Introducing US2 Data Center

Gainsight currently has two main data centers for NXT tenants, EU Data Center and US Data Center. In this release, Gainsight introduces a new Data Center called US2 and with that Gainsight now has a total of three data centers as listed below:

  • EU Data Center: Covers the European Region and contains the customer data specific to the EU region only. 
  • US1 Data Center: Covers the US Region and contains data specific to the existing US customers only. 
  • US2 Data Center: Covers the US West 2 Oregon region and contains only new US customers' data as they are onboarded.

US2 Data Center has a separate Status Page available for US2 customers. This Status Page offers visibility into Gainsight System response and availability metrics for our US2 instance. A maintenance notification is sent to the subscribed customers whenever any changes take place in the products. Following are the status pages for three different instances:

Note: Users can enable notification of system incidents by subscribing to updates at the top of the status page.

IMPORTANT: US Customers cannot select their Data Center. All the existing customers will continue using their existing data center (US1) until the release date as scheduled. Whenever a new tenant is created, an email is sent to the new tenant informing them about which data center they belong to. All the new US customers will be provisioned in the US2 Data Center.

How to identify which data center your instance belongs to?

Log in to your instance (production environment), and check the URL in the browser. You can view the following details based on the data center you are part of:

  • EU Data Center, the URL contains eu present in the URL. Example,
    EU Data Center.png

  • US1 Data Center, the URL does not contain any region specific information in the URL. Example,

    US Data Center.png

  • US2 Data Center, the URLcontains us2 present in the URL. Example,

Note: URL will not show either eu or US2 in the following two scenarios:

  1. If users are logged in through Salesforce.
  2. If users are existing US customers.

How does the release pattern get changed with the new US2 in place?

  • EU NXT Major releases: In every quarter, the third Saturdays between 3 AM — 7 AM UTC
  • US2 NXT Major releases: In every quarter, the third Saturdays between 3 AM — 7 AM UTC (Along with EU NXT release)

undefined Create Leads in Gainsight and Send to Salesforce as Opportunities 

Gainsight introduces the ability to send the leads created in Gainsight to Salesforce as opportunities. At present, CSQLs can only be sent to Salesforce as leads. The process of converting a lead into an opportunity is time consuming because it involves cross-functional collaboration across multiple teams such as marketing and sales. Admins can select the Create Opportunities option from Renewal Center > Sync Options > Sync with Salesforce and send CSQLs to Salesforce as opportunities. Additionally, the CSMs can also create CSQLs without making any modifications to the SFDC Lead object. 

Additional information on this feature will be available in the Gainsight NXT Patch Release Notes Version 6.35.4.

Lastly, CSMs can confidently communicate the status of these requests back to their customers with direct views into where these have landed in regards to product planning. This seamless workflow enables CS to share customer feedback and helps prioritize the right features that will solve real customer needs and drive growth for the organization.
Auto.png Configure In-app and Email Notifications for Status Changes

The CSMs receive email and in-app notifications that contain the summary of status changes in the Enhancement Request and Roadmap Item. The email and in-app notifications are sent as a daily digest at 6 PM UTC time zone with a summary of all events that happened in the last 24 hours.

As a company, you have plenty of customer data available, but meaningful insights on these may be hard to find. You may have many teams that touch a customer, but no means to coordinate their actions. Gainsight accumulates and turns disparate customer data from multiple sources into a single source of truth. Review the Customer data-driven insights and deploy actions that drive business outcomes for your clients. Gainsight’s Horizon Analytics [Reports and Dashboards] are the reporting tools that power your business intelligence. They comprise several features that allow you to make the most of your data to generate business insights for your organization.
Auto.png Percentage Data Type and Aggregate Functions in Formula Fields

  1. Click the Formula Fields option in your report.
  2. From the Data Type dropdown menu, select Percentage.
  3. In the formula textbox, enter the following expression:
    SUM ( Revenue) ) / COUNT ( CSM )

Success Plans

Click here to expand for more information on Success Plans

Gainsight has now redesigned the Success Plan, powered by Gainsight Horizon Experience. The new Success Plans simplifies the product and improves the customer experience by adding new enhancements and enhancing existing functionalities.

Auto.png Restricted Sharing Permissions for Internal Collaborator License Type Users

Renewal Center helps Sales and Customer Success teams reduce churn, identify late renewals, and upsell existing accounts. By enriching Sales opportunities with Customer Success insights, Renewal Center enables teams to run their forecast reviews more effectively. The data science-based renewal likelihood score helps identify renewals most likely to churn based on customer health and engagement. Update forecasts and take immediate action so that your team can win every renewal on time.
Manual.png Account Based Forecasting
IMPORTANT: This feature will be available on or before February 4, 2023.

The account-based forecasting is for customers who want to start forecasting in the simplest way possible and does not have the requirements to manage opportunities. It is also for customers who are unable to use Salesforce Opportunities as a foundation for calculating retention metrics. 

The account-based forecasting brings the following benefits:

  • Forecast by account: The Company Forecast object in Data Management is preloaded with data from the Company object to give a starting point for forecasting by account.
  • Simpler Deployment: Helps to remove dependency from Salesforce opportunities. It also makes it easy to forecast with all CRMs.
  • Improved End User Experience: View the state of your forecast up front, understand which forecasts need to be updated, and save as you perform inline editing.

Account-based forecasting, once toggled on by the admin, displays a summary ribbon and the account-level details. The data in company forecast records is preloaded from the Company object. Summary Ribbon provides financial metrics for the shown accounts. They are updated automatically based on any change in the value of the underlying fields.

The company table contains account-level details like Renewal Date, Renewable Revenue, and GRR for each account. Users can update their forecast by updating Forecasted Revenue

IMPORTANT: Admins must toggle on the Show Company View button from the Renewal Center configuration to activate account-based forecasting for CSMs.

RC_Jan23 Release_CSMs Default Company View (1).png

Update needed indicators prompt CSMs to update their forecast if it has not been updated in a while. Admins can configure this feature from Renewal Center > Change Tracking > Update Needed Indicator.

RC_Jan23 Release_CSM Update Needed Indicator (1).png


Manual.png Load to GS Company Forecast Action in Rules Engine

Account-based forecasting brings the Load to GS Company Forecast rules action to help load data into the GS Company Forecast object. On initial enablement by admin users, the account-based forecasting is preloaded with data from the GS Company Forecast and Company objects. Admins can run this rule action to update any changes that occur in the data post the initial deployment.

In addition to this, users can run this rule to view data at the company level from a custom object. For example, the retention metrics like GRR and Forecasted Revenue are calculated using the ARR values from the Company object.

Note: The Load to GS Company Forecast is available in Bionic Rules and Horizon Rules (BETA).

Connectors 2.0 

Click here to expand for more information on Connectors 2.0

Connectors are integrations that are offered out-of-the-box so you can connect various data sources and sync their information to Gainsight.

 Community.png Manual.png Ability to Delete an Add to Destination Task in Connector Jobs  

Admins can now delete the Add to Destination task using the Delete option in the existing Connector jobs. This helps admins to modify existing jobs easily. Prior to this release, it was not possible to add or remove a Transform or Merge function from jobs with a destination task; admins had to create a new job afresh.

Example Business Use Case:  Consider that an admin wants to modify a complex or bulky schema that contains multiple objects, merges, and transformations. Previously, the admin could not add or remove Merge or Transform functions for such jobs and often ended up creating a new job. Now, with the availability of the Delete option in the Add to Destination task, the admin can easily delete destination tasks and modify existing jobs. 

For more information on how to delete Add to Destination, refer to the Preparation of Connector Jobs article.


Community.pngAuto.pngReal-Time Sync from Gainsight to SFDC

Gainsight now introduces the capability of bi-directional data synchronization between Salesforce and Gainsight CS in real-time. Hence, any update in the Account, Contact, or Cases objects data of Salesforce is reflected in real-time in the Company, Company person, and Cases objects of Gainsight, and vice versa. The real-time sync helps to manage records from multiple systems and eliminate latency to ensure up-to-date data and a seamless experience for the users.

For example, if the ARR attribute for a Company object is updated in Gainsight, this update is reflected in the Account object in Salesforce in the real-time.

Note: You can create only one real-time job for each object.

Connectors 1.png

For more information on how admins can create a Real-Time data job to transfer data from Gainsight to Salesforce using the Salesforce connector, refer to the Gainsight to Salesforce Real-Time Sync article.

Auto.png Gainsight Bulk API Limits
IMPORTANT: The Gainsight API Limits will be implemented from April 1st, 2023.

The  Gainsight Bulk API configures a data job to generate a URL command. This URL command loads the data into the target Gainsight object from the source CSV file, as configured in the data job. 

Gainsight has now defined limits for the Bulk API jobs executions as follows:

  • Bulk API limit per hour for a connection: 10
  • Bulk API limit per day for a connection: 100

For more information on the Bulk API process and creation, refer to the Gainsight Bulk API article.

Auto.png View all the Connections in the Connectors List Page 

The Sightline Integration Package contains the list of available connectors for an instance. Gainsight now enables this package by default for all the admin users to help them access the entire list of integrations from the Connectors List page. Previously, they could access only a limited number of connections.

Note: The Admins can view the list of connections. However, they can use a maximum of five connections if they do not have the Sightline integrations add-on.

For more information on the list of available connectors, refer to the Connections List Page  article.

Data Designer

Click here to expand for more information on Data Designer
Data Designer makes it easier for you to discover richer, more meaningful insights from your customer data. It provides a simple, easy-to-use solution to merge and transform your data, then make it accessible across the Gainsight platform for further analysis and exploration. 
Auto.png Build Data Designs Based on Custom Fiscal Period

Admins can now leverage the custom fiscal period configuration in Data Designer. Companies that work on custom fiscal periods often have difficulty presenting their reports or building their rules on financial data. To avoid complex workarounds and approximations, companies can leverage custom fiscal period settings. This helps to define a tailored fiscal year structure and build Data Designs based on the custom fiscal period.

Custom Fiscal period can be applied to Data and Date-Time fields using any of the following methods:

  • Apply Filters on Date and Date-Time fields.
  • Apply Transform task to the data design: Build designs on custom fiscal periods by adding date and date-time fields to GroupBy. Custom fiscal periods can also be added in Formula Fields for the Calendar, Fiscal Quarter and Fiscal Year functions.


Custom Fiscal year.jpg

Community.png Auto.pngView the Next Scheduled Run from the Design Listing Page 

Admins can now view the upcoming scheduled runs for the Data Designs on the Design list view page. Previously, admins had to open the Data Design and then navigate to the Configure tab to view the upcoming schedules of Data Design.

For more information on Next Schedule Run, refer to the Designs and Template Listing Page article.

Next Schedule Run.jpg

Gainsight Data Management

Click here to expand for more information on Data Designer
Gainsight Data Management supports an admin to create and manage Gainsight Objects directly from the Data Management page. As an analogy, a Gainsight Object and its field(s) can be thought of as a database table and its columns. Data Management can be accessed from Administration > Data Management.
 Community.png Auto.pngEnhanced Record Search using Display Record Name Field

Gainsight introduces Display Record Name Field for objects. While searching for records in Data Management, admins can now use names for objects rather than GSID. This enhancement simplifies the admin experience of viewing, searching, and editing data. For example, consider that you create records with Company names in the Display Record Name Field of type GSID in a Low Volume Custom Object that has look-ups to Company. You can now find the records using the Company names while adding or editing records.

Display Record name.png


  • Admins can configure the Display Record Name Field from the newly added Settings tab. The Identifers configuration can be performed from this tab as well.
  • The Display Record Name Field for Company, Relationship, Relationship Type, User, Person, and Anonymous Person objects are set by default. 
  • This field is available only for custom objects. It is pre-set for standard objects and customizable for low-volume custom objects.

For more information on editing objects, refer to the Gainsight Objects article.

Rules Engine

Click here to expand for more information on Rules Engine
Rules Engine is designed to improve your underlying customer data to produce superior customer outcomes. It can perform powerful multi-step, in-memory data transformations for large datasets in Gainsight within one rule. Transformations include aggregations, multi-dataset merges, formulas, and time-series calculations; helping your team to better identify meaningful data signals.
Auto.png Horizon.pngHorizon Rules Engine (BETA)

Gainsight has redesigned the Rules Engine, powered by Gainsight Horizon Experience. The new Rules Engine comes with an enriched visual experience to make it easier for the admins to build and understand rules. In addition to the enhanced user experience, many new features are added and the existing functionalities are improved.

  • Single object flow
  • Improved data preparation experience using Data Designer
  • Visual action setup
