Hi Team. Recently, I came across this situation where I need to Provide Rank based on some Numeric field Values.I have accomplished this logic using the Gainsight Rules Engine. And below are the steps to create Rank. First of all, the flow which I am going to show you that helps, if your data set has duplicate values or distinct values as well.Example, my data set is:And the output is like below In order to get that required output below are the steps that we have to follow in Rules Engine. Note: the steps which I am going to explain, will be the same for both types of data (Distinct or Duplicate) Step 1: Fetch the Data set with the Numeric field(in my case it’s ARR) on which we wanted to apply Rank.Based on the above sample example data the output of the step 1 is Step 2: Create a Transform task in which pull the numeric field(ARR) in to the Group By Section and drag any other field(Account ID or Name) in to Show and apply count on it.So the output of this task is Step 3: Create one
Hello everyone!My team would like to change the historical names of our plays to be consistent. Is it possible to change historical play names in JO? We are wondering if this could impact the database in JO, plays ID or any other direct impact. Any insight/suggestion is welcome. Appreciate your help!Melany
Over the past couple weeks, I’ve received multiple questions about how to start or run Office Hours. This has become a key piece to our 1:many strategy here at Gainsight. We offer a few different types of Office Hours and each has a different outcome we’re helping to achieve.CSA Office Hours - These are geared towards Operations teams who have questions about how to do something technical in their instance. CSM Office Hours - The Digital First CS team holds these once a month and deep dive on a specific topic to drive awareness and adoption. PX Office hours - Each month the PX team covers a topic to drive adoption of parts of the platform.5 steps to getting started:Start with a small group of customers - This allows you to be more intimate setting as well as get rapid feedback on the program. As we rolled out our Office Hours, we started in our Pooled CS segment. Be aggressive with your invite - I don’t mean to invite the same person multiple times. However, since you’re starting sma
Hi Team,We have customized GS home page and in My Portfolio data is sorted by company names(Default). Is it possible to sort the data by other fields from the admin side so that end user need not sort every time when they login?
Most of the credit for this post goes to @sdrostgainsightcom, who shared the bulk of these steps with me during an office hours session a while back. I’ve since added a couple notes of my own, as I’ve been dealing with a few user cleanup projects in our org. I’m hoping this can be a helpful guide for anyone else going through this process (and selfishly, I’ll probably need to reference this myself in the future!). ISSUE: When a username is changed in Salesforce for a user that is synced into Gainsight, the User Sync job, which uses the Salesforce Username as the upsert key by default to maintain the connected Gainsight User, creates a new user record: The new Gainsight user has the SAME Salesforce User ID, but has the NEW username from Salesforce – this user will not reflect the applied Gainsight license, etc. since that info remains unchanged on the original user record with the now out-of-date username. This original Gainsight User will not be updated by the sync job going forward

Hi Community,I was wondering if there are any best practices for the following: You close a deal with a multi-national enterprise and successfully expand product adoption to different business units.Each of these business units would like to have their dedicated CSM, with dedicated touch points, EBRs, etc., so for sure multiple-times effort for the CSM.Of course, usually you don’t expand with an ARR multiple of 2x, so consequence is that you will have a CSM who needs to manage e.g., 4 instead of 1 customers but within a single account.Is there any best practice how to deal with these situations that you’d like to share?Best, Carsten
Subscribe to this monthly newsletter here! Hi there,Lately, I’ve been mapping CS Ops career journeys. What does the transition look like into CS Ops or into Gainsight Administration, and then upwards, and what resources do people need? Yet, for my own career, I find myself turning more and more away from mere information, and towards time with mentors, mentees, and peer coaches. I’ve realized how hungry I am for ideas from 'far-off lands,' and for a buddy who’s willing to poke at questions of, 'What matters most, in this case?'So, I hope that, in serving up the knowledge below, I’m creating a space where you can step back from your day-to-day, even though we aren’t sitting together over a beverage. Mostly, though, I hope that you can find someone outside your company to talk with about CS Ops. I’ve come to believe that there are an awful lot of people striving to maximize their ‘doing,’ and we could use more of us who strive to pause and attend to each other, since there's so much va
What’s the org structure for your teammates who work on digital-led customer success?Here’s how it’s broken down at Gainsight:1 Director of Digital-Led Programs 1 teammate who develops always-on programs for key customer moments 1 teammate who develops customer communications (emails, virtual events, etc.) 2 teammates who develop in-app messaging 2 CSMs who used a pooled model to assist customers who don’t have a named CSM 1 teammate who manages our customer advocates and orchestrates ‘match’ requests from Sales and CS 1 teammate who provides logistical support for all of the above You could also consider community to be part of the digital/scaled support we offer to customers, and various pieces of community are owned by different teamsWhat does your digital-led team structure look like??(Credit to Emily McGrath, Director of CX @ Drift for bringing up this topic!)

Numeric values stored in the column are rounded off when used in Cockpit view. Can we show decimal values instead of rounding off?
Hello Team,We observed that the number field is getting rounded off to the nearest integer when it is used in Cockpit UI.Can we show actual number instead of rounding off?Usecase:Customer has a custom field of number type(2 decimal values are allowed) in Call to Action object to track duration.When duration is filled as 0.25, it is rounding off to “0” and when we use “0.5” or above, it is rounding off to 1.Customer wants to show the original value instead of rounded off value.Can we do that. Thanks & Regards,Srikanth
The client is having an issue with saving multiple data fields. The rich text fields on the Success Plan are causing issues for my team. When they have two fields open to add notes, such as Company Description and Business Objectives, they can only choose to save one field, which then removes all text from the other open field. Is this a known limitation within the Horizon success plans? Or is this a bug specific to our instance? They have also expressed issues with the format options and ability to use bullet points and copy/paste options.I have attached two screen shots. One is prior to pressing save, and the other is when I click save on the business objectives field. You can see that the company description disappears.I cannot provide support access, but can send you additional details if needed.Thank you!(Also, there is no option to say this case is about Success Plans in the field below)

My CSMs would like to associate a Timeline Activity created in a customer’s C360 with a CTA that was created in the customer’s R360. Since the Associated Records search won’t find the CTA created in R360, I suggested that for future CTAs, that they initially create them in C360 and not in R360 if they want to associate a Timeline Activity created in C360.

Gainsight Administrator is a creative, powerful role. It drives career development, it lives in the cutting-edge world of Customer Success Operations, and it’s both a new challenge to a systems administrator veteran and an entry-point for someone looking for a first ‘technical’ role.I know, because I’ve lived it and I’ve seen it. I became a Gainsight Admin in 2015, and earned my Level 3 Certification when it first became available. After transitioning from ‘Gainsight customer’ to ‘Gainsight employee,’ I ran Gainsight’s CS Ops team for 2 years, which included experienced Admins who have since grown into leadership, and first-time Admins who had never configured a piece of software before. In my newest role, I see the experiences of Admins with all levels of experience, plus their managers, on a daily basis. I hear about what they need and what has worked well for them.And I hear how out-of-reach the role can feel for newcomers. It’s intimidating, or confusingly different from job descri
Hey guys,I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice on how we can manage this scenario a bit better.We provide our customers with a software and we have a training team that delivers training sessions and webinars.At the moment users book via a zoom registration form, when this has been submitted our training team open a training success plan and link a pre-configured playbook.In that playbook there is a CTA called “Introduction Training” as an example, and if booked the training team will update the CTA to “Introduction Training - Booked”.Then after the training has been delivered the training team will export the attendee list from Zoom, add in the relevant GSID’s and upload the CSV to a program which sends users a follow up email with a link to their recording of the training and a feedback survey.When the follow up email is sent a CTA is created that is named “Introduction Training - Attended” that automatically closes 24 hours later.This means we can then pull a report on CT

Hello, We are also looking for a better process on our user/license managment. Wondering what other teams are doing to track their user licenses as well as how they are set up if a new user joins. We woud like to track and audit this periodically so that we know which users are applied which licenses. Does anyone have a process that they have seen work around this idea? Thank you for any feedback!
Up until today in my team, we have no way to reinforce the CSMs when a client renews. Winning takes effort and sweat so we need to find a way to: Motivate them, feel valued and recognized in the company Help them prioritize their goals as CSMs Perceive client expansion and churn fighting as an opportunity to grow The Question: how can we celebrate when we achieve success with our clients?Does anyone have examples or best practises on how to do this in your company?What are the most effective ways to reward CSMs so they keep motivated to renew and renew more account each year? I was thinking about these 2 options: A) Monthly email to the team sent by the CSM Lead with summary of the renewals using positive languageD) Mention by CSM team lead or Founder on a slide in the Company meeting - congratulating them Any other hints on your end?Your suggestions would be super valuable :) Thanks so much
