Team View empowers your cross-functional team with rich customer data and collaboration capabilities within their primary system. Team View takes the tactical knowledge gathered by customer facing teams, and makes it visible for everyone else, including sales and executive teams. This article is designed to explain how Team View can solve problems and to tell users what they can expect to find in the Team View. The Team View widget is mainly designed for users who have the Gainsight NXT Viewer License. Team View provides customer information from Gainsight without ever leaving the account, case, or opportunity page in Salesforce. You can use this information to gain immediate insights into customer health, discover renewal opportunities, prepare for customer meetings, and more.

Admins can embed a Gainsight NXT widget in Salesforce Sales or Service Cloud to start improving the customer experience through better cross-functional alignment.

Advantages of Team View

Following are the advantages of Team View:

  • Get better Customer insights: Team View provides customer insights in a user’s primary system. This helps them prepare for customer calls or meetings, and stay in-the-know about the key dates and activities at that customer (e.g., upcoming renewal date, recent NPS® survey score, high priority support cases, etc).  

  • View interactions and schedule meetings: Team members can use the Timeline tab to quickly catch up on customer history, or schedule new meetings or appointments with customers based on their performance.
