An introduction to Activity

This article will help you navigate to the right place to see agent performance data, and help you keep up to date with your team’s activity through six areas of reporting. If you’re looking to dive into more detail on how to report on a team using Activity reports, read more here.

What is Activity?

Lexer Activity holds all the data you need to effectively report on agent and team performance. Here you can also keep track of account security, with a log of all actions performed in your account.

Activity has six unique reporting areas - each of these yield different data, and are designed to help you find answers. The data for each report is composed of agents’ performance metrics in Lexer Engage, and Lexer Listen. Every page can be sorted by user groups and individuals, and is available for instant export to CSV, for your own analysis.

Six areas of Activity

  1. Summary
  2. Team
  3. SLA
  4. Cases
  5. NPS
  6. Security

To understand the current state of your team’s performance, the Summary (1) and Team (2) reports will give you the most amount of detail.

To explore responses, classifications, SLA’s, response times, and various key performance metrics, check out SLA (3) and Cases (4).

For customer feedback on your agents’ performances, head to NPS (5) and study the rankings provided by customers themselves.

You can view a log of granular actions within the Lexer platform by heading into the Security report (6).

Summary The summary page is filled with data on the actions that your teams & agents have performed inside of Lexer. Here you can see summaries for team reporting on response rates, topics of content, volume and speed of replies, SLA metrics and the amount of time your customers have spent waiting for an agent.
Team Get a deeper inside scoop on what your team are up to right now. Find out how many open objects are currently assigned to different agents, how many each agent is involved in, and the volume your team have handled. The Team report is exportable, for insights that can easily be shared within organization.
SLA Take a look at the content your agents have created, and get a full understanding of conversational context as you read the responses within/outside of the SLA of your team. The SLA report considers every interaction as a unique object, and provides the SLA on each. This screen also includes a summary of average response times, so you can study lengthy response periods. Export data from the SLA report to get a glimpse of trending topics and sentiment.
Cases Get an understanding of what it takes for your team to close an engagement with a customer. Cases data contains entire conversations with response times, a full history of Classifications, lists of agents involved, and flags to indicate when NPS surveys have been sent. Export this data for highly detailed analysis.
NPS See the outcome of Net Promoter Score surveys, and read into the responses from your own customers. Here you can see NPS scores by agents, read the conversations that gave these scores, and even respond to the customers involved in the engagement. The NPS report is the fastest way to learn about how the promoters and detractors feel about your service teams.
Security See the complete log of agent actions inside Lexer. Security is an ever present record of any submittable action in Lexer. Some examples are: activating audiences, responding to content, saving tier filters, filter security by teams, users and time.

Reporting on the performance of your team with Activity

Using the Summary report as a guide, we’ll give you a breakdown of the information you can find in each area of activity. While the metrics will change for each report, the format and layout is the same across all.

  1. Customize your search
  2. Instant summary stats
  3. Explore your data in tables
  4. Export the data

Across every report in Activity are two handy tools to help you customize your search. The tool with the default selection “All Groups & Users”, is where you can refine your summary to be about a specific user, or a group of users. Groups can be managed in the Settings page, accessible via the home screen.

The other selection tool is a date range picker. From left to right, select your start and finish date range, to capture the most meaningful period, to help you understand where your team is at.

2. Instant Summary Statistics

On each report, you’ll be given a summary of the average for all results in your selected timeframe. Keep reading to find out more about exporting your data for metrics on individual objects.

On the Summary report, you’ll see:

Messages The number of objects that have been handled by your team during the data range you’ve selected. The total number of messages you’ve received will be much higher.
Responded The percentage of handled objects that have been responded to, out of the total amount of messaged received.
Customer wait time How long the customer waited from the moment they created an object, through to the agent’s first response.
Average response time The average amount of time it takes for agents to send the first response to a customer, recorded from the time the agent took ownership, through to the agent’s first response.
Over SLA The Over SLA metric is the percentage of objects with a response time over the SLA. The standard SLA for clients is 2 hours, but this configurable. Contact Lexer Support to find out more.
Slowest response This is the slowest response time within the data of your current search. This will help you understand if the summary stats are influenced by outliers (extra long response times), or if responses are consistently within a similar time range to each other.

Managers Note: Outliers in long response times can negatively gear an average figure to be higher. For an accurate average that excludes outliers, try exporting the data and using an interquartile range method to identify potential outliers, and recalculate the average with the remaining data.

3. Explore your data in tables:

On each report you’ll see a set of tables under the Summary stats, which give a more granular breakdown, and allow you to export for further analysis.

On the SLA and Cases reports, these tables are interactive - click on entries within the tables to open the objects they’re reporting on, and use them to respond to customers, leave notes for your team, and apply Classifications etc. as you would in Engage.

4. Export data

Every table in Activity has an export button in the top right hand corner, which allows you to download its data in csv format. Note that exports from tables with large amounts of data may take a few moments.
