Chat performance

The Chat performance provides comprehensive data, covering various key metrics about the chat’s overall effectiveness: 

  1. Total Chats
    This counts the number of times a user opens a chat widget. It will be deemed a single chat session if the user revisits the widget within 3 hours of the last interaction. If the user restarts the conversation or refreshes the browser tab within 3 hours, it will only count as 1 chat session.

  2. Deflections
    Counts chat sessions where the user was not transferred to a human agent (handoff) or did not issue a ticket. Even if a single chat session involved multiple handoffs or generated several tickets, it counts as one non-deflected chat.

  3. Average CSAT
    The average Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) scores from chats.

  4. Relevance (only visible when Discover is enabled)
    Uses AI to rate how well the response addresses the user's inquiry. Each deflected chat receives one relevance rating. Non-deflected chats and some historical chats won’t have a relevance rating.

  5. Engagement (only visible when Discover is enabled)
    Uses AI to determine if the user stayed engaged throughout the chat or dropped off midway.

  6. Quick Feedback
    Direct feedback from users about the usefulness of the article when it was surfaced.

  7. Realized Savings
    This is dollar savings based on the configuration in your organization.


Insights card

The Insights Card provides essential information about your chat performance. It highlights areas that need attention and offers suggestions for improvement. Your dashboard displays three different insight cards, but some may not be visible if Discover is not enabled in your Forethought dashboard.

1. Worst performing workflow

This displays the top three workflows with the highest number of non-deflected chats, pinpointing workflows that need immediate attention. By reviewing where customers frequently drop off and enhancing these workflows, you can improve both self-service rates and customer satisfaction. It counts all conversations across all workflows and shows the top three workflows with the highest non-deflection rates for the given date range.

2. Most cost-inefficient chat topics

This card is only visible to customers with Discover. It shows the top three chat topics with the most potential savings. To maximize these potential savings, we recommend creating workflows or knowledge articles based on the performance of existing workflows, agent responses, and identified knowledge gaps.

3. Most unhappy topics

This is only visible to customers with Discover. This section highlights the top three chat topics with the lowest Customer Satisfaction Survey scores.
