Widgets Overview

As a contact center supervisor or administrator, you are generally responsible for keeping track of contact center agent performance. To track performance, there are tools available for the dashboard to ensure that the contact center is functioning properly. Widgets provide a quick view of both real-time and historical data, whereas the reports are used for viewing historical data from a selected period (day, month, etc.).

What is a widget?

Widgets are self-contained modules with specific functionality that can be installed and executed from a dashboard within Central.

Each module in the above image is a separate widget, and each widget provides distinct data to the user. For example, the widget on the far left called Agent Count by StateThe availability status of an agent.. The purpose of this widget is to show an administrator or supervisor the number of agents logged in and their current state (available, unavailable, etc.). As shown, multiple widgets can be added to a dashboard.

What's the difference between real-time and historical widgets?

Real-time widgets use the dashboard to display updated data as it is collected. The following image shows a sample real-time widget.

This widget shows the Queue Counter. In this case, twelve customers are in queue, and the first caller has been waiting for 10:57 minutes.

By contrast, historical widgets display valuable historical data based on a set date range. Note that the data in the historical widgets is not automatically updated, which means you must click the browser's Refresh button to manually update the data. The following image shows a sample historical widget.

This example shows that during the specified time frame, agents were available 48% of the time and unavailable 52% of the time broken into various states.

How do I know which widgets are historical and which are real-time?

The real-time widgets display on the Real-time tab, and the historical widgets display on the Historical tab.
