It’s a great sign when a company is able to manage and address employee concerns quickly and efficiently. The Average time to resolution KPI  is one of a set of vital HR KPIs created in bob to help you track the average time it takes for a case in Your voice to go from open to closed - meaning the time it takes from the day the initial message was sent by an anonymous employee to the day the case was archived.

Located in the KPI Dashboards module under the Your voice category, the Average time to resolution KPI is very useful for monitoring company trends over time, such as the types of cases reported, the time it takes each representative to bring a case to resolution and whether there is an overall increase or decrease of Average time to resolution within a given date range.


Average time to resolution KPI is calculated by adding the sum of every case’s individual time to resolution/ divided by the number of total cases.


How to use the Average time to resolution KPI

When you head over to the Average time to resolution KPI, you will be able to view the Average time to resolution for cases within a particular month, quarter, or year with a range of filters and groupings. Data is displayed for each period in the selected time range via color-coordinated, easy-to-read bars and graphs. To get started, follow these steps:

Step 1: Set up category view settings

You can set bob to view KPI data for a particular time period via Date range and View. Whenever you configure these settings, it will impact how all of the KPI categories will be showcased in bob.
