Accessing dashboards from anywhere is an excellent resource for users who are on the move or who do not have access to a computer or laptop all the time. Gainsight Mobile app provides this resource to all mobile app users.

Gainsight Dashboard is a collection of reports and widgets, which help users track and analyze the customer success data.

Users can access the Dashboards on their mobile devices and tablets, provided they have the necessary permissions assigned to them by admins. Users can switch between multiple dashboards. Users can also apply rules on the global filters that are already set at the web application level.

For more information on how admins can assign dashboards to users, refer to the Dashboard Permissions article in the Additional Resources section at the end of this article.

Example Business Use Cases:

  • CSMs want to access their dashboards (configured by my admins) anywhere.
  • CSMs want to get insights into the renewal dashboard from their phone or tablet.
