When you select a statistic within the template wizard, Genesys Pulse displays the values of the statistic properties. These statistic properties are described below.
The Alias must be a unique name that represents the technical name of the statistic. Use an ASCII letter for the first character.
The Display Alias is the name displayed on the report.
The Description provides the functional meaning of the statistic.
The Display Format specifies whether values are shown as time or numbers, and, if numbers, the number of decimal places. Depending on the statistic you chose, the available formats in the drop-down list are time-based or numerical.
List of Values: Time, Integer, Number, Percent, String
The Filters represent statistical filters that define restrictive conditions on actions used while calculating the statistic. See the "Statistical Categories" chapter in the Framework Stat Server User's Guide to learn how to define filtered statistics.
The list of Filters is available in the Configuration section of GAX. This view is available in Stat Server application options used by Genesys Pulse.
Your account must have privileges to access this section.
Within GAX, you can add, edit or delete a filter.
Suppose that you want to filter calls based on language: If the enterprise set up the key Language to identify language and the value Spanish for callers who speak Spanish, you could use the PairExists UserData function to search for calls with attached data in the Language/Spanish key-value pair.
On the Options tab of the Stat Server Properties screen, you could add a SpanishLanguage option in the [Filters] section and specify filtering for calls with attached data containing the key "Language" and the value "Spanish".
The example would have SpanishLanguage in the Name field and PairExists("Language","Spanish") in the Value field.
Now, when an agent attaches the "Spanish/Language" key-value pair to calls from a desktop application, the calls are filtered out of statistical calculations.
From the statistic detail pane, you can create or customize statistics by creating a formula.
Genesys Pulse assumes the offered calls are defined by a statistic alias Offered and the abandoned calls are defined by a statistic alias Abandoned.
The formula must return a Result value to be valid and can access any statistics of the template with the following syntax: Data.<Statistic-Alias>.Value
All formulas must contain an assignment for the Result variable (for example, Result=). The Result of the formula calculation is the final value of this variable.
For example, here is a formula using the function G.GetAgentNonVoiceStatus():
Result = G.GetAgentNonVoiceStatus(Data.Current_Status.Value, email);
- GroupBy support relies on StatServer functionality that was introduced in release 8.5.103. See the StatServer User Guide for more information.
- Pulse supports snapshots when GroupBy is applied to the same expression for either all or no statistics.
- When you use a GroupBy expression that involves user data which is changed during call, that call will be counted in the group with the old value (or no value) AND in the group with new value. Therefore, for the TotalNumber statistics, if you add up all values for all groups, you have more than the statistic's total value.
The GroupByColumns option facilitates provisioning of Pulse widgets and enable multi-dimensional data presentation (GroupBy capability) in Grid widgets and in the Data view on an expanded widget tab.
GroupBy columns should contain valid unique aliases, separated by comma.
StatType, used with GroupBy capability, must define the following additional attributes:
- GroupBy—contains grouping expressions separated by comma
- GroupByColumns—contains aliases for grouping expressions separated by comma
To monitor the number of internal calls grouped by Language and Segment, instead of explicitly defined and applied filters to a metric, define the GroupBy and GroupByColumns for the StatType in the Stat Server:
[Total_Calls_Grouped] Category=TotalNumber GroupBy=GetString(UserData,"Language"), GetString(UserData,"Segment") GroupByColumns=Language, Segment MainMask=CallInternal Objects=Agent Subject=DNAction
Include a metric based on this StatType in your widget template and make sure Group By Columns field is filled correctly with “Language, Segment” string.
You can use Group by Columns option when you create a template.
Insensitivity describes a condition for Stat Server to send updates of statistical values to its clients. An increase in the value of this parameter usually decreases network traffic, but it also reduces reporting accuracy, because values are not updated as frequently. This setting is not visible in Stat Server configuration, but rather, clients pass its value to Stat Server along with each statistic request.
Insensitivity plays no role for reset-based statistics. For time-based or change-based notification mode, Stat Server only reports the recalculated value if the absolute value of the difference between the previous value and the recalculated value or its percentage ratio to the recalculated value is at least equal to the number specified by Insensitivity.
For example, if the result has a long integer data type—as is the case for statistics measuring time—Stat Server uses the absolute difference in values for comparison. Given an Insensitivity setting of 5 in this case, Stat Server sends the recalculated result to its client when the absolute value of the difference between the new and old result is at least 5 (seconds, usually).
The Notification Mode determines when Stat Server sends updated statistical values. These are the valid options:
- Time-Based—Select this Notification Mode to instruct Stat Server to recalculate the statistic by the frequency displayed in Notification Frequency property. Stat Server sends a new value to Genesys Pulse only when the absolute difference from the last reported value exceeds the Insensitivity property.
- Change-Based—Select this Notification Mode to instruct Stat Server to notify Genesys Pulse about changes immediately.
- No Notification—Select this option to instruct Stat Server to not report updates. Updates are turned off in this case.
- Reset-Based—Select this Notification Mode to instruct Stat Server to report Genesys Pulse value right before setting it to zero (0). CurrentState statistics cannot be requested with Reset-Based notification mode.
Use Notification Frequency to set how often, in seconds, Stat Server recalculates the statistic and notifies Genesys Pulse if the statistic changes by more than the valued displayed in the Insensitivity field. This field is only used when a Time-Based Notification Mode is selected for the statistic.
The mandatory Statistic Type displays the parameters that define the statistic type within Stat Server.
The list of Statistic Types available in the environment should be accessible through the Genesys Administrator Extension (GAX) within the Configuration section. You can view them in the Application Options of the Stat Server application used by Genesys Pulse.
Your account must have privileges to access the Configuration section.
Within GAX, you can add, edit, or delete a statistic type.
This list should be the same as the list of statistic types detailed in the Genesys Pulse templates spreadsheet.
For more information on Stat Type definitions, see the Framework Stat Server User's Guide.
Use the Time Profile to define the Time Profile for the statistic and specify the interval over which historical aggregate values are calculated. All time profiles are defined as configuration options in the Time Profiles of the Stat Server Application object in Genesys Configuration. See the Framework Stat Server User's Guide for information about how to set up time profiles.
The list of Time Profiles available in the environment should be accessible in the GAX Configuration section. This view is available in Stat Server application options used by Genesys Pulse.
Your account must have privileges to access this section.
Within GAX, you can add, edit, or delete a Time Profile.
The Time Profile contains four main types:
Time Profiles Examples
- Default,Growing—The Default time profile uses a Growing interval type and resets statistics to zero (0) every night at midnight. The default value is set to 00:00.
- LastHour,Sliding—The LastHour time profile uses a Sliding interval type and tracks the last hour of activity with a sampling taken every 15 seconds. The default value is set to 3600:15.
- SinceLogin,SinceLogin—SinceLogin resets statistics to zero (0) at the moment of agent login. Statistics continue to accumulate as long as the agent is logged into (any) DN. The SinceLogin interval type aggregates statistical data only for agent-object statistics.
- Shifts,Growing—A time profile named Shifts resets statistics to zero when shifts change at 3:00 AM, 7:00 AM, 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 7:00 PM, and 1:00 AM. The default value is set to 3:00 +4:00, 13:00 +6:00.
The Time Range specifies when to collect data for a limited set of statistics. See the Framework Stat Server User's Guide for information about how to set up time profiles.
The list of Time Ranges is available in the Configuration section of GAX. This view is available in the options of the Stat Server application used by the Genesys Pulse solution.
Your account needs to have privileges to access this section.
Within GAX, you can add, edit, or delete a time range.
Time Ranges apply to statistics in following categories:
Time Range Example
Suppose that you want to calculate the total number of calls answered within 30 seconds. To do so, enter Range0-30 in the Name field, and 0-30 in the Value field.
In this example, a Pulse statistic that calculates the total number of calls is based on the time range "Range0-30". If one call is answered after being in a queue for 25 seconds, a second call after 40 seconds, and a third call after 10 seconds, Stat Server counts only the first and third calls.
