Agent Performance Report - Zoho Desk Knowledgebase

Understanding the Agent Performance report



One of the most useful reports for monitoring the day-to-day performance of your agents is the Agent Performance report. This report offers detailed statistics on several agent performance metrics and can be configured to show data for one or more agents during various time periods (from one day to 30 days).


For each agent, the report includes performance information organized under four broad categories, namely:
  1. Response Metrics
  2. Resolution Metrics
  3. SLA Metrics
  4. Customer Happiness Metrics
These metrics will include a range of indicators - everything from ‘first response time’ and ‘average resolution time’ measures to service agreement compliance levels and customer happiness ratings. Let's look at the various agent performance statistics categorized by the above four constructs.

 Metric
 Definition
 How it's calculated
 Response Metrics


 Outgoing
Total number of public responses on tickets irrespective of incoming threads.
The sum of ticket responses.
 Responses
Total number of public responses corresponding to an incoming ticket thread.
The sum of ticket responses for each incoming thread.
 First Responses
Total number of first public responses on tickets.
The sum of first ticket responses by the agent.
 Reopen Tickets
Total number of ticket reopens during the  chosen time period.
The sum of tickets that were closed at least once and then reopened.
 First Response Time [Avg]
The average time between ticket creation and the first public response sent to that ticket.
Average of difference between response timestamp and creation timestamp of tickets.
 Response Time [Avg]
The average time between a customer sending a ticket and receiving a response until the ticket is closed.
Average of difference between the timestamp of every incoming and outgoing conversation of a ticket.



 Resolution Metrics


 FCR Tickets
Total number of tickets that get closed within the first response from the agent.
The sum of tickets where ticket status is Closed and contains one public response from the agent.
 Closed Tickets
The number of closed tickets.
The sum of tickets where ticket status is Closed.
 Resolution Time [Avg]
The average time your agent takes to successfully solve the customer's problem and close the ticket.
Average of difference between closure timestamp and creation timestamp of tickets.



 SLA Metrics


 First Response Violation
Number of tickets whose first responses were sent beyond their SLA targets.
The sum of tickets whose First Response SLA metric status is violated.
 First Response Success
Number of tickets whose first responses were sent within their SLA targets.
The sum of tickets whose First Response SLA metric status is fulfilled.
 Response Violation
Number of tickets whose responses were sent beyond their SLA targets.
The sum of tickets whose Response SLA metric status is violated.
 Response Success
Number of tickets whose responses were sent within their SLA targets.
The sum of tickets whose Response SLA metric status is fulfilled.
 Resolution Violation
Number of tickets that were resolved beyond their SLA targets.
The sum of tickets whose Resolution SLA metric status is violated.
 Resolution Success
Number of tickets that were resolved within their SLA targets.
The sum of tickets whose Resolution SLA metric is fulfilled.
 First Response Violation Time [Avg]
The average amount of time by which the SLA target time for sending first public response is violated, for example, if the first response target (A) is 3 hours and the target was achieved (B) in 4 hours then the violation time (C) will be 1 hour [B-A=C].
Average of difference between the actual responded time and the original first response due time of tickets.
 Response Violation Time [Avg]
The average amount of time by which the SLA target time for sending each public response is violated.
Average of difference between the actual responded time and the original response due time of tickets.
 Resolution Violation Time [Avg]
The average amount of time by which the SLA target time for resolving a ticket is violated, for example, if the resolution target (A) is 3 hours and the ticket was resolved (B) in 4 hours then the violation time (C) will be 1 hour [B-A=C].
Average of difference between the actual resolved time and the original resolution due time of tickets.
 First Response Residual Time [Avg]
The average amount of time left to fulfill the SLA target of sending the first public response after achieving it, for example, if the first response target (A) is 3 hours and the ticket was responded (B) in 2 hours then the residual time (C) will be 1 hour [A-B=C].
Average of difference between the original first response due time and the actual responded time of tickets.
 Response Residual Time [Avg]
The average amount of time left to fulfill the SLA target of sending each public response after achieving it.
Average of difference between the original response due time and the actual responded time of tickets.
 Resolution Residual Time [Avg]

Average of difference between the original resolution due time and the actual responded time of tickets.

    The Overview opens by default.

Defining Time Frames
By default, the report will display performance metrics for the last 24 hours. However, you can customize the report to assess agent performance over different time periods.

Select from one of the following predefined reporting periods:
  • Last 24 hours [default]
  • Today
  • Yesterday
  • Last 7 days
  • Last 30 days
  • Current week

      Note: Specify a custom date range not exceeding 30 days.
  4. The report data will be updated to reflect the changes.

Grouping by Date
You can determine how the performance metrics are grouped and displayed. You can view each agent in your selected time frame as an individual record, or you can group by date to see cumulative information for your selected time frame. When you group by date, the agent metrics are displayed for each date.

To group data by date:
  1. Open the Agent Performance report.
  2. Click the More icon (  ) in the upper-right corner of the page.
  3. Select Date under Group by.
    The agent metrics will displayed for each date.

Exporting Performance Data
You can export your agent performance metrics in the formats - XLS (grid format), PDF, CSV, and CSV Max Records. Note that you can export a maximum of 2000 records per instance in all formats except for CSV Max Records, which allows exporting 20000 records.

To export report data:
  1. Open the Agent Performance report.
  2. Click the More icon (  ) in the upper-right corner of the page.
