Row options

When creating your export, now you can choose whether to export conversation entries only or also include full conversation transcripts.

  • Conversation entries - conversation list only, one row per conversation. This option will include entries that have a "message_type" of "conversation_message".
  • Message entries - full conversation message transcripts, one row per message. This option will include entries that have a "message_type" of "comment", "open", "close", "note", "snoozed", "unsnoozed", "timer_unsnooze", "assignment", "assign_and_reopen" and "participant_added".


Conversation export limits are based on your subscription. We offer plans that allow exporting all of your Intercom conversation data, no matter how many conversations it has.

Custom exports

We are always expanding the list of available metadata to meet your needs. Please get in touch if you need any particular metadata, different formatting.
