What’s the number of calls they make and receive? What is the overall performance of your queues? Which agent is underperforming or burning out? SLA statistics, unanswered calls, abandoned calls, callbacks – the list goes on.

The above parameters are available for all types of reports.
You can filter the data that is displayed in a report based on the values in one or more fields. For example, if you want to view answered calls, you filter the data by Answered Call Status.
Each filter is associated with a single report. Different report types have different filters that can be set.
After configuring the filter parameters, click the OK button to generate the report. If there are massive calls within the date range, it may take a long time to generate the report.
A single "Normal" report has a maximum limit of 20,000 calls. Other types of reports do not have this limitation.
The status will display as "Running" during generating the report.
Once the report is completed, you can click the "Refresh" button to list the report then click the link icon to download it.

The service level for one or more of your queues is summarized in the “Queue Performance Report.” This report will show you the number of calls that were received, handled, and not handled per queue.
It also automatically breaks down the statistics by agents, letting you quickly identify which agent is performing at their peak.
You can set up the filter as follows:
- Exclude Calls Dropped Before Seconds: Don't count the calls if the call duration is less than the specified time.
- Call Queue: Select one or more queues to count
- Queue - Indicates the queue name and number.
- Received - Indicates how many calls were received in the report date range.
- Serviced - The calls were answered by an agent.
- Unanswered - The calls are not answered.
The detailed queue statistics report will give you all the required information to access the queues’ statistics. The queue statistics report includes the following:
- Calls: Answered, abandoned, total, and % serviced
- Ring Time: The total and mean average
- Talk Time: The overall and mean average
- Serviced - The calls were answered by an agent.
- Abandoned - The abandoned calls of the queue in the report date range.
- % Serviced - The percentage of agents who answered calls based on the total number of calls received by the queue during the report date range.
Managers can use the statistics in the "Queue Abandoned Queue Calls" report to help them pinpoint potential causes of abandoned calls. This contains the following information:
- Waiting time
- The agent who assigned the call
- The number of polling attempts
The statistics SLA report shows the total number of calls that are received for one or more queues. Additionally, it will display the number and percentage of missed calls according to the SLA.
The SLA time, or acceptable waiting time for clients calling your queues, is something you can configure. In addition to the configured SLA, this report will show how many calls are awaiting you in your queues.
The report will also include information on the time of the call, the caller ID, and how long they had to wait before speaking with an agent. Additionally, you can choose to not include any calls that were dropped earlier than the specified period of time.
The number of callers who asked for a callback before being attended to by a user is displayed in the "Queue Callbacks" report. The number of calls the queue received, the number of callbacks placed, and the number of unsuccessful callbacks will all be shown in the report.
The "Team Queue General Statistics" report emphasizes the queue at the team level rather than the agent level. This report provides information on how calls are handled when they enter and displays the number of agents in each queue.
This report displays the number of calls that were answered and received for a single or a number of different ring groups. The statistics reflect the number of terms you include when scheduling reports. This information is also broken down using the agent extension number, so you can see which agents are effective and which ones require improvement.
