Exporting Questions Asked
One thing I’m coaching to right now is the TYPE of questions my reps are asking. I’m noticing that the reps that are underperforming centre their questions around (what i call) “Solutioning” the customers problems. The better reps are focus on business questions and questions about the evaluation process and criteria. I’ve manually exported all questions in a call to a spreadsheet so I could tag each question as Solutioning, Business, Pricing/Admin, Deal Process.Control, etc. But maybe there is any easier way to export every question?
Gong Call Library
Hello -I have been using the Gong Call Library for years, but feel very limited by it’s functionaity. If possible could I suggest: Bulk adding of calls Less steps to add a call. Right now you have to go to the call page, select a folder, and click add. I would prefer if you could just click “add to library” from the listing of calls without having to click into the call page. The ability to drag and drop calls into the libraryThank you,Kelly

Need help with Sandler Sales Trackers
Hi all! My colleagues and I have implemented some Sandler Sales trackers in Gong but they’re super broad and aren’t pulling in calls with the precision we’d like. Does anyone have some awesome Sandler trackers they’d be willing to share? Here are some examples of our trackers that are way too general!
GONG’s Guide to GAP Selling
GAP Selling is an increasingly popular sales methodology that relies on closing a gap between your prospect’s current and future state. If your team has recently switched to GAP Selling, or are thinking about it, fear not - Gong can help!Configuring Gong after adopting new messaging is crucial in tracking its adoption and success. As a CSM here at Gong, the first place I suggest my customers start is Trackers. For GAP Selling, I suggest breaking your Trackers into 6 pieces: Current State, Problem, Root Cause, Emotion, Future State, and Solution. Feel free to leverage GONG’s Guide to Gap Selling and the base Trackers below. Do not forget to customize these trackers further for your industry, product names, product value, discovery questions, and use cases!GAP SELLING Current State:current state, doing currently, doing now, have in place, have set up currently, have today, looks like today, process look like today, process today, program in place, tell me about what that looks like now,
14 Tips for Building, Scoring, and Analyzing Scorecards
Scorecards create visibility that benefits reps, managers, the team, and the organization at large.

Tracking feature tags for voice of customer
Hi, all! I help run Voice of the Customer at my company and we record all of our Customer Success calls with Gong. We currently track feedback in our product via feature request tags (we have about 700!) that we relate to specific customers in our home grown CRM. Right now, we manually tag customers based on emails, Gong calls, Slack messages, etc. and I am trying to see how we can automate this process. I know the trackers exist, but there aren’t necessarily always phrases or specific words that correlate directly with a feature request tag. I would love to be able to capture more complex feature requests and feedback snippets ideally by flagging them automatically, or alternatively, capturing them manually after the call, using our existing feature tag nomenclature. Then, I’d like to have that pulled into our product (more of a nice to have!). Any tips? I’ve seen some similar questions, but not something specific to using tags in this way.
Small talk trackers issue?
Anyone else having this issue where the Trackers (eg for Small Talk) page is empty? I was inspired to go check it out off the back of this excellent post by @Dana Feldman for anyone who might have missed it: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6930269921096441857/(As you can prob tell I’m itching to see what my aggregated small talk stats are and how they compare!)
How to Implement Trackers in 3 Simple Steps
[Written in collaboration with Julian Gonzalez VP, Strategic Sales & Enablement at Briq. Thank you @Julian for the excellent examples, and expert perspective.] Trackers are an important building block to get the most value from Gong. They allow users to understand what is being spoken about in both calls and emails. Gong comes with a handful of out of the box trackers (Process, Budget, Authority, Timing etc.), and over the course of rolling out and evolving Gong we create additional trackers to help us understand specific mentions, processes, messaging and so much more that is unique to our company. If you aren't using trackers at your organization, it may be because you're not sure why they're valuable or how to set them up. First, let’s dive into why trackers matter so much: Trackers help: Inform what sales people are talking about Identify risk (e.g. Competitive mention in a late stage cycle) Dispel or confirm beliefs and/or your intuition (e.g About your competition, your
Call Categories vs Libraries
Can anyone explain why one would use call categories vs call libraries? Now with the ‘stream’ capabilities, it feels like the exact same thing, but one shows in the form of ‘folders’ and the other in form of ‘reports’ -- both can be automated based on filters and both can send notifications when a new call meets the criteria… Thanks
Can I send notifications through gong trackers?
I was looking to set up a new tracker in Gong, but also wanted it to send notifications to certain people whenever that tracker gets another hit. Is sending notifications through Gong trackers possible / something we can do? I see a “email notifications” checkbox when I create a tracker but can’t find where to configure that feature.
Has anyone created sentiment trackers to identify ecstatic as well as frustrated clients?
Our implementation team is also using Gong. This helps them prepare for the kick-off (along with the knowledge transfer process from the AE). They also use Gong to record all their implementation calls and management gets visibility into progress and the discussions when necessary. We’re looking to create a couple of trackers to identify clients with strongly positive, or concerningly negative sentiment during the implementation process. The negative sentiment will serve as a very early warning system so we can help our team get ahead of any challenges. Has anyone used trackers in this way? Any examples you can share? Any concerns?
Is there something like a NEAR function for Trackers?
Hi everyone, I am currently working on building Trackers to accurately document when certain integrations are discussed on recorded Gong calls. I’m running into a problem where I can’t get an accurate search on popular softwares with the term “integration” said in the sentence. Example: I am trying to create a Tracker that tracks when a customer talks about a “Salesforce Integration”. However if I use that exact phrase, I miss out on sentences that contain the words “Salesforce” and “integrations”, if they are not said exactly in the way of the Tracker. However, if I simply use the phrase, “Salesforce” I will get a lot of false positives in my results. Is there a way to configure Trackers so that it picks up terms near each other? If there’s a way to search for “Salesforce” that’s within, say, 10 words of the word “Integration”, that would be ideal. Please let me know your workarounds or best practices! Thank you!
