Set Business Hours for Team Performance Reports

Interacting with your customers on social media is a great way to build relationships, address issues quickly and turn detractors in to promoters.

For those Customer Service teams that have set business hours, within Engage it is possible to report on your responsiveness compared to the hours that you are available.

For example, your team may only work between 9am and 5pm. If a customer tweets you at 5:05pm and the first reply is sent the next day at 9:05am the customer has waited for 16 hours for a response. However, the response time, in terms of when the Customer Service team could respond, is 5 minutes.
