Hi Team,If we add the controlling and dependent picklist fields of salesforce to the cockpit linked object data then in the dependent picklist values are not working as expected as same in salesforce.Below is the scenario: The customer reported an issue that the Risk CTA Type has a linked object to Opportunity(SFDC) from NXT and they are displaying several fields on the Opportunity tab. Two of those fields are picklists and one of them (#1 At Risk Reason) is dynamic based on the other (#1 At Risk Category) but on the Opportunity tab, it is not displaying any values. We are not supporting the dependent picklist as of now for SFDC linked objects. Thank you.

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.
CSMs use RISK CTAs to manage and track risks. The Salesforce reporting should be able to see which of these accounts are at risk. I have seen multiple ways of making this work but would love to crowd source on ideas.
The use case is we want to trigger a CTA for customers with expiring, unused professional services.Depending on how close that customer is to having their professional services expire, different playbooks would apply, as urgency increases. We envision this being a 30 day cadence (so for example, starting 120 days before the expiration of services, a CTA would trigger, then again at 90/60/30 if they still have unused services).I'm getting lost in the variety of checkboxes on the "Create CTA" action.How do I ensure a CSM isn't getting too many stacked CTAs if they don't close out the previous one? How do I have the CTA provide a different playbook & name as the services approach expiry? I’ve thought of having Create CTA actions at 120/90/60/30 and then a separate rule for Close CTA actions at 91/61/31 to close the CTA as Closed Success if the services were fulfilled, or Closed Lost if the services were still unfulfilled. Thoughts?
In Google Chrome, when trying to create a CTA out of the cockpit on any C360 page, altering the date beyond the current month is impossible. This seems to be a rendering / UX issue, enabling/disabling scrolling does not have any effect to this. Currently, we use the workaround to zoom out to 90%, which shows the monthly navigation. Currently on Chrome Version 96.0.4664.45 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Need an option to add all the contacts of company in the "Associate Persons" while creating a CTA Action in the rule
Currently we are able able to add only one Company Person from Rule. But manually we can add multiple Company persons in the CTA associate person.Could it be possible to add a few set of company persons based on their role? RegardsRaju Panyam
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?
Feedback from out team:When creating a success plan, there is no way of navigating back to the customer profile, which is very time consuming as we have to navigate back to the customer profile in case further information is needed. Would be amazing if there was an option to allow us to jump back and forth more easily
When clicking the CTA link from a report it brings you to a Cockpit view for that CTA, but you are unable to edit the fields that are available in that view. I would like the user to be able to see fields without having to click into the detail view.I have checked in the Administration > Call to Action section to modify and there is no “+” button on the view to add fields. Is this a default view that is unable to be changed? If it can be modified, where is that option?
I have been cleaning up our CTA Reason Codes. I have moved everything FROM Global to the appropriate CTA Type categories, leaving only "Other" as the sole Global reason code. For some CTA Types, I have designated a specific default reason code. For others, I'm leaving it blank - intentionally because I want to force the CSM to select the appropriate type. Suddenly, though, CTA Types that do NOT have a "Default" Reason Code are defaulting to "Other" (the Global code) when manually creating a CTA. This didn't seem to happen before. Am I missing something?
For customers who are new(er) to Gainsight's CTA configuration options, you'll want to refer to this new [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/CTAS_Tasks_and_Playbooks/Admin_Configuration/Intro_to_Cockpit_and_CTA_Configuration?mt-learningpath=configurecockpit]How to Configure Cockpit and CTAs path[/url] on Gainsight Go. It contains a series of articles that will walk you through the process of configuring Cockpit's list view, CTA and task detail views, CTA types, linked objects, etc. We've created a handful of documentation paths, which you can find by searching for "path", and/or by keeping an eye out for these docs path tabs throughout our product documentation: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/24132-byd9ye_inline.png[/img] We welcome your feedback!
Are you a new Gainsight user or have teammates who are new to Gainsight? Two new in-app walkthrough guides are available for Cockpit and the 360 > Timeline, to help new end users become familiar with the functionality in each of these areas. Users can access the guides at any time by clicking the info 'i' icon next to the following options: [list] [*]Cockpit > List Views [*]Timeline > +Activity button[/list]We hope you find these new walkthroughs helpful!

The CTA detail view is highly customizable. Admins can add Account/Customer Info fields to the detail view to display and collect information from their CSMs directly in Cockpit, without having to navigate out to the SFDC Account page. And using linked objects, you can link other objects (such as Case, SFDC Opportunity, Milestones, etc.) to the CTA, and create miniature forms. These forms can help save your CSM's time!

(as we a relatively new to Gainsight and just started this year) I'd like to build our customer lifecycle in Gainsight with the different touchpoints and milestones from sales, product build, handoff to customer support to value creation, renewals and churn. similar like the lifecycle chart in this article [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Business_Processes/Operationalize_Customer_Lifecycle/Challenge_A7_We_don't_have_a_way_to_operationalize_or_track_our_customers'_lifecycle]https://support.gainsight.com/Business_Processes/Operationalize_Customer_Lifecycle/Challenge_A7_We_d...[/url] it would be really useful to show customers who recently onboarded and received training so that we can track the effectiveness of training vs usage. Similarly, it would be super-helpful for our training consultant to view which customers are moving through the lifestyle and will be soon in need of training so that they can plan accordingly. Some transitions between stages would be manual w
Hi All - So far this has only happened once that I know of, but I want to understand why so I can hopefully prevent it from happening in the future.Setup is as follows:Rules Engine triggers CTA, which triggers a playbook and its tasks. In the RE rule, I’ve set the CTA owner to be the company CSM (Company ID>CSM>CSM GSID). In the playbook, I’ve set the owner of all tasks to be Company>CSM.Problem context is as follows:Yesterday, a CTA was triggered, kicked off the playbook, and correctly assigned the playbook to the CSM. However, all of the tasks within the playbook were assigned to the Default Owner as designated in the rule.Anyone have ideas on why this might have happened?Thank you!Chae
Hi Community! We are very interested in learning more about the unique ways you’re using Gainsight in your organzations. Some of you may have talked with me in Fall 2015 regarding the Success for Administrators program, and I’m looking to talk with some of you in an Admin role to learn about the features you’re using, how you’ve leveraged CTAs and Playbooks, how you’re implemented Scorecards, and more. Our Marketing team would then like to leverage these as Admin Case Studies so this is a great chance for you to showcase the work you’ve done! Please note that we're primarily looking for interest at this point and will reach out with respect to interviews. If you’re interested, please contact [url=mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]email@example.com[/url].
I manage the Product Risk process here at Gainsight for our Product Management team. I set up and use a special CTA Type called Product Risk to do it. Watch the video to learn how and why CTA Types help in this process. [url=https://vimeo.com/262566188]https://vimeo.com/262566188[/url]
I have a CSM that can't consistently see the email open data in the playbook tasks. Sometimes the data loads, but usually nothing happens until he exits the task then opens it again. I don't believe this is a permissions issue. He has already cleared his cache and cookies. And I can't replicate anything. Has anyone else run into this issue? What can I do to solve this problem?
In Thursday's Gainsight release, we're making important changes to the [b]CTA and Task Due Date and Owner[/b] functionality, which will be visible to users immediately after the release. Please share this [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/CTAS_Tasks_and_Playbooks/User_Guides/09_Manage_CTA_and_Task_Due_Dates_and_Owners]support article[/url] with your CSMs to help them understand the new options. For Playbook owners, we recommend that when you create new Playbooks, or update existing Playbook tasks using the new due date options, [b]test[/b] the implications of the new configurations. For example, create a test CTA and apply your new or updated Playbook, in order to see how the task dependencies will impact the CSM’s workflow, and then communicate with your CSM team about how the new/updated Playbook works.
Closing CTAs - allowing a space for final summary/resolution for CTAs when closed success/risk/no action
I know there is a Comments section for each CTA, but is there a best practice for where to insert "resolution" notes for when we close a CTA (closed success or risk or no action). The reason is for easy roll up/reporting to the executive level. One way I can think of right now is to encourage CSMs to add into the Comment section the "resolution" notes at the top level of that box... but are there any thoughts to create a separate notes section for this? For example, a CTA for M&A; comments section will have background notes/summary of risk; unable to save account, CTA closed risk; maybe note box pops up and CSM then inputs resolution notes. Ops can then extract report on those separate fields for exec briefing and/or at risk meetings. Thoughts? :)
My CSM team would like to have a playbook task be added conditionally (triggered) if a specific action does not happen within x number of days.The specific use case is: if a call is not scheduled within a week (task not closed), then add another task to that same playbook (w/ email assist) to reach out to the customer for a follow up.Thank you for your consideration.
