Glossary - Historical Reports

The following tables provide metrics definitions for all the metrics available in the agent and queue interactions reports:

Note: Contact Center Analytics reports take into consideration the ongoing interactions in computing the metrics for each row in order to offer a better view of what happened in the Contact Center. For example, an interaction that entered the queue in the previous time interval and was not accepted or abandoned or diverted (is waiting in queue) is reflected in the Entered metric for the current interval as well.
