Configuring Talkdesk Live



Talkdesk Live can be configured to display a customized dashboard tailored for your call center's specific needs. Each agent can customize his/her own dashboard.  

Editing Widgets

  • Sign into your account as an administrator or supervisor.
  • Access the "Reporting” section on the top menu.
  • Select the “Live" tab.
  • Click the "Edit" button [1] (this will place the dashboard into "Edit Mode").
  • Once in Edit Mode, click the "Configure" icon [2] on the top left corner of the widget.

The following properties are editable in Talkdesk Live for each dashboard widget:

Time Filters (If applicable)

  • Last 5 min
  • Last 30 min
  • Last hour
  • Today

Note: the above time metrics are refreshed every 2 minutes. 

  • Now: all live and current metrics refer to events occurring at the present time.

Graph Type

You can select from four available graph types: Donut, Metric, Gauge or List depending on the metric selected.


Target Threshold

Enterprise and Professional customers can also set the target thresholds to be displayed for each widget:

  • Widgets will have the ability to display warnings and alerts of the performance of a KPI against preset target thresholds. For each metric, you will have the option to set two thresholds - an upper and lower target.
  • Additionally, for widgets using the Gauge graph type, a minimum and maximum threshold value is required to be set.
  • To flip the direction of your metric thresholds, click the "reverse" icon.
  • Values must also be sequential (largest to smallest OR smallest to largest)
  • If lower target = upper target value, "yellow" range will not be shown.
