Customize the view

Customize the Queues Performance Summary view to show only certain data. For example, you can choose to show only certain columns or filter to see certain types of interactions. If you return to the Queue Summary Detail view, then your filters and column changes remain. 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. 


To use date filters to customize analytics views:

  1. Click the icon for a date filter. Queues Performance date filter
  2. Click a view option for the chosen date filter.Queues Performance date filter options

The view displays data for the selected date filter.

If the selected date filter includes the current interval, then PureCloud refreshes the view every 30 minutes to get the most up-to-date information. If you would like to update the current interval statistics, then refresh the page. If the selected date filter shows historical data (past intervals), then the view does not refresh.

  • When you apply skill or language filters, the view shows the SLA. However, if the SLA is below the target, the view does not show SLA targets and the color does not change.

Available metrics

Your customizations determine which metric columns the view shows.

Metric Definition
Queues

The name of the queue.

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 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.

Outbound

This metric represents the number of outbound interactions placed on behalf of queue.

Flow-Out

Flow-outs are interactions that enter and leave a queue without getting answered by an agent or disconnected. Flow-outs are an indication of customer service level and queue productivity. High numbers of flow-outs can indicate staffing issues or ineffective agents when used with high handle times (bullseye matching metrics).

Flow-outs can include transfers to voicemail, callbacks, and any system-driven events such as in-queue flows that transfer to another queue or external party after a certain amount of time. Flow-outs can also occur if the caller opts to exit out of the queue and return to the IVR. Offered interactions are either flow-out, answered, or abandoned interactions.

ASA

The average amount of time an interaction waits in queue before an agent answers it. This metric 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 interaction was answered.

Calculated by: Total Time to Answer / Number Answered 

Service Level %

Service level is a contact center performance statistic and is 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.

Calculated by: (Number of offered interactions - number of interactions that miss the service level target)/ (Number of answered interactions + number of abandoned interactions)*100

Note: Any interactions that leave a queue without an agent handling or transferring the interaction, including callbacks, count as flow-outs and do not count as answered within service level, even if the callback was offered before the Service Level Target has been reached.

Avg Wait

The average number of seconds that interactions are in the queue before they are routed to an agent.

Handle

The total number of interactions agents were involved in, including answered interactions, transfers, callbacks, and outbound calls. Handle increments in the interval in which the interaction ends, after the agent completes any after call work and completes the interaction. 

Avg Handle

The average amount of time agents spent handling interactions. This calculation includes talk time, hold time, and after-call work. For outbound calls it also includes dialing and contacting time.

Calculated by: (cumulative talk time + cumulative hold time + cumulative after-call work + cumulative dialing time + cumulative contacting time) / Number of interactions handled.


In these views, the Avg Talk, Avg Hold, and Avg ACW columns do not equal the Avg Handle column because only some interactions include holds. This view calculates average handle column using cumulative counts rather than averages.
Avg Talk

The average number of seconds spent interacting on a media type.

Calculated by: Total Talk time/ Count of interactions with Talk time.

Avg Hold

The average number of seconds that interactions were placed on hold.

Calculated by: Total Hold Time / Count of interactions with holds

Avg ACW

The average amount of time agents spent completing after-call work.

Calculated by: Total ACW / Interactions

Note: ACW for callback interactions is always zero. 

Avg Dialing
The average amount of time an agent spends dialing and waiting for a contact to answer during outbound interactions.
Calculated by: (total dialing time/ total number of dialing segments)
Avg Contacting

The average amount of time an outbound interaction takes to connecting to the agent’s phone. Usually, this duration is short. However, if the agent uses a remote phone the duration may be longer.
Calculated by: (total contacting time/ total number of contacting segments)

Total Handle

The total amount of time agents spend handling interactions. This calculation includes talk time, hold time, and after-call work. For outbound calls it also includes dialing and contacting time.

Calculated by: (cumulative talk time + cumulative hold time + cumulative after-call work + cumulative dialing time + cumulative contacting time)

Total Talk

Amount of time spent interacting on a media type.

Total Hold

The cumulative hold time for all interactions.

Total ACW

The total time spent in after-call work (ACW). After-call work is the work that an agent performs immediately following an interaction. Work may involve keying activity codes, updating customer databases, filling out forms, or initiating outbound contact. As a metric, it indicates the total time an agent takes to finish working on a call. If an agent must complete work before the agent can handle the next contact, then ACW is factored into the average handle time. 
Note: ACW for callback interactions is always zero. 

Total Dialing

The total amount of time an outbound interaction spends dialing a contact.

Total Contacting

The total amount of time outbound interactions take to connect to the agent’s phone. Usually, this duration is short. However, if the agent uses a remote phone the duration may be longer.

Hold 

The number of interactions with holds.

Transfer 

A measurement of the number of interactions an agent answered in one queue and then transferred. A transfer counts for the queue in which an agent answers the interaction. This measurement is calculated by the number of interactions blind transferred or consult transferred.
