Report Type

You can select what fields of data you want to include in a report, depending on what calls you include in the report. Select one of the following types, then set the desired entity to report on:

  • Overview. Show all calls in your system between the dates indicated (in Report Criteria):
    • Total Number of Calls
    • Total Number of Incoming Calls
    • Total Number of Outgoing Calls
    • Total Talking Time. Talk time means the time that the callers were actually talking to each other.
    • Total Call Duration. Call duration means the entire call, including time spent in an IVR or waiting in a queue.
    • Average Talk Time per Call
    • Average Call Time per Call

digits is better.

  • Completed Calls. Calls answered by a queue member.
  • Abandoned Calls. Calls in the queue, but hung up before being answered by a queue member.
