Service desk agents are the first contact between customers and our organization. They are natural problem solvers, so they will try to absorb as many requests as possible. But this comes at a price: Burnout and increase in breaches of SLAs. That’s why it’s important to analyze the agents workload and keep a balanced workload among the agents. On the other side, it’s also important for agents to compare themselves and see how they are doing.
This gadget displays the workload of agents for the period of time selected, where:
Time to resolution. Indicates the average time of the time to resolution: Time since an issue creation until a resolution has been set. And also the % of SLA met for those issues.
Time to first response. Indicates the average time of the time to first response: Time since an issue creation until the first response is given. And also the % of SLA met for those issues.
Workload. The workload of the agent indicating the total assigned requests out of the total requests.
The gadget also displays the Total Resolutions by agent in a bar chart. A resolution involves any way an issue can be closed.
We recommend to select a queue with all the requests (for that period of time), so you’ll be able to see the workload but also the resolutions. Because if you choose a queue with all unresolved requests, the total resolutions will be zero.
