If something is in BETA, particularly the C360 Timeline, does it mean it'll eventually go away? Asking because I want to start adoption for it soon, but don't want it if it'll not become a core feature.  

In addition, will the timeline be reportable / exportable?

Hi Chloe,

Gainsight is committed to maintaining and enhancing the C360 Timeline feature. It won't be going away! We labeled it as a beta feature with our November release because we have a variety of enhancements we're planning to make to it in the next few releases. For example, today you can't report on Activities in our Report Builder, but we plan to build that functionality soon. However, as soon as reporting is possible, you'll be able to report on any existing activity data. 

So, by all means, roll it out to your team and then come back to the Community and share your feedback! So far, we're heard from our own Gainsight CSMs and our customers that they love how Activities can be used for meeting agenda preparation, and as a note-taking tool for during the meeting.

Just in case you haven't seen our product documentation on the C360 Timeline feature, please check out Configure the C360 Timeline View (for the Admin), and Use C360 Timeline & Activities (for CSMs.)
