HI Hannah!  Similar boat here when I first came on.  There was another ADMIN who setup the foundation of our Gainsight.  What ended up helping me the most, was sitting with the users and seeing how they used the software - from there I can look at the back end to see how it all worked.  There is so much the software can do, and can become wicked overwhelming if you try and take it all on at once!  Taking it section by section helped me a lot.  Granted, the I'm still getting familiar with the Rules Engine and how that all works.

The community here is also really helpful!  They've helped me solved a few problems that I was running into a brick wall on!  A+ Community!  The URLs that Sai provided are great.  I went through the training videos and they helped fill in parts that I was missing.  The "https://support.gainsight.com/" area is also very helpful for reviewing their documentation!

Welcome to the Community, Hannah! Let us know if you have any questions about the above resources. I definitely recommend starting with the Admin 100 training through customersuccessuniversity.com which you can complete at your own pace and schedule.
