Connecting CTA's to objectives
We are trying to keep our objectives higher level and longer term- as designed. However, many of the CTAs that result are directly related to the objectives. Is there a way to tie them somehow? It would be helpful for presenting to the customer the activities that were completed over the past quarter for each objective as well as the result.
Is it possible to assign CTAs in bulk to Account within a live Cockpit/Playbook? (Not manually)
Question: How do we assign a manual CTA to multiple accounts at the same time within a live Cockpit/Plabook?Use case: Showcasing the Email Assist feature within a playbook, we want to make this feature known to the CS Managed teams and offer a CTA each CSM can "opt in to" for each one of their accounts. This feature would be ideal for informational emails that the CSM can choose to send to accounts of their choice. We just need to create a CTA and Playbook that will live within cockpit. And then we could assign the CTA to any CSM account we want (or they could do it themselves). The only thing we don't know at this point is if we can assign the CTA to multiple accounts at one time without using a play. Thanks!
Ability to extend the character limit on rich text field especially on Success Plan object
On behalf of customer, on success plan object, there are several rich text fields that are editable by end users. Ability to increase the Max Character Length of some of Success Plan fields (which were set at 200 characters).
Control which tasks get synced to SFDC
Hey, We recently enabled the GS to SFDC task sync, which works well, but we’d actually like to limit tye type of tasks that sync into SFDC, to only have renewal-related tasks synced. Is that something that can be done? Because I don’t see an option to apply a filter to the sync but perhaps I’m missing something. Thanks!
Gainsight tool for Zendesk Setting Owner As System Administrator
Hi Team,Before upgrading to Gainsight NXT environment, the Gainsight tool in Zendesk which allows Zendesk users to create Gainsight CTAs had left the owner field as Blank but now since Customer(Phorest) has upgraded to NXT, the tool is setting the CTA Owner as System Administrator. User do not want this to happen and the owner field should be left blank. Is there a way to achieve this or this is expected. Refer to the below screenshot.https://share.getcloudapp.com/wbu8P2qG
Is there a way for a non-Gainsight user to make a CTA for a Gainsight user?
Hey folks, We are a CS team which has converted from being part of the Tech Support group. We're about 2 years in now, but still have some lingering processes. Chief among them is still using Cases in Salesforce. Our Tech Support team uses these heavily. We even created a separate Case type for Customer Success items. If a member of the Tech Support team discovered a CS item during a support interaction, they would create a CS Case for us to look into it. This has worked fine, but I want to get the CS team focusing exclusively Cockpit and CTAs. The challenge is that no one on the Tech Support team has a Gainsight license. So, is there any good way for a non-Gainsight user to make a CTA and have it be assigned to the Account Owner (who would be a Gainsight user)? I can think of some hacky ways this could work, but would l love to hear if anyone else has crossed this bridge.
Ideas for Logging Irrelevant CTAs
As we're implementing Gainsight, we're trying to track which CTAs are misfiring or are limitedly relevant for certain customer types. We created a new CTA stage called "Closed-Irrelevant" to measure how many and which ones. I'm curious to know how others have tracked this if at all?
Need ability to edit the CTA configs under Cockpit Configuration
We have a Call to Action status "Closed Not Applicable" that was set up during our implementation and for some reason has a Category of OPEN. (see attached image). This is causing CTAs that are closed with this status to still show as open CTAs. I do not see a way to edit the Call to Action Statuses so that I can change the Category field in Cockpit Configuration. I opened up a support ticket and was told this is similar to the issue I raised here: [url=https://community.gainsight.com/gainsight/topics/usage-configuration-need-ability-to-remove-specific-measures-from-the-usage-picklist-on-c360]https://community.gainsight.com/gainsight/topics/usage-configuration-need-ability-to-remove-specific...[/url] I should have the abiilty to edit these configurations without having to go through workbench to do so.
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.
Comments on the objectives in Success plans
When you create an Objective in a Success Plan, there is an optional place for comments. After the objective is created, the comments seem to disappear. This may be a silly question, but where does the comment field go and can i make it present when they look back at the objective that was just created?
Process to "Unsync" select tasks
So, we have on auto-sync (when it's fixed). There are times where our CSMs use a CTA status of Not Valid because they believe the CTA generated in error. We'd like to be able to have a process that unsyncs the tasks for that CTA from SF without the CSM or someone having to manually do it. I thought it might be possible to do from the Rules Engine, but I'm not having any luck. Best I can put together is that since I'm trying to interact with the task in GS, there's not a way I can tell it to make the Auto-Sync false in the Set up Actions. Any suggestions?
