If you’ve been with us for a while, hopefully you’ve made good use of our Reports system to monitor and improve both your live chat activity and chat agent performance.
We know that actionable data is vital for improving both your business and your customers’ experience, and although our Reports were very useful, we knew we could make them better and more useful for you!
That is why we’re proud to bring you our new Analytics system!
It’s better, faster, stronger, more accurate, and completely rebuilt! (Also prettier.)
The new system has been custom built by our developers over the last several months to be perfectly suited to your needs and specifications, so you have all the tools at your disposal to increase your live chat performance, and grow your business! We have much greater control over the new system, and we plan to continually improve our Analytics features and offerings.
A few notable features and improvements:
- Faster, more responsive reports.
- With a vastly superior back-end system to support them.
- The new reports are far more interactive.
- You have greater control over how you wish to visualize your data — chat type filtering, period scaling, agent selection, etc.
- Timezone struggles are now a thing of the past.
- Your Analytics reports are now tied directly to the Timezone configured in your “My Account” settings.
- Drill down on data in the graphs to find all correlated chats.
- Simply click on a bar or datapoint to see the drilldown!
- More granular visibility on individual agents’ performance.
- Click on agents in the “Agent Table” to see individual data visualized in the graphs above.

A harbinger of what’s to come!
You’ll also notice that the Analytics system is using a completely re-designed Admin Dashboard. We are currently in a transitional period as we work to migrate our entire Admin area to the new, easier-to-use layout.
One of the biggest improvements of the new design:
Never forget which widget you’re working on again! The new layout offers significantly improved visibility for your current widget and the current chat status of that widget. If your widget is in “unavailable” status, mouse over the yellow bead to see a tooltip with more details.
Click on the dropdown to switch to another widget, or just to see the chat status of all your widgets in one convenient view!
