When adding a milestone, the drop-down year field only goes back to 2015. In order to add a date prior to 2015, we must select 'January' from the month field, '2015' from the year field and then press the arrow to the left of the month in order to get the previous year. The drop-down year column does not immediately update accordingly. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20161209-15323-1ce6q8y-GS-milestone_calendar_inline.png[/img] When I exit the milestone creation and go back in, I can see the last year that I navigated to via the arrow. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20161209-14181-1wiyov6-GS-calendar-update_inline.png[/img] However, the cached years do not stay accessible for the customer when exiting and returning to the C360 screen nor are the years available for any other customer. So in essence, in essence, we'll need to finagle the year list each time we add a milestone. While
I think this just changed with the recent update, but in my Zendesk ticket object in C360 the ticket numbers are no longer URL's. Was this done on purpose? It was very helpful to be able to click on a ticket number that automatically opens the ticket in Zendesk so we could we could update the ticket. Can we get this functionality back? Taking the URL away seems like a step in the wrong direction as far as convenience goes.

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.
Hi,This is Nitin from SurveySparrow and we’re looking to build a native integration with Gainsight.Can I get access to a sandbox from where I can explore the Customer Success product? Just wanted to know a few things about integrating our app with Gainsight.
Use "OR" logic instead of "AND" when selecting key fields to identify unique records in connectors 1.0
Hi Team, One of our customer is looking to use Use "OR" instead of "AND" when selecting key fields to identify unique records in connector 1.0 jobs. Current Behaviour: When setting up an Ingest Job, we have two Unique Identifiers from two different systems. Currently it is erroring out when one or the other is missing. Expectation: Create the Gainsight record with either Unique ID’s. Please see below for which key fields we have selected to identify unique records. Here’s the SS : https://share.getcloudapp.com/NQuZGGWb Please let us know your thoughts on this requirement. Best, Hardik
Attempting to upload data into a String field that contains (<5TB) but it’s getting truncated after the ( Is that because it sees the < as a special character? I tried escaping with a backslash but that didn’t work either. Should I be able to use < in a field?
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!

Can someone please help me with the Testing documentation for Rules, Connector jobs and other features of Gainsight please?
Hello Team, I am looking for a guidance to develop the Configuration testing guide for creating new fields in Gainsight or using them in a rule to bring data from Salesforce, or pushing data back to Salesforce.
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
How do you, or can you, add to the below list of options when making an object in MDA? I am looking to add some data to the Email Logs object and to Customer Info, but the mappings are not robust. If you are unable to add to that list, I can just populate with a rule, right?

Would be great to have Created By and Created Date fields added to the tables in Data Management for custom fields. I ran into a situation today where Migration created a field that already existed on the table, but I could not tell which one was the newly created one.
Is it possible to integrate Periscope with Gainsight? Our organization integrates Periscope with SFDC so that we can join tables between SalesForce and our internal database. It would be nice to have the same access to the Gainsight MDA so that we can also join/aggregate on items that are native to gainsight, such as activity or journey orchestrator/survey information.
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]
I tried to use the new Data Management Beta today - added a few custom fields to a custom object. When I saved it - the schema does not show the new fields I added in the beta. When I switched to the current Data Management UI - the fields I created under beta are showing here. Is there a trick to having the field list refresh in the beta?
Hello - There are a few customers that we need to create a relationship for in Gainsight that cannot be created with our existing rule. I thought I could create a relationship record manually by adding it to the relationship MDA in Data Operation but that did not work. Is there a way I can create these relationships without running it through a rule?
Hi Admin Community, Are you trying to bring Usage data from multiple platforms into Gainsight? Please have a look at below basic points before setting up the configuration. Is the data aggregated or raw data?: If the usage data is in high volumes, it is always recommended to do aggregations in the rule itself and bring the aggregate data into Gainsight instead of pulling the whole data dump. Aggregations on usage data with respect to user, Account and date identifiers is standard way to dump usage data. Does each platform have a common identifier?(like SFDC account id): This is the most important and first step. What common identifiers do they have on each platform and Gainsight?After pulling any usage data to Gainsight, it needs to have a lookup on Company object inorder for the CSM to build insights on top of them and bring those reports to C360 section. So it’s necessary that usage data brought from any platform should have common identifier with Company object in Gainsight. At wha
The Matrix Data Architecture Export API returns CSV containing unquoted string values, even when the field delimiter is present in the string values. This is a problem because it makes reliably parsing the returned CSV very difficult, and perhaps impossible in some cases. This just isn't good behavior from the perspective of an Export API user/consumer.
First off, it was great to see more data designer like functionality being put into this connector. Hopefully one day we will just have one tool to pull data in and transform it. While we really like the new transform capability in this connector, it would be great to have more of the data designer like capability. This includes doing group by, previews, and numeric expression derived fields. Are there plans to continue to enhance this connector with more of this capability?
I have a customer use case where for a set of CSMS, customer want to restrict few CTA types showing up in the dropdown while creating the CTA. Applying data permission on DA picklist is restricting those CTA types at object level but still appearing in the list on CTA creation page. Also, can we restrict one set of CSMs tagging another set of CSMs(CSMs of one region tagging CSMs from other region) in timeline?Is there a way to achieve these? If not is there anything on roadmap which enables this?
Admins can now fetch metadata of Gainsight Objects and Fields using Rest APIs. Customers who have the development resources can use these APIs to build tighter and more customized integrations between Gainsight and their systems/applications. For more information on how to use these APIs, refer to the Data Management APIs article.Business Use Case: When a customer wants to integrate their application with Gainsight. The customer would want to understand how the data is stored in Gainsight, that is the structure of metadata in a Gainsight Object. Such customers can use these APIs to fetch the metadata and get an understanding of it, without logging into the Gainsight application.
