## Calculation

When an interaction changes to the **Completed** state, Ivanti Voice performs the following operations.

**For the contact center:**

Ivanti Voice sums up the time the interaction spent in the **Queued** and **Delivery Pending** states, and compares the sum with the current value of this statistic for the entire contact center. If the sum is less than the current value, Ivanti Voice changes the value to the sum; if not, the value stays the same.

If the sum is less than the current value, Ivanti Voice changes the value to the sum; if not, the value stays the same.
