Configuring Talkdesk Live (legacy)



Talkdesk Live (legacy) 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

To edit the settings of a dashboard widget, follow these steps:


  • Sign into your account as an administrator or supervisor.
  • Access the "Reporting” section [1].
  • Select the "Live (legacy)" tab [2].
  • Click the "Edit" button [3] (this will place the dashboard into "Edit Mode").


  • Once in Edit Mode, click the "Configure" icon on the top left corner of the widget.
  • This will open the Widget Properties, where you can modify the settings of your widget.
  • When you are finished editing the widget, click on "Done" [4].

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


Widget Title

Select a title to be displayed in your widget.  



You can customize your widgets in order to view the data broken down by ring group or team.
Depending on the metric, you are able to select "Breakdown By Ring Group", "Breakdown By Team", or "No breakdown":


When a breakdown is selected, the widget will be displayed as a table: 


  • You can hover over the abbreviations in the headers to confirm their meaning (e.g. BSY = Busy).
  • Each column can also be sorted alphabetically or in ascending/descending order by number.
  • When you apply a breakdown, it will not be possible to click on the widget to drill down into another detailed list.

If no option is selected ("No breakdown"), you will see the aggregated data for all teams and ring groups, and the corresponding graph:



These metrics allow you to select “Breakdown by Ring Group”:

  • Abandon Rate (%).
  • Abandon Time (avg).
  • Calls - Live.
  • Calls - Queued.
  • Service Level.
  • Wait Time - Current (max).
  • Wait time (avg).

And these metrics allow you to choose "Breakdown By Ring Group" or "Breakdown By Team":

  • Agents - Online.
  • Calls.
  • Calls - In Progress.
  • Calls - Inbound.
  • Calls - Outbound.
  • Duration - Inbound (avg).
  • Duration - Outbound (avg).
  • Duration - Current (max). 



The following are the default metrics for Talkdesk Live (legacy):

  • Service Level (%): percentage of calls answered within a predefined amount of time (“target time threshold”).
  • Abandon Time (Avg): average time callers waited for their call to be answered before hanging up (Note: Short Abandon calls are excluded from these metrics when this filter is enabled for the account or a specific number).
  • Abandon Rate (%): the percentage of calls that did not reach the agents because the customer disconnected while in the waiting queue or in the IVR (does not include short abandons).
  • Wait Time (Avg): the average time a call remains in the queue until an agent answers it.
  • Wait Time - Current (max): the current maximum time a call remains in the queue.
  • Duration Outbound (avg): the average duration of an outbound call.
  • Duration Inbound (avg): the average duration of an inbound call.

  • Last 5 min
  • Last 30 min

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

Graph Type

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




Target Threshold

Admins and Supervisors 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.
