Reporting Overview

Introduction

The LiveChat Platform lets you extract data from all the Reports available in LiveChat. You can use this data to create your own reports, build custom dashboards or set up custom email reporting.

Use cases

There are a number of ways to leverage the Reports API:

  • export data to Excel (see blogpost) or 3rd-party analytics and BI tools,
  • create dashboards for teams (like this one),
  • set up alerting and notifications for specific metrics,
  • schedule custom email reporting.

API versioning

The Reports API goes through several stages in its lifecycle.

stableIt has a closed feature set and is publicly available. It receives all bug fixes. Lasts for ~6-7 months.
legacyWe're gradually dropping support for this version. It receives only critical and security bug fixes. Lasts for ~1-1.5 year. Responses contain the Legacy header that specifies when this stage ends (in the YYYY-MM-DD format).
