We want Linear to seamlessly embed into your existing workflows including customer support. Our Intercom integration makes it easier for you and your team to keep track of bugs and feature requests and interact with the customers who report them.
The Intercom integration lets you create and link Linear issues from Intercom conversations. Linked issues, their status, and assignee show up in the sidebar in Intercom. Linked conversations will show up in Linear issues as links.
G then S to go to Settings > Workspace > Integrations > Intercom
Enable the integration in Linear from workspace settings. A Linear app will show up in the Conversation details sidebar with options to create issues or link issues.
Create new issues
Create a new issue using the button from the righthand sidebar. It will bring up a form which requires a title and that you assign a team. You can also optionally include a description with additional details from the Intercom conversation, assign a priority, add an assignee or add a label.
Issues created through the integration will be sent to the Linear team's Triage Inbox if you've enabled that feature. The Intercom conversation will show up as a link attachment in the Linear issue.
Search and link issues
Click the link issue option and then search for it by title or issue ID. Linked issues will be added as links to the issue. Optionally add all or parts of the newly linked conversation to the Linear issue as a comment.
View issue details
From the Intercom conversation, you will see all linked issues in the sidebar along with the issue ID, status, and assignee. Click the issue title from the Intercom sidebar to view more details as well as options to view it in Linear or remove the link.
Anyone in Intercom can create or link Linear issues and see the issue details in the sidebar. Only Linear users will be able to view linked issues in Linear. If the person who created the issue is a Linear member, the issue will show that it was created by them and they'll see the issue under Created in My Issues. Otherwise, the issue will show it was created by Linear.
In the integration settings page, you can automate the reopening of the linked issue when it's completed, cancelled or a comment is made. The integration will post an internal note and re-open the conversation in Intercom so it's easy to follow up with customers.
Link multiple issues
You can link multiple Intercom conversations to a single Linear issue. You can also link multiple Linear issues to a single conversation in Intercom.
Optionally set the integration to post an internal note when a comment is added to Linear issues and/or when the issue is updated to any status. Intercom users will not be able to see Linear comments but can click the link to view them if they are also in the Linear workspace.
More status updates
By default, Intercom posts a note when issues are created, cancelled, or completed. Optionally set the integration to post an internal note (and re-open the conversation for the agent) whenever the issue status is updated.
