What’s in the report?

The first thing you’ll see is your people overview

The bar chart shows the number of new people created in Intercom each day, split by whether they are currently a user or a lead. (i.e., if a person was added as a Lead on May 2, and converted to a User on May 4 they’ll be counted in the bar for May 2 as a User.)

The table on the right shows people who were created in Intercom by interacting with you, by: 

  • Starting a new conversation in the Messenger or sending an email.
  • Replying to a message or bot.
  • Reacting to a Help Center article.

It also shows those who were created with “No interaction”. This includes users and Leads created in Intercom by:

  • Logging into your app as a User.
  • Being imported with a CSV, or from another app.
  • Being created via the REST API.

Note: If a person interacts with you after they were created in Intercom as a Lead or User, this interaction won’t be displayed, but you will see it in the conversations report below.

For a more detailed view of your new Users and Leads, you can filter and segment your people list.

Next, it’s your conversations overview

This bar chart shows the number of new conversations each day, and the total difference from the previous period. On the right you can see a breakdown of new inbound conversations, and conversations initiated with outbound messages or bots. 

The next section of the report shows more detail on where and how new conversations are being started: 

  • The top pages where your customers are starting new conversations.
  • The auto messages and bots that initiate the most conversations.
