Explore offers pre-built dashboards displaying your Zendesk Support data. You can edit and customize these pre-built dashboards by duplicating them (see Duplicating pre-built dashboards). This article will discuss the different types of reports available for each pre-built dashboard.
You can access your pre-built dashboards by clicking the Explore icon () in the Product tray, then select the Zendesk Support dashboard. Each dashboard is located in a different tab. For information on the different chart visualizations shown on each dashboard, see Visualization types reference.
The Overview dashboard contains information on key metrics for your Zendesk Support. If you previously used Insights, you will notice some reporting differences between your Insights Overview dashboard and Explore.
The Overview dashboard uses the Zendesk Support Tickets and Ticket Events datasets. You can filter by date, assignee, brand, channel, group, and organization.
Overview headline metrics
- Created Tickets: The number of created tickets during the reporting period.
- Unsolved Tickets: The number of unsolved tickets. These are tickets that do not have a Closed or Solved status.
- Solved Tickets: The number of solved tickets. These are tickets that have a Solved or Closed status.
- First Reply Time (Median): The median amount of time it took an agent to make the first public comment after a ticket was created. The time is based on calendar hours, unless you have business hours enabled.
- Full Resolution Time (Median): The median amount of time until a ticket is fully resolved. If a ticket is reopened, the time is recalculated until the ticket status returns to Solved.
Tickets created by time reports
There are several reports on the Overview dashboard that show ticket creation volume based on hour, day, week, month, and year for the selected date range. These reports provide a great way to help you understand when to ensure proper staffing to handle the incoming ticket volume.
- % Tickets Created by Hour: This report shows the hour (1-24) where the highest percentage of tickets were created.
- Average Tickets Created by Weekday: This report shows the average number of tickets created for each day of the week.
- Tickets Created by Month/Year: This report shows the total number of tickets created per year broken down by month (Jan - December) or week (1-52). You can hover over a data point on the graph to see how many of the created tickets have been solved.
Tickets by channel, group, form, or brand reports
There are two reports available on the Overview dashboard to help you understand the relationship between your tickets and channels, groups, forms, or brands.
- Tickets Created by Channel: This report shows the total number of your tickets that come from each of your supported channels.
- Tickets by Group/Form/Brand: This report shows the total number of tickets created broken down by the name of the group where the ticket is assigned, the ticket form, and the brand associated with the ticket.
The Efficiency dashboard can help you analyze how efficiently agents are solving tickets, by measuring key contributing factors, such as the number of public comments and resolutions times. While other pre-built dashboards show you trends on the number of tickets you are solving, the Efficiency dashboard shows you how your agents are solving tickets.
Efficiency headline metrics
- One-touch Tickets: The percentage of tickets solved with one public comment or less.
- Reopened Tickets: The percentage of tickets that were reopened; the ticket status changed from Solved to Open, Pending or On-Hold.

- Group Stations (Average): The average number of groups assigned to a ticket.
- Requester Wait Time (Median): The median time a ticket spent in a New, Open, or On-hold status.
The following efficiency reports are available:
Tickets by agent
This report shows the percentage of agent replies required to solve tickets for the selected date range. For example, the report might show 50% of the tickets were solved by 1 agent reply, 40% were solved by 1 agent reply, and 10% were solved by more than 2 replies. Use this report to see how much agent effort is required to solve tickets.
Tickets by group stations
This report shows the percentage of groups required to solve tickets for the selected date range. For example, the report might show 75% of the tickets required only 1 group to solve the ticket, 20% of the tickets required 2 groups to solve the ticket, and 5% of the tickets required more than 2 groups.
Efficiency time-based reports
The following reports can be broken down to show results by month, week, or date. You can hover over a data point to see the exact results for the associated time period.
- First Reply Time (Median): This report shows the median and average number of minutes before agents respond to tickets.
