To help you integrate Front with Thankful, we’ve written step-by-step instructions. Follow along with the step-by-step instructions below.
There are two key parts to the setup: 1) provisioning a seat for Thankful in your helpdesk, and 2) integrating your helpdesk into the Thankful dashboard.
You’ll need to create a Thankful teammate. Thankful will use this teammate to reply to your customers, just like an agent.
Then, provide the Thankful teammate with access to all relevant inboxes.
Go to Integrations and click “+ Add Helpdesk Integration”, select Front from the dropdown list
Click “Notification Endpoints” and take note of the URL on the right. We’ll need this later.
Click on integrations on the left panel. Search for “Webhooks” and click “Enable Integration”. Ensure the “Enabled” switch is active, and ensure “Send Full Event Data” is disabled.
In your Front inbox, navigate to your settings page by clicking the icon at the top left and pressing “Settings”. In the left navigation panel, click on “Rules” and then “Add a team rule.” Name your rule something like “Notify Thankful”.
Under WHEN, select Inbound message, Outbound message, Outbound reply and Comment from the dropdown list.
Under IF, select Inbox is, and add all relevant inboxes one at a time, clicking “+ Add OR condition” after each one.
Under THEN, select “Send to a webhook” then paste the URL we got from the Front integration in the Thankful dashboard. Click save at the top right.
Then, on the left navigation panel click “Plugins & API”. Select API and click “New Token”. Under the “Select Scopes” dropdown list, click “Shared Resources” then “Create”. Find the token you just generated under “Front tokens” and click it. Mouse over the “Token” window, and click Copy.
Navigate back to Thankful Integrations and paste the token you just generated into “API Key” under “Front”. Click save.
Congratulations, you’ve integrated Front!
