Real-time monitoring enables managers and supervisors to oversee agents’ conversations and performance moment by moment. The metrics available with real-time monitoring may help you increase productivity and better understand your business and your contact center operation.

Real-time monitoring is available to users with channel Supervisor roles. It consists of four dashboard pages found on the Monitoring page: Agents, Teams, Channels, and Topics. Each page provides insights into operational performance from different perspectives.

Dashboard options on the Monitoring tab.

Monitoring dashboards automatically refreshevery 30 seconds. They display both real-time metrics and metrics with an average over the past 12 hours.

Note: Users only see data for the channels to which they have Supervisor access.

Use the filter settings to optimize your view and focus only on data that is relevant to you. Filter settings are saved, even if you log out.
