Filter by the signed-in user's email address
You can now filter a data source to show just the records containing the current signed-in viewer's email address. This provides "row-level security" to the data. Note that your data must contain an email field, and that viewers must consent to allowing Data Studio to pass their email address to the data source.
Improved support for multiple accounts
Do you sign into multiple Google accounts at once? The new account switcher lets you select one of your other signed-in accounts should you try to access a Data Studio asset created by or shared with an account other than your primary account. Your primary account is the first one you signed into in your browser.
Note that you may also see this page if the report or data source you're trying to access doesn't exist.
Support for Hotel campaigns in Google Ads
You can now see your Hotel ads campaign data in Data Studio reports. This data automatically appears in your Ads-connected reports. There is no need to refresh the data source.
