Hi there,

Gainsight newbie here and slowly getting the hang of things!

We use the timeline on the C360 to add risks as an activity type. I was wondering if anyone had any experience in setting up a connection with this in a slack channel? Ideally I would like it so that every time a new risk is added, our account managers can see this in the slack channel, is this possible?

I have spoken with GS support on this and sadly I am really struggling to get a clear answer!

Not natively through Gainsight that I know of.  We created an internal Slack app with a webhook through which we have External Actions created to send messages to various Slack channels from the Rules Engine and/or JO.

It’s custom and rather complicated though tbh.

This is essentially what we use to achieve this use case. 

@chelseahopkins we don’t have it currently. We send notifications in slack only when the users are tagged.
