Live View

Live View displays the company name, current page, location, and number of open tabs of your site visitors. 

Drift Intel populates these fields with available information when possible and includes company details as well.

Conversation View

The Conversation View is, of course, where you chat with your site visitors. The integration affects this view in a similar way as the Live View. 

Drift Intel populates these fields using the IP address without requiring an email. 

We wanted the conversation to keep most of the real estate, so the righthand sidebar includes two tabs with more details on the Person and the Company. 




Playbook Targeting

Drift Intel provides Bot and Pop Over playbooks with a full list of firmographic targeting conditions. 

Drift Intel is available to Company and Enterprise plans.  
  • When you create a Chat Playbook, find the Display Conditions section under Targeting
  • Click on Display with Targeting and Add a Condition 
  • The Clearbit options are under Firmographics

Here it is all at once! 


We know the power of sending personalized greetings to targeted accounts directly from the owner. 

Drift Intel allows you to further customize these playbooks by expanding your available targeting conditions with Clearbit firmographics. 

Here it is all at once!


When you're sending a Playbook (in-app or email), you may want to send a personalized message that mentions the contact's name, company, or more.

The "Personalization" tool in a Playbook's message editor provides a quick and convenient way to tailor your message to the user it's addressing.

In the editor, edit your question, greeting, or email body and click the Personalization tag:

This will bring up a drop down of all your contact and Clearbit attributes.

Once you select one, you can customize a default text to use if the information isn't available. For example, "Hey Drift!" vs. "Hey there!

Here's what it looks like! 

If you're technical and want to look into this a little bit more, here's the library we use for these tags.
