  • The values displayed in the Monitor section are updated automatically after every 60 seconds. To view real-time values, refresh your browser.
  • Live chats and email tickets in the Inbox are retained for a maximum of 6 months. After this period, they will be archived. While the data will no longer be accessible on the platform (active store), it will still be available on the servers (cold store) until the contract's validity expires.

1. Monitor live chat activities

The chat trends tab provides valuable insights into live chat activity and performance metrics, enabling administrators to monitor trends and optimize chat support operations effectively.

Use cases of metrics on chat trends:

Use caseDescription/Solution
Chat volume trendsAdmins can track the overall chat volume trends over time. They can monitor the total number of chats assigned, resolved, missed, and queued. This data can be found in the graphs, which provides a deep dive into chat statistics based on different date ranges.
Response time trendsMonitoring response time trends helps assess the efficiency of agent interactions with customers. Admins can track the average first response time and average reply time to identify any patterns or changes over time. This data is available in First response time and Average reply time for the last seven days.
Agent performanceAdmins can monitor the performance of individual agents by reviewing metrics such as average handling time and the number of resolved chats. On the widgets you can see average handling time for the last seven days and the total number of resolved tickets.
Customer wait timeTracking the average wait time for customers before connecting with a live agent is crucial for optimizing the customer experience. Admins can monitor the average wait time to identify any trends or potential issues. This data can be found in the graph highlighting the average wait time for chats.
Tag based chat analysisAdmins can utilize the tag filtering option to analyze specific chat tags. By selecting a tag from the dropdown, they can filter chat details and review metrics related to specific topics or categories. This allows admins to monitor chat trends and performance based on specific tags assigned during chat creation.

Filter and organize chat data

  1. Tag-based chat data filtering: Utilize the filter option to sort chat details based on specific tags. Simply choose a tag from the dropdown menu, as tags are assigned during chat/ticket creation.

  2. Channel-based chat data filtering: Easily filter chats based on different channels by selecting the desired channel from the dropdown menu. All active channels will be listed for you to choose from.

Average handling timeAverage time taken to handle chats over the last 7 days (excluding chats > 24 hours).
First response timeAverage time taken to provide the first response to chats over the last 7 days.
Resolved ticketsTotal number of chats resolved within the last 7 days.
Active ticketsNumber of chats currently assigned to you and your team, including those in the queue.

The two graphs provided offer detailed analysis of chat trends, allowing tracking for specified or custom date ranges.

InsightsDescription
Total number of chatsThe graphs depict the number of chats that are assigned, resolved, missed, and queued based on different date ranges.
Average first response timeThis metric represents the average time it takes for the first response to be provided to chats during the specified date range.
Average handling timeThe graph displays the average time taken to handle chats from start to resolution within the specified date range.
Average wait timeThis metric indicates the average time a customer has to wait before being connected to a live agent during the specified date range.
Average reply timeThe graph showcases the average time it takes for an agent to reply back to the end user's conversation during the specified date range.

Dashboard to monitor live chats

A live monitor dashboard has been specifically developed for inbox admins and supervisors to oversee latest live chats.

  • By selecting View live chat dashboard, a new page will open, presenting the 50 most recent chats. The chats in the table are arranged in descending order based on the latest received chat.

  • The table includes the following information for each chat:

    • ID: Unique identification for each chat.
    • Customer name
    • Agent assigned
    • Group
    • First response timer: Duration taken by the agent to respond to the initial message from the customer in the chat.
    • Current response timer: Duration taken by the agent to respond to the customer's most recent message.
    • Inactivity status
    • Chat duration
note

The first and current response timers continue running (indicated in red) until the agent sends a response. Once the response is sent, the corresponding timestamp will be displayed in the respective row.

  • When a new chat is assigned, a new row is appended to the table and marked with the new tag for 5 seconds, allowing for easy identification.

  • Upon resolution of a chat, the chat resolved tag is added next to the corresponding chat details.

  • You can filter the data based on different channels or agent emails. Click Apply filters to apply and Clear filters to delete the applied filters.

  • A table-level filter can be applied to monitor specific agents or group performance or inactivity status of the agent or the user. By using the filter next to the column name, you can closely observe the chats handled by a particular agent or assess a group's performance.

    When filtered by agents, all tickets assigned to that agent will be visible.

  • To read an ongoing chat (without the ability to respond), simply click on the chat ID. The chat will be displayed on the same screen, along with chat details, agent information, and chat history. You can close the chat or navigate to other chat screens.

Real time active of all chats

Real-time chat activity is displayed in a table within the Inbox. This table provides comprehensive details about all ongoing live chats. The table visualization presents all active chats in a consolidated view, displaying relevant metrics upfront.

  • Each chat ticket number is accompanied by the assigned agent's name, priority level, assigned time, duration of the chat, reply count (number of replies sent to the user), and more.

  • In case an anomaly is detected in a chat, admins have the convenience of accessing the chat details directly by clicking on the chat number. This feature eliminates the need for manual search and opens the chat on the same page.

  • By simply clicking on the chat number #, admins can quickly investigate any issues or concerns identified in the chat, enabling efficient resolution and support.


2. Monitor email ticket activities

Admins can effectively monitor the handling of email tickets by utilizing the features available in the email trends tab. This tab is specifically designed to accommodate the asynchronous nature of email communication, where conversations can span over several days before reaching a resolution.

The terms email data and ticket data are used interchangeably in this context.

Use cases of metrics on email trends:

Use caseDescription/Solution
Ticket volume and statusAdmins can track the total number of email tickets in different states such as Unassigned, Unresolved, Opened, Pending, On-Hold, and In-Progress. This information can be found in the summarized widgets.
Filtering and segmentationAdmins can filter and segment the email ticket data based on specific tags, groups, agents, and priorities. This allows them to analyze and compare performance across different segments. The filter options can be found in the dropdown menus within the email trends tab.
Agent availabilityAdmins can track the availability of agents to handle tickets. They can view the number of agents who are available, busy, or away at any given moment. This information helps in managing agent workload and ensuring efficient ticket distribution.
