Is there a way to refresh the cockpit after completing a few CTAs, without using 'right click > reload'?
What's best practice for refreshing your cockpit after you've completed several CTAs? Should we be using 'right click > reload' or is there a better workflow? Or is best practice to work a CTA from the c360 > cockpit page?
[img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20180404-61983-1w7d0ri-image_inline.png[/img] In short, our users would like the ability to sort the Group By so that [b]New [/b]would show before [b]Closed[/b]. We do have a work around for them, which is changing the Group By to All and then adding the Column of Status Name and sorting by that. But it displays it all together, rather than separated. Just curious if there is a way to do it and I just need to add an additional field or something. Thank you for your time and feedback!
I ask, because I see there is already a Document section in the software. This comes from reading several post regarding the ability to attach a document to a Playbook or Success Plan. It was recommend to use a Cloud Host so that the user could click on the static URL provided by the Cloud Host for that particular document. But before we do that, wanted to know if Document section would be expanded to include the ability to request a static URL? Similar to how DropBox, Google Drive, and OneDrive provide one when sharing a document or folder with another user. Thank you for your time and feedback!
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]
According to the [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/CTAS_Tasks_and_Playbooks/User_Guides/04_Create_Custom_Views_in_Cockpit#Custom_View_List]Cockpit FAQs[/url], Cockpit view are sticky. From what I understand, once we choose a specific view it will always use that view until it's changed. I've chosen the My CTAs view and even created a custom view but it keeps reverting back to the All CTAs view when I refresh. Is there a special way to make my view "stick"??
Watch this fun DIY video from Karl Rumelhart, Gainsight's Chief Product Officer, where he demystifies join types in bionic rules' merge tasks! In the first few mins., he reviews the four types of joins available, and then he demonstrates an example of how to identify which customers don't have any CTAs using joins in a merge task.

In Gainsight's most recent v5.11 Winter release, we introduced the option to create and close CTAs within Adv. Outreaches. In the 3-min. video below, Abhishek Sivaraman from our product management team explains how to use the new feature.

I've seen this happen with enough customers lately that I figured it would be worth raising here. I've had at least 3 or 4 customers in recent weeks (Frontline, GlobalEnglish and Integrate come to mind) that have had an issue with creating a CTA and then not being able to view it in the cockpit or C360. See below: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20180228-118227-1p74cpb-Screen_Shot_2018-02-28_at_10-31-47_AM_inline.png[/img] The fix each time has been to go to the Call To Action setup in Administration and unlink the Linked Objects on that specific type of CTA (it's usually been risk or activity). After the Linked Object is unconnected, the CTA can be viewed just fine. I believe at some point in the recent past we started automatically linking objects to those CTA types, and it appears be causing the issue documented above. Obviously, this is causing a negative user experience and probably leading to an influx of support tick
With many of our CTA's the comments just continue to add on to the CTA, rather than standing alone. It becomes really confusing. For example, we have a CTA for every NPS score that comes in. When the CTA is created we just need to see who the NPS score was from and their comments, but it just keeps adding anyone from the account that has submitted an NPS and what that score was.

Question. How are you using Gainsight to track multiple departments that touch an account? And then report on them?
When an account comes on board with us, it can be touched by up to several departments - depending on the account. As we start to bring on more internal users to Gainsight, we're wondering how other companies are tracking multiple departments and their use in Gainsight. From both the customer side and the internal side.
I all the tasks and the CTA are assigned to an owner, and I click something as completed, who does it show as having completed it on the backend? The owner of the task/CTA or the person who actually checked it off as completed. As an admin sometimes I end up checking something off on behalf of the owner, but I want to make sure that on the backend it is not showing up as I have completed it.
We have recently enabled linking CTA to Opportunity and this feature is fantastic! The current ask is for this linking to be established between Opportunity tasks and CTAs. Right now the tasks created in the CTA sync with the Account object instead of the Opportunity object in question. Ideally we would like these tasks to sync to the Opportunity in most cases so activity tracking and next steps are clearly linked to the Opportunity they are associated with. This will be especially helpful in cases where Opportunities are handed off so the associated completed tasks and pending tasks are clear to the team member that takes over. The next ask is that if someone creates a task in SFDC on a linked CTA, that task is merged into the CTA as well. This might be a tougher ask but certainly worth mentioning. If one or both of these asks can be incorporated as an option on the CTA that would be great!
I was wondering if there was a way this up in Gainsight (or Salesforce). When a CTA is created with a linked contact and then that CTA syncs to the Salesforce "Call to Action" object, that we could have that linked Contact also populate in the salesforce record? I was trying to edit the layout of the Call to Action object and there was no option for "Contact". I am just curious into why this field wouldn't be included, seems to be relevant that the contact associated with the CTA also sync with the Salesforce log. Especially when the default pushes "CTA Type" and "Reason" which are CTA specific fields. Not sure if there is a workaround on this or if this is just not supported. Thanks!
Hi, I was looking through documentation on adding chatter to CTAs and found this helpful resource ([url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/Data_Management_and_Integrations/Technology_Partner_Integrations/Chatter_Integration_Overview]https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/Data_Management_and_Integrations/Technology_Part...[/url]) but couldn't find anything on enabling chatter for Relationships. All of our customers have relationships associated with them, and we don't use any Customer CTAs. Has anyone configured this successfully? Thanks!
I have noticed that when we make changes to a CSM in Salesforce, that often the owner of those CTA's does not get moved over to the new CSM (at least not quickly). Can someone clarify if this change of owner actually does happen, and if so how long does it take to change because I am often doing it manually.
The support team has confirmed that when you add a date field as a token to the CTA comments via the rules engine, the date format will always be YYYY-DD-MM regardless of how the field is formatted. It would be great if we could designate the date format similar to formatting tokens in CoPilot.
-- Ask from one of the Customer -- 1. In Timeline for an account, I logged a call and filled in the “Notes “field, naturally. I also created a future task, which results in creating a CTA called “Test 1 (Example one)” 2. Here in the cockpit, I can see my CTA and future task. But the “Notes” field is not available to me, in the detail of the CTA. There’s a “Comments” field in the CTA but no “Notes” field is available to be displayed. Is there a way to display the Note field that I filled out while logging an activity in the timeline, when that activity becomes a CTA? Based on gathered inputs I get to know both Activity & CTAs are independent entities, except name nothing will be copied, that's how it was designed. Is there any future plan to add that Notes section of Timeline in CTA Section ?
We have an email assist task that's (obviously) connected to a CTA which is (obviously) assigned to a user. I'm trying to make a connection between the task being completed (or, in some cases, marked as completed) and the email actually being sent, open, clicked, etc. When I look at the Email Logs object through reporting I'm just not sure how to make that connection. Appreciate any direction on this!
Hi guys, I would like to know if there is a way to view information from CTAs and Timeline Activities in one object. I need to report how much time was spent for CTAs of the same reason. I'm using the duration field in Timeline activities for meetings. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20180111-98300-eo1d20-Captura_de_Tela_2018-01-11_a_s_18-16-37_inline.png[/img] For example each CTA's Call has an activity logged in the timeline with the description of the meeting and the time spent. At the end of Success Plan I want to know how much time was spent and which CTA the CSM forgot to record the Duration. I couldn't do it because in the object '[b]Timeline Activity[/b]' there is only the [b]Context ID[/b] field that connects to the CTA and doesn't have a field that lets me filter the CTA's category or CTA's reason. Do you have some way to do it or road-mapped when could I do it? Thanks! Olavo Zapata
Recent contact with your customers is one sign of a healthy partnership with them. If you are using Gainsight’s Timeline feature, your customer managers are hopefully logging the most meaningful events and interactions with their customers as Timeline Activities. If your customer managers have not ‘touched’ a customer recently, and therefore logged a Timeline Activity, you may want to trigger a Call to Action (CTA) and assign it to the CSM, so they can reach out. These [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/CTAS_Tasks_and_Playbooks/Examples_and_Tutorials/Tutorial%3A_Trigger_CTAs_Based_on_Recent_Timeline_Activities]instructions[/url] explain how to trigger a CTA using a bionic rule based on an absence of Timeline Activities for an account in the past 2 weeks. You can adjust that window based on your business needs. The first rule contains two dataset tasks that pull in Account IDs and Timeline data, and then merge the datasets into one based on your field mappings. T
