Centralize your customer communications

Integrating Textline with your Help Scout account allows all Textline Conversations to be tracked and accessed through your Help Scout mailbox. Once the integration has been set up, all Textline Conversations will automatically leave transcripts in your Help Scout mailbox. The contact's Help Scout details are then added to your Textline address book. You can also respond to messages using an auto-generated link that quickly redirects you to the correct Textline Conversation in the Textline Dashboard.
