How to load to the Person Object
I could be missing how to do this in the documentation, but struggling to see how to load to the person object through a rule. My end goal is to actually load to the company person object, but from everything I can see, the Person ID is required to do that. I don't see a rule action or ability through S3 to load to the person object. Documentation seems to make it sound possible but I'm not seeing the ability in the load to company person object. Any help would be appreciated! [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20180227-107454-uaqltr-Screen_Shot_2018-02-26_at_6-14-54_PM_inline.png[/img]
Assign Gainsight License in Sandbox
Hi. we have a new person that will handle Gainsight, and I assigned her a license in Production. We don't want her touching the data in Prod until she learns the ropes, so I had to create her in our full sandbox because we're in between refreshes. When I tried to assign a Gainsight license in the Full sandbox, I didn't see the Manage Licenses link under the Installed Packages section like I do in Production. Is there a way to assign licenses in the full sandbox, or do I have to wait for a refresh? Thanks, Joe

Trying to load Company Person, getting a blank dialog box (see below)
Trying to follow the document listed on the FAQ [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Rules_Engine/Admin_Guides/Load_to_Person_Model_using_Rules_Engine_Action_Types#Setup_Load_to_Company_Person_Action_Type]https://support.gainsight.com/Rules_Engine/Admin_Guides/Load_to_Person_Model_using_Rules_Engine_Action_Types#Setup_Load_to_Company_Person_Action_Type[/url] I am trying to create a rule to select a few contacts from SFDC and load it into Gainsight. The setup rule works just fine but when I go to the Setup Action click on + Action and select "Load to Company Person" I get a beautiful dialog box something I have never seen before [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/ScreenShot20190412at12-52-33PM-c3d5175e-73b8-4536-b1d2-d4585592522e-333016736.png[/img] It is completely blank but has an OK button on it.

date format when uploading data to an MDA object
I've finally understood exactly how to upload data using the S3 connector to and MDA object. however, I was quite surprised when I was troubleshooting and searching the gainsight support site that formats starting with day (dd/MM/yyyy or dd-MM-yyyy) are not at all supported. this becomes incredibly annoying for me and our CSMs since we're based in Europe and most of our data in Salesforce uses this formatting instead of the classic American MM/dd/yyyy. It would be very nice and much more manageable if we could have this format supported. Thank you
Gainsight Analyzer: Hours of execution widget not working properly, zero value
When reviewing our rule execution & Audit section in Gainsight Analyzer, as an Admin I am quickly trying to provide an update on our processing time but the "meter" indicator is Zero while the report metrics are present. Is this something possibly introduced with the recent release? We can still use the value from the chart, but wanted to let you know that (for at least my instance) this is no longer working as expected. I was hoping to post a screen shot of the "zero" green, yellow, red indicator but it seems I am not allowed to upload picture or they are being rejected.
I need help to intergrate the Fresh Desk ticket data into Gainsight. The intergration idea was to use a SFDC and get the information into Gainsight that way. However using the SFDC app only works when you are using SFDC in classic and we have all moved to lighting. Has anyone integrated FreshDesk data with a SFDC lightining instance
Has anyone configured a freshdesk integration?
Without a native connector per Zendesk, I'm looking for any help with a light or zero dev solution to getting FD tickets into Gainsight daily, either via API or drop to the S3 connector. It appears that the FD/SDFC integration (which we do have live) is pretty limited, and only shows an iframe type ticket view, so I assume can't be accessed by rules engine. We also just tested flatly.io as a3rd party approach, but it only allows a single datapoint to be scheduled/sent. Any advice or help appreciated!
New API Documentation Available!
I'm happy to share our new [url=https://support.gainsight.com/API_and_Developer_Docs]API documentation[/url] on Gainsight Go! Gainsight offers REST APIs to integrate your applications or services with the Gainsight platform. Gainsight API documentation is intended to address developers who need to understand the Gainsight APIs before integrating applications and services with the Gainsight platform. Using these APIs, you can insert or update data into the Gainsight applications from external systems. Data which is upserted into Gainsight applications is stored in various objects in Gainsight’s Matrix Data Platform (MDA). Using these REST APIs, you can manipulate objects (Read/Write/Upsert/Delete) and insert or update upto 50 records in a single API call. If you want to perform bulk loading (inserting more than 50 records), you can use [url=https://support.gainsight.com/API_and_Developer_Docs/API_Integration/Gainsight_Bulk_API]Gainsight Bulk API[/url]. Gainsight offers documentat
Map users - email to SFDC Account ID - via Person object
Hi, Now we have Person Object part of every C360 and R360, our CSMs add new users and assign them to various accounts where relationships exist. So one user (email address) can be part of multiple C360s as well as R360s. We have several other objects where we store users data using their email address e.g. product usage stats and webinars. Historically, we would always load SFDC Account ID as part of every object – this field would come prepopulated via our data lake and the mapping would have been done either before in enters the data lake or in the data lake so it would be already available in the dataset when it comes to Gainsight. But now, we manage users mapping via Person object, I’d like to switch the “email -> SFDC Account ID” mapping to reflect the one in Company Person/Relationship Person. In other words, if a contact is associated with 5 different C360s and they attend a webinar, I would like this information to appear in all 5 C360s (multiplied), without
Are Sandboxes important when working with Gainsight?
Hello, I am reaching out to see if there is any value on getting set up in Sandbox before Production. Just want to see if others utilized the Sandbox after the launch to Production. If you do have Sandbox, have you found it valuable to assist in your Gainsight process? Thank you for your help in advance.
Idea. Change the Quick Filter (Search) Section in the S3 Connector to Default to Contains, rather than Equals.
In other areas when you're doing a quick search using the area in the red box (in the image), it defaults to a 'Contains' search. But in the S3 it defaults to an 'Equals' search. Is it possible to change this search to a 'Contains' to match the other areas?

Gainsight Analyzer - Rule Dates not sorting chronologically
Gainsight Analyzer appears to be doing similar to [url=https://community.gainsight.com/conversations/s3-execution-history-is-sorting-as-if-it-is-a-number-not-appreciating-time-5bc73e16e4b04588aaf868b8]this[/url] when sorting rule execution dates: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/ScreenShot20190121at11-59-32AM-abda48af-4584-40cf-a435-2b7e99190e77-1883082175.png[/img] Is sorting chronologically something we have to ask for as an enhancement every time or can we just assume moving forward that any date/time sorting should be chronological when the feature is developed?
issues tracking users with Sponsor Tracking feature
I am currently having issues with the Sponsor Tracking feature. It works only intermittently so for some users within certain accounts I am unable to select a profile and track the sponsor. This is the procedure I follow: Go into the account > sponsor tracking tab > no sponsor is tracked, therefore I click on + Sponsor > choose the user > click on track (under action column) > a pop up window opens and it keeps on loading > after a while it says "Unable to process request at this moment, please try later." > if I input the linkedin URL I am unable to click on search. I have tried for multiple days in a row and every day the same error message appears. What can I do to make sure the sponsor is tracked?

Can you link zendesk account to Gainsight via the widget before tickets come in?
Creating this on behalf of a customer - he wanted to see if it was possible to preemptively create zendesk accounts prior to receiving tickets and link that new account to Zendesk --> here is his ask: I was wondering if there was a way to integrate a Zendesk organization to Gainsight before a ticket comes in? See below screenshot of where I'd hope it'd be possible, which is the Zendesk organization page. Please note that the integration is already installed between our Zendesk and Gainsight instances, and we are able to manually link organizations between the two applications after a ticket has been submitted by that client organization in Zendesk. My sole question here is can the link be made before a ticket is submitted, at the Zendesk organization level. I checked the app configuration for Gainsight on the Zendesk side and see nothing that would pertain to this. The answer may very well be "We don't support that", but I want to confirm. The reason I'm asking is because if a tic
Gainsight Analyzer is reporting The filter "Apply to Gainsight customer" is missing - but it is chec
When scanning a rule from Gainsight Analyzer, the results show that "The filter "Apply to Gainsight customer" is missing." But examining the Rule Query shows that the box for "Apply to Gainsight customers only" is checked.
Zendesk Mappings - Support More Options
Because of SFDC concerns/cycles adding Zendesk mappings to the Account object is not always possible (depending on the customer), so the only option is to periodically upload mappings via a .csv into Connectors. This is not a scalable process & requires manual effort to maintain, as well as they could easily miss a new customer since Zendesk/GS/SFDC aren't directly integrated. There is a way to send the Salesforce Account Id through the Zendesk connector but since we have to have the Account Id in Mappings first or tickets are mapped as UNKNOWN with account Id 9999999999, this is not a workable solution. Can we look at other ways to support mapping Zendesk Org Ids/Names in the future? Thanks!
Object Not Found reported by Gainsight Analyzer - Is there any easy to find where this object is loc
I scanned a rule using Gainsight Analyzer. One the alerts was that an object was not found. I can see in the results that it is a MDA type object and the object name is something machine readable but gives me little to go on to understand where this object is located and why it might be missing. Is there an easy way to query by object name within Data Management?
Handling nulls in MDA calculated fields
I have a use case to treat nulls as zero on a calculated field in MDA. It's simply A-B=C and in 25% of cases B is null. In those cases I would like to end up with C=A but there doesn't seem to be an option to treat null as zero in MDA calculated fields. Is this feature on a roadmap by any chance? It's also worth mentioning in this data set the nulls in B need to stay null for downstream logic.
