We have a use case where it would be helpful to see in Gainsight all of the upcoming customer calls/onsites, which we typically have stored in individual CSM calendars. Is there a way to do this presently in the system? If not, I know there's an ongoing thread about CTAs and GCal integrations that I think is similar (and not redundant) to this request.
Hi - an idea that was shared with my by one of my customers was related to creating CTAs automatically through Outlook/Google calendar integration. The use case is as follows: [list] [*]CSM creates a calendar meeting request to their customer to schedule a meeting. While in the calendaring app, they have an option to click a button that will sync that meeting to a CTA in Gainsight. [*]The CTA will be created using relevant content from the meeting request (some details will have to be worked out as to how the correct customer is selected and how other mandatory fields are populated) [*]CTA is now ready to be actioned upon once the meeting is held and the notes are added to the CTA or chatter feed for that customer. [/list]This would allow for reduction of an extra manual step and will especially assist in cases where customers do not have standing recurring meetings, but instead meet in an ad-hoc basis.
I have a request from a customer to be able to use (for example) the language variant when using email assist. In testing this it appears that it always defaults to the first in the list (English) when sending out. They'd like the email sent out to a contact outside the US to receive the email in the local language similar to the way that Co-pilot works. At this time it looks like they'd need to create a template for each language.
Follow Up: The ability to change the "FROM" email address when using the email assist featurePlanned

Our CS team is LOVING the new Gainsight Assist Chrome Extension, but we have 1 major request that would take it to the next level. Currently, all emails Logged to Timeline show up as an ‘Email’ activity type. In most cases this may make sense, but we have a few situations where we’d like to be able to select the activity type the email should be logged to.One specific example is our team’s focus on Strategic Engagements with their customers. Currently, if they have a strategic conversation they are sending a follow up/recap email via Gainsight Assist that is being logged as an email. To ‘get credit’ and accurately report on our strategic engagements, they are then copy/pasting the recap into a new Strategic Engagement timeline activity and logging that via Global Timeline or the C360. It would save a lot of time if while sending their recap email they could select a drop down to log the recap as a strategic engagement instead of a generic email.
It may be beneficial for end users/admins to have the option to adjust Task Type mapping when syncing Activities from Gainsight to SFDC. Currently, it appears it is set up in such a way that the Task Type to any Activities synced from Gainsight to SFDC will automatically pull the Default Task Type and, depending on which activities are synced, may cause confusion for end users. For example, a user logs a call from the Activities tab with the "Sync to Salesforce Activity" checked off on the Activity config, this call will appear with the default Task Type which may not be set to "Call" and could throw off some end users. Having the ability to map Task Type in the Activities config may assist in resolving this. Thanks!
I’ve been running into issues where we have users in my environment that have duplicate Usernames but different SFDC User IDs, however when I compare them to their Salesforce counterparts the usernames are different. I have to assume this is due to some upstream issue - changes made in SF that are out of my control and/or occurred before I came here - but this causes issues for me because the Salesforce Connector user job won’t allow me to use the SFDC UD as an upsert key, so I end up with partial failures related to the duplicate usernames (my upsert key). When I run into these types of situations my only recourse is contact Gainsight support to delete the user for me. I need more control over my user table with the ability to delete users.
The Rules engine should be updated or modified to support writing data to Salesforce's Multi-select picklists. Gainsight's own native field, the Tag field on Customer Info, cannot be written to correctly with the Rules Engine, because the engine overwrites existing values instead of appending new values.
I'm running a report against an MDA object. Two key columns are the account name, and then the date for the specific data point. I can sort by Account... or date... but not by "Account and then date within account." So if I want to see week 1-4 in order for an account, i'm having to sort by date and then filter to a specific account. In Excel this would be easy, right?
Some of our scorecard measures (the ones that folks populate manually) have a validity period set, and if the measure is past it's validity period, an alarm clock icon shows on the measure. This icon only shows on the C360 view of the scorecard, but isn't available in a Dashboard view or in a Gainsight Report, as far as I can tell. It would be great to be able to show which measures are "stale" so that our users could quickly and easily find which measures they need to update, and create some reports around this. I think all you'll need is a formula field on the Scorecard Fact object that compares the Score Last Modified Date field to the Validity Period field on the Scorecard Metric object.
We would like the ability to filter by fiscal date within the Rules Engine Setup Rule. We have some rules that power MDA and reporting that report only on current FQ. Each new quarter, we have to manually adjust the dates to the current quarter, so this will become unscalable once our number of rules grow.

Ranking in Rules EnginePlanned
It would be great if we could rank accounts in the Rules Engine, similar to ranking in Report Builder. For example, ranking accounts so that only X number receives a certain CTA or action. A specific use case would be ranking our top 50 customers by spend to automatically generate CTAs and other field triggers as part of our top 50 customer engagement program.
Is there a way to use the Cockpit Calendar integration (gsuite or outlook) to pull calendar events from an external calendar into Timeline?Planned
I was speaking with a customer: Anthony from Degreed, and he had a rather interesting use case to ask me about. In the past few releases, Gainsight introduced Cockpit/Calendar integration for Gsuite and Outlook. It is a great feature that writes CTA info onto an external calendar.. but currently this functions standard operation is a one way push from GS to the external Calendar. There does not appear to be bidirectional capability in this features current function. Anthony wanted to see if there was a way to use this cockpit calendar integration to pull meeting details from his external calendar and automatically create timeline activities. His main asks were: if there is any way to sync calendar events INTO Gainsight today. if you know of any possible partner solutions or workaround if there is a plan/roadmap item to introduce this functionalityI did float this ask internally and did get a few responses. This ask did seem to resonate with some of my other customer facing counterpar
99% of the changes we make to the Company object are done through scheduled rules. Our CS team generally does not make manual updates (by design.) This sort of defeats the purpose of real-time rules for us, since they would only be triggered when our SCHEDULED rules change something in the company object.I would love to be able to trigger real-time rules based on changes/updates to objects that are more likely to be updated in real-time. Example objects would be - survey objects, timeline activities, CTAs, etc.
I’d like the ability to export the data returned in queries created in Data Designer. Currently you must create a dataspace from the design, create a report in report builder to then export. Use case: I’m typically validating data when first creating a new data space and would like to export and review the data in excel.
I have a customer in Europe who is trying to use DD-MM-YYYY as their date format. We only support MM-DD-YYYY format in the MDA right now, but with more and more European customers coming on board, it would be nice to support DD-MM-YYYY. Any plans on that? Also, any suggested approaches for getting around this?
We would like the ability to tie timeline activities created through BCC/Email to Timeline to CTAs that have already been created. Before the email assist/BCC functionality, we would create timeline activities within a CTA (and still do so), but we are unable to tie BCC emails to a particular CTA now to keep our communications tied together. If there was some way to include the title of the CTA in the subject of the email, or something like that, to tie the email to the CTA, that would help out our team greatly.
When adding new fields to Timeline Activities, it looks like the only options for "Field Type" are Text, Date, Number and Checkbox. Is a "Picklist" type field anywhere in future plans? I'm trying to match the Timeline Call Activity fields to my existing Salesforce Call Log fields, so that the calls will sync over to Salesforce, but we have several required Picklist fields in Salesforce, and I don't want to end up with a lot of messy data from open text fields.
We are using Relationships to differentiate between products and in our case also the CS team working with the customer. Therefore, our team should always log activities on the Relationship Timeline instead of the Company Timeline. Sometimes, that goes wrong and currently, the only solution is to recreate the Activity on the Relationship Timeline and delete the one on the Company Timeline. It would be great if the Activities could be moved, for example by updating the Related to field of the Activity.
