Introduction to Data Studio

Learn the basics of using Data Studio.

Data Studio is currently a free beta product. Although we try hard to make sure the product functions properly, features may change without notice.

Visualize your data

Data Studio turns your data into informative, easy to read, easy to share, and fully customizable dashboards and reports. Use the drag and drop report editor to:

  • Tell your data story with charts, including line, bar, and pie charts, geo maps, area and bubble graphs, paginated data tables, pivot tables, and more.
  • Make your reports interactive with viewer filters and date range controls. The data control turns any report into a flexible template report that anyone can use to see their own data.
  • Include links and clickable images to create product catalogs, video libraries, and other hyperlinked content.
  • Annotate and brand your reports with text and images.
  • Apply styles and color themes that make your data stories works of data visualization art.

Connect to your data

Reports in Data Studio get their information from one or more data sources. Using the Data Sources tool, you can easily connect to wide variety of data, without programing. In just a few moments, you can connect to data sets such as:

  • Google Analytics
  • Google Sheets
  • AdWords
  • BigQuery
  • SQL databases
  • YouTube
  • Search Console
  • DoubleClick Campaign Manager
  • CSV file upload
  • Google Cloud Storage
  • Attribution 360

In addition, you can access virtually any kind of data using connectors created by 3rd party developers via the Community Connectors program.

Share and collaborate

Data Studio reports and data sources are stored as files on Google Drive. Just as in Drive, it's easy to share your files with individuals, teams, or the world. To tell your data stories as broadly as possible, embed your reports in other pages, such as Google Sites, blog posts, marketing articles, and annual reports. 

When you share a report or data source with another editor, you can work together in real time as a team on the same files.
