Use the Performance module to display performance statistics for business units, sites, and activities. This module includes a Monitor view for the most recently completed timestep, an Intra-day table view, and an Alerts view.
Also, use the What-If Window to analyze how changes to some statistics affect other factors.
All views display the following statistics, which are calculated by the WFM servers:
|Interaction Volume||Forecast and Actual number of interactions.|
|AHT (Average handling Time)||Forecasted, Actual, Difference, and Difference % in the average handling time, in seconds.|
|Abandoned Interactions (%)||Scheduled, Calculated, Required, and Actual percentage of abandoned calls.|
|Service Level (%)||Scheduled, Calculated, Required, and Actual service level percentage.|
|Deferred Service Level (%)||Scheduled, Calculated, Required, and Actual deferred service level percentage.|
|Actual Queue||The actual number of interactions in the backlog queue at the end of the period.|
|ASA (Average Speed of Answer)||Scheduled, Calculated, Required, and Actual average speed of answer, in seconds.|
|Coverage||Number of agents scheduled for each activity. If an agent works only part of a time interval, only the portion during which the agent works (rounded to the nearest minute) is counted toward scheduled staffing. As a result, these values may be fractions or decimals. This column is now under Staffing in the grid.|
|Staffing||Number of agents Calculated and Required for each activity, and the difference between Coverage and Calculated and Coverage and Required staffing. The Required and Calculated values are taken from the forecast and are always whole numbers, but the Diff. Calc. and Diff. Req. values can be fractional.|
|Variance||Scheduled and Required variance. Optimal staffing value for the timestep minus the scheduled number of agents (Sch.), and the optimal staffing value for the timestep minus the required number of agents (Req.).
TipOptimal staffing is a calculation based on actual interaction volume, actual AHT, and the service objectives specified in the forecast. This value is not displayed on its own, but is used in calculating Variance values.
|Headcount||Scheduled and Actual headcount. Number of scheduled (Sch.) and actually working (Act.) agents. For more information, see description of Headcount in the Master Schedule Summary view.|
These statistics are presented for a 24-hour range, with 12 hours before, and 12 hours after, the current timestep. The displayed data is automatically refreshed at least once per minute.
For timesteps in the future, the displayed "actual" values are those that WFM Web anticipates by comparing past data with the planned forecast. These anticipated values do not affect the schedule, and they are not saved.
The anticipated values can help you make real-time changes to your site setup. For example, unneeded agents can be sent home if you are overstaffed, or extra agents can be called in if you are understaffed. You cannot change the schedule from the Performance views; use the Master Schedule Intra-Day view to do so.
