On the home page, graders can track what tickets they need to grade as well as gain a better understanding of where their assignments are coming from.
This article will help walk through how to use the home page efficiently to find your grading assignments.
Where do I find the QA Assignments page?
The QA Assignment page can be found in the top bar, as outlined above. If you are having trouble finding this page, your MaestroQA Admin may not have enabled this feature. If you are interested in using this feature, let your MaestroQA Admin know!
Welcome to the Home page!
Upon first opening the QA Assignments page, you can toggle the time range to adjust what assignments you wish to focus on.
The time-frames you can adjust for are:
Last 7 days: Looks at previous 7 days starting from present day
Last 30 days: Looks at previous 30 days starting from present day
This week: Tickets assigned since Monday to present day
Last week: Tickets assigned since Monday to Sunday
This month: Tickets assigned from Start of Month to present day
Last Month: Observes time range of previous month
Custom: Choose the static time frame to look at
Note: MaestroQA determines ticket assignment dates based on when the tickets were initially assigned to the Grader. To view grading progress, include the original date the tickets were assigned.
As you modify your time frame, you may see the boxes populate with values.
To walk through what these boxes show:
Tickets Assigned: Number of tickets assigned for grading
Tickets to Grade: Remaining tickets that need to be graded
Graded: Percentage value of tickets graded
Overdue: Number of overdue tickets
Due Today: Number of tickets due on present day
Viewing Your Assignments
After configuring the filters, the "My Assignments" area will populate with the proper assignments.
Note: A Ticket Review is a folder that can contain multiple Tickets. These are typically assigned to a Grader via Automations.
This section will group together the individually assigned tickets into Ticket Reviews. Ticket Reviews are associated with an agent, and only grading assigned tickets for the proper agent will contribute towards your QA Score.
To walk through the different columns in the outer table:
Assignment Name: Name of the Ticket Review
Type: What type of assignment you are grading (more info at end of article)
Grade: This will bring the user to the Ticket Review to grade the ticket
Due: When the assignment is due
Assigned On: When the assignment was created
Tickets: Number of tickets in Ticket Review
Complete: Tickets graded within Ticket Review
Incomplete: Number of ungraded tickets in Ticket Review
Actions: Users can choose to view, reassign, or close the Ticket Review
Users can then proceed to expand individual Ticket Reviews in order to get further details. In this inner table, users will see another set of columns.
To walk through the columns for the inner table:
Agent Being Graded: Agent Associated with Ticket Review
Grade: Link to grade the ticket
Status: Status of ticket, this has 3 states: Not Started, Draft, Graded
Score: QA Score given to the ticket for the specified agent
TicketID: Unique identifier of the ticket
Actions: Shows a dropdown that lets you either view the ticket or mark the ticket as closed (this does not contribute towards your QA score)
What is the Type column?
The Type column refers to a method of categorizing different assignments in MaestroQA. This can help with organizing workflows as well as easily filtering down to find the proper assignments.
There are 4 types of assignments:
Agent QA: Standard QA workflow where you are grading agent tickets
Grader QA: Involves a benchmark grader/QA Lead grading random graded tickets to check if graders are aligned on QA standards
Graded Tickets: Graded tickets to review
Team Calibration: Assigned tickets to calibrate on
What if you can't find your assignments?
Check whether the checkboxes "Only show incomplete assignments" is checked off. Having this option marked will hide complete assignments.
Also, check if the "Hide overdue assignments" are checked off. This options hide past-due assignments.
How can I validate if tickets were assigned to me?
When tickets are assigned, they should automatically be displayed under the "My Assignments" table. In addition, you can double-check more details about the assignment if you click Tickets > Ticket Reviews on the top nav bar.
How can I export my Assignments?
By clicking the "download" icon on the "My Assignments" tab, you can download a CSV with the updated statuses of your assignments. Note that the date range specified on top will determine the data on your exported file.
