Engage Voice | Managing Historical reports

Last updated on October 01, 2021

Table of contents

Historical reports contain the following folders:
  • Standard: Contains default reports created by the system. Read more in Historical reports reference.
  • Shared: Contains reports shared with you or your team by team members.
  • Private: Contains reports you created.
  • Favorites: Contains reports you’ve marked as favorites. Favorite reports may come from Standard, Shared, or Private folders. 

Helpful hint!

Some parts of the UI will refer to reports as ‘insights.’ Reports are ‘insights’ as well. Still, most of the UI will only refer to reports as ‘reports’ and not ‘insights.’ Insight is a deprecated terminology.
These folders are listed in the left panel. Clicking on a folder will direct you to that folder’s page, where reports are listed in a table and organized in report groups. At the top of the page is a search bar where you can search for reports. In the upper right, you’ll find the New report or the New group button, depending on which folder you’re in.
