those segments would result in any new users in a segment (i.e. users entering a segment) or active users in a segment (i.e. users with records that are updated) receiving a survey

How long after a user enters or is active in a segment should we survey them? (#delay)

This setting will determine when you survey users for the first time.

Depending on which users you plan to survey, you'll see some of the below options:

  • Immediately
  • 1 day
  • 1 week
  • 2 weeks
  • 1 month
  • 3 months

How often should we automatically re-survey these users?

This setting will determine whether to send recurring surveys to users, and if so, how often. Your options are:

  • Never
  • Every 3 months
  • Every 6 months
  • Every 12 months

Viewing Delighted feedback in Intercom

Each survey response will show in Intercom under the matching contact’s activity as a new event. You can also see the total number of times feedback has been provided, the time of the first response, and the time of the most recent response.

Can I sync feedback based on Intercom User ID instead of email?


Simply pass the property “Intercom User ID” when sending your surveys and we will use that identifier to match responses to users.

Can I automate follow-up to respondents with Intercom?


Once feedback has been synced to Intercom using the integration, you can use Intercom’s automated messages to send follow-up messages to users based who meet specific parameters (like detractors only).
