 undefined 1._community_logo.png Pooled Work Assignment
IMPORTANT:  Contact the Gainsight Support Team to enable this feature for your tenant.

Admins can now automate the distribution of CTAs by assigning the ownership to predefined User Groups. Whenever a CTA is triggered, the ownership is allocated to one of the CSMs from the assigned User Group. The CTAs are distributed equally among the CSMs (using the Round Robin algorithm) that are part of the selected User Group.

 Admins can select the User Group that need to own the CTAs to  from Administration > General > Mass Edit. They can also select the User Group in the Owner field while creating a rule from Rules Engine.

Business Use Case: The Rules Engine triggers a new CTA to be created for a company if the  average NPS drops below a predefined limit.

Automating the distribution of the ownership helps solve this problem and ensures that the necessary steps are implemented on time.
