Users with the
admin role can use Service Level Preferences to customize how metrics in the Real-Time Queues View are calculated. Custom preferences can be set for each queue and each channel in a queue, which enables you to align metrics calucation to your unique business KPIs.
To access the Service Levels page, select Configure Service Levels from the Flex Admin page.
The following service level preferences are available:
- Daily Metrics Reset: The time of day and time zone that determine when the metrics in the Today time frame are reset. You can use a geographical time zone that takes local time changes into consideration. For example, Daylight savings time. This preference can be set differently for every queue.
- Service Level Threshold: The time the customer can wait at most in a queue to be counted as handled within the SLA. All customers that connect to an agent sooner than this threshold are counted as handled within the SLA. All customers that wait longer than this threshold are counted as handled outside of the SLA. This preference can be set differently for every queue-channel combination.
- Short Abandons: The time the customer can wait at most in a queue before giving up without impacting the SLA. This preference can be set differently for every queue-channel combination.
Changes to Daily Metrics Reset impact when the next reset occurs. All metrics in the Today time frame will continue to be added to the current statistic until the new time that you set is reached. This means that the Today time frame can show more than 24 hours of data if the reset time is moved to a later time in the day.
Changes to Service Level Threshold and Short Abandons apply to customers that are still waiting in a queue after the change is saved. We recommend to change these preferences before or after a shift. Changes during a shift may reduce the clarity of real-time reporting.
Global service levels display at the top of the Service Levels page. Flex uses Global service level preferences for any queue and queue-channel combination that does not have custom preferences set up. All newly created queues and channels use Global service levels by default.
We recommend to set your Global service level preferences to values that are applicable for most of your queues and channels. You can then use Custom service level preferences to define exceptions.
- From the Service Levels page, select Edit in the top-right corner.
- Implement your changes then select Save.
- Ensure that you understand the changes in reporting, especially if you make the changes during a shift. Select Confirm.
You can set Custom service level preferences for a specific queue or for any queue-channel combination. Once set, Custom service level preferences display in the table on the Service Levels page. Queues and queue-channel combinations that do not have a custom preference display the text Global.
- From the Service Levels page, select a queue in the table.
- Click Set custom time to customize the Daily Metrics Reset for the queue. We recommend setting the time of day to a few hours before the shift starts for this queue. The time zone is typically set to either the agent location or the location of customers you are serving with your contact center.
- Click Add custom levels to customize thresholds for Service Level Thresholds and Short Abandons in this queue. You can set limits for each channel in the queue. Channels that do not have custom settings use global preferences.
- Click the Remove button on any preferences where you want to use Global preferences instead.
- Click Save to apply all changes.
