  • If Scorecards 2.0 is enabled from Setup > Installed Packages, Admins can add the same section while configuring the section in Shared360 for the CSMs/AMs to share with end-users. For more information, refer to Configure Scorecards (2.0).
  • In the Shared360 > Scorecard 2.0 section, end-users can view the overall health score with a trend indicator that indicates whether the customer's overall health score is trending up, down or remaining steady. End-users can also view the customer's overall health trend history and any manually entered notes.

This ensures that the shared layout link can be accessed only by end-users with a specific IP address.

If CSMs/AMs select Users option from the Send to drop-down list, records from the User object are available to select in the Choose Users field.

New Features:

Gainsight introduces the Shared 360 functionality which enables Admins to share customer information (in read-only mode) with non Gainsight/SFDC users. This feature helps align the stakeholders of your customer, partner or vendor on a single source of truth. Shared360 enables everyone involved in an account to coordinate and prioritize their actions around a unified understanding of health. Stakeholders can view the Shared 360 through a web page for easy access outside of the Gainsight application. It is configurable by Admins and may contain Summary, Account Attributes, Reports, and Relationships sections. The configured information can then be shared through email as a link, with optional security settings with the recipients’ ids.The recipient needs to be added as a GS user into the GS User object (which will be in MDA). For more information on how a GS user can be added, refer to Gainsight User Object.

IMPORTANT: Shared 360 (link) can be shared with anyone who’s been added to the GS User object - regardless of Gainsight or Salesforce license status. Admins can choose to add an optional One Time Password (OTP)  that can be generated for a maximum of five times per link and the end-user can re-try it three times. There is also an option to set up an expiration date.

  • For more information about how admins can create, configure, manage, delete 360 Layouts, and help Customer Success Managers (CSMs)/Account Managers (AMs) to share customer information, refer to the Configure Shared 360 article.
  • For more information about how CSMs/AMs can share customer information/360 view, refer to the Shared 360 Overview (for CSMs) article.
  • For more information about how end-users (non Gainsight/SFDC users) can view the customer information/360 view, refer to the View Shared 360 article.
