This article explains how admins can configure a dashboard for sharing. CSMs can share a dashboard as a link via email with a user from the Gainsight Home tab. For example, a CSM could share the Monthly Renewals dashboard with the CRO of the company, which is delivered as a link via email. To enable CSMs to share a dashboard, the dashboard must first be configured for sharing by the admin. The configured dashboard can then be shared through email as a link, with optional security settings. In order to receive the dashboard as a link, the recipient must be added as a GS user into the GS User object (in MDA). For details on how to add GS users, refer to Gainsight User Object. Dashboards can be shared with anyone who is added to the GS User object, regardless of Gainsight or Salesforce license status. You can sync user records from SFDC to MDA object User by enabling Gainsight Connect. For more information, refer Gainsight Connect.
Note: CSMs can see the dashboards that are assigned by admins, using Dashboard Permissions.
- You cannot share a dashboard containing UI Views or Scorecard 1.0 reports.
