  • Deleted agents are not included in any version of Analytics for Contact Center before version 2.5.0

What's included in metrics

  • Queue Interactions > Summary includes Entered and Accepted Metrics
  • Detailed Reports > Interactions includes Entered and Accepted Metrics

Metrics for Rejected Interactions

There are 2 Metrics for Rejected:

  • Rejected Timeout is the calls that just timed out and did not get answered
  • Rejected is the calls that were actually rejected either by pressing the reject button, or the agents phone had been pressed for reject before the timeout occurred. 

When trying to match up Rejected figures between reports, make sure the Rejected figures selected are the same between reports. 

Filtering Agent Interactions Report

The report Agent Interactions that is looking at Queues, also includes records that do not go through a queue. You can see this by checking or un-checking No Queue from the queue filter of the report. 

Seeing All Interactions

The report Detailed Report: Interactions gives you a breakdown of all the interactions associated to a report. 



CSV data is displayed in milliseconds. To see the same value as on an .xlsx or as on the webpage, use this formula:



Metrics can be calculated differently within Analytics for Contact Center, and therefore may not match data from the historical reports within Contact Center. Analytics for Contact Center has been built to try and take into considering many ongoing interactions that the historical reports could not consider. Can affect metrics like Average Wait Time. The two systems also compute average metrics use different formulae. For Analytics you can find the formula here

Metrics are calculated as follows for various settings: 

  • Presented(also known as entered) = Accepted + Rejected +  Reject Timeout +Abandoned + Alerting  This means that Presented figure for any time slot is what entered in that timeslot plus anything that is still in the queue in the previous time slot (This will lead to the individual time slots (i.e. split down by 15/30min or 1hr), when added up, will not match the overall total at the top of the list.)

Comparing Dashboards

When comparing Dashboards, please be aware of the following information.

Troubleshooting Inconsistent Data

When things do not match, check that the reports have the same filters - such as does one include logged out agents and another doesn't? 


Also in addition to checking filters, Agent Group Activity Widget, does not update as often as Agent performance widget. Agent group Activity Widget updates every hour and therefore is historical data. Agent performance widget is expected to update every 5 seconds. 

Agent Performance vs Agent Activity


Agent Performance is configured with a Queue Resource and so will only contain agent's activity specific to selected queue. This widget can be made to show overall activity made by the agents by using the Agent Group Resource instead of the Queue resource. (Real time widget - updates every 5 seconds)

Agent Activity widget contains overall activity made by agents on all queues and outside of queues (such as direct inbound calls, direct outbound calls, consultations etc which do not go through queues at all) (Historical widget - updates 10s of minutes to an hour at a time)
