Guide to Analytics Dashboard

What is it?

The Solve Widget analytics dashboard is accessible after Forethought begins the organization's discovery stage. This dashboard will allow customers to create and edit workflows, see their performance, and provide Aggregate Statistics. 

Why is this important?

This dashboard allows Forethought customers to gain insights about traffic and usage of their Forethought widget. It gives customers the power to track pain points and to make the changes that lead to improvement throughout their widgets. 

Where can I find the analytics dashboard?

The Solve Widget analytics can be found by following these steps:

  1. Sign in to the Forethought dashboard.
  2. On the left pane, click Workflow Builder

If you do not see this, please contact Forethought support.

Aggregate Statistics

Total Chats: This data point shows the total number of interactions with the widget during the specified time period.

Total Deflected Chats: This data point shows the total number of interactions that resulted in a deflection during the time period.

Chat Deflection Rate: This data point shows the total percentage of interactions with the widget in the time period that resulted in a deflection. In this case, 68.9% of users were able to get answers to their questions using the widget, and 6.3% opened a ticket or a chat with an agent.

Total Estimated Cost Savings: This data point will be populated if you provide Forethought with your cost-per-ticket information. Using this, we can show basic cost savings by multiplying your cost-per-ticket by the number of resolutions the widget has achieved.

Intent Workflow Statistics

Each Intent Workflow has statistics that mirror the aggregate statistics above

  • Chats: Total interactions during the time period where this intent workflow was surfaced
  • Deflected: Number of interactions in this intent workflow that resulted in a deflection for the specified time period
  • Deflection Rate: Percentage of deflections versus total interactions over the time period.
    (Deflection Rate = Deflected/Inquiries)

Conversational Insights

Conversational Insights are the latest analytics built into Workflow Builders. They show important to see a more granular flow of traffic and insights such as where customers the traffic splits, where customers drop off during the conversation, and more! This helps you to improve your Forethought customer service experience. 


Why are Conversational Insights and Intent Workflow Statistics different?

Each conversation (even if the user went through multiple workflows) is only counted once in the intents Workflow Statistics table, so the number that gets incremented is the last intent that the user went through before they are handed off or counted as deflected. However, that is not how Conversational Insights are counted. 

We count Conversational Insights differently because people often have multiple questions within a conversation and can likely be routed to multiple workflows. This is also why Conversational Insights will have higher metrics than the overall intent workflow.

So, for example, if a user goes through 3 different workflows (A, B, and C) but ends in C and creates a ticket in that workflow, they would only be added to the C intent in the Intents Workflow Statistics table. However, the traffic of the user going through A, B, and C are captured in Conversational Insights.
