Gainsight Home Overview

Gainsight NXT


This article provides an overview of Gainsight Home.


A typical day-to-day life of Customer Success Managers (CSMs) / Account Managers (AMs) involves a lot of interactions and attending multiple meetings with customers and other stakeholders. When CSMs/AMs access multiple C360 pages and timeline for their customers one after the other multiple customer accounts, it becomes challenging at times for the CSMs/AMs to manage a lot of browser tabs and wait for pages to load. Sometimes,  a physical note seems easy just not to miss a track of the customer interactions. 

All these challenges are resolved with Gainsight Home which is designed to provide a centralized view of the insights and action items for the portfolio of customer accounts. The one-stop workspace for CSMs not only simplifies day-to-day customer success activities but also gives easy access to relevant information and actions, and makes their work more productive.

Admins configure Gainsight Home from Administration > Gainsight Home. For more information on how admins configure Gainsight Home, refer to the Configure Gainsight Home article.

Note: Gainsight Home is available only to Full License users. Viewer+ Analytics and Viewer License users continue to see the Dashboards and Timeline respectively as their home page. For more information on user license types in the Gainsight, refer to the Gainsight License Types of the User License Management article.
