What's new in the Analytics for 8x8 Work 2.6 release?

In the Analytics for 8x8 Work 2.6 release, we have introduced the following enhancements:

Introducing new time metrics in the Extension Summary report

This release introduces two new metrics in the Extension Summary report:

  • Inbound Talk Time: Cumulative talk duration of the inbound answered calls. It also includes the extension to extension calls.
  • Outbound Talk Time: Cumulative talk duration of the outbound answered calls. It also includes the extension to extension calls.

You now can see at a glance the time spent on answered calls, based on their inbound or outbound direction.

These metrics are available to customers through Analytics for 8x8 Work and also through the public API.

You can choose to display the Inbound Talk Time and the Outbound Talk Time metrics in the Extension Summary report, in the extensions summary chart, the extensions table view, and in the extension summary dashboard. You can do that either from the Extension Summary report or when scheduling an Extension Summary scheduled report email, from Customize table.

Enhanced date time range filtering for Call Detail Records report

In this release, by using the enhanced data time range filter, you now can generate one single CDRClosedCall Detail Record includes call details such as point of origin,end point, call direction, call duration, and more. report across two days.

Let’s say you need to generate a report to assess the call traffic for an overnight shift, such as from 7 pm to 7 am the next day. Select both dates, and start and end time of the overnight shift, and generate the data in a single CDR report. Select both dates and start and end time of the overnight shift and generate the data in a single CDR report. You no longer need to generate two separate reports (first one for the first day, from 7 pm to midnight, and the second for the next day, from midnight to 7 am), and then to merge them in a final report.

To filter CDR reports by date range for the calls tracking for a cross-day time range:

  1. While you are on Call Detail Records report, click to select the date range.
  2. From the calendar, select your desired date range:

    • Select the both dates that cover the overnight shift.
    • Select the start date and end date for the overnight shift.
  3. Click Search. The dashboard refreshes and displays the data for the overnight shift date range.
