Insight Builder: New Metrics for Agent Metrics and Conversation Metrics

Analysts will now see some of the existing metrics available in a new format (hh:mm:ss), which lets you visually plot time durations while still retaining the legibility of hours, minutes, and seconds.

  • Agent Metrics:
    • Available Time (hh:mm:ss)section: Any, Mail, Messaging, Task, Voice
    • Status Time (hh:mm:ss)section: Logged In Time, Away Time, Active Time
  • Conversation Metrics:
    • Duration - Average (hh:mm:ss)section:  Average Conversation Handle Time ,Avg Created-to-First Closed Time , Avg Created-to-Last Closed Time


What's Coming 

New ‘Text-Matching’ Condition: Words

A new way to do text-matching in Rules and People Match is coming soon! Words will allow Administrators to capture whole words without resorting to RegEx, which requires more technical knowledge to implement and master. For example, ask is contained in basketball and task but sometimes, you may only want a Rule or Boost to fire if the Customer says can I ask you something? and not I like basketballWords can certainly help with similar use cases.


Refreshed Color Scheme for Gladly Reports

A refreshed color scheme will soon come for all OOTB Reports. This upcoming update is cosmetic and will not affect reporting data.


Two New Reports Dashboards

We’re ecstatic to announce that the highly anticipated out-of-the-box reporting dashboards are coming soon! These dashboards will provide performance glimpses of the most commonly used reports and display Key Performance Indicators (KPI) metrics in Gladly.

Two OOTB dashboards are coming: Daily Trends and Coaching Dashboards

  • Daily Trends – Designed for contact center managers and decision-makers, it provides insight into how the entire contact center is doing for the day.
  • Coaching Dashboard – Provide people managers easy access to Agent metrics for coaching and opportunity reasons.

Check out the video below for a short overview. Stay tuned!


Attention Administrators: Entry Points Enhancement

We're reimagining the Channel Entry Points settings UI and UX making it simpler and easier to manage Channel Entry Point configurations. 


UI/UX may change

 


To help Gladly Administrators prepare and better understand the upcoming changes, we created the supporting materials below you can review in advance.

While this is an exciting update that promotes operational efficiency, the upcoming transition to the new experience doesn’t require immediate action on your end, so you can take your time to get acquainted with the new Entry Points UI/UX. Stay tuned!


Release Schedule Update

Please note that we are not releasing product updates the week of July 4 in observance of the Independence Day holiday. We’ll resume regular product updates the week after. If you’re closed on Monday, July 4th, ensure your Channels like IVR and chat are properly configured. See the Holiday Preparation Checklist for details.


Reporting Structure Maintenance

We're upgrading the software and infrastructure that power Gladly Reports on July 6 at 7 PT. The maintenance window will last around 30 minutes. During this time, please note that reporting data will be delayed an additional 30 minutes but will return to regular latency times after the upgrade. 


Resolved Issues

Incorrect Reporting of ‘Talk Time’ Metric in Contact Export – The “Talk Time” metric incorrectly included non-voice Contacts in the Contact Export. This is now fixed.

Agent Liveboards Displaying Incorrect Agent Status – We resolved an issue with Agent Liveboards that displayed Agents’ prior Away status instead of their current Active status

New Shopify Actions Feature

Without leaving Gladly, Agents can now quickly view the Financial Status of orders in the Order Card, whether the order is paid, refunded, partially refunded, etc.

Remember, you must have Actions activated to take advantage of any Shopify Actions features.


Basic Lookup Shopify Enhancement

Give your Agents the option to manually look up and link Customers to a relevant Shopify instance using an order number if automatic linking did not occur. The Order Number field appears upon selecting a Shopify instance to search in the Link Customer to External System page.

ACTION REQUIRED

Administrators must add Order Number as a Search Query Attribute by editing the Shopify App settings to allow Agents to do a basic lookup search by order number. Enter “order” as Attribute and “Order Number” as Label.


Klaviyo Restricted Keywords

Gladly notifies Klaviyo whenever a Conversation is opened or closed in Gladly so Klaviyo knows when to send (or not to send) emails to a Customer. With the new Restricted Keywords feature, any email addresses containing a restricted keyword will not be forwarded to Klaviyo. For example, retale as a restricted keyword will block forwarding all Conversation notifications from customer@retale.com to Klaviyo.


Regex Validation Error

In Rules and other configurations that allow RegEx as a Condition, you will no longer be able to save a Condition if it contains invalid RegEx. An error will appear with information on what’s causing the failure. We suggest using tools like Rubular to test RegEx.
