Gainsight Mobile App Overview

Why use the Gainsight Mobile App?

CSMs, Account Managers, and Executives need quick customer information while on the go – whether they’re headed to a customer meeting, traveling, meeting customers at conferences, or juggling a busy schedule. With limited time and many customers, CSMs and AMs also need to quickly know if key customers are at risk. Gainsight Mobile App allows you to access Timeline Activities, key customer information using Sally, and view Notifications received directly from your smartphone while on the go!

Supported Devices

Currently, the Gainsight Mobile App is available only for iOS users, and works across iPhone 6 and higher editions.


  • To use Gainsight Mobile App: Salesforce users logged in via Log in with Salesforce must first sync MDA standard objects (Company, Relationship and User) with Salesforce objects (Account, Relationship and User) in their web application, using Gainsight Connect.


The app is available to all users with a full or viewer Gainsight license.

Note: Currently, if a tenant is hosted in the regions of Europe, we aren't supporting mobile access to these tenants.

Important Note: To check whether or not you have a custom domain set up in Salesforce, please look at the browser URL. If it says, then foobar is the custom domain that needs to be entered in the Use Custom Domain screen. Adding username and password directly will not work. Also, if you have SSO configured in your Salesforce instance, adding a custom domain is the only way to log in.

Meeting insights and notes

By default, you will see that the Meeting insights and notes toggle button is enabled, after syncing your calendar events with Gainsight Mobile App. The enabled status of the Meeting insights and notes indicates that you will receive notifications for all your external events/meetings (customer meetings), 10 minutes before. 

For more information on Calendar connection, click Calendar connection.

Note: You can also disable the Meeting insights and notes toggle button, anytime if you wish not to receive notifications.

The following image shows how a notification is displayed on your mobile, when the Gainsight Mobile App is running in the background.



Push Notifications

Tapping Push Notifications will allow you to enable/disable the @mentioned in Timeline and Meeting insights and notes toggle buttons.

Calendar Connection

As an executive of a company, you may be involved in various meetings with your customers everyday. Using Calendar connection, before meeting your customer, you can get some meaningful and proactive insights, that helps in quickly understanding the current state of the customer before-hand.  

You can sync your Google/Outlook calendar events to Gainsight Mobile App, and can get notifications for all your events (10 minutes before) pre-meeting. Clicking on the notification, displays 360° Summary of Customer and a pre-filled Timeline Meeting draft for a quick note.

Calendar Connection looks for the attendees email addresses, and finds a matching Company–Person record. External attendees will receive notifications, only if the person record is added to the Company-Person object.


  • Any changes to an event such as StartDate, EndDate, Subject are honored (addition or deletion of internal or external attendees, etc.), 15 min before the meeting.
  • Calendar connection can send pre-meeting notifications to the organizers and all internal attendees (mobile users) of a meeting/event, except for the ones who have declined it.
  • Calendar connection doesn't send notifications to the internal attendees whose email addresses are duplicating in the GS User object.

Know Limitations:

  • An event with multiple external attendees belonging to different companies is not supported, and hence not notified.
  • Delay in notifications can be expected considering Google/Outlook not sending real-time notifications on time.
  • External attendees added to the meeting will not receive notifications, if the records are not available in Company–Person object.
  • External attendees added to the meeting that have duplicate records in Company–Person object will not receive notifications

To enable Calendar Connection:

  1. Tap Calendar connection.

  2. Select the calendar you want to sync with, either Google or Office 365/Outlook.

  3. Tap Connect.

  4. Enter your email address.

  5. Tap Next.

Sync Calendar.gif

If you have encountered some issues with the calendar sync, see Troubleshooting section for more information.

If you have enabled SAML/Google Authentication in your org, you will be navigated to the login page of SAML/Google Authentication. After your successful sign in, tap Allow and you will see the meetings/events sync will begin.

After a successful sync, you will now start receiving notifications for all your events (10 minutes before) pre-meeting. Clicking on the notification, displays 360° Summary of the Customer you are going to meet, and a pre-filled Timeline Meeting draft for you to make some quick notes.

Tapping Post to Timeline will log this event to Timeline, under Meeting category. And, you will no longer see this event in the notifications tab.

If you couldn't sync your calendar events or might have encountered an issue with the calendar connection, you will see a red dot on the Settings icon, as shown in the following image. To resolve this issue, you need to perform actions like Try again or Reauthorize. After performing the the necessary actions, it may take sometime for the new changes to reflect (success or failure).

Try again: performs the re-sync for calendar events, in case of any failure. Try Again can be used only once.

Note: If Try again fails, it means something might have went wrong and we recommend you to contact Gainsight Support.

Reauthorize: helps Gainsight request calendar access again for users whose account has been revoked for some external reasons.
