Has anyone found a successful way of tracking an SOW that is outside the scope of an opportunity? For example, if a statement of work has been signed which is open-ended for a period of time, it is not captured within an opportunity today. Preferably, I would still like to be able to capture that revenue in an opportunity or perhaps as a separate identifiable way. Thank you in advance for the ideas!

Hi all -- We're building out our Customer Journey programs and I was hoping to source some good content from y'all. Do you have a job description you've used for the person who is leading your Customer Journey strategery*? A few things that come to mind: This could be a business heavy Customer Ops role. This could be a project charter that your company scoped when building out your Customer Journey strategy. This could be related or not related to a Customer Marketing role. Thanks so much! *Yes, I know that's not a word, but it feel like it fits the ask :)
Is any of you involved in creating awareness/enablement campaigns for end users that you are not in direct contact with? The challenge is to get your contacts to reshare the posts you send them. I am involved in such situation and having quite a challenge with these gatekeepers. Aside from - promoting the adoption value of these campaigns - not calling them "campaigns" so they do not get confused with marketing tactics - making them conveniently available to follow their deployment schedule - offering the capability to understand the reach and the impact on usage I am thinking about - offering.gifts certification when we can see total shares in hundreds or thousands - providing access more often to goodies like infographics, videos, etc. What has been your experience? Any good tip or word of advice?
Hi, I was just wondering whether there was a way to choose a default page for when you log into Gainsight. For example, having the Timeline open to your own clients. This will just save navigating every time to the part of the platform that you use the most. If this is not possible, I was wondering if there are any work arounds or time saving tricks for navigation to your own clients? Thank you in advance!
Hoping for some suggestions/ideas here. We have a product that depending on the reason for purchase will not have "normal" usage. Our CSM Leadership team is looking for a way to indicate whether a user will be a power user or a more seasonal/occasional user, and then, tailor alerts and copilot campaigns based on that designation. Has anyone done something similar? I'm thinking we could create a field on the contact record to designate, and then, use that as a filter for Copilot. Since we have multiple products though, that could get tricky. Would love any additional ideas.

During [url=http://www.gainsight.com/pulse/]Pulse 2017[/url] the Gainsight Client Outcomes Team organized a Circles of Success & Birds of a Feather Program, featuring [b]group discussions[/b] for [b]Gainsight customers[/b] focused on [b]key topics and challenges[/b]. We had such engagement from our customers we wanted to keep the conversation going on Community. One of the topics we discussed was [b]Technical CSMs/Customer Success Architects[/b]. Here are a few of the questions that we discussed: [list=1] [*]How should I think through the team structure? Who does what and what capabilities to look in the different roles? [*]What are your large differentiators between your CSM group and Technical CSM group? [*]Compared to using a general support team, does assigning a Technical CSM to a customer make the customer more self-sufficient, or more dependent? [*]What is the ideal role of a Technical CSM, to conduct an onboarding/initial setu
When will we add the ability for other roles besides Admins to access the G360? Admins are not generally the ones driving adoption of Gainsight, so the real value of G360 is for access by Adoption Champions, including Directors and Team Managers. Customers are asking for the ability to have broader use. A way to export and distribute internally would also be helpful. Any way to get the right people looking a the content would be a win-win!
The primary use case of Success Snapshots is EBR or any other similar business presentation to the execs etc. In the process of exporting a report as snapshot, which essentially is a slide deck, today we let user include any comments field that is present in the report. Comments is a long text field and doesn't easily fit into one slide. Given the nature of a slide presentation (which is supposed to capture highlights of the intended meeting and be presented along with commentary), do we really need to allow comments fields in Success Snapshots ? Atleast one customer I posed this question to during Pluse said, they are not expecting comments kind of long text fields in Success Snapshot slides. I want to validate my thought process with more customers before making any call on either continuing that feature or taking it out. Your active feedback helps here. With out comments. snapshots will look a lot neater. But your voice is final :-)
I was informed last week that we will be expanding our Customer Success team to also cover our SMB market. This is both exciting and terrifying! Right now our Gainsight implementation is 100% focused on our enterprise product. In turn, we only pull in customer records that own our enterprise product. I am hoping the community can give me some guidance on how to properly set things up to pull in the SMB customer type. Additionally, I'd like to put up a virtual "wall" between the to customer situations inside of Gainsight so we don't accidentally have CTAs or things triggering for accounts that it shouldn't. Is this as easy (and as time consuming) as adding the account record type name to everything we do in Gainsight? Thanks!
Hi all, I'm trying to proactively work with our internal tech staff to better handle changes to our data points that we are sending over to Gainsight via Segment. One of our architects suggested I provide him with a document of all of our fields in our usage data table and subsequent rules that use them. Is there an easy way to do this within Gainsight? How do you handle these changes? Do you have a business analyst working as a liaison between your tech staff who are making these fields and your Gainsight admin? Or is your Gainsight admin a member of your tech staff who is now drinking the Gainsight brew and knows both the data points going in and everything they are connected to in Gainsight? Lastly, do you all have a Gainsight Sandbox within SF that's also connected to your data connector? Just curious. Thanks, Jess
