The Business dashboard for messaging provides a daily snapshot of campaign performance, allowing brands to analyze the campaign funnel for messaging engagements. Using this dashboard, you can identify opportunities to grow your reach and boost service availability by extracting actionable conclusions based on the consumer’s journey through the brands website, and other engagement sources. This dashboard reflects consumer demand as well as how successfully the campaign was set up on the account. You can utilize this dashboard to optimize your campaign targeting and engagement routing.

Understanding funnel metrics (aggregation levels and distinct counting)

Aggregation Levels

The business funnel can be analyzed from several different aspects. The Business Activity dashboard offers a view into 4 of these: Site, Line of Business, Campaign, and Engagement. At each level, the metrics included in the business funnel are pre-aggregated to reflect the corresponding aspect.

A suffix has been added to each metric name to allow users to identify the level to which the metric is pre-aggregated. For example: “PROSPECTS (CAMP)” and “EXPOSED (LOB)”.

Important to note that the funnel is aligned to the Visit session start time. This means that the date filter set on the dashboard applies to all visits starting within the selected range, including the events which occurred for the entire duration of the retrieved visit sessions.

Distinct metrics

Each funnel metric is assigned to a distinct level, which indicates the consumer experience. There are two distinct levels in the Business Activity dashboard: visitor-session and engagement.

  • Distinct per visitor session will add 1 to the metric results when a defined event occurred during the visit.
  • Distinct per engagement will add 1 to the metric results when a visitor was exposed to a specific engagement.

    The following list contains the distinct metrics and their underlying formula (where applicable):

    Distinct to visit

    • PROSPECTS - Number of visits that were eligible to receive at least one engagement. Includes control group visitors if defined in the account
    • EXPOSED -Number of visits during which the visitor was offered an engagement
    • ENGAGED - Number of visitors who had at least one engagement during their visit

    Distinct to Engagement

    • EXPOSURES - Number of times each engagement was offered to a visitor

Reporting on campaigns funnel from messaging engagements

The business funnel is open to engagements from all sources, including those originating from the Mobile app. The primary difference between tracking the funnel from a website (for Web Messaging) and from a Mobile app is the automated manner in which the funnel metrics are populated.

The LivePerson monitoring code present on your website pages automatically transmits to LiveEngage each step in the consumer’s journey. This translates into metrics included in the Business Activity dashboard. In order to integrate consumer journeys taking place in the mobile app into Campaign Funnel metrics, the use of an SDK is required (read more on how to integrate your app with LiveEngage Campaigns).

The following diagram outlines how funnel metrics are calculated for Messaging Engagements which do not originate from a monitored web source:

Counting “sessions” from the Mobile App

The LiveEngage platform manages consumer activity through “sessions”. A visitor (aka “consumer”) session on a website begins when the visitor enters a webpage monitored by LiveEngage Tag. In most cases, a session ends when the visitor navigates out of the website or closes the browser completely.

Throughout the session, funnel events are transmitted to LiveEngage from the tag present on the web pages.
Similar to the activity on the website, LiveEngage will initiate a session when the mobile app requests a Campaign and Engagement in order to start the in-app conversational experience. This will result in an increase in the SESSIONS metric.

Conversions from the Mobile App

The Business dashboard offers a significant number of metrics which track conversions.

The LiveEngage campaign funnel ends with a successful assisted conversion. An assisted conversion is achieved during or after a conversation with an agent. The mobile app, similar to the website, should report an Engagement Attribute which triggers a campaign goal.

In-session vs. cross-session conversions: A campaign goal achieved during an ongoing session (as explained in the previous section here) is considered an in-session conversion. In order for an in-session conversion to be registered, the mobile app should report on the corresponding Engagement Attribute within 6 hours of the conversation initiation. Beyond 6 hours and with respect to the cross-session window setup in LiveEngage, the conversion will be considered cross-session.

A mobile app messaging conversation may continue beyond 6 hours and is not coupled with the monitored session managed by LiveEngage.

Attribution of conversions to agents: Conversions from the mobile app are either attributed to the first agent of the conversation, or the last. This model is similar to conversions tracked on your website, and is set up via the LiveEngage campaigns settings.

Main sheet: Business Activity analysis

Corresponding to the aggregation levels presented in the above section, the predefined main sheet of the Business predefined dashboard contains a panel for each aggregation level. The metrics are not identical across all panels. Brand, Campaign, Engagements have the same funnel at their aggregated level. LOB and Entry Point do not contain any information following an opened conversation.

Common to all panels

There are four available panels in this dashboard: Brand, LoB, Campaign, Engagement and entry point.

Common to LoB, campaign, entry point and engagement panels

In order to isolate filtering by a specific object name to a single panel without influencing the other panels, a search box has been added to each panel. Searching and selecting one or more Lines of Business, Campaigns, Engagements, or Entry Points (each in their respective panel), will filter all the visualizations in the panel. This will allow drill down to the performance of a designated group of object (for example: all Sales related LoBs).


Each panel, in the bottom area, includes the general volume generated by each LoB, Campaign, or Engagement.

Business activity engagement analysis

Entry point panel

The Entry Point is a section on your website or mobile app. On each entry point, setup in a LiveEngage Campaign, consumers are targeted and engaged. As your LiveEngage implementation grows, consumers arriving to an Entry Point may be targeted by several campaigns, effectively competing with each other towards the same or even different business goals.

Use the Business Activity by Entry Point to analyze the traffic on each website section or mobile app section. Are your campaigns covering all the visit sessions to this entry point? Are prospects being offered an engagement. Take the opportunity to optimize your targeting and engage with enough and the right consumers.

Business activity grid

The business activity grid spreads out all the funnel metrics in a granular view so any member on the account may receive scheduled copies to their email.

Perform the analysis and customization you need using an offline copy, in excel using the complete business activity grid. You can choose the document type (daily/monthly) based on your needed timeframe. The daily grid gives daily aggregations for all the metrics while the monthly grid offers the corresponding aggregations at the monthly level. The data is presented at the brand, campaign and engagement level.

Please note: The business dashboard for messaging does not include agent level data or responses to surveys.

For all metrics available within this dashboard please search the Report Builder Data Metrics by the name of the dashboard in the Developers Community.
