Custom Views in Cockpit

Gainsight NXT - Articles Impacted due to July, 2023 Release

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Our documentation is being updated to match the new July 2023 release (v6.37) navigation changes. Technical Communication team is working diligently to align everything as soon as possible. Thanks for your support.

This article explains how the custom views are created in the Cockpit.


Cockpit Views provide the primary workspace for Customer Success Manager (CSM) teams to manage their Calls to Action (CTAs) and Tasks. You can use Views to view only a particular set of CTAs. 

Following are the five types of Views available by default:

  • High Priority Overdue CTAs: Displays the list of CTAs whose status is marked High and are past the due date.
  • My CTAs Due This Week: Displays the CTAs with a due date this week, considering today as the start of the week.
  • My CTAs: Consists of CTAs assigned to a logged-in user, along with the CTAs in which the logged-in user owns a task by default. However, CTAs are automatically removed from the view when the task owned is closed from the CTA that is not owned by the logged-in user. Users can change this view to display CTAs assigned to any user and save it as a new view. For more information on this process, refer to Modify Existing View. This view can display CTAs for only one user at a time and will fail if multiple users are selected.
  • Overdue CTAs: Displays the list of CTAs which are past the due date.

CSMs can save Cockpit filter conditions as a Custom View, and the view can be modified, as well as re-named. The CTAs are displayed based on the view selected. 

Example Business Use Case: For instance, you want to present a view with CTAs based on some criteria and do not want to modify or make any changes to an existing view. Using Custom Views, you can customize it the way you want and apply filters to view CTAs that best suit your requirement. This makes your job easier and saves lots of effort.

Note: Admins can also configure Custom Views for Cockpit based on Reason, Priority, etc. using the Custom Views section in the Administration > Call to Action (CTA) page. The option to create Custom Views is only available in the Global tab. For more information on how admins can configure custom views, refer to the Custom Views section in the Configure CTA Detail View Layouts article.

For more information about commonly used filters, refer to the Cockpit List View: Commonly Used Filters article.
