    Is it possible to pull the phone number friendly names into Insights so we're not filtering by 20 random phone numbers without names?

    Hey Justin,

    This is data that we're currently not pushing so unfortunately it's not a non-trivial update for us to make to surface this within Insights. However it is an update that we want to make, for the exact reasons you're mentioning, but I'm unable to provide a timeline for it at the moment. 

    Thanks for the feedback, seems like we're on the same page at least!

    Hey Dylan! I'm looking into whether this is a data point that exists in Insights. Sit tight!

    Hey Dylan,

    Currently we don't store the data on how many times the hold button was used. Instead we base the data off of the total time a customer is placed on hold.

    Perhaps as a workaround in this case, we could look into the average hold time, but for calls that were on hold for atleast 10 seconds, 15 seconds, etc...

    Let me know if this would work for you!

    Hey Dylan,

    My apologies for the miscommunication here. I tried recreating the report within my own test account and found out that the only metric available to report on actual Call Time are shown here:

    You can see that unfortunately we don't store a good amount of data points related specifically to Zendesk Talk. The only metrics and dashboards for talk that you have available to you are within the Talk Reporting Dashboard and a few metrics within Insights.

    I found out that our goal moving forward is to have these data sets and data sources available on Zendesk Explore which will be our in house analytics program. Zendesk Explore will be able to provide data sets on many products that we are currently unable to report on such as Zendesk Talk, Zendesk Chat & Zendesk Guide.

    My apologies for the miscommunication here.

    Hi all,

    Is there any way to tie calls back to the tickets from which they were made? Looking at the attributes available under calls, I see a 'call id' but not a 'ticket id'. The calls are clearly logged as comments on the ticket so it seems that the data should be linked. I want to write a report that lists calls by ticket (e.g., ticket id 207: call 12345; call 23409; call 59982). 

    Thanks,

    Jordan

    Hi Jordan,

    Great question! The Talk Dashboard already includes this data natively. However, if you want to build reports in Insights, the attribute is just Call. So if you put both Ticket id and Call under How, you'll get a basic one to one list. 

    Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions!

    Hi!

    I just updated the Team plan to Professional to be able to see the Talk Insights. However, my data is blank. Nothing is populating in the Talk Insights tab. Can I view Talk Insights for previous dates, or only for the dates since I upgraded to Professional?

    Thanks,

    Tamara

    Hi Tamara! Welcome to the Community!

    Your Talk data will be available from the date you upgraded your plan, but not before. It might take a little time for that data to sync up so that you can see it.

    Let us know if you need anything else!

    Hi there, 

    Looking at the above images, the Agent call statistics table includes total outbound calls. Can you provide the API call I would need to pull this data for my reps on an individual basis? We're looking at pulling that data through a third party reporting provider. Thanks!

    Hi Nick - 

    I don't have the exact call for you, but here's the Talk API documentation that should get you the information you're looking for.

    Is it possible to create an Avg. Abandoned Rate and not include calls abandoned within 10 seconds? Thanks!

    Hi Jose,

    Yes, you can exclude calls based on their duration; however, this would require creating several custom metrics. In order to find the time before the call was abandoned, I recommend using a "fact" in Insights, which is a piece of data about the call that we store for reporting. We don't have a fact that encompasses the total duration of the call so I recommend using the "Call Leg Duration" fact. Our article Call Facts and Attributes defines all of the options if you'd like to look into using a different fact for your metric.

    You can create a metric to represent the duration of the customer leg for each call, utilizing the "Call Leg Duration" fact. Then you can incorporate that first metric into a second metric that only includes abandoned calls where the customer leg duration is greater than 10 seconds.

    To create a metric that only includes calls where the first metric is greater than 10 seconds, I recommend copying the existing metric "# Calls abandoned" and adding a condition that your new metric needs to be greater than 10 to the end of it.

    From there, you can find the average abandoned rate by comparing your new metric with existing metrics like "# inbound Calls".

    I hope that helps! Let us know if you have other questions!

    Hello, I had a question about the Inbound call leg routing to agents graphic. What exactly is this showing? The total number in this visual is less than the total number of inbound calls, so what are the calls that count towards this visual, and what has happened in the cases of inbound calls that do not make it into this measurement? Thank you!

    Hi Grace Maher looking at the formulas behind this report, it contains three metrics:

    Accepted call legs - The number of agents who accepted and completed a call leg.

    Missed call legs - The number of agents who did not answer a call leg

    Declined call legs - The number of agents who declined to answer a call leg

    You can see the call leg definitions at https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005308948

    I hope this helps!

    Rob Stack Thank you for that info, that does help. I am now trying to understand how my total inbound call volume is represented in the different graphics on this page. Within Inbound call leg routing to agents, we have a total of 951 calls (887 accepted, 63 missed, and 1 declined), and under the Calls tab, we have 144 Voicemails, and 324 Abandoned inbound calls. Adding these numbers up I am still off from our total Inbound calls, which is 1351. My calculations are as follows: 951 (inbound call legs routing to agents) +144 (Voicemails) +324 (Abandoned inbound calls) -64 (missed and declined Inbound call legs routing to agents, that I assume are captured in the Abandoned inbound calls measure) = 1355. Can you help me understand where I am double-counting these 4 calls?

    Hi Grace Maher I'm glad the information helped. I want to make sure that someone can dig into the question you have about your call volume so I've sent your comment into a ticket. Someone will be in contact soon about this. Based on the findings, I'll make any necessary doc updates if anything needs to be clarified. Thanks!

    Looking at "Abandoned calls by stage" but am unsure how to read it - according to it 90% of our calls are abandoned in voicemail, but we don't offer voicemail, but rather exclusively do callbacks. Does abandoned in voicemail include callbacks? Is there a space to see what the definitions for each listed stage entail? I found this article but it doesn't seem to be helpful for my question.

    Hi Bryce Radick thanks for the question. What's happening doesn't sound right, so I've opened a ticket on your behalf so somebody can see what's going on. You should hear back from us soon.
