The purpose of this article is to provide information to Outreach users leveraging reporting. We are in the process of rebuilding our reporting to better support team performance management. This will streamline and improve the way metrics are accessed in order to find insights and drive improved outcomes.
- Outreach users
Summary of Changes
We will be consolidating a portion of our existing reports, Activities, and More Reports, to be nested under Team Performance. The current Team Performance report will expand to include more metrics around core user activity in Outreach such as outbound calls, emails delivered, current overdue tasks, etc. As part of this effort, three additional dropdowns will be added to the Team performance report in order to support more in-depth metrics for the call, email, and task-related outcomes.
A few areas of reporting will be consolidated into these new areas. This will include:
We have focused on three main areas as part of this effort:
- Consistency - Team performance metrics all flow up through the same suite of reporting to ensure metrics are uniform and aligned to best practices. The look and feel of reporting remain the same as you navigate through the data.
- Availability - Enhanced performance with an improved set of infrastructure that scales more effectively for larger data sets.
- Accuracy - Improved metric documentation to ensure users understand how each measurement system functions and drives decision-making.
In addition to improvements in these three spaces, we have made a number of updates based on customer feedback and questions.

Task State Filtering

Adding in LinkedIn task category for more granular tracking around LinkedIn activities
The Team Performance, Sequence Performance and Sales Execution reports refresh every 24 hours at approximately 8-10 AM Pacific Standard Time. This allows for improved scalability and performance because we pre-calculate output on these reports.
The Daily Activity report includes data from the current 24 hour period starting at 12:00am for the user viewing the report. New activity may take up to 15 minutes to be reflected in this report.
Calls, Outbox, and Tasks counts are still available with real-time data via their corresponding list view pages. We are actively working to continue to grow here and solve for performance, scalability, and faster refresh rates on all metrics.
In the task, email and call pages saved views can be created for quick access to intraday counts through the navigation in the sidebar menu.
- Set up filters around targeted users or teams.
- Update states based on targeted populations to monitor (Calls completed, emails delivered, tasks completed).
- Update task completion, call completion, or email delivery dates to target today.
- Save the view for quick access.

Migration Report Mapping
Metrics in this report moved to Team Performance Overview. Users may need to scroll to the right in order to access “Other Tasks” and “Overdue Tasks” metrics.
|Activity > Team: Today
Most metrics moved to the Daily Activity report.
“Active Accounts Owned” and “Active Prospects Owned” were not migrated to the new reporting suite. We will introduce account-level rollups in early 2024.
|Activity > Team: Outbound Calls
Most metrics moved to Team Performance: Calls.
“Attempted” is equivalent to “Total Calls” in the new report.
“Connected” was deprecated because it included answered calls AND calls that went to voicemail based on Twilio data. New metrics rely on call dispositions instead.
Note: Filter by “Call Direction” to see inbound vs. outbound calls.
Note: Filter by “Email Origin” to see one-off, bulk and sequence email metrics.
Note: LinkedIn tasks are rolled up into a single metric.
