Data view restrictions

Report Builder filters data by agent groups, meaning that agent group managers can see data from their own group(s) and subgroups only.

Where there is data that cannot be pre-filtered by agent group, there are also restrictions by role:

  • Agent managers are not allowed to view data in the business activity dashboard that cannot be filtered by agent groups.
  • If a copy of the business activity dashboard is saved under the ‘my account’ folder, an agent manager trying to access it will receive an error message and will not be able to see any data.
  • No restrictions apply for campaign managers.
  • Agent managers required to view business data available on the business activity dashboard will need to be assigned the role of campaign manager as well.

Report Builder folders

Dashboards in Report Builder are saved in folders. The available folders are as follows:

  • Shared reports - dashboards saved here are visible to all the users in the account.
  • Predefined dashboards: All available predefined dashboards.
  • My account: Reports that have been designed specifically for your account, created by you, other users in the account or by the LP account team.
  • Analytics RB reporting: Customized dashboards created by LP for brands with a customization package. All users eligible for receiving these customized reports will have view access to the folder and its dashboards.
  • My reports - dashboards saved here are visible only to the user who created the dashboard.

LiveEngage predefined dashboards

The LiveEngage Report Builder provides a robust reporting platform with powerful DIY features allowing brands to create their own business-intelligent dashboards. LiveEngage comes with a set of predefined dashboards which offer ready made reports for account data flowing into Report Builder from the LiveEngage data platform. These predefined dashboards can be used out of the box, or manipulated to create customized reports which contain unique key performance indicators.

If you wish to enrich the predefined dashboards, and customize them to their needs are requested to approach their LivePerson account manager.

The data currently available in the predefined dashboards are as follows:

{: .notice} The data included in Report Builder is constantly evolving.

Metrics glossary

Before beginning your analysis using the available predefined dashboards, we highly recommend opening the glossary listing all metrics with their corresponding formulas and descriptions.

The glossary contains a full list of metrics available through report builder. Metrics that do not appear in the predefined dashboards can be added by a LivePerson member to the account specific dashboards upon request. Please reach out to your account manager or customer success manager for information about gaining access to additional metrics.

Field details sheet

Every predefined dashboard includes a sheet titled “field details.” This sheet presents a grid with the definitions of each metric and attribute displayed in the visualizations of the dashboard.

Viewing reports

Each report in Report Builder includes dashboard view(s) and field details. You can change between views by using the tabs at the bottom of the screen.

To run a report: Click on the dashboard you wish to open.

Time-frame selector

When selecting a dashboard to run you will be asked to select a timeframe for the dashboard data. This prompt is the “time frame selector.” The dashboard will only present data from the pre-loaded timeframe. You can always “re-prompt” from within the dashboard’s file menu.

In the selector, you may choose from one of the following time-frame options:

  1. Last 120 days
  2. Last 60 days (default)
  3. Last 30 days
  4. Filter for months - choose up to four individual months from the past 13 months

Hour offset selector

When running the agent activity dashboard or the goal tracker dashboard, another prompt will be shown - “hour offset selector.” This prompt presents a selection of time offsets from the default timezone of the account. Using this allows you to present the data in the dashboard in your local time zone (in case it is different from the account's).

If you do not require any change in view from the account default time zone setting, you won’t need to choose anything in the pop-up prompt before running the dashboard (the default offset is TZ+0 which is a zero hour offset from the account default setting).

Dashboard view

Data is displayed in a graphical format and/or in grid view. The data is presented to all users according to their LiveEngage account-level time zone, even if their user-level time zone has been configured differently.

Hover over any report with your mouse to view an explanation of what the report displays. You can customize how the data is displayed by choosing your own color scheme.

Filtering reports

Each report can be filtered to ensure that only the most relevant data is displayed. Reports can be filtered according to specific criteria. These criteria include some or all of the following parameters: date, agent group, agent, skill and so on.

To filter a report:

  1. Select a report either from the predefined dashboards or from the reports in My Account. For the example below, the Agent Activity Dashboard is used.
  2. On the left of the screen, select the dates for which you would like to display data.

    Please note:

    • Data will only display for dates chosen within the timeframe selected when you first ran the report.
    • You can select specific dates using the calendar option, or you can select dynamic date to select a timeframe relative to today’s date.

  3. Click OK.
  4. Under each parameter, for example Agent, use the checkmarks to select the data you would like to be displayed.
  5. At the top left of the screen, click Apply. The data will now be displayed according to your preferences.
