Finding Your Peers and Content 

 

We want to help you connect with your peers and quickly find the resources that are most relevant for you. This community serves several different audiences, so read on for tips based on your particular role or interests. 

 

Product Managers / Designers / PX customers

If you’re using Gainsight PX, and you work in product design and management, you’ll want to check out and Subscribe to PX Discussions. This is where we share thought leadership content for product management professionals, as well as you’ll find product Q&A for the Gainsight PX application. 

You also might be interested in subscribing to PX Ideas to share your product feedback, and to upvote the PX feature requests that are most important to you. 

 

Gainsight CS Admins / CS Ops

For folks working as Gainsight CS Admins and in CS Ops roles, we strongly recommend that you subscribe to Product News & Updates. Gainsight uses this category to share important product release information, including resources to help you stay up to date with the product.

Currently, there are many discussion categories related to the various feature areas in the CS application (eg. Surveys, JO Email, Reporting). In these forums, you’ll find peers and Gainsight employees discussing specific use cases and how-to information related to the CS application.

To post your CS product feedback, or to up vote other’s feature requests, visit the CS Ideas category. 

 

New CS Admins & Helpful Resources

If you’re a relatively new Admin, or if you want to learn about a newer application (eg. Data Designer), we recommend taking the Admin training courses on education.gainsight.com. These courses will provide you with foundational knowledge critical to implementing and providing ongoing support for your organization’s instance of Gainsight CS. 

In the community, we recommend checking out content with the Admin tutorials tag for helpful videos and how-to articles on common processes and use cases that you may want to set up in your org. And of course, our official product documentation offers detailed instructions on how to use every Gainsight feature. 

Our amazing Solutions Architect team also runs weekly Admin Office Hours where you can ask your product questions and get personalized technical support. 

 

CS Program Managers

If you oversee a customer success team(s), we recommend that you subscribe to CS Best Practices. Here you’ll find peer conversations on topics like customer segmentation, the ideal CSM to customer ratio, how to measure customer health, how to transition accounts from sales to post-sales teams, and more. We encourage you to start your own conversation, and share what’s worked well for your organization!

You may also want to introduce yourself in the Networking category. If you’re looking to hire and want to share CS opportunities in your organization, this is the place to do it!

 

How to Engage on Community

Here are more suggestions for how to participate in the community.

 

Your vote matters 

Gainsight product managers frequently review your product feedback on the community, and they pay particular attention to ideas with the most votes. For example, in 2019, we implemented nearly 100 ideas in the CS product sourced from this community!

So, don't be shy about sharing your product feedback, as well as using the vote button on Idea posts.

@lila_meyer is there any way we can see a notifications (replies to a subscribed post or an authored post, likes on comments, etc) panel within the Community? Relying on the email notifications is quite annoying and tedious, IMO!

Unfortunately not. I asked about that before as well. Kind of a pain to always have to check email for your notifications when you’re logged into the community already.

Yep, I’ve shared the feature enhancement suggestion with our community vendor.
