Hide the upcoming section from cockpit
I have been speaking with a customer who would like the option to hide the "Upcoming" section in cockpit. CSMs work through their CTAs and would like to see nothing in their view at the end of the day. I know it is possible to collapse the section but do we ever see us being able to hide that section all together?
Success Plan CTA's don't show up underneath the cockpit tab in the C360.
As the title says, CTA's success plan CTA's unfortunately don't show up underneath the cockpit tab in the C360. Here's a [url=https://cl.ly/3bb1edde2b58/Screen%252520Recording%2525202018-09-17%252520at%25252001.18%252520PM.mov]short video[/url]. It might be cool to have them appear there as well.
Drag and drop task order on a CTA
I was speaking with a customer today and the question about the order of tasks came up. When the tasks are configured in Playbook order we were looking for a way to select what order the new task will apply. Do we ever see a drag and drop feature being applied to play book order?
What is the quickest way to push out a CTA to all CSM for all accounts?
Is the only way to push a CTA out to all CSMs by creating a rule? Is there a quicker way to achieve this? I may find it cumbersome since I'm new to administering Gainsight, but I want to make sure I'm not missing something.
Service Now Ticket CTA and Reporting
Hi there, I hope your summer is going well. I am trying to figure out the best way on how to do the following: We import a data file to Gainsight every Monday with a list of open service now tickets. The account name for each ticket appears either in the “account” field or the “short description field”. a. We would need a CTA that would trigger with an email notification to certain recipients to notify when the number of tickets on the weekly service now file for one specific account (account X) is greater than zero. OR b. We would need an automated report to run every week to display the open tickets for a specific account and send an automated email to certain recipients as an alert. I'm happy to talk offline on how I can proceed with this. Thank you in advance, Jasmine
Create one CTA per CSM
Is there a way to have a CTA linked to just the CSM and not to an account? Essentially I am looking to send each CSM one CTA that instructs them to perform an action across all of their accounts. The use case for this is so that my CSMs that have 60+ accounts won't have their Cockpit overloaded BUT still receive the reminder. Thanks!
We are making some changes to our statuses, and as I was trying to inactivate some of the current ones, I noticed that there's a limitation that it can't be in use on a CTA. I think this makes sense for any statuses that don't close the CTA, but for ones that do, I'm not sure that should be a limitation. Ideally, I wouldn't have to move the CTAs in the closed status that I want to deactivate because I want to still be able to report on that status historically. With a process change, it's not longer a valid option for the CSM moving forward, but it was valid prior to the process change, and I'd like the data to reflect that.
In my Gainsight Cockpit, can I collapse/expand all CTAs?
In my cockpit view I see a huge list of CTAs which are grouped on Clients names. +Client A [list] [*]CTA 1 [*]CTA 2 [*]CTA 3[/list]+Client B [list] [*]CTA 1 [*]CTA 2 [*]CTA 3[/list]Can I quickly expand/collapse these CTA groups so that I can focus on the the client I am working on? Thanks.
Report on CTA Origin
I feel like someone posted about this already but I can't seem to find it. I'm troubleshooting some CTAs and I can't seem to pinpoint HOW they were created. I know the rules that are SUPPOSED to create the CTAs I'm looking at.... but the account that has the assigned CTAs don't match the Rule criteria at all..... So I'm stuck because our CSMs have these CTAs that WEREN'T supposed to be triggered and I can't seem to troubleshoot as to how they were created. Is there some way we can create a report to see HOW and WHEN CTAs were created - essentially something that shows the origin of the CTA: created via rule (with rule name), created from Survey settings CTA, etc. There are so many CTAs and it would nice to quickly see where they originated from.
Cockpit filters issue
I noticed an issue with how the Cockpit filters are filtering on due date and overdue tasks. For example, if I add a filter for "Due Date = Today", that will pull CTAs into the view whether or not the CTA is due today or if a sub-task is due today. This is great way for CSMs to organize their workflow for what is due today and not. However, if they try to filter on "Overdue" or if they set the "Due Date <= Today", then the filter only applies to the due date of the CTA. I find this behavior to be strange and inconsistent. It's especially frustrating one of my CSMs who likes to organize her CTA list by everything that is due today + anything overdue. However, if one of the tasks of a CTA is overdue but not the CTA itself, that will not be filtered into her list. Just wondering why that is occurring or if someone has a workaround that would be much appreicated!
Question (Possible Idea). When Creating a CTA via the Rules Engine, allow for @CreatedDate in Name of CTA.
We have [i]several CTAs that are automatically created via the Rules Engine. I'd like the ability to add the Created Date of the CTA in the Name of it. Explanation below. If there is also feedback on another way to handle this, I'm all ears! :)[b] Scenario[/b]: [b] [/b]On a bi-weekly bases we're using the Rules Engine to create CTAs for various accounts. However, we noticed that if we create CTA A on July 1st - and CTA A is not completed by July 14th, when the new rule runs on the 15th - CTA B will not be created because CTA is still active. We want both CTA A and CTA B to appear on the account. Only to be able to report on the number of CTA A's that are not being completed. [Management at this time, is OK with the CTAs stacking. This is a new process for us, so we want to make sure that everyone is doing what they should be doing - and assessing if we're seeing a large number fall behind.] [b] Questions: [/b]1. Is it because the CTAs using the sa
Use Rules Engine to create CTAs containing info from Dataset result
I ́m using Rules Engine to create CTAs from a CSV file containing hundreds records. In this case i filtered to bring all records with usage above 90. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20180704-92685-1dwsuzc-usage_inline.jpg[/img] It bring 3 items [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20180704-118264-1uea2pw-dataset_reslujlt_inline.jpg[/img] Now i want to create a CTA showing to the CSM these records and asking him to do some tasks (i ́ve already created the Playbook for this kind of CTA). How can i show in CTA the Account, Relationship, opportunity and SKU of all theses records? Or maybe create a CTA for each record? I do not want to just warn CSM that there are records with usage above 90, I also want to show the records
Report on Timeline Activites Created from CTAs?
Is it possible to report on Timeline Activities that are tied to a specific CTA? For example, for an Implementation CTA, it would be cool if we could see all the Timeline Activities that are created from that CTA and then do stuff like sum duration of time.
Is there a way to push more fields to the SFDC Tasks object from Cockpit Tasks?
It seems that the fields pushing over from Cockpit tasks to the tasks object in SFDC is limited to certain fields like "subject". I would like to push more fields over like "CTA Reason". Is this possible or are we limited to whatever is pushing by default?
Success Plan Objectives - Timeline tasks not showing up in Cockpit
I'm working on a Success Plan - the thought is in the Objectives CSMs will enter the over-arching goal, and post the specific steps to get there in the 'timeline' section of each objective. That way a record is kept in timeline (under a specific activity type), and they to-do's will also show up in the CSM's cockpit. However, while the timeline entries are created, the tasks don't show up in Cockpit. Has anyone else experienced this?
Workflow recommendations for Customer Escalations
What workflow(s) does your company have in place for when a client escalates to the CSM's Manager? We are re-imagining the process in Gainsight, and would love to hear how other companies leveredge the tools in Gainsight to answer these user stories. Thanks for any help.
Pre-fill To and CC fields with Email Assist / Email Template / CTA Email Task
Is there a way to pre-populate both Contacts and Users in the To and CC fields of an email when launched from a CTA's Email Task / using Email Assist? [b]Use Case: [/b] We serve K-12 Education, both schools and districts, and we are typically targeting our communications to people filling particular roles such as Principal, Teacher, IT Contact, Buyer, and so on. It would be a time-saver for our CSMs, when managing their CTAs, if when they click "Validate Email" that the email template appears with Contacts and Users pre-populated based on certain criteria that our admin would build into the template itself or something. [b]For example: [/b] The To field would pre-populate with any Contact on the Account or its Parent Account (...because we have Schools that live under Districts in the Account Hierarchy and we might need both levels...) where the Position field value includes "Principal", "Administrator" or "Buyer." And the CC field would pre
Do not generate CTA in new Rule Action if all Identifiers are identical
I have a Rule that creates CTAs, but I'm updating the Bionic Query to, well, make it more complex. As a results, I need to change the Action that creates CTAs from being based on one Bionic Task to a different Bionic Task. I can't change the source Task for an existing Action, so I'm replicating all the configuration into a new Action on the same Rule. The new Action is creating CTAs with an identical Title, Type, Reason, and Priority. (And the "Use in identifiers?" checkbox for the Title is checked, for both the new and old Actions.) However, when I test the Rule, the Excel output tells me: [list] [*]For the [b]old Action[/b], all the CTA Created records are marked as [b]"Existing CTA"[/b]: [url=https://cl.ly/171X360n2541]https://cl.ly/171X360n2541[/url] [*]For the [b]new, identically-configured Action[/b], all the CTA Created records are marked as [b]"New CTA"[/b]: [url=https://cl.ly/2l250l2k423n]https://cl.ly/2l250l2k423n[/url][/list][b]So, I wanted to confirm if this i
