Configure Adoption Explorer Section in C360


This article is the eighth item in a series of Adoption Explorer configuration articles. Gainsight recommends you to refer the initial articles of the series and then start with this article.

This article explains how admins can configure Adoption Section in C360, to help view usage data of an account in C360. This is achieved by adding the usage layout defined in Adoption Explorer project, to the C360 layout configuration page. Once admins add this section, CSMs can see the usage data of associated company as per the above configured Adoption Explorer layout on the C360 page.


  • Before you configure an Adoption Explorer section in a C360 layout, create a Project and a Usage Layout in the respective Adoption Explorer Project. For more information on how to create an Adoption Explorer Project and a Usage Layout in an Adoption Explorer Project, refer to the Configure Projects in Adoption Explorer article.
  • To enable this project in C360, External Id in Adoption Explorer object must be mapped to external identifier field in the Gainsight's Company Object. Alternately, you can create a custom field in the Gainsight's Company object from the Data Management page, and load the external ids into that field, and then map with the external id field in the Adoption Explorer object. For more information on how to do this mapping, refer to the Projects and Project Settings article.
