Review Your Company Self-Service Usage

The Self-Service and Case Deflection dashboard is divided into the two following sections: Community Visits and Case Deflection.

The purpose of the Administration Console Self-Service and Case Deflection dashboard is to provide a quick overview of various visit metrics, such as the number of visits in which at least a search and a click were performed on your community search page and the number of visits on your case creation page. The Search Event Click-Through (%) average during visits on your community search page and the number of case deflections versus the number of case creations help you identify quickly self-service trends and anomalies to determine when further analysis is required.
