How can I access the conversation ID in a workflow?

Hello, I am currently working on a project wherein we want to add a note whenever a customer starts a conversation. The note will contain a URL based off the conversation ID. So if a customer creates conversation 1234, we will leave a note

It does not appear that the workflow “add a note” action allows me to populate the note with the value {{}}.

Is this something that would be possible to add support for? The only workaround I can think of is to create a custom action which POSTs the conversation ID to some API endpoint which responds with the ID, store the ID as a custom attribute, and then use that custom attribute in the note. This is less than straightforward and seems more difficult than simply referencing the ID directly from the “add a note” action.

Is this something that Intercom can support?

Hi Nathan, It’s Mat from the Support Engineering Team 😀

The workaround that you’ve described is the only way to pass a conversation ID in the note. 
Can you reach out to us via Messenger in your workspace? Maybe we can come up with a better solution for your use case.
