Player

Listening to individual calls is often a crucial part of identifying root causes behind KPIs, their changes, and long-term trends. The WFO Player helps you get a quick overview of a call, so you do not have to listen to the full length of the call.

Timeline

The height of the waveform indicates how loud the speaker is speaking. In the timeline above, you can see the following items:

  • Green Waveform: the customer is speaking
  • Blue Waveform: the agent is speaking
  • Red Highlight: customer and agent are talking over each other (cross-talk)
  • Orange Highlight: a long silence

Clicking anywhere on the timeline starts playback from the selected time. The timestamps below the waveform to help you navigate within the call.

Multiple Segments

The WFO Player shows all segments of a conversation.

When a conversation is more complex, and more agents are involved in handling a customer, each additional agent reservation is indicated in the timeline.

Agents who accepted a reservation are marked with a black plus '+' sign. Agents who completed their reservations are marked with a red minus '-' sign. Moving cursor over the symbol will show who joined or left the conversation.

Currently, the active segment is highlighted in the player. Inactive segments are greyed out. You can play both active and inactive segments. All comments and assessments saved in the player are attached to the highlighted active segment. The agent handling the segment shown on the left is the left bottom corner including the team they were at in.

You can switch the active segment with the buttons in the top right corner. The buttons for switching the segments are shown only for conversations with two or more segments and show time individual agents spent handling the conversation. Switching to a different segment will highlight a different part of the conversation. All subsequent comments and assessments will be attached to the chosen segment.

Jump to calls

You may jump from Dashboards and Reports to the Player by clicking on individual segments in the table reports. The Player will open in a new window.

Share the current position in a call

You can share a link to a specific call by copying the link to the call from the browser address bar. Twilio WFO will require login for everybody who uses the link to play a call.

You can also get a link pointing to your current position in the call:

  1. Click the player menu behind the audio waveform.
  2. Click Copy Link.
  3. Now you have a link on your clipboard, which you can paste into an email, chat message, or document to share with your colleagues.

Control the playback speed

With the speed controls available under the player menu button on the right side of the Player, you can choose from four different playback speeds adjusted for convenient listening:

  • Slow — Roughly half the rate of Normal.
  • Normal — The original speed as recorded.
  • Fast — Roughly 50% faster than Normal.
  • Very Fast — Almost 2x faster than Normal.

Using the Slow speed, you can focus more on details in the customer channel, whereas Fast and Very Fast speeds allow you to speed up the listening process.

The default speed is Normal, and it is set every time you open or reload the Player.
