The Root Causes feature allows you to look further into details by prompting your reviewers to select custom reasons explaining why they gave a specific feedback.

For example, if a reviewer gave a negative rating for Tone in this case, they would be prompted to add the reason(s) why in the form of a predefined choice or by adding a freeform comment.

You can then use the Dashboard to analyze the reasons and pinpoint specific problems on a team and agent level. This makes it easier for you to organize coaching and solve specific issues.

You can do this by scrolling down to the Ratings by Category table and clicking on the Category you wish to analyze or selecting the Categories tab in the Dashboard.


How to set up Root Causes?

You can set up Root Causes by going to Users and Workspaces > Scorecards and editing the Category you wish to add Root Causes for.

You can choose:

  • if you want to have predefined options,

  • if you want your reviewers to be able to select multiple Root Causes,

  • if you want reviewers to be prompted for all ratings, only for negative ratings or for negative and neutral ratings.

You can also have optional "other" root causes where the reviewer can type in their reasoning.
