Activities, an Agent Productivity app that is a part of Agent Workspace, provides a view of a list of activities per agent, as well as key details on each individual action, based on the agent’s roles and permissions. For more information on roles and permissions, please visit our documentation here.
The app displays a list of historical data regarding calls (incoming and outgoing calls, including missed, abandoned, and transferred calls) and SMS (incoming and outgoing).
Below, you can read our guide to learn more about:

Enter the Talkdesk CX Cloud and click on the "Activities"  icon on the left menu’s app listing.
Viewing Activities Log Information
When entering the app, the top left corner of the screen will display the total number of activities  you have listed, above the actual list of results.
The screen’s information is divided into the following fields:
- “Activity”  - The type of activity (e.g. Inbound or Outbound calls)
- “Agent”  - The name of the agent that handled the call.
- “When”  - The date and time of the activity (e.g. when it was picked up by the agent or when it reached the contact center).
- "Ring groups"  - Indicates the ring groups associated with the call (only applicable to calls). If a ring group is not displayed, it's because it was directly assigned to another agent.
- "Duration"  - The length in minutes and seconds (when applicable).
Note: The date and time of the activity in the “When” column respect the timezone defined in the Preferences section. The date and time displayed to inform about the last Activities update respect the timezone defined in the user’s device.
All activities from an interaction are shown on this main screen, providing complete information to agents regarding the details of the contact with customers.
For calls, this includes, for example, if the call was transferred to another agent, thus giving full context to customer interactions.
For SMS it shows every time the SMS is transferred back to the queue to be handled later by another agent.
- Regarding Abandoned Calls: Activities only lists abandoned calls that entered a queue before being abandoned (this is, that could have reached an agent) as opposed to Contact Activity which displays all abandoned calls.
- Regarding Voicemails: These are not listed in Activities. When a call rings to an agent, is not answered by the agent and goes to voicemail, only a missed call activity is being represented. To consult voicemails, at the moment, please go to the Voicemails App.
Each listing result features the quick action “Click-to-Call”  which starts calling the number immediately on Conversations. When applicable, the quick action “Evaluate” may also be available.
Note: to know more about initiating an Evaluation through the quick action “Evaluate”, please refer to this page.
Using the Filters
Using filters is an effective way to refine your search results. To open the Filters menu, press the Filters  icon on the far right of the screen, which will open a right-side panel with the following dropdown options:
- "Activity type"  - The type of Call you want to search.
- "Contact"  - Search for one specific contact.
- "Agent"  - Search by the agent that handled the call.
- "When"  - Ability to filter by date/time when the call was handled.
- "Ring groups"  - You can choose one or more ring groups in this filter.
After making your choices, you will need to press one of the choices at the bottom:
- Apply  - The filters will only take effect once you click this button.
- Clear  - Click to reset all filters chosen.
By applying the filters, you will be directed back to the main Activities page, where you will be able to see a blue badge filter indicator , over the "Filters" icon. This badge indicates how many filters are currently applied in your search.
The “Active Filters” bar  is now displayed as well, beneath the number of total Activities they have matched. This bar displays which filters are currently applied. You can remove each filter individually, by clicking the “X” icon  next to each name.
The Clear all  button at the far right of the bar will remove all filters from the search you have submitted.
Accessing the Snapshot Tab
To find more details on the activity of each call, you can access the Snapshot Tab. By clicking on each activity’s specific row, a panel will open with the “Activity Details”. Here you can find more information regarding:
