Support Dependent picklist values as same in Salesforce on Cockpit
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.
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.
Can people share how have they combined risk reporting between Gainsight and Salesforce?
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.
Email Templates' names drop-down list in "Send Email"
Even after organizing and structuring all email templates, it is still rather difficult for the team to find the right email templates, while sending an email from CTA “Send Email”, as the full name of the template is not seen in the drop-down list. The max character count can be 29, and we’ve tried to keep it as short as possible, but in some cases simply not possible.Would be absolutely fantastic if the drop-down bar would be wide enough, so the whole template name is visible. Or at least wider as it is for now. 🖤
CREATE A CTA TO TRIGGER PLAYBOOK
My team has a Playbook named Kickoff Call. We need it to be triggered by the following items. Trigger when account is not assigned to CSM, then becomes assigned to a CSM Trigger when account is reassigned from one CSM to another DO NOT duplicate an existing open CTA of the same type. Reassign the existing CTA if it exists
CTA from cockpit in c360 does not allow to change month
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
When creating a success plan, no easy way to navigate back to customer profile
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
Customize CTA notifications
We create CTAs based on risk alerts and then the CTAs may be assigned to either CSM or Acct Owners. If they are assigned to CSM, everything works fine as they have Gainsight access. However, the issue is when CTAs are assigned to Acct Owners, we have problem with CTA notifications because Acct Owners do not use Gainsight and only work on Salesforce and they work on their associated tasks from Salesforce and not Gainsight. The problem is automated CTA notifications have links to Gainsight CTAs/tasks and those users who do not use Gainsight find it difficult to deal with such notifications.How can we customize the notifications to send only to certain users (CSMs) and exclude others (Acct Owners)? Is there a way to customize these notifications?Thanks,
Can Success Plans & Objective CTAs support locally uploaded images?
We have been attempting to paste images into CTAs to fit various use cases in our organization, but frequently users cannot paste screenshots & run into this error: I save the screenshot to my desktop and then when I cut and paste the jpeg into the field, I receive an icon of a beach scene with a lens. When we contacted Gainsight Support regarding this, we were informed:Currently, we are not supporting the images uploaded locally but we can have the images from the public domain (google., wikipedia..). I have verified the behaviour in my local as well. To achieve the use case we can upload the required image files to some domain and then access the image from there to use it in success plan.Below are the reasons due to which we are not supporting the ability to add images in success plan:1. Success plan objective/use case is to store and present the details of plan of action which will be mostly text.2. The ability to add images will impact the performance of success plan loading a
Edit the CTA view when selecting link from report
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?
Reason Codes auto-default to Global reason when manually creating CTA
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?
How can we operationalise customer lifecycle in Gainsight
(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
CTA Owner Mismatched with Task Owner
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
Why use CTA Types in Gainsight? Here is an example
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]
CSM can't see email open data in a playbook task
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?
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? :)
Best practices for sharing a master list of active CTAs?
We’re frequently getting questions from our team to analyze ‘all the CTAs’ that are currently active. In the past we created a ‘master CTA database’ in a spreadsheet to share out with stakeholders, but obviously that is difficult to keep up with manual updates. How is everyone keeping CS stakeholders informed of your ongoing/active CTAs, not just updates for new things you’re implementing? It seems like there isn’t one central source in Gainsight to easily share the things they want to see: CTA Name, Trigger Criteria (customer segment), Playbook Tasks, etc
Can we show "Associated Persons" directly in CTA instead of showing them after clicking on "More Details"
Hello Team,Currently we do not show “Associated Persons” in CTA layout directly.If we want to view them, we need to click on “More details”.Can we show it directly on the layout.Thanks & Regards,Srikanth
Unable to reorder CTA groups. Any ideas on how to achieve that without removing everything?
( ^ This is for the SFDC version) Unable to rearange groups in Administration / Cockpit / CTA / Detail view layout configuration / CTA tab without removing and readding everything.Usecase: someone requested we add another group at the beginning of the CTA type and we have 13 groups already present.There is no way to shift the newly added one to the top. (attached , you can see the UI buttons available in the right side which point to delete + fold/collapse group)
Conditionally add tasks to playbooks
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.
