PipeDrive LiveHelpNow Live Chat Integration

May 26, 2015 | 0 comment

LiveHelpNow help desk software collects a lot of information about your customers. The integration with Pipedrive will allow for easy transfer of live chatter information into your Pipedrive account for additional marketing, business analytics, upsell and cross sell flow.


Please complete the following easy steps to integrate your LiveHelpNow live chat user info into your Pipedrive Contacts list.

  1. Login to your Pipedrive account, click on your name on the top right of the screen and then click “Settings” in the dropdown.


2. With the “Personal” option selected (1), click on “API” in the next tab (2) and then copy the API key from this screen (3).


3. Login to your LiveHelpNow account and go to Admin Panel->My Account->Integrations->Eventing API

  • Click on “Add Event”
  • Select “ChatOpened” event
  • Select “JSON” for Event Type
  • Select “POST” for Event Verb
  • No entries are needed for the HTTP Basic Authentication or Headers fields.

4. Enter the following into the payload field:




Please Note: The $$$Name$$$ label in the Payload syntax above assumes you are collecting the chat user’s name in the Pre-Chat Requested Information in LiveHelpNow mapped to “Full name” CRM field.  

The $$$Email$$$ label in the Payload syntax above assumes you are collecting the chat user’s email address in the Pre-Chat Requested Information in LiveHelpNow mapped to “Email” CRM Field.  

These settings are located at Admin Panel->Chat System->Customization->Pre-chat requirements

In order to ensure data is pushed to Pipedrive from all LiveHelpNow chat users, it is highly recommended you define the name and email address as required. This is done by selecting “yes” from the dropdown in the Required column for the email field in the Pre-Chat Requested Information settings.  



5. In the URL field, enter the following address:


Replace XXX with the API Key you copied from the Pipedrive API page in Step #2.

6. Make sure the box next to Enabled is checked, and click Add Event to save.



Your saved event should look like this:


7. You’re all done! As your chat users start new chat sessions, you should now see the info provided from their Pre-Chat Questions in your Pipedrive Contacts -> People page!
