Compare Teams Report


The Compare Teams report enables the comparison of the performance of multiple teams in the contact center. Comparing teams in this way enables managers to target groups that deserve praise or require improvement. The report drills from the team level down to the agent level (as well as question level) to determine root causes. This report is commonly used by contact center managers to gain a holistic as well as a comparative overview of their teams.

Setting Up a Report 

The report allows the user to select a questionnaire, a question group or even a particular question, and view the results for all available teams as a time-series graph. It is also possible to select a specific team and view its particular results only.

To compare teams:

Select Reports > Compare Teams from the left-hand menu. The Compare Teams screen will open.

Follow the steps to set up the Compare Teams report:

  1. Select a team from the Teams drop-down menu to create a report based on the specific team/teams (optional). Do not select any team if you would like to compare results for all available teams.
  2. Select a questionnaire from the Questionnaires drop-down menu (mandatory).
  3. Select a question section from the Question Groups drop-down menu to create a report based on the specific question group/groups (optional).
  4. Select a question from the Questions drop-down menu to create a report based on the specific question/questions (optional).
  5. Optionally enter a Target score (0-100) in percentA line on the report will appear, clearly indicating the target score.
  6. Click Calculate report. The Compare Teams report will display.

If no teams are selected in the Teams drop-down menu, the chart represents results for all available teams. Selection of a questionnaire is mandatory.

Hover the mouse cursor over the chart to view details. A tooltip with details for the selected point in time will appear.

The tooltip contains the following information:

  • Team – name of the selected team
  • Skill score (difference from target) – score for the selected questionnaire (if the target score was configured, the percentage difference between the received score and the target score will be displayed in red color)
  • Date – selected point in time

Setting a Date Range

By default, the report displays the last three months. The date range displayed can be modified using the time period selector at the top of the report screen.

Click a different date range (one, six or twelve months) to view a shorter or longer time period. Select a shorter range if the reviews are close together in time or a longer range if the reviews are further apart in time. It is also possible to select All time to display all available data.

To define a custom date range, click the Custom date range button. A calendar will display. The currently selected date range is highlighted in blue.

Click on the calendar to select the first day of the custom date range. Then click on the calendar to select the last day. The selected date range will be highlighted in blue.

Use arrows at the top corners to go to the previous/next month.

Alternatively, change the date range using the date range scale bar at the bottom of the report screen. The date range scale bar displays all data available from when the questionnaire was first used. The default date range shows the last three months of data.

Click inside the highlighted area to drag and move the defined date range.

Drag the bar to extend or shrink the date range.

The time displayed corresponds to the timezone of the current user. Not necessarily the server timezone. 
Period To as defined in the Review criteria is used as the decisive date when a Review score is shown in the report/chart

Switching Between Views

To switch between Chart and Table views, click on the Chart (

) or Table (
) button at the top right corner of the report screen.

The Table view contains data used to generate the chart. The same data is exported to Excel upon export.

Hover the mouse cursor over the table to view details. A tooltip with details for the selected item will appear.

Drilling Down

Click on any point in time on the line to drill down.

The report will display the results of the individual members of the selected team. Individual lines on the chart will represent the scores of each agent for the selected questionnaire, question group or question. The dotted lines represent the call center average and the team score average. Team members displayed are listed in the legend.

After drilling down, the view can be switched between Graph and Table view if needed.

Team Score Average

Note that after drilling down or after selecting a particular team, a new parameter is calculated: Team Score Average.

Based on the way that the reviews were planned, the Team Score Average can be calculated in the following ways:

  • if the reviews were completed during the review period planned by Scheduler, the Time value in the table represents the end date of the review period (the "To" date) and the average is calculated from all reviews completed during this period
  • if the reviews were completed "ad-hoc" from the Conversation Explorer, the Time value in the table represents the date when the reviewed call has happened and the average is calculated from all completed reviews of calls which happened on that day

In both cases: if only one agent was evaluated during the period/on that day, the Team Average Score will be the same as the review score.

Click on an agents' line to drill down again.

The Team and Agent Skills report will open, showing the question groups results for the selected agent. Additionally, the question groups will display within the legend to the right of the report screen.

Selecting Individual Results

The legend initially shows all available teams (if no team was selected at the beginning). After drilling down, it shows all agents which are members of the selected team.

Click on a particular legend item to unselect it. The unselected items appear in gray on the legend and disappear from the chart. Click any grayed-out item to select it again. 

Click Unselect all to gray out all items. Then click on the individual item or items to display on the chart. Click Select all to display all items again.

Another way to display individual results is by highlighting:

  1. Ensure that the Select all option is selected.
  2. Hover the mouse over the legend item that should be highlighted.
  3. The line representing the selected item will remain on the chart. The rest of the items will be grayed out.

A notification about the planned download will display at the bottom.
