Meeting Assist Overview

This article explains how Meetings Assist helps the CSMs to capture notes and meeting summary effectively.


Meeting Assist, powered by Generative AI, transforms the way Customer Success Managers (CSMs) work. CSMs handle a high volume of daily calls, and Meeting Assist streamlines the process by automating note-taking, tracking action items, and identifying potential risks and issues, and adds the synopsis to the Timeline Activity. This allows CSMs to focus on their clients, instead of spending time on post-meeting follow-ups and manual note transfers. Meeting Assist ensures that every crucial information is automatically captured and organized, making CSMs' work more efficient and easy.

IMPORTANT: Meeting Assist is available only for customers.

Prerequisite: The Gong connection in Gainsight must be reauthorized before turning on the Generative AI toggle.

Empower User Data Control

At Gainsight, the focus is on transparency, control and hence, Generative AI toggle is introduced to ensure protection of data. The Generative AI toggle gives administrators the power to switch on or off the AI functionality. By default, it is turned off. For more information, refer to the Overview of Generative AI Toggle: Empowering User Data Control article.

Automated Summary

The automated summary section provides a short and crisp outline of the meeting, thereby making it easy for you to quickly capture any essential details. These summaries not only save time but also facilitate efficient communication and decision making, as they ensure that crucial information is readily available and well-organized for future reference. 

You can edit the automated summary using the Edit option. For more information, refer to the Edit Notes section.


  • If transcripts are not available for the meeting, automated summary cannot be generated.
  • If transcripts are provided in a language other than English, these transcripts will also be summarized in English, provided that Generative AI is capable of performing the translation.
  • The meeting summary captures up to 32000 characters, however you can add extra notes if needed. 

Edit Notes

The host of the meeting can edit or add notes to the automated notes generated from Gong Activities. To edit or add information to the notes:

  1. From the three vertical dots icon, click Edit.

Note: Gainsight recommends that you check the notes generated by Meeting Assist and filter out irrelevant or random items picked up by AI. 

Automated Risks and Issues

Automated risks are potential issues or concerns that are identified in a meeting. For example, if the customer temperature is red or if there are any critical escalations, such items are mentioned in the Automated Risks & Issues section.

Note: When a manual activity that is authored by the same person and related to the same company is generated and imported from, such duplicate activities are consolidated into a single entry within the Timeline Activity list.


Sentiment provides an overall impression of the meeting's atmosphere, such as whether it was positive, negative, or neutral. For instance, if the meeting went well, all attendees had a good experience, with all their questions answered, it would be considered positive.
