Delete Recordings where Customer Doesn't Attend
Hey Gong Community!Is there a way to easily find all calls that the customer doesn’t end up attending, so that I can delete them? Or better yet, is there a way to have them automatically deleted? I’ve found some calls where our reps are on the line for ten minutes talking to each other, and then the call ends because the customer never showed up. We don’t want to have those calls as it affects our overall call data.

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?
Best practices for tracking Solution Consultant Insights?
Hi all,I’m trying to figure out a better way to track the way our SC’s position our solutions on their calls. The problem is that our SCs do not “own” the calls they participate in - the AE does. Because they do not “own” the call, Gong doesn’t seem to be able to track the topics and trackers that they trigger on their calls.Does anyone have any best practices on how they use Gong to measure Solution Consultant productivity and efficiency? Thank you!

ICYMI: You Asked, Amit Answered!
Thanks to everyone who joined us this morning for our AMA about AI and Gong with Gong CEO @Amit Bendov, moderated by Udi Ledergor. Here are just a few of the insights Amit shared: AI isn’t replacing Salespeople. It’s supporting them. It’s helping you automate redundant, mundane tasks, giving you more time to do the parts of your job you enjoy most: helping your customers solve their problems. AI should help you in the background. Just as people aren’t required to develop special skills to drive a Tesla, AEs and ICs shouldn’t have to stay ahead of the AI curve to benefit from it. AI should serve as an assistant to help you automate mundane tasks, surface and prioritize your most critical actions for the day, and give you insights that help you make more informed decisions. The most important skill for sellers is problem-solving; understanding a customer’s business and delivering value by helping them solve problems. Focus on these skills, and let AI help you in the background. Gong
Using Gong's calls API, any way to sort results by date descending? Meaning getting the most recently recorded calls first.
We are using the calls API to get the Gong calls for our customers, but that endpoint returns results from the earliest recorded calls to the latest. Meaning we have to paginate all the way to the end, which can be a lot, to get to the latest calls. Is there any for that endpoint to give us the data in the reverse order? with the latest calls coming first. Thanks!

What’s your best piece of advice for getting stakeholder buy-in?
After completing this certification, and getting first hand experience using Gong, I can see the first hand benefits of using this platform for all roles in revenue operations functions. Speaking from experience, my company recently made the switch from Chorus to Gong, and have thoughts on getting stakeholder buy-in.One of my biggest pieces of advices for getting buy-in and hyping up the team for a tool change is to commit to gathering feedback. Get a group of power users together that are tech savvy and maybe have used Gong in the past. Collect feedback from these folks as they are going to have key insights into how the changes can work across the org. Collect feedback often from stakeholders throughout the rollout process (people want their feedback heard, even for small changes). This way, you can build trust, address concerns early, and demonstrate a commitment to making Gong for everyone involved.

VisioneersTV S1 E1: How Courtney Tucci tracked her Gong rollout and adoption at Mirakl
Welcome to season one, episode one of Visioneers TV featuring @Courtney_Mirakl, Director of Sales Enablement at Mirakl! On this premiere episode, Courtney shares her best tips and tricks for fellow Sales Enablement Managers who are rolling out and tracking the adoption of Gong at their organization. Here are just five of the countless nuggets of gold that Courtney shared during this interview: Make a launch day checklist. Courtney’s checklist consisted of calendar blocks, email drafts, Slack drafts, screenshots of the tasks that her Gong implementation partner had outlined for her, and lots of coffee. Train your teams early on to overcome potential challenges. For example, Courtney made sure that her team knew exactly what to do if their prospects owned the calendar invite. Use previous Gong users at your organization to champion your rollout. Ahead of your launch, find out if there are any previous Gong users at your organization to get the rest of your team on board.

Can I filter by a field not being empty vs a specific value?
I’m creating a deal board for more complex deals that require executive sponsorship. The way this is indicated is by whether or not a rep fills out an open-text field “Additional Support Needed by ELT” explaining what they specifically need help on/what makes it a complex deal (Example: Prospect sent us an NDA that potentially exposes us to x,y,z--need legal team review). Because each of these values will be unique, is there any value I can put in the filter that is essentially Additional Support Required = Not empty/is known/Not Blank?
