To enable this in your mobile app, make sure you've prevented reopening in your Messenger settings and install version 7.1.0 or higher of Intercom's mobile SDKs.

See how changes to your Chats, Posts, and Push messages affects performance over time📈

Introducing message versioning for chats, posts, and push messages! 🎉 See how changes you’ve made to your messages impacts performance over time.

Any changes to the content, audience, goal, or schedule of a chat, post, or push message that are set live are now stored as their own version in Intercom, along with the name of the editor and the date/time the changes were made.

To see the version history of a message, simply click the version number at the top of any chat, post, or push message, and you’ll see all versions in the ‘Message history’ sidebar.

Selecting a version will populate the content and performance of that specific version.

Use this new data to understand what performs well, and what doesn’t, so you can continue to optimize your messages.

Note:

  • Any time you edit the content, audience, goal, or schedule and set the message live, it will be stored as a new version
  • Version history will not be retroactively applied to your existing messages. You will only be able to see versions for messages that are created or edited and set live after June 10th, 2020

Two updates for a more customizable and flexible Messenger launcher 🔍🎨

Now, you can customize the icon on the Messenger launcher to match your logo for brand consistency across your website or product.

When a custom logo is not in use, the Messenger launcher icon will now change based on whether a customer can start a conversation with your team. Customers who only have access to self-serve support, defined by targeting criteria or settings you've configured, will see a search icon instead of a chat icon on the launcher. This sets better customer expectations if they won’t be able to reach a teammate immediately.

Introducing improved single sign-on and easier teammate onboarding ⚙️🔒

Streamline workspace setup and teammate onboarding with new single sign-on (SSO) configurations, Okta and OneLogin integrations, Just-in-Time provisioning, and more!

Faster and simpler SAML SSO setup

New self-service settings make it easier for admins to configure SAML SSO and manage approved login methods for teammates. The new configuration works for most Identity Providers. We also built two out-of-the-box integrations for Okta and OneLogin to make configuration with those providers even easier.

Automate Intercom account creation and invites with Just-in-Time provisioning

If enabled during SAML SSO setup, teammates can create accounts and redeem workspace invites seamlessly and securely with one-click.

Visit our help doc to learn more about configuring SAML SSO or Just-in-Time provisioning.
