This document will guide you through the setup and configuration of your Customer 360 Details page, which is a detailed view of a single customer in Gainsight, created by pulling data from a variety of sources. The C360 Details page is composed of multiple sections. There are three types of sections you can include in the C360:

  • Standard sections: available out-of-the-box with Gainsight (for example, Summary, Attributes, Sponsor Tracking), but can be modified to some degree by an Admin.
  • Related list sections: to display reports on a particular topic (for example, Surveys, Contacts).
  • Embed page: for embedding visualforce pages or URLs, to display things like SFDC Chatter, or Box (file storage), in their own C360 section.    

Note: Currently there is no hard limit regarding the number of related lists that can be added to the C360. This is because any performance issues you may encounter (such as slow load times) will greatly depend on the size of the list being referenced, and the complexity of the query.

Gainsight comes with 11 standard Customer 360 Sections:

  1. Summary (see article on Customer 360 Summary Section Configuration)
  2. Scorecard
  3. Attributes (see article on Configure Customer360 Attributes Section)
  4. Transactions
  5. Cockpit
  6. Features
  7. Usage
  8. Surveys: configure the NPS score or Average NPS score to display in this section
  9. Sponsor Tracking (see article on Configure Sponsor Tracking)
  10. Relationships
  11. Success Plans
  12. Gainsight Mobile

Configure Custom C360 Layouts

You can create up to 11 custom C360 layouts and apply them to different Accounts and Users. Each layout can contain different sections and reports. Every org has one default layout which can be cloned or modified, but not deleted. For more information, see Configure Custom C360 Layouts.

Add and Configure New Customer360 Section

To configure Customer 360 sections (within a layout):

  • Navigate to Administration > Analytics > C360 Layouts, and edit the relevant layout (or create a new one).

The following image shows a few sections within a layout:

  • Use the Pencil icon to change the name of the C360 section or select where to show the section.
  • Use the Gear icon to configure the C360 section.

Configure Customer Search Settings (C360)

Admins can configure custom search settings for the search bar that appears in the right corner of every page:

1. Navigate to Administration > Customers > Customer Search Settings > CONFIGURE.

2. Select one or more field names that you would like to use for searching customers.

By default, you can search customers using Customer Info > Name.

Note: We recommend including no more than 2 fields in search criteria in order to preserve search performance. However, you can add more fields, but don’t check the “Include in Search” option. These additional fields will display in the search results as pictured below:


Add Widget type reports to Customer 360

Admins can add Widget report types to the C360 as a new summary section. Reports created on SFDC, MDA, and Data Spaces and with a lookup to Account object can be added to the C360 page. 
Note: If the fields used in the report do not have a lookup to account, the widget report cannot be displayed in C360 or R360. 
To create and add a widget report type to C360: 
  1. In the Report Builder, create a report and select Widget as the visualization type. 
  2. Navigate to Administration > C360 Layouts
  3. Click Configure (gear icon) on a Summary section. The Configure Section dialog appears. 
  4. Click Widgets tab. The widget reports available in the current org are displayed. 
  5. Drag a report from the list and drop in the Preview area. 
  6. Click Save. The Widget report is added to the layout and visible in the C360 page.
