Report Generation

When you select option Reports from the menu on the left, the application pane will display the list of available reports. By default, these are the predefined reports supplied with Bright Pattern Contact Center. If you have previously created some custom reports using Jaspersoft Studio and uploaded their definitions into the system, such custom reports will also appear in the list of reports. For more information about stock and custom report definitions, see section Report Templates of the Contact Center Administrator Guide.

Reports overview

The reports are grouped by the type of contact center resources that they describe. Within each group, the reports are listed in alphabetical order according to the names of the corresponding report definitions. A description is provided for each report. If a description does not fit on the screen, hover over it to see the full text of the description in a tooltip box.

Select the desired type of report from the list. In the view that appears, use the report generation filters to select the resource for which you want to generate the report and to specify the reporting interval. Depending on the report type, you can select multiple resources and apply additional filters.

How to Run Reports

Run Report

The report will appear in a separate browser tab/window and occupy the entire available browser window space. Thus, you can have multiple reports open in your browser at the same time. Generated reports will continue to be available for viewing even when you close the Contact Center Administrator application. Depending on the amount of data, the generated report may occupy more than one page.

The generated report opens in a new browser tab/window

How to View and Use the Generated Report

The generated report appears as a static table of data within your browser tab/window. Usable links for navigation and export are located at the top of the page. If you export the report to a format such as .XLS, you can filter, sort, and reformat the data just as you would for any other spreadsheet.


To navigate through the contents of the report, use the page navigation arrows or enter the page number you wish to view.


To learn more about the metrics provided by each report, see sections Detail Reports and Aggregate Reports.

Exporting Reports

To export the generated report, choose the format (PDF, XLS, CSV, or TXT), and click the corresponding link.

Running the Report Again

To run the same report for a different resource and/or different reporting interval, simply change the filter setting and click the Run Report button again.

Going Back to Reports

To return to the list of reports, go back to the Contact Center Administrator application, section Reports, in your other browser tab or window.

Scheduling Reports

You can also schedule automatic generation of reports and their delivery to specified destinations as email attachments or via FTP. For more information, see Scheduling Reports.

Interaction Records Search

When you select the Interaction Records tab from the top of the screen, the application pane will initially display a search page where you define media type(s) of the interactions you are looking for as well as other search criteria, such as time frame, participating agent(s), and/or service(s) involved.

This section offers an overview of the Interaction Records Search feature. For detailed descriptions of search criteria and search results, see sections List of Interaction Records Search Criteria and Search Results.

Please note, only completed interaction segments appear in the Interaction Records search. For emails, this means that an email will only appear in search results after it has been replied to, closed without reply, or saved as a draft. Thus, emails in the initial distribution queue will not be shown.

The standard aggregation period for the raw data used to produce detailed interaction records and historical reports is 15 minutes; therefore, under normal circumstances, detailed records for completed interactions and agent activities is available in Interaction Records and Agent Timeline with a maximum delay of 15 minutes.

Adding Search Conditions

Your search criteria can have any number of conditions (i.e., search criteria). To add a condition to your search, click add condition. To edit or delete an existing condition, use the mouse-over operation.

Saving Search Conditions

You can save a set of search conditions for future use--a helpful capability for when you regularly run the same searches and you do not want to add conditions manually each time you search. To save a set of search conditions, click Save and assign a name to it. To use a previously saved set of search conditions, click Load, and select its name from the drop-down menu.

Click "Save" to save your search conditions for future use

Viewing Search Results

When all desired search conditions are specified, click the Search button. The Search Results page will open with the list of interaction records matching your search criteria. Each row of the displayed table describes a single interaction.

Search results

Note that an interaction may have multiple segments (e.g., when a call was handled by multiple agents). The number of segments in a call is shown in the Segments column. You can see details for each segment of a selected call by clicking that number.

Some columns show data that is media-type specific (e.g., Case ID Subject is only relevant for emails). You can adjust the format of your table to display only the columns for the data that you need. To remove columns, hover over any column header, open the drop-down menu, and unselect the columns for the data you do not need.

You can download all records that appear in the Search Results page in the .CSV format. To export the records, click the export button at the bottom of the page.

You can also manually download email content, call recordings, and call progress analysis (CPA) recordings for the interactions shown in the Search Results page. Note that manual download is limited to up to 100 emails, 100 call recordings, and 500 CPA recordings, respectively.

Periodic automated export of call/CPA recordings is configured via Services and Campaigns > Results Tab of the Contact Center Administrator application.

Erasing Interaction Content

The Erase feature for an interaction record allows you to remove the content of the record (i.e., voice recording and/or transcript for a call, the transcript for a chat, message body for an email, etc.), which may be necessary in order to comply with privacy laws or security standards. When taking this action, note that you can delete the content of one interaction at a time. For bulk erasure of interaction content, see the Contact Center Administrator Guide, section Results Tab > Interactions Erasing.

How to Erase Interaction Content

To erase content of a single interaction, take the following steps:

  1. Configure the desired criteria for your records search and find the desired interaction record.
  2. Open the record for review by clicking it's content item.
  3. At the bottom of the record, select the Erase Interaction-Records-Erase-Button-53.PNG button; this will pop the Erase interaction window


  4. Select Items to erase, which displays the type of content you wish to erase (e.g., a voice recording, a transcript, or both)
  5. Fill in the mandatory Reason field; this allows you to provide a reason the content was erased.
  6. Select the Erase button and you will see a new prompt, warning you that erasing the interaction is permanent.


  7. Select the Erase button again and the interaction will be permanently erased. Note that for email interactions, the Erase function erases content of one email message at a time. For other media types (voice, chat), the content of the entire interaction will be erased at once, regardless of the number of interaction segments.

Note that in the interaction window, if you select the segment that was erased, a message will display the time, date, user, and reason the interaction was erased.


Agent Activity Search

When you select option Agent Timeline from the menu on the left, you will see a set of search filters where you select an agent and set a desired time frame. Click the Search button.

The search results pane displays all states within all working sessions of the selected agent that fit in the specified time frame. States are represented by the same icons that are used in the Agent Desktop application. For each state, information about its start time, end time, and duration is provided. For interaction-handling states (Busy and After-Call Work), the media type of the handled interaction is displayed.

For agent sessions where screen recording was used, a screen recording icon Reporting-reference-guide-image8.PNG is displayed for all states within those sessions. See section Screen Recordings for more information.
