This article provides an overview of the Gainsight Home tab. The Gainsight Home dashboards are customized to display sets of reports for stakeholders, including individual CSMs, managers, executives, and boards of directors. Admins must configure dashboards within Administration > Dashboard Builder. For more information about the setup process, refer to the Configure Gainsight Home Dashboards (aka, Layouts) article.

Suggested Uses:

  • Review dashboards in executive or team meetings. Optionally, you can export the images and insert them into presentations; or email them to internal users as PPTs.
  • Use the ARR at Risk report to strategize with your team for the upcoming quarter.

Email/Export Dashboard to Gainsight users

You can email dashboards to Gainsight users in your organization as a powerpoint presentation (PPT) using the EXPORT option available on the Gainsight Home page.


  • If the current user has configured report visualization types or local filters, they are respected in the PPT version of the dashboard. Global filters are also respected.
  • If the dashboard contains tabular reports, approximately 10 rows of data will display per slide for that report.
  • You can also export a report created from a Data Space to PowerPoint.

To email a Gainsight Dashboard:

  1. Click EXPORT. The Email Dashboard as powerpoint window appears.
  2. Enter the email of the internal Gainsight recipient, subject of the email, and an optional message for the recipient.
  3. Click SEND NOW. The email is sent to the email ID's specified.
  4. (Optional) Click SEND TEST EMAIL. The Gainsight Dashboard is sent to the logged-in user for verification.
Once the export is completed, as a logged-in user, you will receive an email with the PowerPoint attached. You can open the exported dashboard in Microsoft PowerPoint or Google Slides, however Apple Keynote files are currently not supported.

Dashboard Level Filters

If your Admin setup Dashboard Level Filters, you will see a filter underneath the dashboard menu. In this example, a filter for CSM Team Manager allows each manager to view data for only their teams in the dashboard reports. To release the dashboard filter, delete the filter text.

Dashboard Level Filters

For Admin instructions on how to setup dashboard level filters, refer to the Configuring Gainsight Home Dashboards article. If you would like dashboard level filters enabled or more information in a report drill down, you can contact your Gainsight Admin.
