Article Summary

Dialpad's 'Call Volumes by Day' report provides a detailed view into your contact center's call volume patterns. With an easy-to-understand heatmap format, you can easily identify anomalous days where call volumes spiked, spot unusual trends, and clearly see seasonality patterns.  

Let's get into the details of this report. 

Who Can Use This Feature
