Gainsight CS makes customers your best growth engine. Get a comprehensive view of your customers, understand trends and risks, and empower your team to scale with proven actions that deliver outcomes.

Adoption Explorer

 Click here to expand for more information on Adoption Explorer

Adoption Explorer (AE) helps manage your customer’s usage data in the Gainsight environment, and surface the most relevant view of usage data across your customer base.

AE offers powerful segmentation capabilities to manage multiple product lines, more robust control of aggregations and calculations, and re-imagined visualizations to surface deep insights.

Customer’s usage data at Company and/or Person level can be stored with their entitlements on a daily and weekly level. Using the ingested data, admins can define new derived fields without the need of Rules Engine.

Define Date Range for Data Ingestion from S3

Admins can now define the number of days of usage data (including current date) that must be re-ingested from S3 to the Adoption Explorer objects. This setting allows data ingestion for Date (T) while upserting data for the prior (T-n) days as part of scheduling.

To use this feature, navigate to the Objects tab and specify the Last N Days of Data value in the Source configuration page. 

Example Business Use Case: Your product’s usage data stored in the S3 bucket for the given day could have updates after a day or two based on various parameters/insights. You can upsert all the data for prior days by configuring this parameter.

For more information, refer to the Amazon S3 section of the Configure Adoption Explorer Objects article.


Horizonization of Adoption Explorer Usage Sections

Gainsight has improved the look and feel of the Adoption Explorer usage sections powered by the Horizon Design System, and also made the widget options easily accessible. Admins and CSMs can select and apply the new theme for the widgets.


Click here to expand for more information on Scorecards
Gainsight Scorecards allow you to track multiple dimensions of a customer’s health and also provide you the ability to report on recorded dimensions. Each dimension in a Scorecard is known as a Measure. You can use multiple Measures to track various aspects of a Customer’s health. With Scorecards, you can set a score for each Measure either manually or automatically through Rules Engine. Scorecards provide you with the flexibility of using numbers, letters, or colors as grading schemes.
Create Company and Relationship Scorecards with the same Name

Gainsight has changed the naming convention for scorecard fact objects to differentiate between Company and Relationship scorecards and to give users more flexibility when naming them. Users can now create a Company scorecard with the same name as a Relationship scorecard and vice versa.

For more information on creating scorecards, refer to the Create Scorecards 2.0 article.

Success Snapshots 2.0

Success Snapshots 2.0 enables admins to generate Powerpoint presentations with customer data and graphs from Gainsight, using your own customized presentation  (business review deck) uploaded to the Success Snapshot repository, and help CSMs run their customer meetings (such as EBRs and QBRs). Once a Success Snapshot template is created and saved, CSMs will be able to export them from C360 and R360 pages respectively.

Example Business Use Case: An admin wants to resize and reposition the element instantly while configuring the Snapshot.

Horizon Image.png View and Honor Font and Font Size of Imported Slide

Success Snapshot now displays the Font and Font Size of the slide that you import, and also honors them when admins select the Default option from the Font and Font Size drop-down list. This is applicable only for the new snapshots.
