Metrics used for the Channel Wait Time report #
Review the definition of each metric and how it’s used to calculate data. These are fields you’ll see in the CSV download.
|Ended Date||Day, Week, etc. based on the selected filters. This refers to the date/time when the Contact ended.|
|Avg Queued-to-Fulfilled Time within Business Hours||Average duration between contact queued and fulfilled within business hours.|
|Avg Queued-to-Fulfilled Time||Average duration of time from when the Contact was first queued to when it was fulfilled.||For inbound Contacts only, and only for Fulfilled Contacts|
Note – For metrics that are durations of time, the report in the UI will show time in hh:mm:ss (Hours, Minutes, Seconds) or d:hh:mm:ss (Days, Hours, Minutes, Seconds) format, while the downloaded CSV will show time in raw Seconds.

You can filter the report using the following criteria. This is how you start segmenting the data based on what you are trying to learn. You can learn more about filters here.
