Creating dashboards

Learn to construct powerful data visualizers for monitoring key metrics in NLX's Dialog Studio

Using templates

For your convenience, templates are available to use or easily build from. Simply start by selecting the + Add dashboard link:

  • Enter name of dashboard

  • Select a template

  • If needed, modify panels by hovering & selecting from the icons that appear (edit, duplicate, remove)

  • When done, click Save


Template details

Expand to read a description and panel setup of each template:

Overview template

Overview provides general traffic data on your bot. If system Analytics tags have been added to nodes in your intent flows, stats on these will also appear.

Panels included:

  • All conversations: Displays the total number of all conversations; a conversation is defined as a single interaction session between bot and user

  • All messages: Displays the total number of all messages sent by users

  • Traffic: Provides a graph that shows the number of conversations for each of the days defined in the From/To filter fields

  • Three analytics system tags labeled Automated conversations, Helpful conversations, and Not helpful conversations. Each gives a percentage for the metric and, below it, the aggregate ratio that led to the calculation of that percentage. The numerator in the ratio is the number of conversations or messages (depending on the data being calculated) that apply to that metric, while the denominator is the total number of conversations or messages. These analytics are based on tagging. Implementing tags in various places within an intent flow allows you to determine whether the conversation was helpful or not helpful (or -- if they successfully completed it -- automated) to the user based on where that user ends up in the conversation/intent flow

    • Automated conversations: Displays the percentage of conversations that were successfully concluded — not escalated or abandoned. This occurs when the user successfully reaches a point in the conversation tagged with the Automated system tag

    • Helpful conversations: Displays the percentage of conversations the user felt were helpful. This occurs when the user reaches a point in the conversation tagged with the Helpful system tag

    • Not helpful conversations: Displays the data for conversations that were unhelpful to the user. Again, this metric is the result of the user successfully reaching a point in the conversation tagged with the Not helpful system tag

Performance template

Performance monitors response times and operations of your webhook and API integrations; specifically, it provides a view into the performance of your Actions and Data requests.

Panels included:

  • Action invocations: The number of times an action is invoked

  • Action success rate: The rate determined by the number of times an action is invoked and successfully executed

  • Action response times: The average time it takes for an action to be invoked and executed

  • Performance by action: The average response time (seconds) and the success percentage for each action

  • Data request invocations: The number of times a data request is invoked

  • Data request success rate: The rate determined by the number of times a data request is sent and successfully retrieved

  • Data request response times: The average time it takes for a data request to be responded to

  • Performance by data request: The average response time (seconds) and the success percentage for each data request

User experience template

User experience focuses on how your users are experiencing a bot.

Panels included:

  • Intents recognized: The percentage determined by how many times the bot is successfully able to route the user to the correct intent

  • Avg NLP confidence score: The confidence level that the NLP has understood the users' utterances and has directed them to the correct intent

  • Dropoff rate: Percentage determined by how many times a user drops off after calling into the bot before being routed to any intent

  • Escalation rate: Percentage determined by how many times the bot escalates the user because it is not able to route the user to the correct intent

  • Trending phrases: The utterances that are frequently said by users to the bot, the number of times it has occurred, and whether it is trending up or down in the given time period

  • Intent performance: The average confidence score and number of conversations that have been routed to that intent

Did you know?

When editing a panel, a checklist is conveniently provided on the right to indicate the setup requirements of your selected Chart type.

  • Enter a name & description of the panel

  • Click Save when done configuring with the available options below


Chart type

Chart DescriptionExample

Value

Displays a single numerical output of a chosen metric

Sum of all Data requests invoked

Gauge

Displays a numerical value of a chosen metric against its maximum range

Sum of successful SMS actions sent against the range of all SMS actions sent

Pie chart

Displays numerical proportions of a chosen metric within a selected group

Data requests invoked as the chosen Metric and Data request as the selected Grouping for showing all data requests created in the workspace with their proportions when triggered in conversations

Bar chart

Displays vertical columns of the values of one or more chosen metrics over time

Sum of conversations through voice channels versus conversations through chat channels (using filters), set to a time interval of each day

Line chart

Displays changes in the values of one or more chosen metrics over time

Sum of Data requests invoked that have timed out (using filters with analytics tags applied to timeout nodes), set to a time interval of every hour

Box plot

Displays the median value of a chosen metric along the range of its captured minimum and maximum values

Median value of Action response times (in seconds) displayed within its range of min and max values

Table

Displays one or more chosen metrics in rows and columns. Rows are auto-generated based on the Grouping type selected in Column 1 of your table

Sum of conversations occurring with bots and subsequent columns showing the sum of conversations occurring in different cities (using filters)


Theme
