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?
I just came across an odd situation. I was loading some data into MDA ([url=https://community.gainsight.com/gainsight/topics/a-date-axis-should-show-all-marks-not-just-those-when-data-exists]creating zeros so the time series charts look right[/url]) and selected "first day of last week" as the date value. When I checked the file, the "first day of last week" according to the rules engine was 2/27/16, which is right because my Time Granularity under Usage Configuration is set so the week starts on Saturday. (Why Saturday? No idea... That's just what we did back when! :-) But when I group the data by week in the MDA report I get the week starting on 2/29/16. It's easy enough to fix in this use case, but it could through some people off so I thought it'd be worth highlighting.
Hello! I’ve inherited an instance (SFDC) of Gainsight and am looking to update a drop down on our success story entries. They are entered in C360 as an alternative to success plans. The drop down list is a list of our product offerings that needs to be updated.I’ve gone into Data management / drop downs and am not seeing it there. When I go to one of my reports with that object in there, I can see the path as CTA Group. I’ve gone into CTAs and am not seeing it in there either. I’ve also looked at the configuration of the success story template and am not finding any clues there. Any ideas on how I can reverse engineer to find out where this drop down list is pulled from? TIA!
We are currently receiving some of our data on a weekly basis that is summarized due to the size/amount of data that would be included if we received it on a daily basis. However, there would be a lot of benefit to having it on a daily basis as we would be able to more proactively engage with our customers. Is there a volume restriction on what can be loaded into the MDA?
Gainsight is delighted to announce that the Data Management Horizon Experience is available. Gainsight recommend using the new version as it’s simplified and has better user experience with the following newly added features:Summary Ribbon: Displays the total number of Standard, Custom, and Low Volume objects, as well as the total data size, on the Data Management homepage. Custom Views: To better organize objects, create custom views that group them into functional groups. Seamless object and dropdown creation flow: While creating objects or dropdowns, you can create, add, or delete fields. Review Changes: When you edit fields information of an object, you can review all the changes made before saving the information. Dependencies: View Object or Object’s fields dependency from all the application areas in a single page with minimal mouse clicks.IMPORTANT:You can access both old and new versions of Data Management in your tenant. Any metadata changes to one version will be reflected i
Admins can configure multiple currency codes, including one primary Corporate Currency code in Gainsight. All of the currency codes can be configured with a conversion rate with respect to the Corporate Currency code. This feature allows the currency data to be shown in the original currency code (as ingested into Gainsight) across Gainsight. A standard field, Currency ISO Code is created in all of the Gainsight objects to identify a currency code for all the currency values in every record.Business Use cases:For Multinational companies, CSMs work with customers across different regions. For each region, currency conversions are often in the local currency. Once Multi-Currency enabled, currencies are displayed in the local currency code. Targets for CSMs and sales are often set in their local currencies and hence the aggregated data is best understood if it’s presented in the local currency. Admins can ingest data from any CRM system with the original currency codes.You can also refer
We are beginning to move over our Account Master Join table to the Company (standard) table that can be populated by Gainsight Connect. We were wondering if there are any plans to add a Contact standard table to the list, so that we can align our contact records in Gainsight without using a rule to populate our custom Contact MDA.
Good Morning- This is a related question from another thread I have running ([url=https://community.gainsight.com/gainsight/topics/rules-engine-struggle-issues-writing-to-sfdc]https://community.gainsight.com/gainsight/topics/rules-engine-struggle-issues-writing-to-sfdc[/url]), however the information I'm seeking is different enough that it may warrant a different thread. I've traced the issue in the above link to a missing/inactive/broken data ingest. We're not updating our Opportunity Close Date with the close date from the newest/future open opportunity. Before I dive into adding this ingest, is it possible to see when this specific field was last ingested into Gainsight (i.e. when the Opportunity Close Date cell in the MDA for, example, client "Company X" was last updated)? I want to confirm that this field [b][i][u]is not currently being updated[/u][/b][i][u][/u][u][/u] before adding the ingest. Also, our CCO mentioned that last time the previous a
While CSMs are creating a new record in a Low Volume custom object from C360/R360 > Related List (Report on Low Volume object), other fields having lookup to standard fields from Company or Relationship are populated automatically.Business Use case: If the Industry Type string field in the Low volume object looks up to a standard field in the Company object (other than Name and GSID), while adding a new record in the Low Volume object, the Industry Type field is populated automatically.Notes: Low Volume Object fields having lookup to a custom field in a Company or Relationship fields are not populated automatically. Previously, fields which look up to Name and GSID in the Company object were already auto populated.This enhancement is also applicable while adding a new record from the Data Operations page by Admins. For more information, refer to the Data Operations article. For more information, refer to the Overview of Customer 360 Details article.
One leading indicator of customer churn is the loss of a key customer contact. Gainsight's Sponsor Tracking feature allows you to track contacts listed in SFDC and monitor for anychanges to the contact’s title, location or company.

I am looking for the process to follow and what potential risks are to changing the "Start of the Week" day in Usage Configuration. When I first changed the day, all usage data disappeared from under Adoption pane. If day is changed, is it simply a matter of rerunning load to usage rules to repopulate data under new start of the week labels? Thank you for any advice and recommendations.
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.
In Data Management HA everything requires more clicks. Searching for objects and fields within an object is now behind filters. Some default filters are propped in the banner, but not all. It is so much easier to search for objects and fields in the non HA version with inline search for all data attributes. In addition, data editability and schema editability are not even attributes you can see about a field or object in the new version. In the new version, how do you find what actions are allowed on a particular field? At a glance, how do you know if you can delete a field or which fields are editable in an object? Finding dependencies is really difficult in the new version. In the old version, I can start typing a field name and possible results will appear. In the new version you have to type the exact field name to get results. I wish there is an option to permanently disable the banner. Edit object/fields are displayed even for system objects where nothing can be edited or deleted
We want to set up a stand alone Customer Preference landing page that multiple email senders will use (Marketo and GS). Right now, the way of editing Preference Management is manual via the email validator. Has anyone implemented a similar solution using APIs to update the Opt-Out Emails object to manager customers preferences?
Hey guys.I’m facing a question that probably has a really simple solution that I’m failling to find. In our Company MDA object, we have one field that captures the date of the Last Timeline Activity. It works just fine but now I was asked if I could had in a 2nd field, the link to that activity. I’ve tried using the same rule I have to get the date of the last activity, to also get the Subject, in hopes of it being clickable and opening the activity, however, after loading the values into Company, it seems the Subject does not appear to be clickable.How would you guys go around this? Thanks in advance!
I am trying to find a way to readjust how the usage graph's Y axis is set. It seems to change automatically change the default Y axis values depending on the usage it finds but it typically does not represent the data very well. Is there a way to change this?[img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20170208-48960-1ccwbjq-Screen_Shot_2017-02-08_at_9-12-28_AM_inline.png[/img]
The multi-select feature is poorly designed throughout. In rules engine/query builder, we have to build overly convoluted queries to be able to track NULL values and combine them with (OR condition) includes/excludes. It is also extremely difficult to leverage in any reporting considering the things we can or can’t do with it (can’t group by). It’s impossible to write to it without convoluted formulas to not override what’s already there. Everything about this feature is terrible. It needs an overhaul to start making sense and to stop requiring convoluted 20 steps approaches to get anywhere with it.
I have created a new table to store a file with some daily usage data, and I would like for the file to be uploaded automatically to this table. When Gainsight was implemented in my company a cURL was given to the Product Analytics department to be able upload data automatically into MDA. But now I don't know where the cURL is. Has something changed?

This is relatively minor but thought I'd point out that GS documentation incorrectly states that Data Spaces is located under Administration -> Analytics, when it appears under Administration -> Operations (at least in my org) [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20160923-59509-1i5144x-Screenshot_from_2016-09-23_11_42_24_inline.png[/img] [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/Data_Management_and_Integrations/Data_Spaces/Data_Space_Creation_and_Consumption]https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/Data_Management_and_Integrations/Data_Spaces/Data_Space_Creation_and_Consumption[/url] [url=https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/Data_Management_and_Integrations/Data_Spaces/Tutorial%3A_Create_and_Report_on_a_Data_Space]https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/Data_Management_and_Integrations/Data_Spaces/Tut...[/url]
While creating calculated fields in MDA object. Complete field names are not displayed we need to hover on the field to know the value. The fields are also not displayed in a sorted order. If i have many number fields then creating a calculated field becomes a time taking task[img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/gainsight-en/attachment/RackMultipart20170117-72338-9vlsnl-Calc_inline.png[/img]
I ́m updating a MDA Object thru Bulk API from a CSV file, but i need to compare the old data and the new, how can i do that? For example: Send my CSV file containing: Client: Dell Available licences: 50 Used licences: 20 Then, a month later i send my CSV file again: Client: Dell Available licenses: 50 Used licenses: 15 It ́s important for us to be aware of this decrease when updating the object, is that possible?
Does anyone know if the "Load Snapshot to Engagement every month" works retroactively? We have usage info from previous months and are exploring using this Engagement feature soon to track score history. Any idea is it will show us previous months' scores or just the most recent, previous month? Thanks!
