Measuring the success of your support efforts is critical. Metrics help you understand your customers' experience, give you insight into weak spots of your operation, and help you track whether the changes you make are improving things.
In Kayako's Insights area, you have access to a wealth of built-in charts and metrics so you can quickly look in on how your support efforts are going. In addition, you can build and run your own custom reports, so you can answer any questions you have about your support interactions.
- To access Insights in Kayako, you will need an agent or admin account with the "Can access insights" permission.
From the agent area in Kayako, you can access Insights by clicking the chart button on the right-hand sidebar.
On the majority of the Insights pages, you will see a mix of metrics, graphs, and tables. In addition, most of them have the option to set a timeframe to restrict the data you are seeing. In the upper right-hand corner of the page, the calendar icon will let you choose or define a timeframe:
The last page in the section, 'Custom Reports' is where you will build and run your own reports, so you can answer any questions that are not answered with default metrics.
Using the links in the sidebar, you can peruse all of your different metrics and reporting options, which we will summarize here:
