New Google Ads fields

You'll now see the following fields in new or refreshed Google Ads data sources:

New sample data sources

Sample Google Analytics and Google Ads data sources are being updated so they can use new fields launched in the past year. These data sources are used by several of the sample reports in the Data Studio Template Gallery.

If you've made copies of these sample reports and wish to keep using them, we recommend you replace the old data sources with these updated data sources, when they are available.

A new version of the [Sample] Google Analytics data source is now available here.

The [Sample] Google Ads data source will be updated the week of July 20th, 2020. In addition to new Google Ads fields, 2 obsolete fields have been removed: Avg. Position for Auction and Avg. position. Charts that use these fields will display a configuration error, which you can fix by editing the report, selecting any broken charts, and removing or replacing the obsolete fields.
