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!

IMPORTANT: To leverage new features to their full extent, Gainsight recommends you update the Mobile App to the latest version.

With this release, Timeline now supports multi-select dropdown fields for Customer Success Managers(CSMs) to add multiple values while logging a Timeline Activity in the Gainsight Mobile app.

Example Business Use Case:  While logging an Activity related to a risk, CSMs would want to add multiple reasons for the Risk. This would only be possible if the admin has set the Field type to Multi Select Dropdown while creating the field.

For more information on Multi-Select Dropdown Fieilds, refer to the Mobile 360 article.


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 the Rules Engine. Scorecards provide you with the flexibility of using numbers, letters, or colors as grading schemes.
View Current and Original Contribution of Measures and Measure Groups

In the new group weights system, when a score becomes NA (Not Assigned), you can now view and compare the current percentage contribution and original percentage contribution of Measures and Measure Groups from C/R360. Prior to this release, the current percentage contribution was not visible. The weight of that NA Measure or Measure Group gets updated to zero and distributed to other Measures or Measure Groups with scores assigned. You can hover on the current percentage contribution to see the original percentage contribution. For more information on how the weight distribution happens, refer to the Group Weights and Exceptions article.

Click here to expand for more information on Success Snapshots
Success Snapshots enables admins to generate Powerpoint presentations with customer data and reports from Gainsight, using your own customized presentation uploaded to the Success Snapshot repository, and help CSMs run their customer meetings (such asEBRs and QBRs).

Horizon Image.png manual.png New Success Snapshots

IMPORTANT: The new Success Snapshots is now available in the following manner:

  • If you have one or more Success Snapshot Templates in your Success Snapshot Builder, contact Gainsight Support to get the new version of Success Snapshot enabled. The option to migrate to the new version is due April 2023. Following, the new version will be enabled automatically for all Gainsight Users. 
  • If you do not have any Success Snapshot template, then the new version of Success Snapshot is activated automatically with this release.
  • If you are not on the 6.34 version of the Gainsight edition, then you must update to the latest version to become compatible with the new Success Snapshots. 

Success Snapshots helps admins to upload customized presentations that need to be configured with dynamic data points from Gainsight. With the release, admins can let the Customer Success Managers (CSMs) clone and modify a template based on their business requirements without impacting the original template. This helps to automate recurring presentations for CSMs, like Quarterly Business Reviews for their customers. This template can be used by all CSMs repeatedly, which saves time and effort for the organization. The new Success Snapshots simplifies the user interface and makes it easy for admins and CSMs to use the enhanced capabilities.

Following improvements have been implemented:

  • Easy to use editor
  • Enhanced sharing capabilities for CSMs
  • Ability to work with text boxes
  • Custom font styles for slide content
  • Ability to preview slides 
  • Ability to organize Success Snapshot Templates in folders
  • Ability to manage share permissions at templates and folders level

CSMs can now view, clone and edit, organize, and manage share permissions for their Success Snapshots from Success Snapshots in the global navigation pane. The clone feature allows CSMs to create a copy of their Success Snapshot and make necessary changes. This helps in retaining original configurations done by the admin in the template.

Note: Permissions assigned to CSMs by the admin for a Success Snapshot Template impacts their ability to view, clone and edit, and manage share permissions for that template.

Data Designer makes it easier for you to discover richer, more meaningful insights from your customer data. It provides a simple, easy-to-use solution to merge and transform your data, then make it accessible across the Gainsight platform for further analysis and exploration.
Deactivate Schedule for Data Designs

When a Data Design does not run successfully for five consecutive schedules, Gainsight deactivates that Data Design automatically. The users are notified by an email about the inactive state of the Design, which helps them to rectify the errors in the Data Preparation stage and re-schedule the run. Once the errors are rectified, users can perform a manual test run of the design. After the successful test run, the original automated schedule will be honored.


  • Email Notifications will be sent to the following users:
    • Users who are added as recipients in the Send Notification Email in the failure section of the Configure stage.
    • User who created the Design, if the above user list is not added.


Connectors 2.0

Click here to expand for more information on Connectors 2.0
Connectors are integrations that are offered out-of-the-box so you can connect various data sources and sync their information to Gainsight.
Service Account Authentication in BigQuery Connectors

In addition to the existing OAuth authentication for BigQuery Connectors, admins can now use the newly introduced Service Account authentication type.

The Service Account key consists of JSON Web Tokens as part of the authentication generated, while creating service accounts in the Google Cloud Platform. 
When an existing user with an authenticated connection becomes inactive, it leads to a loss in the connection.  Furthermore, when a new user tries to create a connection, it requires to be re-authenticated. To prevent such scenarios, the Service Account authentication helps by eliminating manual or interactive user authentication.

For more information  on how to use the Service Account authentication, refer to the Google BigQuery Connector article.
