Configure PX Dashboards

This article explains how to configure a PX Dashboard, including adding and configuring widgets in Dashboards and sharing a Dashboard. Gainsight recommends that you first read the Dashboard Overview article and then proceed with this article.


PX Dashboards offer an interactive way of viewing data. By default, Gainsight provides you with the Gainsight PX Dashboard. You can create multiple dashboards, customize and share them with users across the subscription.

Business Use Cases 

Gainsight PX allows you to create Dashboards and set it with different access permission types. Following are a few examples of the three different permission types offered by Gainsight PX:

  • An admin can create a Private dashboard that only he/she can access. This dashboard can help to analyze the performance metrics of a dialog engagement, announcing a new feature that allows users to provide feedback for support articles, launched to a segment of users.
  • An admin can create a Public dashboard that shares common metrics for the subscription and make it accessible to all the users within the subscription.
  • Consider that an Account Management team in your company needs to view a dashboard that shows widgets related to all the relevant account information. An admin user can now create the required dashboard and share with the team members with customized access permissions (view/edit) for each user.
