User/Team Report

  • REST Method: GET
  • URLs: https://api.helpscout.net/v1/reports/user.json

Please note that if a team ID is used instead of an user ID, the report calculates summary data for all team members

The report provides a snapshot of a user or team activity over a specified time range. You may optionally specify two time ranges to see how activity changed between the two ranges.

URL Parameters

A variety of filters are available as query parameters. Including any of these will result in only conversations that match the filters being included in the report.
