PX Analytics helps you to keep your finger on the pulse of product adoption and user satisfaction. You can monitor the metrics that matter to you with custom dashboards, discover which features drive retention within each customer segment and user cohort, map and track customer adoption goals, analyze trends by customer segment, and more.

Enhanced Query Builder

Query Builder is now enhanced with the following features to help discover specific insights by using customized queries:

  • New Session Initialization and Page View Events
    You can now create queries based on the newly added events such as Session Initialization and Page Views. The Session Init option helps you analyze the data of sessions initiated along with other query options in the event and audience sections, and further drill down the data. The Page View option helps you create queries to understand the page views of users with further drill down using URL and UTM parameters.

Dashboards are a powerful tool to provide quick insight into different key metrics related to product QBR, growth, and adoption. Users can also create their own unique dashboard to access the metrics that matter to them, at a glance.

User Retention Dashboard Widget

Gainsight PX now allows you to add the User Retention or the Stickiness Ratio widget on your custom dashboard to analyze and measure the ability of your product to retain its customers over a 30 day period. It is calculated as the ratio of Daily Active Users (DAU) to Monthly Active Users (MAU) or DAU/MAU.

This widget helps you to: 

  • Visualize the trend in User Retention for your product in the last 30 days. 
  • Determine relative User Retention for your product on a daily basis. 
  • Determine the percentage of drop/rise in User Retention compared to the preceding 30 day period.
  • Apply standard widget filters for obtaining specific stickiness ratios.

Engagements are the communications that are executed through product (in-app) or emails for a specific audience at a specific time. These communications can be interactive in nature which helps you to share information, receive feedback, and engage customers with your product. The overall goal of using engagements is to increase your customer's product usage.

Re-organized Audience Rules in Engagements

Audience rules in the engagement screen are now organized with the most used rules on the top for easy accessibility. The Custom Events, Global Context and Segments rules are displayed on the top of the Rules list in the Engagement Audience section.


Fixed Lifetime Views Column on Engagements List Screen

The Lifetime Views column on the Engagements list screen is now fixed and does not need page scrolling to view the number of views recorded for an engagement.

Embed Dialog Engagements Using CSS Selector

Embedding Dialog engagement within your application is now possible. This feature helps you configure the engagement so that it does not overlay with other user interface components on your application. 

To use this feature, select the check box in the Embed section of the Editor tab and specify the CSS selector in the Selector field. 

Note: The 'div' element on the target page must be configured without any styling as <div class="<your-selector>"></div>.


Customize the Badge Reposition Time in Guide Engagement

Gainsight PX now provides you the option to set the time interval for badges to reposition faster with user actions such as window resizing or scrolls. 

To use this feature, navigate to Administration > SDK Settings and specify the time (in milliseconds) in the Badge reposition response time (ms) field.


Knowledge Center Bot

Knowledge Center Bot is an onboarding assistant that guides users in learning your product. The bot contains links to engagements and external URLs in order to effectively onboard new users, as well as educate existing users. Optionally, you can also integrate your knowledge base (eg. Zendesk or Mindtouch) content to display in the bot.

Configure KC Bot Feedback Categories and Workflow

Salesforce Integrations

The Gainsight PX Salesforce Integration allows for copying data from Salesforce to Gainsight PX on the Account and User records. If a matching SFDC record is found for a given Gainsight PX record, then the chosen fields on the field mapping screen are copied from the Salesforce object to the matched Gainsight PX record.

New Metrics in PX-Salesforce Integration

Gainsight PX Salesforce integration is now enhanced with new PX metrics that can be synchronized to Salesforce. This helps you analyze and gain deeper insights using PX data in Salesforce based on your business needs.

The following new metrics have been added:

  • 1 Day Visits Count: The number of visits in the past 24 hours.
  • 7 Day Visits Count: The number of visits  in the past seven days.
  • 30 Day Visits Count: The number of visits  in the past 30 days.
  • DAU/MAU Ratio: The ratio of Daily Active Unique users as of the past 24 hours and the Active Unique users in the past 30 days.

Also, the labels for the existing Delta metrics are updated as ‘% change’ to easily understand the context. For example, the ‘30 Day Active User Delta’ metric is now changed to ‘% change in 30 Day Active User’. 

For more information on the data synchronization in PX-Salesforce integration, refer to the Data Pulled from Salesforce and Data Pushed to Salesforce sections in the Salesforce Integration in Gainsight PX (Bi-Directional) article.

Gainsight PX Contentful Integration

Gainsight PX now offers an integration with Contentful to provide access to knowledge base content in the knowledge center bot. When PX is configured with Contentful, you can view and search from the resources available in the Contentful knowledge base through the PX Knowledge Center Bot.

For more information, refer to the Gainsight PX Contentful Integration article.


Export Engagement Clicks Extract File to Amazon S3

Gainsight PX now provides you the option to export the engagement clicks extract file to the Amazon S3 bucket in JSON, XML or CSV format. This data can be used to analyze user behavior/trend or trigger workflows in external applications.

To export the file, select the User Engagement Clicks checkbox on the AWS S3 Settings window. For more information, refer to the Integrate S3 Export section of the Gainsight PX AWS S3 Integration article.

Gainsight PX is a powerful application that helps you create in-app engagements to track various events from your mobile application. The Gainsight PX mobile SDK can be used by mobile developers to integrate Gainsight PX into their mobile application. This integration allows Gainsight PX to send real-time events from your mobile app.

Once-per-visit Qualification Scope for Mobile Engagements

You can now configure mobile engagements to be viewed once per visit using the new qualification scope option. This helps in ensuring that the critical engagements you launch receive the intended views from the end users.

Track CTA on the Mobile Guide Engagements

Gainsight PX Platform supports a variety of security measures to protect against vulnerabilities, for instance with respect to PX in-app engagements and cross-site scripting attacks.

Enhanced SSO/SAML Authentication Using Identity Providers

Gainsight PX has enhanced the login mechanism. Users can now enter the username (emailID) of their PX account and then select the Identity providers (IdP) via which they want to login to PX. PX application navigates the user to the IdP login page where they can enter the credentials for their IdP account.


  • The SAML settings can be configured using the SSO/SAML page in the Administration menu. For more information on how to configure SAML in PX, refer to the Configure SAML Authentication article.
  • Users can also log in to PX using their emailID and password without selecting the IdP.


Advanced TLS 1.2 support for Gainsight PX Endpoints

Gainsight PX has added new ESP endpoints to support users who require more advanced TLS support for PX endpoints. The current ESP endpoints continue to be the default and will support all the older versions of web browsers.  The new enhancement is helpful if you want to drop support for older browsers and move to a more modern version of TLS.

For more information on how to configure this feature, refer to the Configure Advanced TLS 1.2 Support article.
