Gainsight offers a powerful survey tool where Admins can easily create multi-page surveys with a variety of question types, including multiple choice, matrix, and a standard NPS question type.


  • Make sure that the required data is already loaded to the Company, Person model, User, and Relationship (If Relationships are enabled in your tenant) objects.
  • A Domain and Site must be created to host the Survey. The site must be configured to be linked to the survey response page. Contact your Admin to get a Domain and Site as required to host a Survey. For information on this process, refer to Setup a Gainsight Domain.
