What is the difference between an interaction and an activity?

An interaction occurs when a customer is on the phone or chatting. An interaction can contain sever activities, e.g. when a call is transferred to another agent.

An activity occurs when an agent is working on the interaction – this can be before the interaction is created, during it or after it has ended.

Here is a simple example of an incoming call where the agent fills in a form after the call ends.

Legend: Interaction | Activity | Talk Time

  • tA: the incoming interaction (call) enters the queue.

  • tB: the agent accepts the interaction, the agent activity and the processing are created at the same time.

  • tC: the interaction is ended by the agent or customer, the interaction and processing end.

  • tD: the activity is completed by the agent after they fill in and save the form.
