Quiq Metrics Glossary

Charts and tables of data are available throughout the Quiq user interface to provide KPIs for your organization. Below is a list of the metrics available, what they mean, and where they can be seen in Quiq.

Accept Time

The elapsed time starting when a conversation is offered to an agent, and ending when the agent accepts the offer. The average is calculated across the number of conversations accepted. If an agent re-queues a conversation such that it is offered and accepted again, the Accept Time is counted for both agents, and both are included in the average. Accept Time for Bots is ignored.

Seen in UI:

  • Messaging > Your Activity Summary for Today > Avg Accept Time
  • Reports > Current Activity > Agent Performance Today > Average Accept Time Today
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Stats > Average Accept Times

Accepted Conversations

The number of conversations accepted by the agent. This does not include accepting a transfer.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > numberOfConversationsAccepted

Active Conversations

The number of conversations that are/were in Active status. A snapshot is taken to record the number about once per minute. An average could be in fractions of conversations if conversations were active for only a portion of the scaled time units.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Current Activity > Today’s Activity > Active Conversations
  • Reports > Current Activity > Agent Performance Today > Active Conversations

Agent Status

The total number of agents in each default status (Active, Current Conversations, Inactive) during the time interval. A snapshot is taken to record the data about once per minute. If a single agent was logged in and Available for 45 minutes and Unavailable for 15 minutes, Available would show .75 and Unavailable would show .25 for that time period.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Status

Agent Time in Status

The time spent in each parent status while the agent was online - Available, Current Conversations (Available for Existing), and Unavailable. Note that time spent in a configured custom status is not available. The time spent in a configured custom status is included with the parent Status

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Status > Agent Session Metrics Export > timeAvailable/AvailableForExisting/Unavailable

Agent Unresponsive

The number of times the agents did not respond to a conversation within the configured Response Timeout period and the conversation is taken away.

  • Messaging > Your Activity Summary for Today > Unresponsive
  • Reports > Current Activity > Agent Performance Today > NUmber of Times Agent was Unresponsive
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Stats > Unresponsive Agents
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > numberOfTimesMarkedUnresponsive
  • Reports > Closed Conversations > CSV Export > numberOfResponseTimeExpirations

Agent Utilization

The utilization percentage of all logged in agents. Utilization is determined by the agent load (the number of active sessions) divided by the total potential conversations that can be handled simultaneously, that is, the total soft limit of all Available agents. A snapshot is taken to record the data about once per minute.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Queue Stats > Agent Utilization
  • Reports > Current Activity > Today’s Activity > Agent Utilization
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Stats > Avg Agent Utilization

Agent Utilization Bands

The amount of time an Agent spent in each level of utilization when he was Online. Agent Utilization is the agent load - the percentage of conversations handled compared to the number that an agent can handle based on his configured soft limit. Band0 is not-utilized - meaning the agent was not in any Active conversations. Band1 means that he was utilized between 0 up to 10%, Band2 is more than 10%, up to 20%, … Band10 is more than 90%, up to 100%. If a user is more than 100% utilized (if he is in more conversations than defined in his soft limit), the time will be counted in Band10. A conversation is counted as utilized when it is taking one of the agent’s allotted spots. This means it begins when the conversations is offered to the agent, and ends when the conversations is Inactive or Closed. The time spent in each Band is independent of the status the agent was in.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > timeInUtilizationBandX

Closed Conversations

The number of conversations that were closed. If a conversation is created in one time interval and closed in the next (e.g. created yesterday and closed today), it will be counted with the interval when it was closed. This does not include conversations that were Abandoned nor Marked as Spam. Conversations closed by Bots are counted.

Collaborators

The number of agents who are currently collaborating on the conversations. Collaborations that have currently ended will not be counted.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Current Activity > Conversations

Conversation Length

The elapsed time starting when a conversation starts and ending with the last agent response before the conversation is Closed. The average is calculated across the closed conversations. The time spent with a bot is included in the calculation, though conversations that were closed by a bot are not included. The metric is not computed until the conversation has ended.

Conversation Total

The number of conversations that were assigned to the agent during the given time period. This includes the Active conversations currently assigned to them, any they closed and any they worked before re-queueing or transfering.

Seen in UI:

  • Messaging > Your Activity Summary for Today > Total Conversations

Customers In Queue

The total number of conversations that were waiting in queue to be accepted by an agent. A snapshot is taken to record this data about once per minute.

  • Reports > Current Activity > Today’s Activity > Customers In Queue
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Queue Stats > Customers In Queue
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Stats > Avg Queue Size

Customer Message Duration

Similar to Agent Response Time, the length of time it takes a customer to respond to an agent message. It is the time between any additional customer response to an agent message, measured from the oldest agent message since the previous customer message. The average is calculated per conversation.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Current Activity > Conversations
  • Reports > Closed Conversations > CSV Export > averageCustomerMessageDuration

Declined Conversations

The number of conversations offered to an agent that they did not end up handling. This could be because:

  • The agent accepted the offer but then re-queued it
  • The agent did not accept the offer before the Invitation Timeout
  • The agent rejected the offer
  • The agent missed the Response Timer such that the conversation was taken away

Note that the “Declined” metric counts more than the number of times the agent selected the ‘Decline’ button on an offer. Use Rejected Conversations for that.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > numberOfConversationsDeclined

Marked As Spam Conversations

The number of conversations the agent marked as Spam - either before or after accepting the invitation.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > numberOfConversationsMarkedAsSpam

Messages Sent

The number of messages sent during the conversation. Inbound messages are any messages sent by the Customer. Outbound messages include those sent by the System (from Conversation Rules), by Bots or by human Agents.

  • Reports > Current Activity > Conversations
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Conversation Stats > Messages Sent
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Stats > Total Inbound Messages/Total Outbound Messages
  • Reports > Closed Conversations > CSV Export > numberOfAgent/Customer/SystemMessages

Missed Conversations

The number of conversations that were offered to the agent, but he did not accept the offer before the Invitation Timeout so the offer was taken away.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > numberOfConversationsMissed

Offered Conversations

The number of conversations offered to the agent. This does not include transfer requests.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > numberOfConversationsOffered

Rejected Conversations

The number of times the agent selected the ‘Decline’ button on a conversation offered.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > numberOfConversationsRejected

Requeues

The number of times a conversation was re-queued, including putting back in the same queue or another queue. Bot queues are counted.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > numberOfConversationsRequeued
  • Reports > Closed Conversations > CSV Export > numberOfRequeues

Response Time Duration Agent Based

The response duration between each customer to agent interaction segment. This includes the time between when a conversation was assigned to an agent and he sends a response, and the time between any additional agent response to a customer message, measured from the oldest customer message since the previous agent response. The average is calculated per agent for all interaction segments. Bot interactions are not included in the calculation.

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Stats > Average Response Times
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > averageResponseTime

Response Time Duration Conversation Based

The response duration between each customer to agent interaction segment. This includes the time between when the conversation enters a human-agent queue and the next agent response, and the time between any additional agent response to a customer message, measured from the oldest customer message since the previous agent response. The average is calculated per conversation. Bot interactions are not included in the calculation.

  • Reports > Current Activity > Conversations
  • Reports > Closed Conversations > CSV Export > averageAgentMessageDuration

Response Time Since Assignment

The elapsed time between when a conversation is first assigned to a human agent and the human agents sends the first response..

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Closed Conversations > CSV Export > InitialAgentResponseDurationSinceAssignment

Time In Conversation

The sum of the time spent in each individual conversation, measured from when the conversation starts until the last agent response before the conversation ends. Note this is not the total linear time spent in any conversation. If an agent was handling two conversations simultaneously for 15 minutes, the total time will be 30 minutes (15 minutes for each of the 2 conversations). The average is computed for all Closed conversations.

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > timeInConversations

Time Since Last Response

The time since the last agent response was sent. System responses are not counted.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Current Activity > Conversations

Transfers Accepted

The number of times a conversation is transferred from one agent and accepted by another.

Seen in UI:

  • Reports > Closed Conversations > CSV Export > numberOfAcceptedTransfers

Wait Time

The time a conversation spent waiting before an agent sends a response. The time starts when a conversation arrives to the first human-staffed queue and ends with the first agent response. First responses done by Bots are not counted in the calculation. If a conversation starts with a front-door Bot and then is transferred to an agent queue, the time from when it arrived in that queue to when the human agent sends the first response message will be counted. The average is calculated across all conversations where a human agent response was sent.

  • Reports > Historical Stats > Queue Stats > Average Wait Time
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Stats > Avg Wait In Queue
  • Reports > Historical Stats > Agent Session Export > averageInitialResponseTime
  • Reports > Closed Conversations > CSV Export > initialAgentResponseDuration

Work Time

The amount of time an agent spent working on a conversation. The time a conversation is assigned to a Bot is not included. This is calculated by summing all of the time spent in work time intervals while the conversation was Active. A work interval ends when an agent sends a response, and is started from the most recent of these activities:

  • The oldest customer message that does not have an agent response
  • The most recent message sent by this agent to any conversation
  • The assignment of the conversation to this agent
  • The conversation is reactivated (from Inactive to Active status)

Total work time will be updated at the end of each work interval segment. Average work time is not calculated until a conversation is closed. The average is calculated across all closed conversations. Additional details can be found here.
