Reports

View and analyze your messaging, voice, and flow execution traffic

The Reports section helps you view and analyze your messaging and flow traffic across various services. Webex Connect provides reporting at three levels - platform level summary, channel asset level summary, and service level summary.

Here's a brief description of the reports available at each level.

Platform Summary

The platform summary report provides the aggregated count of the total number of messages sent and received across various channels within the specified time period.

Select Platform > Summary option under the Entity dropdown and mention the time period as shown below. In this dropdown, Services, Sender ID, Numbers, and Apps are differentiated.

1133

The details of messages sent (i.e., messages submitted and processed for delivery) and messages received across various channels will be available as shown below. You can simply hover over the line graph to get the details for any specific day within the selected time period.

If needed, you can download the reports in PNG, JPEG, PDF, SVG, CSV, and XLS format by clicking the hamburger menu icon towards the top-right side of the chart, as shown below.

Reports for Outbound Emails

Sample report for Email channel usage at a service level.

The above screenshot shows details for Email channel usage at a service level with the following data points:

  • Total number of requests
  • Number of email messages sent
  • Number of email messages submitted for processing
  • Number of email messages scheduled (email messages waiting to be submitted)
  • Number of email messages rejected (email messages rejected by the platform due to various reasons)
  • Number and percentage of email messages delivered (email messages with confirmed delivery receipt)
  • Number and percentage of email messages failed
  • Total links clicked
  • Number of email messages hard bounced (not delivered because of invalid email address, etc.)
  • Number of email messages soft bounced (not delivered because of insufficient space in the inbox, etc.)
  • Number of complaints (phishing, abuse, spam, etc.)

Since it’s not possible to display all the sub-categories at the high-level report, a sub-report for bounced emails and complaints is displayed, called Messages Bounced and Email Complaints.

Channel Asset Level Reports

Alternatively, the reports can be viewed at a channel asset level by selecting the channel asset for example a Number (in case of SMS and Voice), or an App (for OTT channels such as Apple Messages for Business and WhatsApp).

Select your desired number or the app name from the Entity dropdown and mention the time period as shown below.

The details of messages received on the selected channel asset (i.e. a number or an app) will be available as shown below. This is the aggregated count of messages received on the select asset across various services within Webex Connect where the selected asset is being used. Hover over the line graph to get the details of the number of messages received on any given day within the selected time period.

Service Level Reports

While the high-level stats of messaging, flow execution, and API invocation details for each service are visible as soon as you enter the service-specific dashboard (sample below), more granular information about channel usage and flow executions are present within the Reports section.

What's multi-part SMS message count

The standard character limit for a single SMS is 160 characters. If you send an SMS message that contains more than 160 characters, the message is split into smaller chunks at the operator end and is concatenated at the device end to form a single message for the recipient. If you send a message that contains 200 characters, the multi-part message count would be 2.
