  • Service Level: The percentage of calls answered within the threshold time (default is 30 seconds). The real-time analytics dashboard will display No Calls during the call queue's closed hours (when there's no inbound calls). The Service Level is calculated as all calls received in less than the threshold (default is 30 seconds), divided by all calls answered or completed by the queue members. 
    Note: You can customize the threshold used to calculate the Service Level in the real-time or historical dashboard.
  • Total Inbound Calls: The total number of inbound calls currently in the call queue.
  • Unanswered Calls / Unanswered Calls (OUT) / Unanswered (OUT): The outbound call from the call queue was not connected to the receiving party. For example, receiving party was busy or rejected the call. The receiving party may also have settings that blocked the call.
  • Waiting Calls / Waiting Calls (IN): Inbound calls that haven’t been answered and are waiting in the queue.
  • Waiting Time: The amount of time that an inbound caller spent in the queue waiting for a member to answer their call.

Member availability KPIs

Only admins can view the following KPIs in the real-time dashboard. These are also known as Call Status in the historical dashboard.

  • Available: The total number of members who are available to receive call notifications from the call queue. This statistic is not based on presence status. This statistic is calculated using the following:
    • Queue members currently operating during their business hours
      Note: Call queue admins can control if members can set their own business hours.
    • Minus number of members in an active or held call
    • Minus number of members that have opted out of receiving calls from the selected call queue
    • Minus number of members in the wrap-up time
  • Active Call: Members on inbound calls that were routed by the call queue.
  • On other call: Members that have not answered an inbound call queue call. In other words, this KPI includes:
    • Members that have called out using a call queue number
    • Members that are in a private inbound/outbound call; for example, using their personal phone number or any number other than the call queue number
  • Hold Call: Members that placed their queue call on call.
  • Wrap-up: Members that recently end their queue call and are in the wrap up time specified in the call queue settings.
  • Opt-out: Members that have disabled call notifications for the call queue.

  • Total Members: The total number of members in the selected call queue.

Alert notification KPIs

  • Number of Waiting Calls: The number of waiting calls in a call queue.
