Please make Gainsight flexible to use any account within Salesforce related to a Contact
Gainsight looks at the standard account field for Co-pilot , CTA's etc. Every Salesforce instance implementation is different and with our current account structure in Salesforce(2 account views) it is challenging to use Co-Pilot , contacts within CTA. This applies to all the functionality which uses contact and account related to the contact.
Ability to set unique status to individual tasks associated to a Playbook
We have a client onboarding CTA; associated playbook has four tasks. I want to be able to report on which of the four tasks during the onboarding process were successful/completed vs. those that were not however, I can't figure out how to 'close successful' only the tasks that were completed without being required to close all tasks when the CTA itself is closed out. Is anyone doing something similar that has a good solution? Thanks! JAM
How can we utilize success plans to trigger a playbook?
We are currently going through the process of creating success plans for new CS owned customers. Our CSM's would like for some of the objectives in success plans to trigger a playbook that feeds them appropriate tasks. Is the only way to do this through a cockpit CTA? That seems redundant that we'd have to go in two separate areas to solve a long term objective that could be aided by a playbook.
Duplicate Opportunities, trying to get the date with the max value
I've created a rule where i want to find the max value in an opportunity and use the date on that opportunity to update the Customer object Renewal date. However, on some accounts there are two opportunities that fit my filter criteria. I'm putting in the Showing Area - the Max value for the Opportunity and the Close Date. However, when i pull in the close date, it always uses the most recent close date when i go to assign the customer info objects vs. using the close date on the opportunity with the Max value. How can i get the Close date from the opportunity that has the max value if there is more than 1 opportunity that pulls in for my criteria?
Email Assist: How quickly can you expect to see open rate information for emails sent from Cockpit?
Email Assist: Two questions: (1) How quickly can you expect to see open rate info (like "email opens", "email first opened on" and "email last opened on" for emails sent from Cockpit? (i.e. generally less than an hour?) (2) Are these times displayed in the time zone of the SF org or some other time zone?

Send Gsnaps Using CoPilot, or Email Assist Tasks
Although Gsnap and CoPilot are not fully integrated at this time, we do have a fairly simple workaround that enables you to send Gsnaps via CoPilot, or with Email Assist Tasks. This is helpful in situations where you want to: [list] [*]Send Gsnaps to multiple customers at the same time [*]Send Gsnaps based on customer data: usage, change of stage etc. e.g., You can send a welcome Gsnap when a customer stage changes to closed-won. [*]Send a Gsnap along with customer data such as usage reports. [*]Send Gsnap from Email Assist tasks in Cockpit.[/list]See this [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/CoPilot_and_Automated_Email/Admin_Configuration/08_SEND_GSNAPS_USING_COPILOT_OR_EMAIL_ASSIST_TASKS]article[/url] for complete instructions.
Configuring CTAs - Importing Contact Details
We are customizing our CTA's so the CSMs do not have to search for information to inform their outreach. We are having issues with connecting information: 1) How to pre-populate Contacts field with primary contact? [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20161209-15479-1pgvyot-Screen_Shot_2016-12-09_at_3-02-25_PM_inline.png[/img] 2) How to populate contact information? We linked the Contact object to pull in a contact's information on the account. As opposed to displaying the applicable fields, it's asking to either create new or link to an existing account. I tried to link it to an existing account, but the account does not show up in the search.

We are running into the same issue from #2 where the acc
Editting Playbook Tasks
When I make an edit to the content of a task in a playbook via the playbook, that task gets automatically moved to the bottom of the list of tasks in that playbook. That's fine if there are only one or two tasks because it's easy to notice and put it back in the right order, but if there are more than a few tasks, it can easily get missed, and then, the playbook tasks appear out of order moving forward. The task shouldn't move on edit unless you physically move it.
CS Knowledge Drop - Leveraging CoPilot and Cockpit
Thank you to Joanne and Jessica from Peak 10 for hosting a webinar on leveraging CoPilot and Cockpit today! If you missed it, you can watch the recording [url=https://vimeo.com/183696967]here[/url]. [i]We'd love to hear from you - how have you leveraged CoPilot and Cockpit? What lessons have your learned? Does your whole team use Copilot or just one admin? What use cases generate the highest click-through rates? Any formatting tricks?
Approval Workflow - Onboarding to CSM - Best Practice?
Currently we have an approval workflow within Salesforce used for transferring opportunities from the Onboarding Specialist to the CSM. 30 days after a customer is launched, the Onboarding Specialist is prompted to update notes and submit the opportunity for approval. The manager receives the approval request, and can accept or reject. If accepted, the CSM handoff is approved (updates a checkbox for CSM approved = true, adds timestamp, updates lifecycle stage from 'adoption' to 'retention). Are there best practices for creating an approval workflow in Gainsight? Right now, as long as the entry criteria is met, the Onboarding Specilist just clicks the "Submit for Approval" button on the opportunity. Is it possible to somehow incorperate this button into the CS350 page or CTA? I would love to hear how any other gainsight customer handle similar scenarios and workflows!
Cockpit: No CTAs show in Cockpit when filtering for Status includes Closed Success, etc
When applying Cockpit Filters Status includes "Closed Success, Closed Risk, Closed Not Applicable" no CTAs show in cockpit. Tried doing the opposite Status includes "New, Work In Progress" but that does not work either.

Doc Error: Send an Email Task from Cockpit doc references incorrect screen text
I was attempting to test the new "Send an Email from Cockpit " feature, and the documentation ([url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/CTAS_Tasks_and_Playbooks/User_Guides/01_Send_Email_Tasks_from_Cockpit_(aka%2C_Email_Assist)]https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/CTAS_Tasks_and_Playbooks/User_Guides/01_Send_Ema...[/url]) threw me a little. It says that the task should say "Preview and Send Email" in the Task Details screen, but in my environment it says "Approve and Send Email." I wasn't sure if that meant when I click it it would give me the ability to edit first and then send. Turns out, it does...however it is a bit confusing when trying to follow the docs and it doesn't match.

Reassigning CTA/Tasks - the question to assign to all tasks not showing or for only a second now?
Seems like with the new UI, when I go to reassign a CTA that has tasks it is not asking me to reassign all tasks - or if the confirmation box does show (didn't for me but did for a colleague) it shows so briefly that you can miss it. Can it either be that the default is YES if you don't click anything (if the box shows up for such a brief time) or that you HAVE to click Yes or No before it disappears.
Transitioning Tasks from Salesforce to CTAs in Gainsight
My team uses Salesforce tasks to organize their days - it's how we live and breathe, and keep our sanity! When we close out a task, we always use the "Save & New Task" button in Salesforce, because we should ALWAYS have an Open Task for each of our Accounts. Since I want my team living in Gainsight going forward, they are working to transition from their Tasks by creating Manual CTAs on their accounts. I'm starting to get questions on when they close a CTA, is there an easy way to "Close CTA & Create New CTA" all in an efficient swoop? I just want to cut down on a lot of clicks, and want to know what other users have done for this.
Can't set Rule to assign CTA to Opportunity Owner
For our smaller customers, the CSM responsibilities are owned by a team of folks, until it comes time for the renewal, at which point an individual CSM is assigned the renewal Opportunity. We set them as the Opportunity Owner, and I would like to assign the "Renewal" CTA to them. I have a rule that pulls in Opportunity Owner ID: [url=https://cl.ly/3t1w3Y3t162p]https://cl.ly/3t1w3Y3t162p[/url] However, the Owner ID is not available as an option when trying to assign the CTA: [url=https://cl.ly/2v1j3h2t452g]https://cl.ly/2v1j3h2t452g[/url]
