How it Works
The FullStory app for Help Scout shows links to the user's most recent sessions right in the ticket sidebar. The links give you one-click access to playback of the user's actions when they filed a ticket. Here's a snapshot of what it looks like in Help Scout:
Getting your FullStory API Key
Before you begin, you’ll need your secret FullStory API key to connect your FullStory account with Help Scout.
To find it, log into FullStory, click the Settings tab in your left-hand sidebar, then select Integrations & API Keys. If there’s already a key listed there, great! If not, click the Generate button to create a new key, then click Save API Key. Copy the key to your clipboard so you can paste it into HelpScout.
1. Log into your Help Scout account and navigate to the FullStory App.
2. Click the Install App button to install the FullStory widget on your HelpScout account.
3. Paste your API Key into the API Key field and select the mailboxes you'd like to connect:
4. Click Save to save these settings.
Identifying FullStory users with email address
In order for the integration to work, FullStory needs to know the email address of visitors when they come to your site. This means using either FS.setUserVars() or FS.identify() to identify users and set the
email field. We recommend setting the email address on every page load where the user is logged in. If you're only setting the email address, the call would look like this:
That’s it! When you open a ticket, you will see the FullStory widget in the Customer Profile sidebar on the right. If the user who submitted the ticket is found in FullStory, we’ll show links to their most recent sessions.
