SLA reports


The SLA report gives you insights on your SLA rules. It contains an overview of conversations covered by SLA rules, breaches, as well as advanced breakdowns on your response and resolutions times.

SLA breach definition

How does Front identify an SLA breach?

SLA reports are linked to SLA rules. With these SLA rules, a tag is added each time an SLA breach happens. The SLA report counts an SLA breach if a conversation gets tagged at least once with the SLA tag within the time period of the report. Removing the SLA breach tag from the conversation does not impact this, as the SLA breach will still be counted by the SLA report.


The SLA rule VIP customers adds the SLA breach tag on a conversation on April 7th. You reply right after it's added and the SLA breach tag is removed automatically.

If your SLA report time period is:

  • April 6th to April 8th: the conversation counts as an SLA breach for the report.
  • April 8th to April 20th: the conversation does not count as an SLA breach. The breach happened before the time period requested.

From an SLA rule

When creating or editing an SLA rule, you have the option to create the corresponding SLA report. The report will automatically be filtered on the inbox selected in the Scope section of the SLA rule.


Why is the All conversations metric so high?

The All conversations metric in the SLA report includes all conversations that match the report filters you've chosen, not the number of times your SLA rule ran. To get more specific reporting, you can add a rule that will tag conversations matching your SLA rule, and then filter your SLA report by that tag.
