This article is the eighth item in a series of Adoption Explorer configuration articles. Gainsight recommends you to refer the initial articles of the series and then start with this article.

This article explains how admins can configure Usage section, to help view usage data of a company in C360. This is achieved by adding the usage layout defined in Adoption Explorer project, to the C360 layout configuration page. Once admins add this section, CSMs can now see the usage data of associated company as per the above configured Adoption Explorer layout on C360 page.


  • Before you configure a Usage section in a C360 layout, make sure that you have already created a Project and a Usage Layout in the respective Adoption Explorer Project. For more information on how to create an Adoption Explorer Project, and a Usage Layout in an Adoption Explorer Project, refer Configure Projects in Adoption Explorer.
