Some key features of Talkdesk Live include Configurable Widgets and detailed Online Agents and Live Calls drill downs. Metric widgets listed as 'Now' (e.g.'Live' and 'In Progress' metrics), display results for events occurring at this exact present moment. Metric widget results for “Today", "Last Hour", "Last 30 Minutes" or "Last 5 Minutes" are refreshed every 2 minutes.
"Today" metrics are defined by the 0:00 am hour of the timezone defined under preferences.
To access Talkdesk Live:
- Sign into your account as an administrator or supervisor.
- Access the "Reporting” section on the top menu .
- Select the “Live" tab :
Filtering the Dashboard
The dashboard metrics in Talkdesk Live can quickly and easily be filtered to display only results for specific ring groups and/or teams, as required by each admin or supervisor while monitoring the calls:
- Click the drop down menus next to "Filter by Team" or "Filter by Ring Group"  to display the list of all the teams or ring groups in your account.
You can combine the Teams filter with the Ring Groups filter. To do this, tick the box next to the teams and ring groups that you wish to see metrics for .
Please note that these metrics can only be filtered by ring group:
- Abandon Rate.
- Abandon Time (avg).
- Calls - Queued.
- Calls - Live.
- Service Level.
- Wait Time - Current (max).
- Wait time (avg).
And these metrics can be filtered by team and/or ring group:
- Agents - Online.
- Calls - In Progress.
- Calls - Inbound.
- Calls - Outbound.
- Duration - Inbound (avg).
- Duration - Outbound (avg).
- Duration - Current (max).
Ticking 'Select All' will display results for all ring groups or teams  instead.
Note: When filtering by ring groups, calls made and received in dedicated phone numbers will not be shown. To display also dedicated lines make sure that you are not filtering by any ring group.
Drilling down into a detailed list of results
Click your required widget: e.g. click the Away agents portion (listed in yellow)  of the "Agents - Online" donut widget, to drill down into a detailed list of all your currently away agents:
Results will be displayed filtered, based on the group that you selected in the chart:
Note: Clicking the total count in the widget will display the entire result set.
Accessing Live Calls
Click the Live Calls widget  to see a list of all calls currently In Progress or Queued:
'In Progress' calls are the calls currently being handled by agents. 'Queued' are those calls currently in your waiting queue.
Use the drop down menu to switch between In Progress and Queued calls  (you can also display both), or filter your live calls by Team or Ring Group  to further refine your results:
Click the top bar headers to sort calls alphabetically by 'Type', 'Status', 'Agent', 'Contact' or 'Ring Groups' , or to list them by 'Duration' or 'Total Time'  in an ascending or descending order.
In case you have enabled Queue Callback, clicking the 'Callback' header will sort all callback requests currently in the waiting queue  (marked with a check mark).
Select the ellipsis button  on an 'In Progress' call to see the list of actions available for supervisors to take on that call:
- Monitor Call : Supervisors will be connected to the call via the Keypad in Talkdesk's main web application (not available in Salesforce).
- Copy SID : Having the call's unique identification number at hand can be particularly useful when you need to further analyze or troubleshoot a specific call. Copy the call's unique CallSID into your computer's clipboard. Open a new email message or text document and paste it there.
Note: In case you have integrated your Talkdesk account with Slack, while monitoring live calls and agents’ activities in Talkdesk Live, supervisors can also use the Slack integration to immediately alert all or selected agents based on real time events. Learn more here.
Accessing Online Agents
Clicking the Live Agents widget  will display the list of all currently logged in agents:
Filter your agents by status (Available, Away, Busy, custom agent status...), by team or ring group  to further refine your results; or choose "Select All" to see all:
Time in Status
Supervisors can also use this view to track how long each agent has been in the current status.
Click the 'Status Time' header  to sort agents by the time spent in their current status in an ascending or descending order.
Clicking the 'Name', 'Ring Groups' or 'Status' header will sort this drill-down view alphabetically .
To see your agents' status time directly from Talkdesk's Live dashboard instead, simply edit your 'Live Agents' widget to display a List 'Graph Type'  instead of 'Donut':
