This dashboard consists of five reports geared towards optimizing visibility across a team or across an entire CSM organization using CTAs, Accounts, Upsells/Renewals, NPS scores, and Habits and then breaking them up by CSM and by team. This allows managers to quickly understand the scope of each CSM’s workload and efforts and each CSM’s impact across your team structure. As your CSM organization grows, it's essential to be able to easily grasp and understand this information from a team leader’s perspective.

These reports are intended as examples only, using demo organization data and records. In some cases, the field names may be different in your own orgs, or we may be using a custom field.

Report #1: CTAs by CSM and CSM Team Manager

  • Object :: NPSSurvey Response, Display Name :: Count of Id (note: Aggregation has been switched to Count)

3. In By, we want to slice the data based on CSM Name as well as NPS Score Type (Promoter, Passive, Detractor)

  • Object :: Account, Display Name :: CSM Name
  • Object :: NPSSurvey Response, Display Name :: NPS Score Type

4. Depending on your business needs, you may want to expand or contract the date range using filters. The following filters are examples:

  • ResponseDate = Last 90 Days (or whatever historical period you would like)
  • Survey Code (this optional filter is used to make sure that we have data for specific NPS Surveys we would like to view. Each Survey within Gainsight has a code associated with it that you can select here.)

5. Click “Apply” and then set your visualization type to “Column”.

6. (Optional) You also may find that looking at NPS Survey Responses as a percentage is more valuable than just an overall count. To do so, go back to the Report Settings Icon, go to Chart Options, and toggle Show Percentage to ON.

Report #5: Habits by CSM

Report #5: Habits by CSM

Before building the Habits by CSM report, you may wish to review the Habits Risk Overview for information on how to set up a Habits Score framework within your own organization.

1. Select the User Adoption object as the data source.

2. In Show me, to view the total number of accounts, select something similar to the following and make sure the aggregation is set to “Count”:

  • Object :: Usage Data, Display Name :: Account Name, Aggregation :: Count

3. In By, the goal is to slice the data by week and by the habits/health score group that the accounts fall under. The following is an example of how you might set up the “By” section:

  • Object :: Account, Display Name :: CSM Name
  • Object :: Usage Data, Display Name :: Habits Score Group

4. Depending on your business needs you may want to expand or contract the date range using filters. The following filters are examples:

  • Usage Data Aggregation Level Name = Account Level
  • Week Label = Last week
  • Habits Score != null

The above filter is used to make sure that we have data for customers with actual Health Scores. A new customer to Gainsight may not have a Health Score yet, and thus we don't want to report on it.

5. Click “Apply” and then set your visualization type to “Stacked Column”. The final report should resemble the above image.

6. Enter a report name and click Save.

Dashboard Configuration

Dashboard Configuration

Please refer to the article Configure Gainsight Home Dashboards for information on how to assemble these reports into a dashboard on the Gainsight Home tab. Above is a sample image of the completed Management Visibility dashboard.

Configure "CSM Team Manager" Custom Field (optional)

Configure "CSM Team Manager" Custom Field (optional)

Step 1: Add CSM Team Manager field to Account object

Navigate to Setup > App Setup, click CustomizeAccounts → Fields, and then click the New button, adjacent to “Account Custom Fields & Relationships.”

Note: Select “Picklist” as your ‘Data Type.’ For Picklist options, this is the name of each of your Team Managers.
 

Step 2: Set up rules to automatically assign accounts to their respective Team Managers

The rule will say (for example, Team Manager=Kelly), IF Status=Active, and CSM Name = X, Y, or Z (however many names are on Kelly’s team), then CSM Team Manager field = Kelly.

Your ‘Setup Filter’ page should look something like the image above.

And your logic should look like this: A and (B or C or D or E or F or G or H or I or J) where each Account::CSM Name = a name of each CSM on that specific team.

Your ‘Setup Action’ should look like the following:
 

Choose “Load to SFDC Object” as your Action Type, and choose the “Account” Object.

Per usual, you will want to connect Account::Id to Id, so each account will be recognized and map correctly.

Then, you will want to create a custom mapping, where CSM Team Manager field = Team Manager name (or Kelly, for our example).

Finally, in Schedule, you can go ahead and schedule nightly.

Make sure the rule is ON and schedule.

REPEAT this step for however many different teams you have, one for every team under their Team Manager’s name.
