Dashboards allow you to quickly view data for how your contact center is functioning. A dashboard is a canvas upon which you can display groups of widgets. Widgets present specific types of data about your contact center, such as the current queue of contacts or the number of agents logged in. You can create different dashboards to display categories of information, such as data for a specific team or campaign, or for a specific range of time. Editing a dashboard allows you to configure widget settings, where you select details for data you want to display.
The following image shows a dashboard being edited to add widgets. You can see the Real-Time and Historical tabs at the top, along with two example widgets already on the dashboard (Agent Count By State and Contact States By Skill). The Agent Count By State widget displays the number of agents logged in and their current state (available, unavailable, and so forth). The two widgets below have a settings cog and red X in the upper-right corner. These allow you to configure the widget settings or remove the widget from the dashboard. These two options are available when editing the dashboard.
