How to use Olark Connector?

LeadSquared Olark Connector will help you track Chat Activities with your current and new leads. For existing leads, it helps you to track each chat conversation as an activity under Lead Activity History. If the conversation is with a new lead, the new lead is added in LeadSquared and the conversation is tracked under Activity history of that new lead.


  1. You should be Admin user of LeadSquared to access the connector.
  2. Apart from capturing Lead data and chat transcripts, you can also capture Olark Group Data and page on which chat started. If you want to capture any of both of these, you need to create corresponding custom fields first.  You may choose “Olark Chat Group” and “Chat Start Page”  as the name of the two respective fields.


To Add Olark Connector, follow these steps:

Browse to Apps > Apps Marketplace, select Olark connector and click on ‘Install’ button

olark config

Connector Setup

  1. If a chat conversation happens with a new lead, the Source will be set to “Olark Chat” by default. You can again change this configuration.
  2. Each chat conversation will be tracked as an activity in LeadSquared.  By default, we create a custom activity called “Olark Chat Conversation” for your convenience.  You can use it, or if you wish to create your own activity and use that, you may do so.

  4. [optional] You can specify a custom field to capture the page URL where chat started.

Once your settings are complete, click “Save Settings”.   You will see a message on the top on config windows:
