View detailed metrics about the length of abandons in a queue. See how many calls customers abandoned at certain lengths of time. For example, you can see how many abandoned calls happened after 6 but before 20 seconds. 

To open the Abandon Intervals Metrics view:

  1. Click Performance > Queues
  2. From the Queue Performance Summary view, select a queue. The queue’s detail view opens.
  3. From the Queue Performance Detail view, click the Abandon % statistics in the summary row. The Abandon Intervals Metrics view appears. 
  4. To see the most current data, click Refresh . This view does not update automatically. 
  5. To save the view with your filter and column settings, click Save .
  6. To export the data in the view, click Export .

Notes:
  • You cannot see the Abandon Interval Metric view for a Queue Performance Detail view that shows aggregate data for a group of queues
  • Abandoned calls greater than or equal to the lower limit but less than the upper limit of a column’s interval appear in that column. For example, a 6-second call and a 19.5-second call both appear in a 6–20 second column, but a 20-second call appears in the 20–40 second column. 
  • The default length of the Short Abandon column from 0 to 6 seconds. The Short Abandon column is the first interval set in the admin configuration view.

Customize the view

Customize the view to show only certain data. For example, you can choose to show only certain columns or filter by date or agent skills. You can also save your filter and column settings as a saved view to quickly switch between different data of interest in the same view. 

Any filters applied in the Queue Performance views remain active in the Abandon Intervals Metrics view. 

Administrators can also adjust the length of time for each column. For more information, see Configure abandon intervals

Available columns

Your customizations determine which metric columns the view shows.

Column Description
Offered

The number of interactions routed into the queue for an agent to answer. Offered interactions are either answered, abandoned, or flow-out interactions. 

Answer %

The percentage of offered interactions that an agent answered. 

Calculated by:  (Answered / Offered) * 100

Answered (in Answered % column)

A measurement of the number of assigned ACD interactions answered by an agent in a given period. Answered increments when the agent is the first to connect to the interaction.

Abandon %

The percentage of offered interactions in which the customer disconnected before connecting with an agent. The abandon rate can identify queues that require extra staff to handle interactions in a timely manner.

Calculated by: (Abandoned Count / Offered Count) * 100

Abandoned (in Abandoned % column)

The number of interactions where a customer disconnects in an ACD queue before connecting with an agent. For example, the customer hangs up before an agent answers, or the system disconnects the interaction.

Service Level %

Service level target is a contact center performance statistic expressed as “X percent of contacts answered in Y seconds.” For example, a goal of answering 80% of voice calls within 20 seconds provides a service level target of 80/20. You can set the service level target for each media type in a queue. Analytics uses this service level target to calculate whether you are within the service level % defined by your service level agreement (SLA). For more information about setting the service level target, see Create queues or Edit or delete queues.

The service level percentage is the percentage of interactions that meet your contact center's service level target. Calculated by: (Number of answered interactions - number of answered interactions that miss the service level target) / (Number of answered interactions + number of abandoned interactions)*100

Admins can also choose to include flow-outs in the calculation. For more information, see Configure the service level calculation. If you include flow-outs, the service level calculation is: (Number of answered interactions - number of answered interactions that miss the service level target) / (Number of answered interactions + number of abandoned interactions+ number of flow-outs)*100
Note: Any interactions that leave a queue without an agent handling or transferring the interaction, including callbacks, count as flow-outs. Callbacks do not count as answered within service level, even if the callback was offered before the Service Level Target was reached.

Admins can also choose to include short abandons in the calculation. For more information, see Configure the service level calculation. If you include short abandons, the service level calculation is: (Number of answered interactions - number of answered interactions that miss the service level target) / (Number of answered interactions + number of abandoned interactions - number of short abandoned interactions) *100.

Short Abandon % 

The percentage of offered interactions in which the customer disconnected before the amount of seconds set for short abandon and before connecting with an agent.

Calculated by: (Short Abandon Count / Offered Count) * 100

The default short abandon time is less than six seconds, though administrators can set the short abandon time. For more information, see Configure abandon intervals.

Max Abandon

The maximum time of an abandoned interaction for the selected interval.

Min Abandon

The minimum time of an abandoned interaction for the selected interval.

Avg Abandon

Average time to abandon.

ASA

The average amount of time an interaction waits in queue before an agent answers it. This metric does not include interactions that agents do not answer. ASA is directly associated with service level and provides insight into the customer service your company provides. ASA is recorded in the interval in which the agent answered the interaction.

Calculated by: Total Time to Answer / Number Answered
