Data Transformation

Once you have your raw data, it often needs to be transformed into more complete and meaningful information. Data Studio turns your data’s dimensions and metrics into powerful building blocks for charts and graphs.

  • Explorer

    Get insights from your data quickly, without needing to know or write SQL queries. Data Studio now has a dedicated space for fast, ad-hoc querying where you can explore a data table visually with just one click.
  • Calculated Metrics

    Use powerful solutions to create new metrics or dimensions based on custom formulas. Formulas can include fields from the data source, literal text, and numeric values. You can also apply arithmetic, logical, comparison, unary and binary operators, as well as more sophisticated functions.
  • Functions

    Data Studio provides dozens of mathematical, string, date, and other functions to transform your data into more useful values. You can use these functions individually or combine them with other functions and operators to create sophisticated calculated fields.

Data Visualization

Whether you’re tweaking an existing report or starting from scratch, Data Studio offers visualization and customization solutions that help you engage and persuade with an engaging data story.

  • Customizations

    Data Studio allows you to customize every aspect of your reports and dashboards. Add logos and icons; change the background, fill, line, and text colors; and choose from an array of fonts, line styles, and object properties to make your data come to life. And once you have a style that works, it’s easy to make it a reusable, sharable template.
  • Data Control

    Easily and quickly give viewers a way to select the data they want to see in a report from multiple sources — including Analytics, Google Ads, Search Console, YouTube, and Campaign Manager — eliminating the need to create a separate reports for various account views.
  • Dynamic Controls

    Insert dynamic controls to allow viewers to dynamically change the data presented, including date ranges and dimension filters like geography, segment, or channel.
  • Shapes and Images

    Easily add shapes, images, and text to your reports and dashboards to make them easier to read and highlight important aspects of the data.
  • Visualizations

    Choose from a broad array of charts, graphs, pivot tables and visualizations to bring your data to life. These include time series, bar charts, pie charts, tables, heat maps, geo maps, scorecards, scatter charts, bullet charts, and area charts. Each visualization has built-in comparison functions, making it easy to see changes in the data period over period.

Sharing and Collaboration

Democratize your data and tap into the collective wisdom of your team by sharing and collaborating on all your Data Studio reports and dashboards.

  • Built-in Sharing
