Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a Topic?

A: A Topic is simply how a person shapes their conversation, and the collection of topics they put it into a conversation is how they structure that overall meeting. And since our AI & machine learning algorithm identifies patterns and trends in common talk tracks across your organization, Topics are unique and specific to your company. 


Q: Where can I see Topics?

A: Reviewing a Call, Calls page, Team > Stats page, Account, and Whisper.


Q: How they are different than Trackers?

A:  Below are the differences:

  • Trackers are specific terms you define that you want to track.

  • Topics are subjects covered in a meeting identified by Gong’s AI & Machine Learning.


Q: How is the main topic calculated?


  • Out of all the times any topic is mentioned, the main topic is mentioned at least a certain percentage of the time. The percentage is determined by Gong on a per-company basis.

    Example: If a call has a total of 10 minutes where specific identified topics were discussed, and "set up" was discussed for a minute, the longest time spent on any specific topic in the call, then "set up" is flagged as the main topic.

  • If more than one topic is mentioned more than the required percentage, the topic with the highest percentage is considered the main topic.


Q: What should be my next steps?

A:  Watch the recording and use the resources below to learn more about Topics.  Then, talk with your Gong CSM to implement a cohesive strategy utilizing Topics effectively and to leverage Topic data for insights via our Whisper Analysis.
