The share menu

Invite people to view or collaborate Share icon

You can invite specific people or Google Groups to view or edit reports and data sources. Only those people or members of those groups can access your Data Studio assets. You can also share more broadly by turning on link sharing. This lets anyone in your organization or on the web view your Data Studio assets, even if they don't have a Google account.

A Google account is always required to edit reports and data sources.

Save a snapshot of your report by downloading it as PDF. You can then share the file offline via email, print it, archive it on disk, or do anything else you can do with PDF files. Learn more about downloading as PDF.

You can generate a short URL to a Data Studio report to share, use in web pages, or do anything else you can do with links. The link can include the report's current settings, such as filters and date ranges. Learn more about getting a report link.
