Analytics Overview in UseResponse

UseResponse Analytics tool allows tracking key metrics on the incoming requests to ensure that customers received the highest level of support.

By default, only Administrators of the system can manage analytic reports. That could be changed for other roles in Administration » Roles & Groups by creating a new role with "Manage Analytics" permission and assigning support agent to it.


Available only in Enterprise plan and it should be enabled manually in Menu » Analytics in the agent interface


Understanding of Analytic Reports

There are several analytic reports out of the box with basic metrics on team performance, forum trends, and activity in your community. The list of available reports depends on UseResponse solutions you purchased:

  • Insights - provides data on the total volume of queries and the current load on your support team;
  • Performance - gives you an understanding of whether your customers receive the answers in a fast and efficient way;
  • Votes & Trends - lets you analyze the most active users in the community, the most popular ideas at a certain period of time and other voting trends. The report is available only with Feedback solution enabled;
  • Search Insights - shows visitors search data including top search queries entered in your help center and searches that didn't give any result.

Custom Reports

You can build own custom reports by clicking plus icon at the top left of the analytics page and selecting Analytics: Report in the list. You should specify key metrics (maximum 6 in one report), certain conditions if needed and add some graphic to visualize the data with timelines, histograms or pie charts. Once you save a new report, you'll also see the table list of requests or users to analyze metrics in details.

At the top of reports, you can find quick filters option by clicking on which you are able to set a specific reporting date range or filter requests/users on the go without any report management.
