Real Time Monitoring
The Real-Time Monitoring interface enables you to get an insight into your daily operations, such as the status of your agents and your inbound and outbound activities. You can also listen to ongoing conversations, talk to an agent without the customer hearing, transfer agents between projects, or change the agents’ status.

To Access the Real-Time Monitoring Interface
- From the VCC Live menu, select Monitoring > Real-time monitoring.
The filtering options allow you to filter data in the Users pane.
|Filters Users by username or name.
|Filters Users by project. The drop-down list displays only those projects in which there are currently agents logged-in. Examines both primary and secondary logins.
|Filters Users by Team name.
|Filters Users by agent status.
|Filters Users by user type (admin or agent). The drop-down list displays only those user types which is used by at least one of the currently users logged-in.
Changing User Status or Project Remotely
The Change status or project function enables you to remotely log off or change the status of agent users, as well as transfer them between projects. When transferring agent users between projects, only those projects are displayed that a user is assigned to. hen an agent user that you want to transfer is using a break code, the transfer will take place once the user returns from AUX. If an agent user is in Unavailable state, the transfer won’t take place.
For details about how to change the agents’ status, see Changing Agent Status.
To Transfer Agents Between Projects
- From the VCC Live menu, select Monitoring > Real-time monitoring
- From the Change status or project drop-down list, select the Move agent(s) to another project option.
Tip: When switching agents’ projects, you may send them a pop-up message with a previously set up message.
Actions Menu Options
The Actions menu provides additional interfaces as well as options to interact with users and calls.
|Displays a graphical chart of three selected projects, featuring the number of ongoing calls, logged-in agents, calls initiated, and recently dropped calls.
|Opens user guide.
|Allows you to send a message to the selected agents. The message is displayed as a pop-up information dialog to the users. The users cannot reply to this message. The messages you send can be saved.

|Effective project ID
|Current Project ID
|The current project’s identifier number.
|The phone number the call was initiated from.
|The phone number the call was initiated towards.
|Phone number label
|Phone Number Label
|The phone number’s label. You can edit phone number labels on the Phone numbers interface.
|The direction of the call. (Inbound or Outbound).
|The agent’s primary project.
|Primary project ID

|The version of the VCC Live software currently installed.
|The IP address of the user.
|The queue from which the client was connected to the agent.
|Name of the project.
|Project’s identifier number. It is generated when a project is created.
|The dialing mode that was used to initiate the call. For the Predictive dialing mode, it also displays the predictive dialer submodes to indicate how optimal the dialer configurations are. (Submodes: Predictive-Power: The number of active agents drops below the threshold set in the Agent limit field. Predictive-Static: The number of active agents are sufficient for the current configuration, but the number of successful calls in the period is insufficient. Predictive-Adaptive: The current configuration is optimal, based on the number of agents and calls initiated.)
|Number of records in the project’s database.
|DB state (%)
|Database Utilization (%)
|Percentage of handled records in the database, in other words: percentage of Finished records from the Database Size (“Database Size” – “Available to Call”) / “Database Size”.
|Available to call
|Available to Call
|Records still to be called that have anything apart from a Finished disposition.

|Dropped Calls (%)
|Percentage of initiated calls that were recently dropped. It is recommended to monitor this number for an extended period of time (at least for 5 to 60 minutes) to get a better understanding of overall performance.
|Number of recently connected calls. (The call has been answered and connected to an agent.) It is recommended to monitor this number for an extended period of time (at least for 5 to 60 minutes) to get a better understanding of overall performance.

|Connection Ratio (%)
|Percentage of initiated calls that have been recently connected. It is recommended to monitor this number for an extended period of time (at least for 5 to 60 minutes) to get a better understanding of overall performance.
|Number of initiated calls that have been recently allocated an Unavailable or Temporarily Not Available disposition. It is recommended to monitor this number for an extended period of time (at least for 5 to 60 minutes) to get a better understanding of overall performance.
|Number of calls that have been recently allocated a Unavailable disposition. It is recommended to monitor this number for an extended period of time (at least for 5 to 60 minutes) to get a better understanding of overall performance.
