How do this week's contact volumes compare with last week's?

This report is a chart that shows the contact volumes for the past two weeks separated by day. Here’s what it will look like:

Step 1: Add the Contacts measure

  1. Click Data Explorer in the top menu.
  2. Click New Report (upper left corner of the page). The blank report page appears.
  3. Click [measure]. The Select Measure window opens.
  4. Select Contacts.
  5. Click Add. The Measure: Contacts window closes, and the basic report appears. At this point, it shows the total number of contacts taken since your organization began using Calabrio ONE:

Step 2: Group the contacts by day

  1. Click [grouping]. The Select Grouping window opens.
  2. Click Time (upper right corner of the window).
  3. Select Contact Start Time.
  4. In the Period panel, select Day of Week.
  5. Click Add. The Grouping: Day of Week window closes, and the report now looks like this. The total number of contacts from Step 1 is now divided by the day of the week that the contact happened.

  6. Click [grouping].
  7. Click Time.
  8. Select Contact Start Time.
  9. In the Period panel, select Day of Month.
  10. Click Add. The report now looks like this. We’ve shown only the first few rows, but you get the idea.

Step 3: Limit to contact from the past two weeks

Now let’s get rid of contacts older than two weeks.

  1. Click [limit]. The Select Filter window opens.
  2. Click Time.
  3. Select Contact Start Time.
  4. In the Period panel, select Contact Start Time.
  5. Click Add Filter (the + icon). The Select Period window opens.

  6. Select Day of Month.
  7. Click OK. The Select Period window closes.
  8. Enter “13” in the Last column.
  9. Select This.

  10. Click Add. The Filter: Contact Start Time window closes. Nice, now we get some usable info!

Step 4: (Optional) Format the report as a chart

If you would prefer to keep the report as a table, skip this step.

  1. Click View (upper right corner of the page).
  2. Under View Type, select Column.
  3. Under Legend, select None from the Location drop-down list.
  4. Under Data Series Format, select On from the Data Labels drop-down list.

Step 5: Name and save the report

  1. Click Save (upper left corner of the page). The Save Report window opens.
  2. Enter a name for the report.
