This document will guide you through the setup and configuration of your Customer 360 Details page, which is a detailed view of a single customer in Gainsight, created by pulling data from a variety of sources. The C360 Details page is composed of multiple sections.

There are three types of sections you can include in the C360:

  • Standard sections: available out-of-the-box with Gainsight (for example, Summary, Attributes, Sponsor Tracking), but can be modified to some degree by an Admin.
  • Related list sections: to display reports on a particular topic (for example, Surveys, Contacts).
  • Embed page: for embedding visualforce pages or URLs, to display things like SFDC Chatter, or Box (file storage), in their own C360 section.    

Note: Currently there is no hard limit regarding the number of related lists that can be added to the C360. This is because any performance issues you may encounter (such as slow load times) will greatly depend on the size of the list being referenced, and the complexity of the query.

You can also learn more about configuring and using the C360 in our free self-paced elearning courses on Customer Success University.

Configure Custom C360 Layouts

You can create up to 11 custom C360 layouts and apply them to different Accounts and Users. Each layout can contain different sections and reports. Every org has one default layout which can be cloned or modified, but not deleted. For more information, see Configure Custom C360 Layouts.

Add and Configure New C360 Section

To configure Customer 360 sections (within a layout):

  1. Navigate to Administration > Analytics > C360 Layouts, and edit the relevant layout (or create a new one).

The following image shows a few sections within a layout:

  1. Use the Pencil icon to change the name of the C360 section or select where to show the section.
  2. Use the Gear icon to configure the C360 section.

Person Section in C360

Person section in C360 can be used to view the list of people associated with a company based on data from Gainsight Person Model. You can add a new section called ‘Person’ to C360 from Administration > C360 Layouts page. In the Person section, you can view records of people that you interact with while working with the Customer. Person records include name, phone, email, social media profiles, company, etc. The Person section is designed to display not only contacts at the Account but potentially anyone involved in their implementation, such as an outside consultant. With this release, you can only view the list of persons, search by name or email, and filter based on the fields in Company Person/Person object. In future releases, Gainsight plans to support Add, Edit, and Track a person from C360 directly. Also, a provision to view the org chart in the Person section will be available. To load data to Company Person or Relationship Person, use the Action Type Load to Company/Relationship Person in Rules Engine
