  • Chat Display % is the amount of time chat is shown and available for your Customers to use.

Take Action

Once you understand the report, you can take action and make improvements.

High Chat Display %

If you are throttling a high % of incoming chats, take note of the following points:

  • How is your Customer experience affected if you are throttling a high number of incoming chats?
  • Look at your other communication Channels and review the volume. Are you only struggling to keep up with chat, or is it also across other Channels?
  • Look at your CSAT and FCR. See how those are affected by throttling chat.
  • Think about how often you have to throttle chat. Consider adjusting your staffing model if there is a steady increase in incoming volume.

Low Chat Display %

Whether you are sparingly throttling chat or not, that is great news! It means that your Customers can contact you easily.

  • Make sure you meet your CSAT, SLA, and FCR goals as they contribute to the Customer Experience.
  • Look at your other Channels to see if one of them needs improvement. You may be able to adjust your staffing by assigning Agents to underperforming Channels.

No Chat Display %

The report UI and CSV download will not show results if there aren't chat throttling activities based on the date filters used.
