What an EXCELLENT video!!! Speaks clearly, explains properly what they're doing - thank you soo much Spencer!! Not Spencers fault, but I dont seem to be able to make the video full screen, but I could still see it, just would be much nicer full screen.

Thanks for the nice feedback, Richard! It looks like the full-screen issue is a formatting issue within our Community page. For future reference, you can click on the Vimeo link itself, which will take you to Vimeo, where you can view this full-screen. 
Doh! - Thanks Spencer, yep, I can see it full screen now.

Here is the vimeo link to full screen https://player.vimeo.com/video/258339549. My favorite video I reference for my customers often - thanks Spencer!


Hey Spencer! This video was exactly what I needed - thanks! Is there anyway that the mapped field can also be enabled for use with Global reporting filters? I can see the field that I mapped in reporting, but when I try to include is as a global filter within reporting, it's not there. Is this functionality that doesn't exist of am I doing something wrong?

Hi @jamoreman - great question. You should be able to use that field in a global filter. The only gotcha to watch out for is if you potentially mapped a picklist to a string, a datetime to a date, or something like that. In order to use fields from different objects in a global filter, the field types have to be the exact same.

Important update to this video: Everything in this tutorial is still relevant except you will now be using the Salesforce Connector rather than Gainsight Connect.
