  6. If you want to filter the topic data to only include contacts that include or exclude certain keywordsAn individual word you enter into NICE inContact Interaction Analytics Pros to flag it as a word with special significance or as a word to use as criteria for including or excluding data from a topic or widget., phrasesA combination of words, contained in double quotes (""), you enter into NICE inContact Interaction Analytics Pro to flag it as a phrase with special significance or as a phrase to use as criteria for including or excluding data from a topic or widget., entitiesA term that represents a theme or concept. NICE inContact Interaction Analytics Pro intelligently searches for related keywords and context to gather instances of the concept rather than searching for every specific instance of a keyword. For example, the 'sound quality' entity applies to transcripts where people say things like "I can't hear you" or "you're breaking up". You can create custom entities specific to your organization in the company profile., sentimentsThe overall mood of the contact, or the result of the call as determined by analysis of words, phrases, and context of the transcript. An interaction can be positive (blue), negative (red), frustrated, mixed (dark gray), or neutral (light gray)., metrics, or a combination of these things, use the All of These, At Least One of These, and None of These fields as needed:

    • Click and drag sentiment, metric, frustrated, and unresolved tags from Add criteria to the preferred fields and configure them as needed.

    • Enter text directly into the Find contacts with fields to enter keywords, phrases, or entities.

  7. For each tag you type, you can specify the following:

    • Whether the keyword, phrase, or entity should appear in the agent or contact side of the interaction, or both, by clicking the agent or contact icon on the left side of the tag (indicated by a headset or person icon) until the icon corresponding to the criteria you want appears.
    • Whether the keyword, phrase, or entity should be an exact match to what you entered or a variation of what you entered, by clicking the down arrow on the right. An exact match only returns the term or phrase exactly as you entered it. If you choose to match with variations it would also return variations of that word, for example if you enter activate, it could return interactions that include activate, activates, activating, activated, and so on.

    When you enter a phrase, clicking the down arrow also allows you to specify how close the words in the phrase must be to each other for the contact to be considered a match on the phrase. The default is Exact Phrase, meaning the words must be together and in the right order. You can also specify that the words must be one or fewer words apart to eight or fewer words apart and not necessarily consecutive. For example, if you enter the phrase "rude agent" and select a proximity of 3 Words, a transcript that says "an agent was disrespectful and rude" would count.
