I’ve turned on omnichannel routing and configured custom agent statuses. When I view the Omnichannel: Unified and custom agent state prebuilt dashboard, the duration of time that an agent spent in a per-channel status is different than the duration of time they spent in the corresponding unified agent status. Why are these durations different?
In the example screenshot above, you can see that the time spent in the Away status for messaging is 1:34:44, while the time spent in the Away unified agent status is only 0:51:53.
The duration of time an agent spends in a per-channel status equals the duration of time they spend in the corresponding unified status plus any custom statuses that are mapped to that per-channel status.
To see this in action, consider the following example scenario:
- The messaging channel has a per-channel status of Away.
- The corresponding unified agent status is also called Away.
- You’ve created a custom agent status called On Break, which you’ve mapped to the Away status for the messaging channel.
In this scenario:
|Time spent in the Away status for messaging
|Time spent in the Away unified status
|Time spent in the On Break custom status
When viewing the Omnichannel: Unified and custom agent state prebuilt dashboard, this scenario might look something like the following:
In the example screenshot above, you can see that the time spent in the Away status in the Messaging channel is still 1:34:44. But now, the time spent in the Unified channel also adds up to 1:34:44 because the report is filtered on both the Away unified agent status (unified away, in the report) as well as the On Break custom agent status.
