Hi there!

  1. I’m looking to only have a helpdesk site. I do not wish to have the chat box on my main site. is this possible?
  2. Does Intercom offer a solution, like a forum, where members can suggest and upvote feature suggestions?

Thanks

Alex

You can forward your emails to Intercom and manage all of them from our Help Desk. For more information about email forwarding, I’d recommend that you check this article here.

Hi Larisa,

No, I meant that I would like for MY helpdesk to have a sort of a forum, for feature suggestions for my platforms.

 

Thanks

Hey @Alex Kyrlis 

Thanks for your clarification.

I’m afraid we don’t have a feature for that at the moment. You can track the requests your customers send you on conversations by adding a tag “feature request” for example.

Hope this helps!

Hi Larissa,

I’m trying to setup intercom without a chatbox on my main site.
But it will always display this:

 

Connect to Intercom to unlock the Help Desk

The Help Desk brings your inbox, tickets, and help center into one AI-enhanced workspace—so you can get more done, faster. Use a snippet of code or an integration to get started.

 

So I have to place the chatbox on my main site, then remove it?

 

Thanks
Alex

But even if I try to install the messenger, I can’t with a trial or subscription?

. Do you have a subscription that includes the Messenger?

You won’t be able to use the Messenger if you don’t have an Intercom trial or subscription.
