This article explains how to create a Slider engagement in Gainsight PX.


A Slider engagement is made up of multiple slides. When you launch a Slider, it is displayed as a lightbox on the selected page. Users can navigate through the slides to access the content of the slider. Sliders are helpful when you want to convey multiple messages or announcements, such as introducing new functionality. This article explains how to create a slider engagement.

Best Practices Using a Slider

  • Use Gainsight templates present under the Default Templates tab to create attractive sliders.
  • Do not include more than 6 slides. Users may lose interest. 
  • Do not use too much content on any slide. Add eye-catching images, videos etc.
