Assume that your Customer Support gets a Case that comes in late Friday evening. It doesn’t get worked on until Monday morning. While your Support Team spends just 10 minutes working on the Case, the Case Age calculation tells you that it took almost 3 days to close! Throws your Case handling metrics completely out of whack, doesn’t it? So how do you find the actual time spent on the Case?
With the PK4 TimeTracker version 1.52, we’ve introduced a new Lightning Component to automatically track time. You can select the Objects that you want to automatically track time for. Your Salesforce Administrator can set up the Lightning Component for any/all objects that you want automatic time tracking for. In this specific case, your administrator sets up and activates the Track Time component for Cases.
The Track Time Lightning Component
Now, every time an agent opens the Case View page for a specific Case, the timer automatically tracks time spent viewing the Case. If the agent closes the view page or navigates away to a different page, we automatically update a Time Detail log. Let’s say your agent navigates to a specific Case multiple times, then we create a Time Detail log each time. Assume different agents access the same Case, then each agents’ time is tracked against that Case. And your agents do not need to click on a timer or do anything special. All she does is View the Case that she’s working on. Finally, a simple Salesforce report gives you a summary of all the time that has been spent by one or more agents on that Case.
Your Case metrics are no longer skewed by night times, weekends, or holidays. You get a clear insight into actual time spent by agents on
Cases. You no longer need to guess why some Cases take longer than others. The data and statistics are clear and compelling.
Your staffing decisions, reports, stats to leadership, and service bills to customers all have solid data to back them up. Respond to questions about time spent with confidence.
Native Salesforce component
The Track Time component integrates seamlessly into your Salesforce Lightning environment. All-time tracking data is safely stored in Salesforce. That makes integration with billing and payroll systems simple and effective. And with Salesforce, it’s easy to create any additional reports you need.
More uses of the Track Time component
Assume that you set up the Track Time component on your Salesforce Accounts object. Law firms can easily use the Track Time component to track time that lawyers and paralegals spend on specific customer accounts. Now you can manage billable time with minimal effort.
Set up the component on Opportunities or Leads. You get a complete insight into how much time your Salespeople are spending on each Opportunity.
Set up the component on Projects. Now you have a view of the time your operations team spends on Projects.
The possibilities are endless with automatic time tracking.
