We have introduced the following enhancements and improvements in the 8x8 Quality Management and Speech Analytics 5.6 release:

Draft Evaluations

When evaluating an interaction, an unfinished evaluation is auto-saved as a draft. An unfinished evaluation is considered any evaluation where there is at least one question left unanswered. You can access Draft evaluations from the:

Draft evaluations are not included in any of the Quality Management reports.

How to find a draft evaluation

Evaluators, or any user with the permission to view evaluations can find a draft.

To find a draft:

  1. Navigate to the Evaluation search page.
  2. From there, search the filter Is draft and click Yes.
  3. Click Search. The evaluation list updates with only draft evaluations.

If the user has permission to view evaluations from other users, the list also displays those evaluations.

Additional ways to find a draft:

If a draft evaluation exists for the interaction, it is listed under the Drafts table in the section. A user with appropriate permissions may edit and delete the draft.

Edit a draft evaluation

To edit a draft evaluation from the Evaluations search page:

  1. From the Evaluations search page, click Draft to open the evaluation.
  2. Navigate to the evaluation details section of the slide-out on the Evaluations search page and click Edit to open the evaluation.

To edit a draft evaluation from the Interactions Search page:

  1. From the Interactions search page, click Menu .
  2. Select Edit from the Evaluations section in the slide-out.

Note: When editing a draft evaluation, the template you use to score cannot be changed from what was saved previously. Therefore, if you need to change the template, you need to create a new evaluation.

Preview a Quality Assurance template

You can now preview a Quality Assurance template in the Editor before you save it thus allowing you to check the flow and spelling.

When you create a Quality Assurance template you can preview any template with at least one (1) section and one question added. The template does not need to be saved in order to preview it.

To preview the template’s flow:

  1. Click Preview. The Edit screen switches to Preview Mode. In Preview Mode, you can answer the questions, write comments, and test out the flow to determine any gaps or spelling mistakes. This is very useful if you have nested questions. No answers or comments are saved when in Preview Mode.
  2. To clear out the answers and comments in order to start over, click the Clear link at the top of the screen.
  3. To switch back to editing, click Edit at the top-right corner of the screen.

Multi-language transcription policies

With multi-language transcription policies, administrators in 8x8 Admin Console can set policies for which calls are transcribed and in what language those calls are transcribed. This lets you perform speech analytics on non-English phrases.

For example, if you have a Contact Center with queues in English and Spanish, and you can now transcribe the calls in the Spanish queue so your transcriptions are accurate to the language spoken on the call. This is a major benefit as your calls in non-English are transcribed correctly.

The administrator can set a policy at the agent or queue level, assign and unassign the transcriber and language individually or in bulk. Languages include: French (CA) , Spanish (US), and several flavors of English.
