This page describes how to generate your first Historical Report for your contact center.[+] Tip: What is a Historical Report?
You can generate historical reports using Genesys Interactive Insights, a component of Genesys PureEngage Cloud.
How do I access PureEngage out-of-box Historical Reports?
- On the Genesys Portal, click the Reporting button. (It' a big green button on the All Apps or User tab.)
- If prompted, enter your user name and password.
- The Genesys Interactive Insights page appears. Expand the Document List, choose Public Folders, and then Business Edition.
- From the listed reports, double-click a report (or right-click, and choose View).
When you first open historical reports, they contain either no data, or data from the last time the report was run. For most reports, you can select what information to include when you generate a report.[+] Tip: What browsers are supported?
Understanding the following terms and concepts will help you navigate the Genesys Interactive Insights GUI: Within Genesys Interactive Insights, Reports are considered to be a type of 'Document': so when, for example, you see Document List in the GUI, think Report List.
When you first open Genesys Interactive Insights, the Home tab appears; return to this tab at any time by clicking Home in the main menu.
Click Document List to browse the Interactive Insights folders (where reports are stored). In most cases, what you are looking for will be found in the Public Folders. Within the Document List:
- Public Folders—Reports stored in the Public Folders are available to all users (security options permitting).
- My Favorites—Reports stored in private folders, such as My Favorites, are visible only to you.
If you're not sure what folder to look in, or the name of the report to look for, you can use the search feature to easily find all relevant reports:
- If you are browsing in a folder, you can enter a search term in the Search Title field.
- For more powerful search options, click the down-arrow next to Search Title, and choose Advanced Search. In the Advanced Search view, choose the search method, or combination of methods, and click Search; for example, enter Interaction Handling in the Search by Title field to list all the reports with that phrase in their names.
How do I generate a report with data in it?
- On any report, click Refresh All to load new data into the report.
The Prompts dialog box appears, where you can customize the results of the report. Note that the options available on the dialog box are unique for each report—the example shown here pertains to the Agent State Details report.
The top half of the Prompts dialog box displays a list of the various dimensions that make up the report. For each one, you can select (in the bottom part of the dialog box) what value or values to apply. In many cases, the default values are appropriate, and if this is your first time running the report, you may wish to leave them at default values until you have tried generating the report.
- Optionally, modify the values that are used to generate the report, before clicking Run Query to generate the report.

How do I read the report?
For detailed information about how to understand reports, see How do Reports Explain What is Happening in my Contact Center?
The short version is this: pretty much every report includes at least the following two tabs:
- The Main Tab provides a detailed view of the report data—for most reports, in a table.
- The Description Tab provides detailed information about each measure that makes up the report. Read these descriptions to understand what the Main tab (and any other tabs) are showing you.
In addition to the Main and Description tabs, some reports include the following tabs:
- The Summary tab, found in many reports, provides a visual summary of the most interesting results from the report: sort of a high-level report-at-a glance.
- The Data tab, found in reports in the Business Edition folder, presents information in a format more suitable for printing or generating a PDF.
- A few reports have additional tabs, specific to the data they present.
