Salesforce Service Cloud – Contact Center Reports

As a call center manager, it is very important to monitor team’s case performances targets, train new support agents, analyze team’s open case performance and etc. There are multiple matrices which a call center manager normally monitor to improve contact center’s performance. Call center manager can use Salesforce reports to monitor critical support metrics such as -Total open cases by agentsTotal cases created by agents and statusTotal cases created by agents and productsTotal average age by agentTotal closed cases by agentLet’s start with few important reports here -Agent Open Case Load by Origin/Type:This report will help call center manager to determine his/her team’s bandwidth/workload. The report will be grouped based on Agent and Case Origin/Type(based on your business operation). From here call center manager can easily get real time view of his/her team’s current work pressure. Here comes the report -Average Age of Open Case:Another very important report to understand your team’s performance – how long your agents are taking to serving customers and thus meeting the service-level agreements (SLAs).

Salesforce Live Agent Chat – Objects

In this post, I am going to explain about the standard objects which will be created by default the moment you enable Live Agent in your organization. Let’s start – Live Chat Visitors:This object contains information about the visitors who has initiated the chat session. One important field here is the Session Key.

The reason is if the end user is initiating multiple chat sessions, then Salesforce will link all Live Chat Transcripts records (This is another object, which I will explain in a few minutes) to this unique Live Chat Visitor record. Here is a sample Live Chat Visitor record. Live Chat Transcripts:This is the record which tells you the conversation that happened between your Service Representatives and End Users.

Here is sample Live Chat Transcript record.Live Chat Transcript Events:This object tracks all the events that occur between Service Representatives and Customer during the chat.
