Create Pivotal Tracker ticket from Help Scout conversation (bookmarklet)
// Install:
// Add your own Pivotal Tracker API token and project ID into the code below
// Optionally (if you've added Help Scout as an external integration) fill in the integration ID - you can see this in the URL
// when you edit the Help Scout integration in Pivotal.
// Then copy the code into a new bookmark
// To use:
// When you are viewing a Help Scout conversation select the text you want to appear as the Pivotal Tracker story (optional - if you
// don't do this the story will be "See"). Then click the bookmarklet and a new
// story will be created in Pivotal. The response from Pivotal will be shown in a small window in the top right of the Help Scout page.
