Load to GS Lead Action Type

Gainsight NXT


This article helps admin to use the Load to GS Lead action type using Horizon Rules in the Rules Engine.


The Load to GS Lead action type enables admins to load the data available in any Gainsight object to the GS Lead object. The action also enables them to import leads data available in different Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tools to Gainsight. This helps admins to maintain information about leads at one place.

IMPORTANT: If the sync option in the Leads configuration is selected as Sync with Salesforce, then the Load to GS Lead rule action will load to both Salesforce and Gainsight.

Gainsight recommends reading the configuration of the Rules Details, Data Setup, and Schedule steps before reading this article. For more information, refer to the Create New Rule section of the Rules Engine Horizon Experience article.
