What I love about Gainsight support is not only the technical prowess, but the customer service skills. Impeccable. (Cameron Wright in particular is stellar.) It's as if they have all been through the Disney customer service training program (which, for those of you not familiar is pretty rigorous - no one handles or cares about the customer experience like Disney!) Most of my experiences working with (and for) support teams with various software vendors has been bland, less than courteous and I was left feeling (or I heard of customers feeling) like I was just another case in the queue. Gainsight really is a [u]high[/u] step above that. I am made to feel like my issue is the only issue they are concerned with (even though I know they're juggling dozens more) and they are on it. That feeling goes a long way, especially with particularly dicey issues - or when the issue turns out to be self-inflicted or due to an oversight on the part of the admin.
Polling for your experience with CSMs using chats to communicate with their customers. Is this being done with a specific group of clients - high touch, low touch, tech touch? Do you find that making the CSMs reachable through this means works well with scaling? What advantages and challenges did you come across for the Customer Success world?
On just my first day back at work after Pulse, I've shared Elements with two members of our exec team, a CSM, and two networking contacts. So far, I've just pointed them at [url=http://www.gainsight.com/elements]www.gainsight.com/elements[/url], which does have a beautiful interface and a good degree of detail. It's a bit high-level, though. So, it doesn't include some great content like change management best practices. (Not that someone wants to start at a detailed level, but it would be great to be able to drill into it.) Meanwhile, the presentations from Pulse's "Science of Customer Success" track are available online, but are [i]very detailed, and don't cover every Element. Is there a 'Goldilocks' resource available yet, or am I doing a good job at making the most of what's available so far? :-)
I'm looking for best practices around internal NPS submissions for receiving feedback from a contact via email only where they didn't actually complete the survey. The internal question option is great, especially now since we can go back and retroactively add in additional feedback received from email or other conversations [i]for that particular survey response. On a couple occasions we have received only this written feedback due to the survey link not working (usually a cache issue we found after testing). [list] [*]Do you complete the full survey on their behalf? [*]Since the NPS question is required, do you make an educated guess on this rating (I don't think this is appropriate)? [*]Do you create a cloned survey for these comments, mainly for storing the data?[/list] Your thoughts are appreciated!
Is it possible to have Contact records displayed under the C360, so that our CS managers can log tasks under these contact records from Gainsight? We want our CS managers to use Gainsight only for this kind of work, but unsure if this is possible or not. Many thanks, Ana Costa

Hello Gainsters! Has anyone had success in storing client recorded meetings, such as links from webex etc.? I could store the hyperlink in the activity part of Timeline however, that would be difficult to refer back to especially if there are a lot of activities to scroll through. Preferably, would like a quick reference option, either standalone specific to recordings or other. Would appreciate learning what others have done! Thank you and enjoy your day!

It would be nice to have an Executive license that is read only so they can see Timeline, Success Plans, Health Score for each customer. I know we have the option to share Success Plans via a link but this is not sustainable when I need an executive to see every customer's Success Plan as I would have to go to EVERY customer and physically click share and do that for each Executive as well. In the same fashion it would be nice to expose Timeline too.
We utilize the relationships feature to keep track of many programs that customers are running with us. Every program is important but if one program is red we would rather know the account is red - showing the account has important action items and may be at risk. Is there a way I can roll up the lowest relationship score as the account overall score? What does that configuration look like?

It is great to show the dollars in graphs but there are some graphs that just show the number and I am unable to format the number. For instance when I do a pie chart and say show values it will show me the percentages on the right in the legend and then the number values on the pie charts but it is hard to read "4355695483.98" compared to "$4,355,695,483.98". and it would be nice to be able to round to the closest dollar.
Hi all, For those of you who don't know me, I lead the Customer Advocacy team at Gainsight. We're doing research on how Gainsight can better help drive advocacy and would love your input on the below questions: -- What advocacy tools do you use today? -- How, if at all, do you integrate these tools with Gainsight today? -- How would you like to see Gainsight better integrate with the advocacy world over time? Thanks for your input!
I'm running into issues where I cannot assign the CTA owner to the SFDC user contact from our Salesforce Account Object. We currently have these field below as look up contact fields in SFDC Account. 1. Account Manager 2. Customer Success Program Manager 3. On-Boarding Manager The CTA's I'm creating need to be assigned to one of the three above. By default, these fields are not available for me to use as an "owner field" I'm creating these rules from GS Relationship, Matrix Data, Activity Timeline, etc. for reference. How can I get the look up contact fields from the SFDC account as the "owner field?"
All, Our CSMs are using Gainsight primarily as a place to log activities. They're not living in it and we can't figure out why. They still seem to be keeping spreadsheets, post-its etc. So, I'd like to understand what the ideal CSM workflow looks like in Gainsight - that way, I can try to retrain and/or get a better sense of why they're not using it in that ideal way. Help?
We have been running for about 7 months with the same rules and calculations behind our 8 health measure that make up our total health score. After some analysis, we are working to do a major overhaul on two of our objective measures. Basically the logic and rules behind two of our 8 measures are going to change. Therefore, we have a "new" scoring system. We will be reviewing some reports and doing some tests on how the "new" way of scoring is going to impact our overall scoring across the customer base, but we are interested if in the c360 scorecard view, is there , will there be a marker or indication on the trend views of where we implemented a new scoring system or set of measures ? Can we add something so its easy to see that we made a significant change to our measuring system ? I believe we could add a milestone in each account , but we are looking for some indicator in the overall health trend detailed view ? thank
Hello, Looking to see how other admin's have solved currency conversion to USD within gainsight, or a load from SFDC. Today: ARR is shown in it's native currency in SFDC & then has a converted USD option for visibility & reporting, however that is not an option to load to the company object in Gainsight. I can work on a solution with our SFDC admin team however I'd like to see if there's an in-house solution first. How are other groups building their Gainsight operations to be able to show only USD? I cannot find any support articles so any help is appreciated!
I am creating a couple of Success Plan Templates that my team can use to get a quick start. I created one Called First Win, which captures some key objectives that we identify when a new customer goes live. This template shows Key Players, Risks, Reason they bought our product, and timelines to First win. I am looking for a few idea for other 'LifeCycle' Success Plan Templates and their associated objectives.
Hi Gainsight Community! I'm doing some research on how our clients manage renewals workflow and particularly renewals forecasting/reporting in Gainsight - or how they would like to do it.

I have milestones that are automatically created once a CTA closes. How can I track the difference in number of days between two milestone date? Example Milestone 1: Onboarding, created date = 12/13/2018 Milestone 2: Launch, created date 12/16/2018 I'm looking to get difference in between the two dates and get the average to get a good estimate of average onboarding time. Or is there another way to better track this you can recommend?
