Let’s Talk focuses on two key metrics: How fast and how well are you responding? These metrics can be reported by multiple segments, from Interest Area to individual user. To learn more about reporting, see Understand The Dashboard.
The Let’s Talk! Dashboard offers data from two different N counts (totals). The first total (N) represents the Dialogues recieved and the second is the number of feedback scores received. These numbers are available on most reports. System Administrators and Global Users can review side-by-side comparisons of average Dialogue age and average feedback score for Categories, Interest Areas, and Users in the Comparsion Reports. Learn more in the Understand the Dashboard article under Comparison.
Users of Let’s Talk! can filter by any Dialogue metrics to generate a specific report showing the data of their choice. To learn how to filter reprots, check out the Understand the Dashboard article.
Every user recieves a weekly or monthly Dialogue digest reporting the happenings within his or her Let’s Talk! account. To learn more about these digests, or to customize your preferences, see Set My Digest Frequency.
All users have the ability to see their personal and team Let’s Talk! metrics, filter by categories, and download information into Word or PDF files. To learn more about the options available for your user type, check out the Understand the Dashboard article.

Note: If a Customer used an English-language form to submit a Dialogue in a language other than English, auto-translate will not be an option. Add the Translator of the relevant language as a Team Member to this Dialogue and ask for his or her assistance in an Internal Comment.
