Inbox report

Overview

The Inbox report allows you to look at all your inboxes at once to ensure nothing falls through the cracks. It is crucial to understanding the total volume of communications occurring, what is new in that volume, and what has been resolved.

For any given time period, you can see right away:

  • Volumes of communications (Conversations, Message received, Messages sent)
  • New workload (New conversations, Conversations moved to inbox)
  • Finished workload (Resolved conversations, Archived conversations, Conversations moved away)
  • Workload still open (Unresolved conversations, Open conversations)

Anatomy of the Inbox report

*These terms are not displayed on the table by default. Click the 3 dots on the top right of the table to select them to view.

Heatmap

If you’re on a Prime plan or above, you’ll see a second Heatmap tab at the top of your Inbox report. The heatmap allows you to easily understand when conversation volumes are high, and quickly reference patterns in your team’s workload. Metrics are broken down by day of the week, and then by hours of the day. 

Metrics that can be displayed in a heatmap are: 

  • New conversations
  • Messages received
  • Messages sent

The metric is color-graded-- time periods with the highest volumes are highlighted in red. This way, you can easily see your team’s busiest hours/days, and determine which times require the most attention/staffing.

FAQ

What happens when a conversation moves to another inbox?

The Inbox report is meant to track moves between inboxes, and what happened in an inbox before it moves away. As a consequence, metrics will reflect what happened in the inbox the event happened in, not the inbox a conversation currently is in.

Ex: a conversation resolved in inbox A and then moved to inbox B will count as a resolved conversation for inbox A only.
