Configure Usage Section in C360/R360

Gainsight NXT


This article helps admins configure the Usage section in C360.


This article explains how admins can configure Usage Section, to help view usage data of a company/relationship in C360/R360. This is achieved by adding the usage layout defined in Adoption Explorer project, to the C360/R360 layout configuration page. 


  • Before you configure a Usage 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 also 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.
  • To enable AE layouts in R360, Instance Identifier field in Adoption Explorer project must be mapped to the ID field (GS Relationship attribute) that uniquely identifies the Relationship in Gainsight’s Relationship object. This mapping creates a lookup for AE InstanceID to the GS Relationship object, and resolves the Instance identifier in usage data to Gainsight Relationship record.
