Connect Attentive with Gladly to enable your customer support team to directly answer customers' text message responses. With this integration, all messages received from a customer through SMS are forwarded to your customer support team queue in Gladly.

Step 1. Collect Gladly information

Log in to your Gladly account and generate an API token for Attentive. Then, copy and save this token in a safe location.

Next, go to your Gladly inbox and collect the inbox ID. To do so, complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to your Gladly account.
  2. On the Home page, select the inbox for which you want Attentive to create tickets.
  3. Copy and save the Inbox ID after home/team/ in the URL. For example, in the following image, lcGvlKyRQxKqK1rYhYOvRA is the inbox ID for the Attentive Test Inbox.

Note that you can create a Gladly inbox specifically for Attentive.

After collecting the API token and inbox ID, follow the next steps to complete the integration.
