Mark Reports as Quick Insights

Gainsight NXT


In this article, learn about the Quick Insights feature in Gainsight Sally and how Admins can define insights which can be used for advanced querying in Sally.


With Gainsight Sally, your company can access real-time customer insights sitting inside Gainsight org within Slack. The Quick Insights feature takes this ability further and makes rich Gainsight data easily accessible to Sally users. It helps users access more specific information by simply typing Quick Insight in the chat window as shown in the following images.

IMPORTANT: Customers who have access to Sally and onboarded to the new Horizon Analytics will only be able to access the upgraded Quick Insights in Slack.

For more information, refer to the Quick Insights in Slack using Sally (For End-Users) article.

What is Quick Insights and why use them?

A Quick Insights is a powerful way of giving access to rich data insights to the end-users from Sally. It is essentially a report tailored to the presentation needs and constraints of Sally channels like Slack. Admins can configure reports as Quick Insights and end-users can use them from Sally for richer data access than possible today. For example, Show the list of high priority cases that were flagged at high risk. To bridge that gap, Gainsight introduces the Quick Insights feature which helps users access the specific information just by typing ‘Quick Insights’ in the chat window.

Reports can be marked as Quick Insights by Admins from Administration > Report Builder. For more information, refer to the Create Quick Insights section in this article.

Target Audience

This feature is primarily intended for the following audience:

  • Administrators who want to create insights with specific names and criteria, insight types, configure insights, tune insight performance etc. This helps administrators to make richer insights in Gainsight data available for their end-users.
  • Sally in Slack end-users who want to easily access rich insights from Gainsight through Sally.
