This document provides a quick overview of the new capabilities, design improvements, and some changes that you may observe in the new UI.


We would like to upgrade all our customers to the Cockpit Horizon Experience and request you to manually enable this for your organization. Admins must turn ON the Enable Cockpit Horizon Experience toggle button from the CTA page.

Enable Cockpit Horizon Experience

Enabling this feature is a one time action, and you cannot undo it because all of the existing data from the older version is migrated to the new Cockpit. 

To enable Cockpit Horizon Experience:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Call To Action.
  2. Turn on the Enable Cockpit Horizon Experience toggle button. A new dialog appears.
  3. Click TURN ON.


  • The process to enable this feature might take several minutes to complete. You will receive a notification email once it is completed.
  • You can contact Gainsight Support if you encounter any error during the upgrade process.


IMPORTANT: Following are some of the differences you might observe once you are in the new experience:

  • CTA Tasks are displayed in a separate tab in the CTA Detail View screen.
  • The Next task due date is not displayed below the task count, instead, it is a new column in the list view.
  • When creating recurring CTAs, the option to recur them yearly is no longer available.

Newly Added Functionalities

The following are some of the newly added functionalities in Cockpit:

  • New and improved User Interface (UI) based on the Gainsight Horizon System.

  • Ability to add any number of columns to the Cockpit List View page.

  • Reorder columns and sort on columns directly on the Cockpit List View page.

  • Filtering is much easier with a Basic and Advanced view creation experience.

  • Update/Apply filters directly from the Cockpit List View page. 

  • Color coding of Type/Status/Reason based on admin colors defined.
  • For each CTA the “Next open task due date” can be added as a separate column in the list view.
  • The profile pictures of the users added to the User Management or My Profile page are visible on the Cockpit page. User initials are displayed if the profile picture is not added. For more information on how to add a profile picture to a user, refer to the Gainsight User Management article.
    Note: Users can see profile pictures in the CTA list and detail views, but not when assigning owners (while searching).

Changes from Existing Functionality

The following are some of the changes to existing functionalities in the Cockpit:

  • [IMPORTANT] For the Cockpit Views using an advanced filter, any filter applied on the CTA Owner is applied for both CTAs and Tasks. But for Basic filters, it is applied only on the CTA Owner.
  • Tasks are displayed in a separate tab in the CTA Detail View screen, instead of an expand/collapse option in the Cockpit List View page. There is no difference in the number of clicks to view the tasks of a CTA in the old and new UI.

7. Cockpit New9.png

  • The Next task due date is not displayed below the task count. It is now a new column that users have to add to the list view.
  • For Recurring CTAs, the yearly option is not available.
  • 'Font Family' selection no longer available in RTE fields in the cockpit.
