Hello There!As a CS leader, you understand the importance of keeping your team in sync with their clients' needs and expectations. One way to achieve this is by ensuring that all communication with the client is documented and easily accessible.Gainsight's Journey Orchestrator feature now makes this even easier by logging emails sent through the platform into the timeline as an activity.But the real question is why exactly do we need to have emails logged to the timeline and how is this really helping? Here are key highlights on why this feature really excites and makes sense for the CS leaders: Increased Visibility and TransparencyWith all emails sent through Journey Orchestrator being logged in the timeline, CSMs can easily track the communication history with clients. This helps them stay on top of their clients' needs and be in sync with all the information their client is receiving. Improved collaboration and alignmentCSMs can quickly access the timeline to see what communicatio

Hello PX-ers! Pop Quiz: When should you start thinking of measuring the impact of your in app engagements? A: Before your engagements even go live! I find too many users aren’t thinking about how to measure their engagement’s impact until after it has been running. They then have to make changes to put things in place for measurement and they lose valuable insights on impact in the beginning weeks. To Quote Benjamin Franklin- “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” Hot Tip 🔥: Create an Engagement Intake Process and ensure measurement is included. If you create a process for planning an engagement, you can add elements important for measurement as a step and ensure they are included from the start. Below is an example of a checklist to go through before creating and launching any engagement. This will match your plan to the configuration needed for measurement in PX. Planning Questions: Who is the intended audience? (persona, previous usage and what stage?) Do you have

As companies try to overcome inefficiencies, many Customer Success (CS) organizations are looking to automate tasks that can help win back precious time. A “tech-touch” strategy in your Customer Success organization will allow you to scale your operations, improve the effectiveness of your team, and engage your customers in a consistent and timely manner.I’ve worked with many customers to optimize their processes by implementing a tech-touch strategy. When going down this path, there are a few things to keep in mind. Define Your Customer Journey The first step is to take a look at each stage of your customer’s journey. Within each of these stages, document your customer touchpoints. Taking the time to do this will go a long way in helping you realize where and how your team is spending their time.One of our customers, Popmenu, takes a very systematic approach to documenting daily work processes. Jess Kitt, Vice President of Client Experience with Popmenu discusses this process. “On
Hey Team, there is a report in salesforce (Data Export) , you can generate, download and see what change made by who in case of more than one admin in the instance. I think this feature also needed if it is available in GS data instance. There may be companies who have more than one Gainsight admins and who worked collaboratively on same data infrastructure. So far what we can see only Modified date and Modified by, but i think that is not enough unless there is a way to see exact change made . This will keep the GS Admin Team Synced on the instance. Thank you!
Has anyone integrated Gainsight’s Bot search with Salesforce Knowledge? If so, can you describe how you used this feature, and did you offer your customers access to Public docs? Interested in your success stories. (We have tested the integration set up, just want to learn more about how you successfully used this for your customers. )
Has anyone integrated Salesforce Knowledge for users, and if so, how are you using this for public facing content?
We are testing the integration of documents and articles within Salesforce Knowledge Base for our customers to access within the Gainsight Bot searches.We made the connection and are interested in learning how you utilize the integration so users can access public facing documents/videos from Knowledge.Thanks in advance.
When creating an engagement and wanting to edit in-app to tag a UI element, we are unable to do so. Our Web Application Firewall (WAF) which controls our endpoint thinks the Gainsight payload looks like a SQL injection and blocks it. How can this be resolved?

Scenario: When a Success Plan is shared, the end user can click on fields (hyperlinked fields- eg: Company Name) on the Success Plan in the Plan Info tab and nothing happens - this is expected when the plan is shared with non-edit permissions ( Eg: View Only Externally Shared Objectives'.)However, when the end user navigates to the Objectives tab and clicks on either the Company > Relationship or opens an Objective and clicks on the Company or Relationship links, a new tab opens, spins and gives them an error.This new pages not opening is an expected behaviour , however , it would be more user friendly if we are not opening the new pages at all like the behaviour observed when we access the fields in Plan Info tab
I am part of the marketing operations team at AVEVA. We invested in Gainsight to provide deeper customer insights and we are now researching how we can maximise our investment in Gainsight, utilising the customer insights data across other business units within AVEVA.We want to specifically understand if there are any organisations on the same path using the GS platform in conjunction with marketing, utilising their resources, and technology to provide a personalised customer experience that assists in the development of new opportunity through potential expansion or upsell nurture campaigns.Our current marketing automation tool is Marketo so anyone with the same tech would be great, however utilising any MA would be beneficial. If anyone can assist I would appreciate a discussion to understand how you implemented (technology & process) and any best practice you would be willing to share.Many thanks from sunny but cold Scotland!Cheers Allan
I see the currently new implementation of Customer Goals in the C360 as a container while the bulk of the goals are shown in the CTAs and Success Plans. This seems obvious yet I’m looking for the benefit of these opposed to having a custom goal oriented success plan. Some questions I have are:Can Customer Goals be shared externally similar to Success Plans? Can we report on customer goals with related SPs and CTAs apart from the C360 view? Are custom fields suggested to receive the most value from this new module?I’m curious if anyone has implemented Customer Goals in their Org and, if so, how is it going?
Hello everyone.I wanted to ask if anyone can share their best practice how would you identify whether a job requires only Rules Engine, or Rules Engine mixed with Data Designer?For example, I need to set score for a new measure “NPS Response Rate”. I could fetch the needed data and use a formula field and do it all within the rules engine itself. Or I could first do the fetching and calculating in data designer, then save this data as a new object that would hold a “Response Rate” field, and then reference that field in the Rules Engine.What should be kept in mind when deciding the preferred method? (Outside of possible feature limitations between these two methods I may not be aware of yet as a new admin).For example, if I use the data designer, then this response rate could be referenced later on in any report, while if all calculations are done in rules engine, this data will not be reachable by reports, unless loaded to an existing object anyways. Is that a correct assumption?This
In the C360 Customer Goals tab, the user is seeing two of the same goal after adding. This is confusing to some of our end users. There is nothing in the documentation on this being a field that shows all of the recently added goals until you hit dismiss or refresh the page. Is there a way to not show this field or to update the documentation to reflect the actions needed to clear out the orange bar, or to disable it.
Hello!Trying something new with a short Gainsight admin video. It is a bit of fun. Hopefully, you find it informative. Please share your feedback.I don't think I'm ready for TikTok just yet, but with more practice, who knows 😄I'll get us started with Data Designer because I rarely use Data Designer. And I noticed the feature wasn't particularly prevalent in the Gainsight admin certification.Two questions:Do you default to Data Designer?What do you like to use Data Designer for especially?
Are we able to pull data on template usage by Playbook and see which CSM's used what templates during specific months
Are we able to pull data on template usage by Playbook and see which CSM's used what templates during specific months.My team has requested the template usage data per Playbook like the Success Plan view which are available and viewable within the dashboard.My question is: Is there something similar to viewing the Playbook template data in Gainsight?
How to include a list of customers with same email address but purchased different products in a journey, that can be sent different product instructions in separate emails?
We are targeting customers who have low adoption scores on specific products purchased in the same invoice with the same email address. Example:Number of invoices: 1 Product: A AND B Participant: ABC Limited Email : ABC@ABC.COMGoal :Send adoption email with instructions of Product A Send another email with instructions of Product BChallenge: The participant list can only include 1 line with Product A OR B, the other one has been removed to failed Participant list with an error message ( Participant has met the advanced criteria )therefore missing out on the opportunity to send an email to the other product. Current Uniqueness Criteria :Invoice number Company name Product category Recipient email address Expected result: ABC@ABC.COM will receive 2 emailsInstruction of A Instruction of B
I am creating CTAs through a rule and would like the CTA comments field to be nicely formatted.How do I get a new line? I’ve tried <p>, <br> and I’ve tried ordered and unordered lists but none of these render properly, the html is stripped out.So I put a period at the start of a new line to preserver the space, and this looks horrible. How should I be including blank lines in the CTA Comments?
