Customizing available statistics

The following statistics are available in Monitor:

Queue:
  • Queue Chats : New chats that have not been served by any agent. This is the sum of Incoming Chats and Assigned Chats. Applicable only if chat routing mode is set to Assigned.
  • Incoming Chats: New chats that have not yet been assigned to an agent.
  • Assigned Chats : New chats that have been assigned, but not yet served by an agent. Applicable only if chat routing mode is set to Assigned.
  • Wait Time (Average and Longest): The average and longest times visitors have been waiting for their chats to be served. Wait time is calculated as duration between the first visitor message in the chat and first agent joins the chat. Wait time will be 0 for agent initiated or trigger initiated chats.
  • Chats Missed (Last 30 minutes): The number of chats where the agent does not answer the incoming chat and the visitor subsequently leaves for the past 30 minutes.
Chat Activity:
  • Currently Served Chats: The number of chats your agents are serving right now
  • Chats Per Agent (Logged In): Average number of chats per logged in agent
  • Chats Per Agent (Online): Average number of chats per online agent
  • Response Time (Average and Longest): Average and longest time that visitors have been waiting for an agent reply. Response time is calculated as duration between first unresponded message by a visitor and next agent response.
  • Chat Duration (Average and Longest): The average and longest length a current ongoing chat. Chat duration is calculated as duration between first message in the chat (visitor message, agent message or message sent via triggers) and when the chat ends (visitor ends the chat, or last agent leaves the chat, or chat ends due to inactivity timeout).
Agent Activity:
  • Logged In Agents : The number of agents currently logged in
  • Online Agents : The number of logged in agents with their status currently set to Online
  • Away Agents : The number of logged in agents with their status currently set to Awa
  • Invisible Agents : The number of logged in agents with their status currently set to Invisible.
Satisfaction (applicable only if Chat Ratings are enabled):
  • Satisfaction (Overall): The percentage of chats rated Good over the past 30 minutes
  • Good: The number of chats rated Good over the past 30 minutes
